It keeps getting better and better folks! This week my match was described to me as:
- Name: Mike
- Age: 29
- Description: light brown hair, blue eyes, 5’8″, rugged
- Occupation: Computer Programer
As Mike walked in to Jackson’s (20 minutes late) I thought, “Thank God, at least this one is cute.” And then he opened his mouth:
Mike (in a very angry tone): “I’m Mike”
Julie: “Hi Mike, its nice to meet you”
Mike (in a very angry tone): “Sorry I’m late, this A** Hole customer kept me on the phone for 30 minutes.”
Julie: “That’s ok, did you have a bad day?”
Mike: *launches into a 5 minute angry rant full of expletives.
Not exactly the best start to a date right? To give Mike some credit, he did calm down after 5 minutes and he was able to shake his anger and have a great conversation. However, once we got to talking, I quickly realized the information I had been given on Mike was incorrect. He was no computer programer, he serviced John Deer tractors! And even better he had been raised on a farm where they raised and slaughtered cows and pigs, and grew corn and other vegetables.
Even though there was definitely an attraction and the conversation was interesting, our lifestyles are definitely different. He wants to move to Kentucky within a year, live the country life, and raise a family. However, I’m no country girl and I’m not in the business of wasting anyone’s time so I probably will not be seeing Farmer Pete again.
It’s Just NOT Lunch
This week I found my own date! When SJ introduced me, she mentioned that I had tapped out Match.com. I thought that I had too until I continued to get emails in my account. Out of curiousity, I signed up for a 3-Day trial. No good potentials were in my inbox but within a few hours a mystery man with no picture sent me a “wink.” It just so happened that he was online when I read his profile so I went out on a limb and IM’ed him. We chatted for a while and he emailed me pictures. To my surprise he is super CUTE!!!!!
Here are is stats:
- Name: Jon
- Occupation: Corporate Asset Manager
- Appearance: 5’10” and cute!
- Education: BA from Penn State, MBA from Pitt
We had our first phone date tonight (Sunday) and I can’t wait to talk to him again. We have plans to go out on Wednesday, location TBD. I’m really excited about this one, much more so than any of my IJL dates so far. He is so nice, really cute, well educated, with a great job, outgoing, social, and most importantly…..he thinks I’m pretty and isn’t affraid to tell me so!
After 3 years of failed dates and potential relationships, I’m always afraid that guys won’t like me. I hope he thinks that our phone date went as well as I did, and that he still wants to meet me on Wednesday. When do you think is too soon to call him again?
