The Mythical Second Date…

I was beginning to think they didn’t really exist, that they were just something fanciful that mothers told their daughters about to lull them to sleep. Like mermaids and unicorns and honest politicians...

But tonight I will have solid proof that they DO exist.

A real-life, honest-to-goodness Second Date.

I’m going out again with B.

Holy carp!

A certain someone has referred to him as “the Frat boy” and that description might be apt (he likes sports, beer, sports, video games, sports, beer…. you get the picture) but I’m trying not to be judgmental. Our first date was good and we’ve talked on the phone a few times since then.

I worried a little that he was maybe TOO irreverent and Dude-ish, but he opened up a bit last night on the phone and I think I’m dealing with a decent human being here. A bit blunt perhaps, but no artifice or pretention, which you know I like.

Most of all, he makes me laugh. Seriously…. There’s a perpetual smile on my face whenever I talk to him.

And it doesn’t hurt that he’s cute.


But, again, we’ve only been on one date. We’ll see how things go tonight.

Angel, do you want a blood sample? I think my PEA levels are spiking…

My apologizes if you took Frat boy to be a slur. It isn't.

I use generalizations only because it covers a wide gamut of good things and bad things in a generic way. When you know the bad possibilities that are most likely, you can watch for them!

I have a few frat boy friends who are kick ass guys.

Congrats on a second date!

Haha! Thanks, Sane!

Seriously, I didn't take it to be a slur. In fact it really expresses how I wanted to describe him.

I nearly married a frat boy once. He's (mostly) a good egg.

Carefull E, I think you're dating me! Beer, sports, beer was a dead give-away. Bet he's hung too! Grrr, I hope "I" don't hurt you. Well, I don't mean like THAT! I mean emotionally. Oh, I don't know WHAT I mean! Know what I mean?

Congrats! And I'm now single again (I had a major issue with something seriously a problem with him, and he came back with a bunch of lies about me--I even forwarded his email to a friend, and she was appalled at how much he was full of crap). I joined this weekend, so I'm on two free sites and match (I think match is the best site), so we'll see. Rather than die alone ;) I'm gonna gay marry SOMEBODY, damnit!
