the shy and silent types

So the date...

happened on Sat night. The usual - dinner and then a drink. My friends always know when it is a kiss of death because I start the recap with "He's nice." I did have a good time with him but there was no real spark between us. I figured it might take a bit and he is a great guy so I did want to go out with him, was nervous but was looking forward to it. I expected more. You know, progress. On paper he's great. Seems driven, has an interesting job that he really loves, seems really interested in me, etc. etc. but he is super shy. It's cute but when you're fairly shy yourself (as I am) you want someone to draw you out. Someone who can take cues and ahem hints. Nona that happened. We had a nice dinner, a nice walk, a nice convo but that was it. It was "nice". Like "oh-what-a-good-friend" nice, not "can't-wait-to-see-him-again" nice. The thing is because we are so similar, I think things are going to stay that way. Bummer.

And then there's the guy I met a couple of weekends ago. I've had a couple of conversations with him - both via phone and text message. During the last one he said he was out of town this weekend but we should "hang out sometime." I said, "Yes, we should." The verdict is still out on this one but so far, silence...

Dating is fun folks... Sure beats my relationship with my DVR though.

Sounds interesting. Too bad it didn't really work out. At least you figured it out now and not three dates later. Good luck with the other one!
