Oh This Isn't Going to Go Well

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!


  1. Girl after my own heart! With ya on that one! It's one of my pet peeves! No shorthand, and please please know how to spell, one or two misspellings I can take, anymore, no thanks!

  2. Proper grammar steals my heart every time.

    You know, I'm finding that for engineers/scientists, liking Star Trek is usually a huge plus.

  3. ...

    OK, I gotta quit looking through your old posts...

    "... but I like the guys in my life to be able spell and behave as gentleman."

    ...smalllol... Yeah, good grammar is important too.

    Just teasing ya.
