Whatever! I have three dates now in 4 days....
I'm more scatterbrained this time so I have no idea what I'm going to wear for tonight or tomorrow's date (I haven't even thought about Tuesday's). I'm more focused on trying not to kill the guys in my office (almost each one is trying to screw with me today).
So it's off to a brew pub tonight with E (right - that's the letter I'm up to).
I'll keep you all posted. I'm going to try and get a few more going for later in the week. Let's see how many I can juggle!!

But I wanted to let you know that A is out. I last talked to him via text last Tuesday. He was in class all night so I told him to call me when he had a chance. No phone call has materialized in over a week. So his phone number is being deleted (just watch he'll call me - he did it 2 weeks ago.)
And I guess I'm off the hook for properly breaking it off. He went the route of no communication - that's cool. But I don't need to rehash now.
Onward and upward!

I was friends in elementary school with one of the bridesmaids in this picture. Yes, it's true!
We went to elementary through to high school together (but we stopped being friends in elementary school.) Never stops you from being Facebook friends.
Since all of the weddings that I have been in have not involved hair pieces or white tank tops and blue jeans, I feel like this is confirmation of my personal success in life.
On the other hand, it also confirms that I may have alittle redneck in me. I'm ok with that...it can be hidden.
Yeah to getting it together!!

I guess a slow time after 6 weeks isn't bad...
Here are the stats so far:
1 book read
1 crazy letter sent (and shared on a blog)
3 dating websites that I'm actively on
4 guys dated (A - D)
6 times I've given out my phone number
41 blog entries
countless emails exchanged
It's been kind of crazy, but having this blog has pushed me and helped me tremendously. It's helped me stay accountable and focused and motivated. I really appreciate all the feedback I've received.
Feel free to send the blog to anyone. It's open to the public. It's nice to know that there are other women (and men) in my situation and maybe they'll know they aren't the only ones.
Anyway, Happy 1 month Anniversary!
I'm going to celebrate three ways - 1) by eating a 4th Dove Bliss Dark Chocolate piece right now, 2) singing Miranda Lambert's songs in my office (I'm surrounded by guys - they already don't get me), and 3) going out by myself to a bar tonight (well a friend will be there but I have to enter the bar alone). Ok - will tell you about it later! Have to go back to work (lunch is over).

- healthy lifestyle (or willingness to have one) - he doesn't have to exercise as much as I do but he has to let me do it.
- strong worth ethic
- desire to have a family/children (sooner rather than later)
- responsibility with money
- common sense
- sense of humor
- masculine (I'm looking for a guy's guy - no metrosexuals)
- No physical chemistry
- No pre-marital sex (we've talked about this already here).
- Irresponsibility with money (If I can keep mine and other people's money, he can at least take care of his).
- No self-confidence (I don't do well with guys who can't make their own decisions.)

Only some Cole Haan sandals that I really wanted last summer and suckered myself into buying at $100 and some off made me feel slightly better (and ice cream).
But it has also changed the subject of today's post. I was really struggling with my original idea so I need more time. But I need to update you on my latest date with A. It was very interesting.
So as I blogged about we were going to dinner with his sister and her husband. Now he had described her to me before as kind of ditzy and a former friend of Mary Jane. And he's not super tall and ok build - so I'm expecting some earthy-ish, alittle chubby ditzy bag. What do I see instead when I meet her - a 6 foot something, size 00, dressed casually chic (in pricy jeans - $225 she tells me later) glamazon!!! She could have easily been walking the streets of downtown Manhattan.
Oh - I was so off my game. So confused. She was really nice, but wow not at all what I expected. They don't even resemble each other. We had a beer at her house and it was potent. Why do they make these crafty beers with varying degrees of alcohol? I was lit when we left the house. Luckily I sat in the back, but the roads we took were hilly and windy. Don't worry I made it. The meal was good. A and I didn't really talk that much to each other during dinner. Towards the end, I got up and went to the ladies room (since I had had a beer, tons of water and a couple of glasses of wine). I was feeling much more sober, thanks to the water and food. At first I was like, do I leave and let them talk about me? But my head said that my bladder wasn't going to make it all the way back to her house. So I left the table. Let them talk about me. It was going to happen anyway.

It says "Thanks for responding. You are very rude".
It kind of makes me laugh (ok - in an embarrassed way).
Let me back up for a second. He emailed me over the weekend about going out on Monday. I emailed him back and then didn't hear from him for days. Finally I get a text saying "Sorry. You're email got stuck in my spam". Then at some point, I got a phone call from him but I can't remember if there was a voicemail. I didn't return it, but that was only Tuesday or Wednesday.
And now this. Oh well. I never said I was perfect?
Time for Friday at the mall with margaritas, shopping, and work horror stories with Amy.
But I made a promise to myself that I wasn't going to do it. So thanks to alittle courage from Miranda Lambert (love that girl! - much better than skinny Barbie, Carrie Underwood.)
Anywho, I sent two quick emails based on advice from Jonathan...Here's what I wrote to D.
----- (D's real name),
So maybe it was only a half truth/half lie. I basically sent the same thing to C - but nothing about the MCRRC (a running club) and I was more forceful on we won't be having another date.
I'm wavering on B right now. I kind of just want another date to have another date. It doesn't necessarily have to be with B (women - such shallow and evil creatures). Do I wait it out for next week with someone new or just plan something else with him??? Miranda want do you think? (She's singing about getting out of town away from a man).
But don't worry contents are all there. And you all still know where to find me.
I'm doing it because I'm thinking about submitting it to some blogging groups, Facebook, and stuff so I can get more readers. Your comments have all been so positive so why not?!
So I need to disguise myself alittle more. I'm starting to get paranoid.
