He’s Not the One

Post placeholder image

I had a brilliant weekend. This included an amazing chat on Friday via IM with a friend from the past. This was followed up by a dinner party on Saturday night and a champagne brunch on Sunday.
Now, here it is Monday, I’m in a pissy mood. Things started to go downhill when I talked to IT Guy last night. Then the voice mail from the distance relative this morning sent me over the edge. So I’m a bit tense at the moment.
At least tonight I get to distract myself with a Junior League meeting; same for tomorrow night. Then on Wednesday I’m suppose to go on date number two with IT Guy. But I’m thinking about cancelling because the more I talk to him, the less attractive he becomes. Plus I’m just not getting that intoxicating head-spinning feeling typically experienced at the beginning of a romance. Part of it is that he reminds me of Racquetball Guy and if I’m honest with myself I’d admit that I had my doubts almost from the beginning with that relationship. So I’m thinking about backing away before I fall into another relationship just because I no longer wish to be single. Life is just too short to settle or get distracted by another bad choice. Particularly since I’m becoming more in tune with what I want in a boyfriend/lover/husband and I already know IT Guy no longer fits the profile.

    Since our first date, he gave off massive buying signals (called, sent text messages and made references to future dates), so I was tempted to go along with the flow to have someone to hang out with during the holiday. But I knew deep down I’d need alcohol to make me overlook his ever growing list of imperfections (none really rated to looks more personality) — but decides against that as I’m really not into the boozer culture. Plus, no sense getting tangled up with someone that I’m not really going gaga over.

    how is it that you manage to be reliable and yet a breath of fresh air at the same time? i always consider you one of the smarter people i know. not that you are infallible. everyone makes mistakes, however you are one of the few that can learn from them and move on. i’m glad you are holding out for what you want and deserve. being honest with yourself is best for the both of you. hope your monday got better.
