Blue Ribbon Weekend

This weekend is going to be great. Why? Because I have second dates with my top two candidates (Friendster Guy and High School Guy) and a first date with the guy I got the best vibes from on Match.com, Math Teacher Guy. I should start my own show like Rachael Ray - Getting by on one date a day (and still doing your laundry, paying your bills, and getting enough sleep). Except I haven't figured out how do so all that stuff in parenthesis yet. Baby steps.

Buff Gym Guy has settled safely into flirty friend mode and that's good. When I brought him to share with a group of gal pals he was charming and flirty and gravitated to one of my gorgeous and sassy friends. I do not blame him (she really is gorgeous, and one of the nicest and most personable people you'll ever meet so you can't hate her for being gorgeous. Plus, I'm starting to think I'm pretty gorgeous as well.). My motives for bringing him were to introduce him to other great ladies. He's too much for one I think. And our underlying beliefs are way too different. A Catholic boy who goes to church regularly should not date an atheist. I've been there and tried that. It doesn't quite work. You're both looking down at the other a little. Buff Gym Guy also brought his brother to the gathering and he hit it off with one of my friends. All in all I think meeting Buff Gym Guy was really a very good thing. I made a friend, got my ego boosted, and may have helped a love connection.

In other news, (I always seem to have other news) I went salsa dancing last night. A guy friend of mine suggested I stop by so I did and I had a great time. I'd never salsaed (Spelling? It sounds right when you say it but I don't think that's an actual word). There were ten people, 5 men, 5 women, and every guy danced with every girl at least once. It was great fun and despite the fact that we were all single (I think), it wasn't flirty or "hey baby". Just grown-ups getting together to dance. I'm definitely going again. They have it once a week. Anybody care to join me? Cha cha cha!

I can totally relate to the Atheist (me) dating the Religious Guy (RG) scenario--just doesn't work.

By way of explanation, I stumbled upon your blog a few days ago (I know 3 years after you wrote this stuff) and read a few of the more recent entries and laughed my ass off prompting me to start at the beginning; hence my belated comments :).
