Dating is a strange phenomenon. Dating around is even stranger. Lots of people do it, myself included (though not anymore of course!) For the record, this does not necessarily make you a commitment phobe. It gives you a better perspective and (in theory anyway) will help you make better dating decisions which can only be a very good thing!
However, if you are going to date around, please, for the love of God, do it right!
As mentioned in several other posts, I meet a LOT of strange people on my daily commute and most of them against my will. This particular guy was, I’m guessing, trying to impress me.
The only thing he impressed me with was his storytelling ability.
I don’t sleep much. Too much running back and forth across state lines all day every day.
Sleep is for the weak.
Catnaps, however, are for every single spare moment I can find.
We’ve all had it at one time or another. Verbal diarrhea. Foot-in-mouth disease. Call it what you will, but, inevitably, you will eventually say something foolish to a date and really really wish you could un-say it.
The bad news is you can’t.
The good news is that it provides great fodder for my blog.
I was not a happy commuter last Friday night. For starters, I missed my train by a mere two minutes and every other train that was scheduled to leave at the same time was delayed by 5 minutes. But no, not mine. That line may very well have the timeliest trains in MBTA history. So I had to wait an hour and a half at North Station to catch the midnight train home…and then go right back to work again the next morning. Needless to say, I was not amused.
