Other Dating Updates – Entry 15

Dear Diary

Whilst we wait to see what unfolds with Mr Sparks I’ll give you an update on other potentials.

I went for brunch with a man that I met online. He is quite sweet. I appreciated that he could set up a date, time and place to meet. I must say that he did a really good job as well! I was impressed with the cafe and food.

He used to be a chef but now works in food quality control and is looking at buying his own house soon. He has a cute face and is a little on the chubby side. At the moment, he is going to the gym as much as possible to build muscle. He reminded me of someone I dated briefly who ate as much as they could to get bulky. To be honest, it’s not my favourite body shape, but he seemed pretty nice.

AT the end of the brunch he offered to pay. He even walked me to my car and said that he’d had a nice time and wanted to see me again. It was refreshing to hear a man express his interest in getting to know me. I said that I’d like that and we went our separate ways after a hug.

I’ve got a bit of an update with Surf guy. He’s been asking me if I’m going to dance events on the day of each event and most times I have other plans. Technically, he’s not asking me out, he’s just asking if I’m attending. Today though he was more assertive with his advance. He asked me if I would like to go out to dinner before the dance social on tonight. He asked if I liked burgers and chips? and then pointed out that he’d never asked my food preference before….he followed soon after with a message saying it was a group dinner! I politely declined:

Thanks, I didn’t realise that it was on tonight. I’ve got things on so likely won’t make it. Would have been nice, thanks for the invite

Apparently, this didn’t go down so well with Surf guy:

Ok all good. Maybe I should stop asking you? I am probably barking up the wrong tree? Try-repeat-fail

Him again: I meant, Try-fail-repeat

Me: It’s just been unlucky that I’ve had prior plans each time.

Him: All good. I still reserve the right to give up : )

Him again: As usual, I’ll partake in as many dances as you please (common etiquette)…I do my best not to let an attempted advance (and fail) not to hinder the broader aspects of dance/social scene. All good? I’m good if your good.

…..It’s ‘you’re’, not ‘your’. And seriously, he hasn’t tried that hard. He’s asked me twice in 3 or so months if I’m single and interested in coffee, each time I’ve said yes – I think that makes it obvious that I’m interested.

I swear I didn’t mean to hurt his feelings! Too hard basket if you ask me, I need a man who is more emotionally stable.
