No Follow Through

I have given up on this one lobbie--he has been emailing me on for about a month. He says he wants to meet me, and has made some weak attempts to meet me, but no follow through.

For example, he said last Wed. how about we meet for coffee this Sunday? I wrote back and said, "Coffee on Sunday is fine, but not too early because that is my only day to sleep in."

Nothing back from him. Nothing! If he wanted to meet me, he should have gotten back to me with some plans--where and when?

Why do guys not know this? Women want men who step up to the plate.

I think this is it for him. I don't want to play this dumb game. I want to meet someone who can make plans.

First DZ Completed

Well, I went on my first DZ, or date zero, since I rejoined The report is a mixed bag. He was funny, witty, smart, well off apparently, was easy to talk with, and seemed interested in me and what I have been doing.

So what is the prob, you ask?

Well, he is much shorter than I thought. He said in his profile he was an inch taller than me, which is fine, but he seemed several inches shorter than me. And my heels were only an inch high. I am not that into height, but this is too short for my comfort zone.

A wierd twist is that he was married to someone I went to high school with and didn't particularly like. She was a member of the cheerleading, popular druggie crowd. KnowhudImean? And I liked some of her friends even less than I liked her. I did not let on to him that I knew her, and was sketchy about what year I graduated from high school. So not sure if he has been able to figure it out himself.

So, I don't think it is going to happen. But isn't that just the darndest???? One of the wierdest things has been to try to see them together in my mind's eye. I can't see them together for the life of me. I guess that is why they are no longer together. But why were they together in the first place?

First Meeting Tomorrow

Tomorrow evening I have my first DZ, or date zero, with a new person off, who also happens to be my first person to meet since joing up again.

We are going for wine at one of my favorite restaurants, so that will be nice. From what I can tell, he must live in my same area, or at least spend a lot of time there, since he knows so much about the restaurants here. And that is a good thing. My neighborhood is urban and great and vibrant. Anyone who likes my neighborhood is a good first start.

He is very witty in his emails. I hope he is the same in person. When I did online dating before, I had been corresponding with one man who was brilliant in emails and boring beyond belief in real life. So hope that doesn't happen again.

I also hope he is not a nerd. He looks nice in his photo, but not really my type, but possibly. He could be a riot--but he could also be a nerd. I will not date nerds, so hope he is not one of those.

One other thing that could be problematic--he says in his profile he is conservative, and I say that I am middle of the road. Truth of the matter is that I am really liberal. I just didn't want to scare people off. I will not be dogmatic with him about this though. Maybe he is not too wedded in his beliefs. The problem is, I am wedded in mine. But I want to get to know him first. I don't want political beliefs to be a wedge between us from the get-go.

I will report back after tomorrow!
