Don’t worry; we won’t be shakin’ anything today, or ever. The post title has nothing to do with today’s post- NOTHING. To be honest, this morning I heard the song, and thought it’d be a fun post title. So for all you that were prepared to shake it, I’m sorry to disappoint you. However, I am going to talk about Date 2 with Guy #5. Hopefully, that brightened your spirits?
Guy #5 and I met through a friend. She thought we’d be prefect together. I’ve discovered we’re not, and now I’m questioning if this friend even knows me! I’m kidding, it wasn’t that bad. Since I didn’t do a break down for the first date, I figured I’d do a break down for the second date…
I don’t even have to tell you guys how much I enjoy food. So food is high on my list!
Guy #5 took me to one of my favorite restaurants-good thing. HOWEVER, he did not pick the restaurant-very bad thing. When he picked me up I asked where we were going to eat. He replied- I don’t know, where you want to go. STRIKE ONE! Guys for the love of goodness, when you ask a girl out on a date HAVE A PLAN! GOT IT- have a plan! Side note on this issue: Guy #5 did this on our first date too, but I let it slide because it was a first date. But despite the strike one, the food was amazing! I’m giving him a five because he agreed to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, but at the same time I took five points away because I had to pick the restaurant. If I didn’t like this particular place so much, I’d deduct six points. Yes, I feel that strongly about this issue.
He talks, therefore he gets four points. Actually, at the restaurant we had good conversation. We talked about our faith and views on religion. However, after our religion conversation it was difficult to find other topics.
Here’s the problem he enjoys his job, which is something I really like in a guy. But, he and I work in the same industry, to be more specific the same department, just different companies. So when he talks about work (which he does often), it’s like having a conversation with one of my coworkers. And I don’t want to have a conversation with one of my coworkers on a date. I would say most of our date was spent discussing work. I even tried to steer the conversation to other topics, but it always led back to work. By the end of the date I took the SCREW IT attitude and just let him talk about anything, which was work.
Guy #5 is very nice. He’s a genially nice guy. He is polite and seems to be a caring guy.
No complaints in this area.
As you can read, not such a hot second date. I mean, it wasn’t horrible, but I’m not rushing for a third date. Guy #5, as I said earlier, is a really nice guy. He’s a Christian, has a great job, and seems to have a good head on his shoulders. All things I look for in a guy. I hate that I’m not interested. However, he’s not for me. My friends tell me I should give him another chance, but I don’t think that will happen. Why continue this act when I know it’s not going to work out? Oh well, it was nice to go out on a few dates.
