Stats and Bring a Torch!
My date on Sat night ended up being a waste of time.She was nice enough, but after an hour of small talk the conversation died and when she mentioned she was probably going to head up the road I was happy to reel off the standard "Well it was nice to have met you,I'd better go and get my bus" speech.After my experience with my neighbour and other dates over the last few months I was beginning to wonder if it was my own social skills that were lacking.On reflection though if I don't feel any spark with someone then I'm not going feign interest and pretend otherwise and I guess women on dates feel exactly the same.
The other girl I was texting reckoned the first pub I'd suggested for a meal wasn't up to much and then wanted to speak on the phone first before meeting.On Mon night she'd said was going out with her brother for a couple of hours and would text and then call me later.After she didn't call I pretty much decided to forget the whole dating thing and enjoy my upcoming two weeks off work.
She did text me the next morning to say she'd fallen asleep on the couch when she got in but that did make me a little wary.We eventually spoke on the phone at lunchtime and met up for dinner last night.My initial instinct had been to ignore her morning text and move on, but I'm glad I didn't as she was lovely and we hit it off quite well.She was far better looking than her profile pic,was easy to chat to and we come from similar backgrounds too.
We've been texting each other last night and today and as her wee girl is away staying with her Dad until Sunday I'm hoping we can arrange another date for the weekend.
I'll take things easy with this new girl and see how it goes.If it doesn't work out there are still thousands of awesome girls out there.Here a few choice quotes from "profiles" I was looking at the other night…
For environmentally friendly blokes there's the girl who is "100% recycled Awesome".Another girl who has obviously watched too much reality tv declared "I'm a fan of awesomeness".Hey,aren't we all?!
It's amazing anyone on the site is single as everyone is easy going,honest and loves to laugh.Either that or they're just "totally crazy" or as one girl wrote "zippy and zonkers".The girl who wrote the quote below looked like Noddy Holder.I did like her profile statement although I'm not sure where the "darkside" comes into things...."I'm not over the hill or under it,I'm dancing and laughing around it.Come to the darkside.Bring a torch."
I've added my monthly poker stats for June and have decided to keep the $524 I cashed out on pokers Black Friday in my bank account.
Pokerstars $1989 ( + $395 for June)
Party $803 ( -$74 for June)
Total profit of $321 for June
