Date 8

Well folks, I'm pretty sure it's the beginning of the end with Logger. It may also be the end of the end, but every time I think that's the case, the phone rings. Nonetheless, it seems this train is heading to Splitsville.

Logger is always a gentleman and picked me up for our movie date. We saw Horrible Bosses. My assessment? Eh. Too many butt jokes and men trying to talk louder than their costars in order to steal the scene, but entertaining-ish. And can someone please tell me where this fountain of youth is, from which Jen Aniston is obviously drinking? Jeesh, the body on that woman.

Anywho, watched movie, drove me home, weird peck (on the lips) to say goodbye, and then I get out of the car and my southern gent didn't wait to see if I got in OK. Just drove off.

Here's the deal: I don't care if you're a woman, man, or child, one should always wait to make sure that their friend gets into the house safely at night. It's common courtesy. I don't want to get all feminist on anyone, but I must say that I feel this is a bit more of an issue for women, as we lack the upper body strength. AND, it was a change in behavior as he's always made sure I got in OK in the past. So there's that.

What's a girl to do? Well, I'll tell you what I did. I walked by myself, in the dark, to a local pub down the street to meet my friends. Because if I can escape nighttime walkers in front of my house with my roommates home, surely I'm on a roll.

Tonight is Date #9 with Tall. We're going to a concert. I'm betting on a good time, but I'm pretty sure he's not my husband either. This trip abroad could not come at a more perfect time because I think it's time to CONTROL+ALT+DELETE this social experiment. I have some ideas how to switch it up so it's about to get INSANE. Well, in September.


  1. I agree on the waiting to see that a friend gets inside issue. I NEVER drive off! And when someone leaves my house, I wait for them to get into their car and drive away before heading back inside. It is courtesy and safety.

  2. As a male reader of your blog, I find these posts interesting and slightly helpful for my own dating life. However I fear for falling for anyone as picky as yourself. :/

  3. Oh no, I'm not picky. My therapist says I'm "particular."
