Date Report

I'm not sure what's up with me, but it's like I just don't care anymore.  I'm just not feeling it.  And it's been so long since I remember feeling 'it', that I don't know if I'd recognise it anyway.

The date was ok.  It was nice. 

He greeted me with a kiss on the cheek, ordered our coffees and we chatted.  Yeah, I was pretty self-conscious but did a good job at hiding it.  He was kinda attractive I guess.  I didn't really have any thoughts on that either way.  We got on well....but not how I imagine it should be.  No 'spark'. 

He may have felt the same way....not sure.  Anyway, coffee and a bit of a walk on the beach and we were through.  It had to be quick as I needed to be home to take Ethan for a karate grading.

He walked me to my car and we said goodbye.  He kissed me on the cheek - and that was it.


If I hear from him, great.  If not, great.

What's it supposed to feel like on a first date with a total stranger?  

I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to feel NOTHING AT ALL.

EDIT - actually I don't know if I want him to call me at all.  All I want to do is train this spring/summer.  Quite desperately actually.  Man Proof Cave/work/train/eat/sleep.  That would make me happier than anything - getting in a solid few month's training without injury.  THAT is something I have feelings about.

Your plan for the Summer sounds good Frankie, you might find someone by accident that way, rather than focusing on looking for someone...does that make sense...? Sorry, just had a pretty strong coffee and am feeling a bit spaced out...LOL

I think its ok to feel nothing. if it ain there, it aint there.

I once dated a guy who looked exactly like smith jared from SATC - yet, I felt nothing. It was a shame but if there's no sparkies at the beginning I doubt you'll be feeling any fire later.
Summer of training fun sounds more like the go!

I dunno about the peck on the cheek -- I would have had your cheeks on my pecker by then!

Friday said...

I hear ya... I think yr summer and mine are going to involve the same things. : )


Shar said...

Get to your plan for summer adn if something worth leaving your Man proof cave for comes along, all good, if not you'll be feeling damn fine anyway.

LizN said...

Two two word haikus for you.

"Don't settle" (for anyone)

"Start training" (bad ass!)

To Band or not To Band? said...

And maybe that;s why you didn't feel anything. You had already put your mind into "Nope" mode. I think when you are ready, you will feel more than nothing.

Frankie said...

Sandra I've focussed, not focussed...doesn't seem to make a diff. I think it's just me me me. But that's cool. Not ready. Will I ever be?

Casey - Smith..droooool. Yeah I've dated a couple of hotties and just thought NO WAY can't even have a conversation with them..what's the point?

Bam - you're just plain dirty. Fuck that was funny last night though. Still chuckling...

Thanks Ms's fine. I'm fine. Ya'll happen I guess.

Booyah! Ms Friday..we gonna be fit AS xxx

My cave IS pretty cool Shar but would definitely poke my head out if someone was worth it. Excited about my training now though :o)

Liz, I love it! Starting tonight.... Love training at night. Bought a new lamp for the garage on the way home. Yippee!

You know what Ms Band? I think you've hit the nail on the head. I just wanted to go and get it over with..just in case he was like...THE ONE...but never really wanted him to be. I'm so relieved now. x
