Date w/ Guy # 3

Before I went off to explore the WEST coast (thanks hub), I promised to post about my date with Guy #3. I stand (or sit) here ready to fulfill the promise. Hopefully, this will satisfy Kara. Although, Kara’s update on McSleazy and Running Guy were hardly updates. They were more like one-line teasers. However, I will take Kara’s one-line teasers over nothing.

So Guy # 3 and I went out a few weeks ago. Was it really a few weeks ago? Yea, I guess it was…wow time flies. Anyway, Guy # 3 and I met for dinner. I’ll breakdown/rate the dinner part of the date for everyone….

Food (9)
Food ranks high on my list! I like to eat and I like to eat good food. Guy #3 scored points by taking me to a good restaurant and a non-chain restaurant.
Conversation (9)
We had plenty to talk about throughout the meal. I never felt the awkward silence. But then again, I never have those awkward silences on dates. Maybe I talk too much?
Politeness (5)
He’s getting points taken off because he asked me to meet him at the restaurant. If this hadn’t been a date I wouldn’t have minded. I’m an independent gal. I’m fully capable to get myself to and from places. I’m a supporter of the, ‘I am women hear me roar’ mentality; but on a date it’s just nice to be picked up!
He redeemed himself by giving me a gift. Everyone loves gifts, and unexpected gifts are the best! Other than making me meet him at our restaurant he was very polite.

After dinner went to the movies. I’m not usually a fan of going to the movies on a first date. But oddly enough, I was ok with going to see a movie. I believe it had something to do with all the exercise I had done earlier in the day. When it was time for our movie to start I was ready to just sit back and not think.
There’s not much to report about the movie portion of the date. Guy #3 asked if there were any movies I wanted to see. I said no, which was a lie. I’ve been dying to see Enchanted with McDreamy. It looks SO cute, but I didn’t dare suggest that movie. I would NEVER make a guy go see a girlie movie. Instead, we went to see I Am Legend. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie. It was better than I expected, but I had very LOW standards for the movie. I think Guy #3 was disappointed in the movie, but he thought it was going to be a great movie. I went into the theater thinking the movie was going to blow chucks, so I came out liking it better than him.

It was a good date. The next day there was talk of a second date. A few plans have been thrown out but none have made it to my calendar. I’ll keep you posted.

Update on Guy #1: he’s still trying to coordinate his schedule.

last time i checked, portland was on the west coast. did it move?

LB said...

did you have fun in portland? was it a relief from the oklahoma wind? did you visit powell's? what are some of your favorite books? can I ask you any more questions?

I have piles of books next to my bedside table. There are five next on my list: "Importance of Being Foolish" and "Ruthless Trust" by Manning, a book of short stories by Jorge Luis Borges, and "Walden." I do need some nice, fluffy fiction to rest my head on if you have any recommendations :)

LB said...

yes, keep us updated about the men in your life!

OK Chick said...

Thanks hub! My geography sucks. Actually I know that Portland is on the west coast, I don't know why I said east. Maybe because I want to go to the east cost?

LB- Portland was very fun! I'll post about it tomorrow.
Oh I know all about fluffy fiction. My favorite that you must read is What a Girl Wants by Kristin Billerbeck. She has two series that are AMAZING! What a Girl Wants is the first book in one of her series. I highly recommend them. Also, Book of Jane by Anna and May (there blog is on my list-Good Girl Lit) is a great book. Ok, that is a good start. I know you'll love the books by Kristin Billerbeck. All my friends have enjoyed her books.

Kara said...

I'm sorry!

But seriously updating McSleazy would take like the biggest blog novel in the world (yes it was really that bad) so I figured a one liner was better than nothing until I actually have time to write it all up in all its sleazy horrific detail!

Guy #3 sounds like a goodie :)

Holly said...

Lindsy, I am Legend is a zombie movie. It is totally a terrible movie. I am sorry, he is losing points in my book just for that.

OK Chick said...

As you can see, my friends are hard-core!

So, I was also going to participate in the YOY. However, I ran into the creep that I went out on a date with this summer Sat night. He asked me on another date and asked what had happened to me since I didn't return his calls or texts for two weeks. I had to tell him no. Well, I was with my friend Tim who pretended to be my b-friend. So, this leaves one question, what if you say yes to a dud who then wants another date. Do you say yes again or it is only YOY and you get one chance??

OK Chick said...

You only have to say yes once.

Kara said...

To confirm this. YOY rules are clear - the rules only apply to the first (and too frequently only!) date. Feel free to say no, no, never, not in this lifetime, I would rather watch paint dry etc. subsequent requests!

TC said...

I totally recommend Enchanted :) If you can make it through the first 20 minutes, you're golden. I didn't know what it was about and my best friend drug me. I almost walked out, and then it got good.

So... is there another date with #3 in the works?!?!?!

Guy #3 said...

you forgot the part where you walked out of the movie to talk on your cell phone.
