Hitting the Pause Button

My lack of updates over the past few days might seem to suggest that I’ve been slacking off, but I’ve actually been really busy. No, not busy going on dates—I’ve been busy talking and thinking and trying not to puke. … Continue reading

The Longest Dinner Date of my Life

It took just three minutes for me to realize the next three hours were going to be extremely painful.

Only 180 seconds after saying hello, he started telling me how his classic “theventy-theven” car broke down on his way to the date.

Theventy-theven? Oh! Seventy-Seven! Oh, crap.

That’s right, ladies and gents: My date had a lisp. A bad one. And it was not long after that that I realized I was on a date with a grown-up version of Paul Smart, the geekiest kid in my fifth grade class. Touche, karma; ya got me. Continue reading

Three’s a Crowd

I knew it was going to be an interesting night, but I didn’t think it was going to be that interesting. My date was twice-divorced, a father of four, 44-years-old, and the guy who flaked on our dinner plans on … Continue reading

Date #5: Flake-out

I had my fifth date lined up several days in advance, but the day before, he shot me a text warning he might have to go out of town for business at the last minute. I wasn’t sure if it … Continue reading

Day 2: 1 Nice Guy

Day 2 started late—I slept in!—and the day’s date was a short one.

Again, it was with a guy who I met online, and through the same site I used to connect with my first two dates. (I’m currently on three sites, but this one has proved to be instant gratification—I signed up for it on Friday, and had multiple date requests that night!!).

Day two’s date was the second time that I knew who my online match was. (The other one was a local DJ who I know, but we’ve only exchanged messages at this point; we haven’t gone on an actual date.) Well, in this case, I didn’t know him, but I knew who he was, which made it a little weird, I guess, but not really.

(Sorry, guys, but I’m not going to tell you who he is. I don’t want to reveal the identities of any of my dates—regardless of their celebrity, or lackthereof. I don’t need any negative karma, or people made at me for naming names or, god forbid, kissing and telling! But feel free to connect the dots and wager a guess or two!) Continue reading

Day 1: 2 Guys, 3 Dates

Day 1 of my 30 dates in 30 days adventure got off to a strong enough start, with two men and three dates. Sounds confusing, I know—but let me explain.

It all started with brunch with a guy I met online who was in town for the weekend. He arrived the day before, and actually wanted to get together that night, but I decided against it, and suggested we do brunch instead. As I mentioned in my post from that morning, he was staying at the Venetian so I was hoping to go to Bouchon (or even Canyon Ranch Grill, which is also super-yummy) but no, he wanted to go to Grand Lux Cafe. Continue reading

Starting Slow

OK, here goes nothing. Really. It’s day one of my 30 Dates in 30 Days challenge, and I have a brunch lined up.

My date is staying at the Venetian/Palazzo, so I was hoping for brunch at Bouchon, since I loooove that place, or perhaps Canyon Ranch Grill, but no. He suggested Grand Lux Café. Fiiiiine.

This, of course, got me thinking. What can you tell by a man based upon what he has for breakfast? And what does my breakfast say about me? Naturally, I turned to my mystic, Google, for answers. Continue reading
