Well, since he mentioned it...

I figured it was okay to share the email I just received from the guy in the photo booth on the last post: "Hi, it's me. This is really really hard for me, and I know it makes me a big jerk. I think you're really cool, and I had a great time with you on Sunday, but there's someone else who I'm pursuing a relationship with :( I don't want to lead you on and be a bigger jerk-face than I already am. Anyway, I wish you the best, and I know you'll find someone great to settle down with...just stay away from those guys who pee on your car. I hope you have a good weekend :( and if you feel like you need to bash me on your blog, I'll understand :(" I guess I should stop telling people I'm into blogging when they ask what my hobbies are. I just can't find it in me to mad at him anyway, but now I'm wondering if he ended up with the waitress that served us earlier on our date. He seemed to hit it off more with her than me. They're both displaced from Michigan. He came down here for a job, and she came down here for a couple different guys... Well, I hope he didn't end up with her! I'm not sure how that would affect my ego. I'd better not ask. All is not lost though. When one door closes another opens, right? The second email in my inbox was from another dating site dude asking if I'd like to meet him on Friday at a little hot spot in Nashville. Sure, why not!? I had a golf date for Saturday too, but that guy seems to have disappeared randomly, so I don't know about that one anymore. I told some coworkers about my four dates last weekend, and they all laughed. Am I really ridiculous for doing this online dating stuff, or am I dating too much? Please, someone feel free to dish out a reality check at any time. If it were up to my mother I'd have a new date every night, but then again she'd be picking out the guys too!

I'll just give you the proverbial mother's "be careful" since these guys are not ones that friends/family are setting you up with. I don't think you're dating too much though - how could you be? If you haven't found one you really really like, then keep on going. If you do start to get serious about one of them, that's when you should probably consider cutting the field to a player of one. Good luck with it, and keep us posted!!

I think it's fine to be dating and finding one that you do hit it off with. I'm a great believer in destiny and waiting til the perfect one is found.

If you are having fun, keep it up. When it stops being fun, then stop.

Bash away that they guy wasn't up front and honest about pursuing another girl!!! Not a guy you want to pursue if he can't dish out the truth on a date. Would have been different had he said "I'm dating another girl that seems to be going in the direction of something a little more serious" prior to your first date.

Anyway, you go girl!!! Keep up the dating stories. Fun to read for us old married folk ;-)

It doesn't hurt to see what/who's out there, as long as it's safe. I totally understand your "quest" and if you are comfortable doing this why not? Good luck!♥ :-)
