Second Date Kiss

Dating Rules

 Second Date Kiss

The problem with dating and relationships today is that they are becoming extinct. When I was a teenager dating, we went to the movies, or bowling, grabbed a bite to eat and got to spend time together and get to know each other. That came before all the other relationship stuff. Now, I am single again and back in the dating world and I have to ask, what the heck happened in the years I wasn’t dating? What happened to dating? Where did the days go when the second date kiss wasn’t expected. These days, it seems as if everyone just skips over the dating and relationship parts. The process is meet, sleep together, maybe have a baby, then on to the next one. Everywhere I look, that’s what I see. [Read more…]

Tips for Online Dating

Tips for online Dating

In today’s fast paced world, a lot of us don’t have time to go the traditional routes of dating. That is why online dating is such a fast growing trend! Make a profile, strike a cute pose, and wait for the “flirts” “pokes” and messages to come in right? Not exactly. If you want to find someone worthwhile, and not waste your time on someone you have zero in common with, it’s going to take a little work on your part, just like traditional dating. A little work now can pay off in the long run!  [Read more…]

Married Several Times

Married Multiple times

I knew what I was doing when I hoisted myself onto the barstool next to him. He would not remember me, but I had the cutest story to remind him, even cuter than he was. It was Sunday and there were one dollar Rolling Rocks at the restaurant across the street from the laundry mat in my neighborhood. Not a bad way to pass the time between cycles.

Jay had been one of the Assistant Principals at the first high school I worked at in town. I was on the campus for underclassmen and he was on the campus for upperclassmen. As I shimmied my bar stool closer to the bar, he turned and caught my eye. Smiling, I said “Hi, Mr. Brown.”  With squinting eyes, as if to focus,  he cocked his head and smiled.  “Don’t worry, it has been a few years, we worked together at North.”  He casually put his head down and bashfully, but flirtatiously said he did not remember.  Being there was about a decade and a pinch between us, I think he may have been relieved that I was not a former student.

My beer arrived, and I treated him to the story of the day I was on the ‘big kid’ campus to turn in some coaching paperwork when the bell rang and he urged me to “go to class young lady.” When I turned to face him and he saw the faculty badge he was as embarrassed that day as he was amused this day. We shared some friendly banter and laughter. I went to switch loads, fearful he would not be there when I returned.  I was pleased when I found him right where I left him. We exchanged numbers, as I knew my laundry would be crispy dry and my afternoon beer enjoyment would be wrapping up.  He slid off his stool with a kiss to my cheek and a promise to call. As I summoned my check I was charmed to find that Mr. Brown had paid for my Rolling Rocks and late afternoon snack while I was switching my last load. Nice move, very nice move.

He kept his promise and we had a few wonderful low key dates. I knew that he was divorced with a preteen and teenager. This did not bother me. I always thought I would be a great step-mom. Every other weekend would be just fine with me. I could be the cool step-mom that they would tell everything to. After all I was the cool teacher that wished her students wouldn’t tell her so much. I secretly hoped they would like me enough to take care of me in old age.

married several times

I knew that the husband of one of the staff trainers at my school worked with Jay, so I did some poking around as casually as only I can. Which is basically “Hey Martha, your husband works with Jay Brown, what can you tell me?”  While Martha was excited to hear I was dating, she did make a remark about the age difference. And then…”you know he has been married three times. That would make you his fourth wife if this keeps going.”

I liked him. I liked him quite a bit. But I certainly did not want to be anyone’s fourth wife if he was going to be my first husband and only. I am old school on this one; I am only doing it once. The lesson here, vet him, just like a political candidate. If you have the means from a reliable and hopefully discreet source check out your beau! I wish him the best in finding a companion. Sorry Mr. Brown, it was just not going to be this girl.

Two Girls and One Guy

Two Girls and One Guy

two girls and one guys

On the way out of an all day concert a girlfriend and I started talking to two guys, the respective interested parties exchanged numbers. Her guy started calling immediately, I think maybe before we left the parking lot.  Knowing that the day’s sweat and beer had wiped any of my cuteness I did not expect a call from the handsome and witty gentleman I exchanged numbers with. He was a Nicholas Cage look alike with darker features.

A few days passed and no call, but my girlfriend called to report that she was being swamped with calls from the overzealous guy she had met. A traits she found a complete turn off. She asked if I would call his friend, we shall call him my generation’s Nicholas Cage (MGNC), to explain that she was not interested. Yes, we were that young that she would not tell him herself.

I called MGNC to do my duty. He of course, thought it was an excuse to call him. The conversation went well and my witty side made an appearance long enough for him to ask me to dinner. Dinner went well and with his voice, velvety- also much like Nicholas Cage, I was invited back to his apartment. We were engaged in some fairly innocent kissing in his bedroom when there was a knock at the door. To get to the front door, you would have passed the bedroom window. Although the blinds were closed, the visitor had been able to detect the activity behind the blinds.

Two Girls and One Guy

What happened next was embarrassing for all involved. She obviously thought she was still in a relationship with MGNC, as he did not. There was yelling, the throwing of a watch, and a rather harsh thud as he was pushed into the door. I was frozen. At 6’0 tall I have been scared of very few women. But this chick was pissed. Finally she left and he took me home. We saw each other for a bit longer. And then he took his good looks and movie star voice to LA. He has had some success with commercials and reoccurring roles in series.

I have been on both sides of this situation since. When a relationship wanes, there is discussion of a “break,” or “seeing other people.” Both parties try to hold on to what was good. They continue to hang out, maybe occasionally sleep together. For the guy it is over. Know that for a guy there are no nuances, there is on and there is off. In his mind he has been set free. The girl thinks she is going to be notified when he starts seeing someone else. She is not. This does not make him bad, this makes it simple.
