Jdate Bachelor Updates
Some people have been asking what happened with Bachelors #1 and #2 since our dates earlier this week so heres a quick update.
Bachelor #2- After the whole jetting out of my house after he wasn't able to pee situation, I was super disappointed (cause the date was great) and pretty weirded out. As I was nursing my hangover yesterday morning he called and apologized, said that sometimes when he drinks more than he should, that happens to him, he can't pee. Interesting- when I get drunk all that happens to me is sending out inappropriate text messages. Then he said he had a "real good time" and that he wants to see me again this weekend. The truth is I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and I actually do want to see him again but hello red flag, right?....I think I'll make a second date with him, and just make sure to keep it PG until I gather more information. Like medical information.
Bachelor #1- We went to drinks on Sunday night and although he was a smart, nice and cute guy there wasn't much chemistry and I had no idea if he thought the datewent well at all. Tuesday morning at 7:30am, thats right AM, his text message made it clear "I had a great time with you on Sunday night we should hang out again soon, hope you had a good Monday". Ok. If he calls I'll give it a second chance, its not always fireworks and magic the first time you meet someone. So last night when he called me I picked up for what was the most awkward converation ever. Nothing to say. I told him I just saw the craziest episode of Lost and it blew my mind and he said he doesn't really watch TV. He said something about sports. Then I said something about work. Then he did. It was boring and uncomfortable and he said he's going away this weekend but I should make it out to 'his neck of the woods" next week and that he would call me when he gets back to town. I'm kind of hoping he doesn't.
As for Bachelor #3 he's a younger guy, but from our conversations I'm probably most excited to meet him this weekend. I know I said my next date would be coffee, but now that I'm feeling better, I think I can handle cocktails again- except this time I'm giving myself a two drink max. Stay tuned....
