Well, let's see - the NYEve date is a very nice man, but I didn't feel the chemistry.
Next day I spent time with the other fella - and while some of it was very nice, I got really sick of hearing his "Eeyore" attitude - he is already being all negative about the chances of us having a relationship of any kind because, as he says, he doesn't think he'd be able to be what I needed or wanted. I thought that was damn presumptious for a second date. We had talked every day for a couple weeks, but still! So anyway, I started the whole "reassuring" thing, and the date ended okay - I suppose. But then, while I was at a gathering with my friends yesterday evening, he called me, and started that Eeyore "this won't work" shit.
I said, "Look, EVERY RELATIONSHIP FAILS, unless they make it til one member of the couple dies. If you live your life in fear that you're going to get your heart broken, even this early in a dating relationship, you are going to die old and alone, so stop putting up barriers and give me a call when you're willing to risk a little bit to get to know someone. Otherwise, just don't." I haven't heard from him since.
Met up with a friend for a movie today - I'm attracted to him as well, but I'm not going there - he hasn't been split from his wife long enough, so we'll keep it as friends! So there you have it. Two busts and an "on hold," but ah well. LOL
