Figure Skating

I am officially back on match. I'm trying to keep a positive outlook on it, but it is what it is...

So anyway, here is an old match story to keep you entertained.

I met a dude who's name I don't even remember. We'll call him...Bob. (Because if I tell you the nickname I had for him, it ruins some of the punchline.) So, we did the traditional email exchange, decide to meet up thing. We were supposed to grab a drink on a Saturday night, but right as I had started getting ready, he called me to back out. Because he was horribly hungover. He was like, "I'm really sorry, but I really don't want you to see me like this and have it be your first impression... not that this is a great one." Now, we've all had our nights out that get out of hand and then woken up hating ourselves, so while I'm irritated, I still kind of get it, so I let it slide and we reschedule for the next week. I go, and we have a drink or two and the conversation is decent, and we plan on getting together again.

That night, he calls me AGAIN to bail. Because it was snowing. Lame. So I write him off because at that point, it's very "Fool me once..." You know.

Then, like 2 weeks later, I get an email from this dude that says, "Hey, want to come over tonight to watch figure skating with me?" And ok, it is the Olympics and all, but seriously? Being the mature type that I am, I immediately forward the email to my sister and we spend the rest of the day making, "Know how I know you're gay?" jokes. At as we're spinning tales of me showing up to find him in a sequined figure skating outfit, I decide I need to go to figure out what's up with this dude.

(Yeah, like this.)

I go, and he is just waking up from a nap, and he's wearing wind pants and an old t-shirt and hat. So we watched figure skating, drank some wine, and then I left. It was laaaaaaame.

I never heard from him again, and that was cool.

I told this story recently to a dude, and he was like, "How did you not see the ploy to hook up in that?" Apparently I'm that dumb.

And that is one of my stories. There are a few more, but that's one of my favorites.

Song of the day: Here It Goes Again by OK Go. Because here it goes again. Hope for more good dudes, a little less crazy.
