three strikes and...

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to my version of The Dating Game!

Last week I had 3, count 'em THREE, dates. Mind you, this is not at all typical for me. In fact, it is not typical for me to have three dates in one month, let alone one week. It was just how the dice rolled.

Bachelor #1 and I got dinner on Monday. I met him a couple of months ago. I liked him then and liked him more after the date was over but he is busy, has a lot going on, and though I do think he is interested I haven't heard from him. He actually doesn't live in Manhattan so I am not super optimistic that this one is going to work out but it was nice to feel that chemistry with someone. I would definitely like to see him again but who knows... It is always the ones you like who never call, right ladies?

Bachelor #2 didn't make me a fan of his from the start. After being a bit of a pain in terms of planning, we met up and ended up going for coffee. This turned out to be the shortest date I've ever been on. It lasted less than 45 mins. I referred to it as "mutual disinterest". We parted amicably I think and I was amused by the fact that he really did not seem that into me and our romance was so very shortlived. I happily relayed the story to my BFF on the way to the subway and spent happily jealous of Pam Beesly instead.

Bachelor #3 was quite nice and impressive in the beginning but the chemistry that I dsecribed with #1 really wasn't there. As I've said, that pretty much makes or breaks a date for me. I was disappointed but decided to put it aside and focus on getting to know a new person while enjoying a great new restaurant. At least that helped me through. I opted to go home rather than go for drinks after and though I feel badly about it because he does seem like a nice guy, I don't think I will be seeing him again. Back to the drawing board...

It seems I'm 0 for 3 this time around but none of my meetings went like this!:

Don't count out #1 yet! But, I know where you are coming from...and dating someone who doesn't live in the city would be such a pain. I am always very nervous to. But, if they work here it isn't that bad.

Hey, distance isn't that bad, it's workable. Don't count him out yet. Chemistry counts for a lot. And if he likes ya (which I'm sure he does, you're fabulous!) I'm sure he'll make the time.

I read a book that compared dating to job interviewing. It said to never be afraid to walk away after a brief meeting if you aren't feeling it. AND...it said that if you really, really want a job, but for some reason you don't think it will be offered to you...don't give up! Keep looking for other jobs that may interest you, but don't shut the door on your first choice. Makes sense to me :)

Kudos on getting out there! And agreed on distance.. doesn't always not work out!
