I am particularly careful about my dating life and social life. I don't give out my number frivolously. But over the course of my two years here in Grad City, I've enjoyed getting to know new people. I'm a good judge of character and I've enjoyed getting to know the few guys I've had dates with, even though I didn't choose to stay with any of them for the long term.
But sometimes I miss.
A guy I was introduced to by a friend was charming, tall, funny, and seemed intelligent enough. Not an engineer, so I don't expect a rocket scientist...
But he texted me today saying, "Hi darling, this is _____, haw you'r doing ?"
Um, how I am doing is fine?
I called him back and left a message.
He called back at 11pm and wanted to come see me. At 11pm. We haven't even been on a date yet.
Oh yeah, this is not going to go well. In fact, it's not going to go anywhere.
Call me old-fashioned, but I like the guys in my life to be able spell and behave as gentleman.
After that, then I see if they can handle the fact that I like Star Trek, own my own cordless drill and have a Mensa card in my wallet... :) Most don't make it past that stage!
