"Sayid", for the win!!!!

So, my date with Chicago Sayid was amazing. A little awkward at all dates go, I guess. But we quickly loosened up and had a great time. We just got some dinner and bar hopped til 4am. Lots of kissing and hand holding ensued. Definitely felt that connection, chemistry and *spark* that had been missing with all my other dates. We talked all weekend while I was stuck at work and are going out again tonight, which I'm super looking forward to.
I'm actually going on one more match date tomorrow, though part of me doesn't want to go on but the other part does, out of curiosity. He's the cardiology resident and you know me, I l o v e it when guys are in the medical field. I did, however, just cancel my match subscription.
I'll fill you in on my last match date tomorrow, but from here on out, I'm keeping Chicago Sayid to myself!!

Lost.. and Found.

So let me clarify my last post! I was out for St Patty's Day celebrations at Duffy's, starting bright and early at 930am and the last thing I ever thought would happen is meeting a guy, being that it is one of the most intoxicated days of the year. But.. it happened! I spotted this guy's shirt and had to go read it.. something about Chuck Norris and, though I can't tell you what it said, I remember that it was hilarious. So, I spent a good chunk of time talking to this guy and loved him! He was cute, tall, buff, funny and basically mad cool. We exchanged numbers b/c he was leaving to go to another bar and we were hoping to meet up later. Sadly enough, that didn't happen, but we stayed in touch, texting all day. Before going to bed last night, he had texted me asking me if I would go on a date with him and I wrote back "definitely!" This morning when I woke up, I was planning on texting him to see how he was feeling, b/c he was out just as long as I was, if not longer! (I got home at maybe 10pm? Loooong day.) and saw that he had already texted me asking I was feeling! The boy was in my head! And we continued texting all day.. and are now facebook and are going out sometime this week! The reason I called him Chicago Sayid is b/c he looks just like Sayid (from Lost.. minus the flowing curly locks.. this guy shaves his head) but even better and had that same air of sexiness about him that I feel Sayid has. I usually only go for the white boys, but this guy... mmm... I'm hooked. And I CANNOT wait for our date.

I just met Chicago Sayid today, one of the craziest days of the year to be out, and he was awesome. Just asked me if I wanted to go on a date too...LOL. HELL YES!!

All the other boys can suck it!


Ok, so I gave Twink another shot last night...despite the gay-ish stuff he was doing last week, I really do get along with him, so I felt I owed him a second chance. He picked me up and we went to Lucky Strike for a night of dinner, pool and bowling. I was dreading it, but I ended up having a great time. Things he did that did not help the gay arguement, however: 1) Ordered a salad, with dressing ON THE SIDE. Not even I pull that crap. Ever. 2) Told me he lives with a roommate.. a female one. 3) Told me his female roommate and him host "Girls Night" (his own words!) once a month where their mutual girl friends come over and they watch Grey's Anatomy. 4) Hugged me goodnight, again.. not even a hint of a possible going-in-for-goodnight-kiss.
I was really pulling for him... but alas.. can't take the femme outta him, I guess. He's super sweet and nice, and he people-watched and judged/made fun of all the ghetto people that were out that night with me, though, I definitely loved that. I think we're just on the path to being besties.. b/c I definitely don't think I'm feeling that "spark" for him.
I'm emailing a bunch of dudes, though, so there should be more date stories in store. Stay tuned! and Happy St. Patrick's Day! It's 8:30am on Saturday and I'm getting ready to go out already! God, I love this holiday!

So I had another date last Friday. I was so excited about this one, b/c our email and phone conversations were really great and I felt like he got me and I got him. He was part-Italian, a dog owner, seemed like an all-around cool guy. But I was also nervous, b/c everything seemed too good to be true so far, so I was scared that once we met in person, it would be disastrous. Well, right off the bat, he seemed skinnier and shorter than I was expecting, but didn't let that bother me. So, we just went to a bar near my house and had drinks and, though the conversation started off slow, by the end of the date, we were having a great time. He definitely is entertaining and witty but he was also... very... um.... gay. Well, just his tone of voice and his hand gestures were. He reminded me totally of one of my gay guy friends who has the same tone of voice and same hand gestures. That's not good.. lol. He just asked me if I wanted to hang out again this week.. I feel like I should, to really know if I had handle the "gayness" or not.

In other news, I was watching Life in Ruins the other day and one of the characters said something to the main character about how she wasn't giving this one guy a chance that really resonated in me: "You're only seeing the obstacles, you're not seeing the magic." I'm hoping that I'm not tripping myself up b/c I'm only noticing one thing wrong with these guys (extreme religiousness of guy #1, shortness in guy #2, gayness in guy #3) instead of embracing any connection we have. Ugh. Why can't this be easier!!

Return to Match...

So, I did it again... went back on match. After a failed attempt at dating someone in the fall (which totally worked out for the best, anyways, he was a weird one!) and after having a good number of friends get engaged over the holidays, I decided I needed to take matters into my own hands again. After a flurry of emails, I had two dates set up for last weekend. Date #1 on Friday was with Jay, a sweet 33 year old who worked for a catering company. Our date was simple and casual, just grabbed some burgers and beers and hung out. He was shy and nervous and rambled a lot but for the most part, the date went well. Until he dropped a minor bomb on me.. that he went to the Moody Bible Institute for college. That didn't initially freak me out, as I knew someone else who went there and they were normal.. a huge alcoholic douche bag, but normal. lol. When Jay launched into a whole lecture about how the world was indeed created by God and that evolution was a joke, however, I began to slightly worry. Did I believe that when I was little and in catholic school? Totally...but I believd in a lot of things back then. I am still religious though I don't go to church that often, but I'm definitely not interested in dating a bible thumper. So... I don't know what I'm gonna do with that.

Date #2 was with D, who was actually 2 years younger than me. I decided to ignore that when I saw he was a White Sox And I'm glad I did, our date on Saturday night was so much fun! Totally blew away my Friday date.. I actually can't remember too much about Friday night's date now. So D and I met up for sushi at my favorite place, which happens to be down the street from my place. It was a little awkward getting the conversation rolling but once we did, we chatted away all night. After stuffing ourselves, we walked down the street to grab some drinks at another bar. The DJ started bumpin' some dance tunes after a while, making the both of us want to head down this lounge/club across the street. His buddy was working the door, so we go to walk right in. I happen to LOVE dance music and listen to it all the time, so I was glad that he liked it too. We saddled up to the bar and hung out. I amost got my A kicked by some ghetto drunk biotch next to me, who claimed I kept dancing into her space and obnoxiously started dancing and hitting with me her ass so I did it right back. LOL. Maybe not the wisest decision, as her ghetto friend was definitely 200lbs and was totally wanting to jump on me. Whoops. Definitely one of the longest first dates I've been on (7.5 hours!) but was fun. He's totally cool.. just one tiny thing that bugs me-dont' hate me- but he's not that tall. I actually was definitely taller than him in my heels. Is it so bad to want a big strong guy who's taller than me?? I like burying my face in someone's chest when we hug, not resting my chin on his head. *sigh*

So I don't know what I'm gonna do with that one either. lol. There is another guy I'm dying to meet.. we talked on the phone saturday night and the conversation was effortless and fun and he seems so freaking cool. Plus, he's tall, dark and handsome, part-Italian and a dog owner. I'm all over that! We have a date this Friday, so I hope there's chemistry there. Will keep you posted!
