It was two weeks ago today that I had my kitty angel put down. It was also the day that Stalker sent one of his random texts. I'm not sure that I've shared this here, but I hear from him occasionally. He would say hello sometimes, and others he would ask if/when we would ever see one another again. Due to different circumstances, I either didn't respond to him or life got in the way of us meeting up. This is a little of our text convo:
Stalker: When you taking me out on a date?
Me: Shouldn't that be the opposite way? I just left vet office. Had (Kitty Angel) put down today. :'(
Stalker: :'( oh no. I'm sorry. :-(
Me: Yeah...so it's a cryfest right now.
Stalker: I'm a little teary-eyed myself. If I can help in any way, let me know.
Me: Thanks. I'm out with my gay right now. He made all the arrangements bc I couldn't do it.
Stalker: Ok. Keep me updated.
The next day, I sent Stalker a text telling him that he could take me on a date Monday night. And take me on a date he did. We began with miniature golf, then went to one of those fairs that pop up in mall parking lots to eat funnel cake, and ended the night watching Thor in 3D. Because the movie had been out for a while, we had the theater to ourselves. Stalker even dared to cuddle with me during the movie. By the way, this was the first time that Stalker and I had gone to the theater to sit and watch a movie together! Crazy, huh?
Now rewind to about a month or so ago. I was just about to take my profile off POF when I received an email on there from what looked to be a handsome man, who also happened to be a teacher! Jackpot! Part of my dating dilemma is due to my lack of time during the school year and all the hours I put into lesson plans, grading papers, and editing the yearbook. This man would not only understand my schedule, his would be even worse because he is a coach! Double jackpot!! Coach and I spoke on the phone or texted everyday for a couple weeks, before we met at a Starbucks one afternoon. He was impressive, and we clicked. The downside? It was about 3 more weeks before we could find a mutual time to see one another again.
So...all that flashback brings me to my dating life this week.
Monday night: bowling with Stalker
Tuesday afternoon: lunch at Chipotle and dessert at Pinkberry with Stalker
Tuesday night: Fat Matt's BBQ and dessert at Cafe Intermezzo with Coach
Wednesday night: Dave and Buster's with Stalker (he even won me a monkey), followed by hot sex with Stalker...damn I missed his body on mine!
Thursday night: After Stalker's basketball game, he dropped off the new Jill Scott CD...and more hot sex!
It's now Friday afternoon, and one of my besties from high school will be in town tonight to go see the band of another high school friend play at a venue in the city. I'm sure she will spend the weekend with me, so this weekend will be dateless. I think I made up for it during the week, huh?
