The next contender for the golden cups (C-cup extra perky) entered the scene last weekend. I have pegged this young bachelor with the name Trail Blazer because, as president of his own ATV club, he has embarked on a conquest to cut new trails through the wilderness. His ambition to boldly go where no ATVer has gone before left me seriously impressed.
I was also impressed by the fact that he has a Bachelor’s degree and has used it to secure a career in computer programming. Plus, he is a homeowner. (Also impressive)
Friday night we met at a local restaurant for dinner. Afterwards, we went for a long walk through the park. Our conversation flowed effortlessly. He asked me questions like he was genuinely interested in the answer. Plus, he directed the questions to my face and not at my chest, which might have been challenging seeing I was wearing this dress…
The next day he called to ask me if I would like to go to a movie with him that evening. It seemed a little sudden, but I had no other plans and a movie sounded like fun. He suggested I pick the movie seeing he had selected the restaurant the night before, so we went to see Brave. (Super cute movie BTW) I know I should have picked Spiderman, but I wanted to keep things light.
After the movie, we stopped for a Margarita. Again, the conversation took off and I felt like we had known each other much longer than just one day.
When we parted, he stole a quick kiss. I’m actually a little embarrassed to admit, I didn’t even see it coming.
My inadequate response must not have shown though because he asked me to make plans again during the week. I played it cool and said I wasn't available.
(Somebody smart once advised me not to be available ALL of the time.)
I imagine my answer must have shaken him a little because he asked me if I was seeing anyone else. If you recall, that same question arose very quickly with The Gunslinger, and maybe a little too quickly with Trail Blazer as well in my opinion. Our conversation (via text) went a little something like this:
Trail Blazer: “Are you looking to date multiple guys for multiple dates or more giving one guy a shot that you are interested in?”
(Again, I went with stone cold honesty)
Me: “Well to be honest, I would date multiple guys if I was interested in more than one. However, right now, I’m only interested in one guy.”
(I feel he should have been very satisfied with that answer. No?)
Trail Blazer: “Okay. I’m just not looking to date everyone in town while trying to get to know someone that I like and would be looking for someone that shares that same mindset. With that being said would you still want to hang out?”
(Wait a second! Everyone in town??? Is it me, or is that statement dangerously close to insinuating that I’m a whore?)
Me: “Hmmm. It sounds like you are asking me not to see anybody else. After only two dates with you, I’m not sure how I feel about that.”
“Nah… It came across a little weird. I realize it’s only been two dates. I guess I was trying to find out a little more about what you are looking for. Next time I’ll try a different approach.”
(Oh! Okay. He gets another date.)
I went out with him again last night. We went to karaoke at a Chinese bar. (Oh yeah, that was my idea!) He had mentioned that he liked karaoke, so I thought it was a good suggestion… until he got a glass of wine in me and convinced me to sing.
I tried to convince him it wasn't a good idea by using this cute line: "I just started to like you, I don't want to scare you away with my singing."
But he topped it with an even better line of his own when he said: “I want to see the real you. No holding back.”
(He best be careful what he wishes for!)
Not only did that get me on stage, it also got him a strategically placed kiss just below the ear.
So the "real me" belted out Lita Ford’s Kiss Me Deadly with gusty passion… and I totally nailed it!
I got fist pumps and high fives from the front row groupies on my way off stage. It may have been entirely possible that they were just happy I was finished. However, my date was still sitting at our table. So maybe I really did nail it!
But that was the only thing that got nailed last night!
