Then… he replied “cunt” and blocked me…

Wow this guy won’t give up, the last message is cute. Should I reply even though I am not attracted to him??
3 minutes after he dig through his compartment box, he found his wallet, I could see it from the inside of cafe. I don’t mind buying him a coffee, but I don’t want him to feel awkward because I buy him a coffee.
He walked in, ordered and we finally sat down outside. We talked and talked, I talked about my job, he talked about his business. He is the owner of Vodka company, his business just starting to soar. I told him about my job as an Internet Engineer, everything with Internet stuff. Network, websites, help desk, and all that geeky stuff. Then he asked what do I like to do, I froze.
It’s been 5 years I don’t have things “to do” besides work and take care of my household, kid, and umm my ex. We used to go to the park, arcades, zoo and that’s about it. Awkward…. I finally said “Just walk, I like to take pictures since I’m a photographer too” a w k w a r d…
I asked him casual questions such as if he had travel outside US, or what is your plan for your business and such. He talked so calm, so mature, so charming… Then he mentioned he likes to go on snowboarding / skiing, he even said, “we should go there, it would be fun!”
Yes it is almost summer and he is talking about winter already, my heart beats faster. “We…? Oh wow, we? Are we really gonna go that far? It’s not officially summer yet”, I said to my self. “Yes, I want to try. It’s going to be my first time skiing / snowboarding”, I said.
We had a good time, it was only an hour because he has to drop his son somewhere then go to warehouse to take care of his business. We had to say goodbye, even I wish I could spend more time with him. I hugged him, I don’t remember when the last time I feel warm like this, he is tall and he has a great posture, I could tell he works out but not crazy work out. He hugged me and said “it is really nice to see you”.
I walked to my car, he drove off…. I still sitting in my car, thinking about him. 5 minutes passed and I didn’t realize I was in the car for that long and did nothing, just stared at the clear beautiful sky. Beep beep…. I got a text from him!
“It’s nice to see you. You are very attractive” I was staring at my phone, my face is probably red I could feel my face is blushing. I texted him back, “It’s nice to see you too. I’m looking forward to see you again”.
“Sure, I would like that.”, he replied.
“I will see my schedule and will text you tonight”, I blushed again.
Maybe this is how Katie Holmes felt when she met Tom Cruise for the first time? I have crush on him, big time! I rarely have crush on the first sight, very rare!
Finally I got home and texted one of my friend Nicole and told her I met this charming guy. She asked me if I know his last name and asked me to look it up. So I did…
He is a businessman, a vodka owner. Guess what they do? Yep travel everywhere to promote his products, clubs, bars and pool parties. I saw his vodka girls, sales girls… They ALL sexy as you could imagine! 2-piece bikinis, tanned, blonde, skinny girls. Whaaattt? I feel SO under estimated. All of sudden I feel insecure. There is no way I look attractive compare to them! My self esteem just dropped from cloud nine.
That very night I texted him and asked him out sometime next week, I have to look for a baby sitter. I even asked my kid’s teacher if she knows someone who could watch Grace. But he didn’t reply my text. Hmm, maybe he is busy.
One day… Two days…. Three days… GREAT! What were you thinking Naomi?
Day 4, he finally answered my text! What??? He said, “I’m sorry I’ve been so busy. How are you?”
My heart raced, I texted him back right away, “I’m great, just busy at work. So what you been up to besides busy with your business?”.
He never answered me since then. That’s it.. Puff, he’s gone as if he never get my text. I don’t get it, he is so busy and can’t answer my text until now? Maybe he realizes that I am not as good looking as vodka girls. But what about his words? He said I’m attractive? He said he would love to go out again? He was talking about winter stuff together? Are those just bluffing words??? Or I am so far behind that I don’t know what dating people say nowadays?!
I can’t stop thinking about him. He is my crush and one thing I know, I feel happier, I don’t feel sad over my divorce anymore. It feels like my heart got distracted because of him so I don’t sit here and wait and hope that my ex would change his mind.
It was couple weeks before Father’s Day, I finally found this guy online, and we decided to meet up for coffee. His name is Chris, he is a business man, a legit business man! Even though before we met, he mentioned that he is very busy and travel a lot and thinks dating is exhausting. Okay, so what do you expect from this “site”? A friend? Cool, I am up with that too.
It was Sunday’s afternoon, I skipped my church just to see him ha! This is actually my first meet up after my divorce. I feel nervous, I should be there earlier I thought. It was such a gorgeous day… it was beautiful, sunny but not too hot, it was breezy afternoon. I am ready! So I got there 10 minutes before, I ran to the bathroom check my self in the mirror, took a deep breath and walked out and hoped he’ll be there.
"Hmm, he is late..", my mind starting to think if this is a joke? Ugh…. 5 minutes after the time we supposed to meet, I texted him just to make sure I’m at the right cafe.
"Hi, I’m here. It’s on Main st. and 16th st. right?" I texted him.
"O my, sorry I totally spaced it. I am horrible, give me 10 minutes I live near by", he replied.
"Wheew at least he wants to redeem himself and replied my text.", I thought.
He finally got here. I saw the big good looking Jeep car parked. He got out the car… He is tall and so charming. He walked in, his appearance is awfully handsome for a guy his age. He is 10 years older than me, but his face is mix between: Gerard Butler (less rough) and Matthew mcconaughey (somewhat).
My heart skipped a beat… He walked in, I shook his hand, I am too nervous, he smiled and said sorry he is late. Then he got in line to get a coffee, me meanwhile got a coffee already while I was waiting on him.
Then all of sudden, he reached his back pocket… He realized he didn’t bring his wallet. He ran outside and tried to look his wallet inside his car. One minute…. Two minute…. Oh great, now what?
This is Naomi. I am a single mom, a full time worker, and here I am trying to find someone out there that really accept me as who I am, with a kid, and baggage on my shoulders.
I picked “Sleepless in The City” because I love to watch Sex In The City and please don’t compare me Carrie Bradshaw, she is a brilliant writer, crazy stories, but here I am trying to express all my feelings through this journey. Sleepless in Seattle is also inspired me to pick this title, I wonder if someday I could find the one, be romantic, and so sweet. After all, I believe Happy Ever After does exist.
Guess you could tell i have not share my story lately, been pretty “busy” with dates lol. So by the way, I finally gave in to this online dating site. Fortunately Grace’s aunt was visiting and she was willing to watch Grace and I could use a break a litle bit. I met 4 guys in 1 week from POF. I should say it was pretty intense, I meant I took advantage for being free a bit while someone watching Grace.
First Guy I met is Franco, he is an elementary teacher. He is younger than me, he is cool kid. I said “kid” because he lives in his parents house. He is 25 years old and lives with his parents. Though he said he is saving up money to buy a house, I don’t feel attracted to him. We met at this café, this café is order and sit, so when I ordered first I was wondering if he will pay for me.
He did not….
I took out my wallet half way to the cashier then…. Still he didn’t offer me to pay, wait… I thought when the guy asks for a date, he should pay?
Good thing I’m not broke. I pulled my debit card so slow, so slow that the cashier kept looking at me! He was standing there behind me with his order. My thought maybe I should buy him the meal. Ugh hell to the no, I finally paid for my self.
We sat and talked, we were just talking about daily stuff. He told how he loves kids and he likes to be a teacher, he likes to hangout with his cousins and step siblings yada yada..
He asked me what am I looking for from this site. I said that I can’t fall in love that easy and looking for friends now (lame excuse I know).
He asked me what I want to do after this and I said I might grocery shops and do errands. He then said he would love to come along with me.
Excuse me..? We met half hour ago and you want to grocery shops with me?? Now are you gonna ask me to buy your groceries?
Can you tell what turns him on?
“Lick my eeearrrr…”
So I’ve been talking to this really cool-seeming guy online for the past 2 days and we have a ton in common. I really want to meet him in person, but I’m not going to be the one to say that and I’m worried he won’t initiate anything either… ugh.
2 days is too soon honey. Wait for a week or even more. Then you could bring up something like, “isn’t it funny we get along so well but haven’t meet each other?” kinda thing. He should get your clue ;-)
He is very honest.. LOL.
