I'm a believer

"If you build it, he will come.”

I took advice from the “voice” in the movie Field of Dreams. Well, I didn’t build anything, I wrote something. I actually changed the famous movie quote to fit my circumstances. In my head the famous quote know reads, “If you write about no dates, he will ask.” So I did as the voice commanded. I wrote about no dates, and waited. I waited for a whole day and you know what? The date invitations came. They came! The voice was right. Field of Dreams is the greatest movie of all time! All right, not really the greatest movie of all time.

Last week I wrote a post explaining Holly and I’s YOY (Year of Yes). I spent the entire post complaining about being asked out by three different guys and none of them taking the time to take me out on a date. You know, that whole scenario still blows my mind. Anyway, Thursday evening Guy #1 and Guy #3 set plans to take me out on a real date.
Cue: Hallelujah song and angels dropping from the sky.
I thought the visual was a nice touch too. Anyway, back to my story. By the time I had left class on Thursday night, I had secured plans with Guy # 3 for Sunday evening. Guy #1 and I were still trying to coordinate our schedules, but still I was a step closer than earlier in the day.

As of today, January 15, 2008, Guy #3 and I have successfully completed a date. Guy #1 and I are still trying to coordinate our schedules. He’s really not grasping that I have a life. Despite what you’ve read on this blog, I do not sit around knitting and waiting for people to make plans with me. Really, I don’t!

So the moral of this post is believe everything you see in the movies. I sit here testifying that, “If you write about no dates, he will ask.”

How'd date with #3 go?!?!? Details necessary!

Oh and if #1 is already having issues comprehending you have a life, he might not be worth the one date.

Wow. Congratulations! Modeling your dating life after a baseball movie. I never would have thought of that.
