I'm Tired But It's OK


So, back from a week's vacation in SC with my family. Those of you with whom I'm friends on Facebook have probably seen some of the pictures. I love that week with my family since I don't get to be a part of their daily lives and miss them a lot. M loves it too because she gets to spend time with her Family. Funny, even at 3 1/2, the concept of family isn't lost on her. She loves that she has grandparents, an aunt and uncle, and cousins. She was totally at ease with everyone and really seemed to enjoy herself.


Now back to life as usual, but not quite...my dates with CP (CVS girl) and RN (the woman from the arcade at the beach) happened the week before last. CP is very funny and cute and I had a good time with her. Some cultural difference might make it tough though. She's from Taiwan and while she's been in the States for many years, her family is over there and a lot of the pop culture references I talked about she didn't get. She's a bit older than I thought (31), which is a good thing. Funny thing though, is that I'm actually closer to her mother's age (50) than her age. Doh! We got a good laugh out of that. She's in Turkey for a friend's wedding so I won't be able to see her for a bit...however...


RN and I went out two nights later and had such a great time, we went out again the next night! We spoke and texted continuously during the week I was at the beach and got together again last night and stayed out until 1 AM. For those of you who don't know me, I'm in bed by 10 regardless of who I'm with so this is huge for me. And again, we had such a good time that we're going to see each other again tonight. She's so sweet, very affectionate, has a beautiful smile and giant blue eyes. Total melters for me. And as I said before, she doesn't seem "complicated" by all the money, status, or other distractions of the city. She never even asked me what I did for a living until the 4th or 5th time we talked. That's usually one of the first questions you get in NYC. I mean this in the best way possible, but so far she seems like a very simple family girl. I LOVE that. She's a "good girl" as well in that no rushing into the physical. While one part of me (down below) would LOVE to do that, it never seems to work out. I'm happy she has the smarts (or self control) to take that part slow since I DON'T :)


So it looks like I'll be tired again tomorrow. Oh well. Looks like serious potential with this one. For that, I'll gladly miss out on a few hours of sleep.

That's AWESOME that things are going so well with RN. Sounds very promising. Things with my bowling alley dude flopped after date #2. Back to the drawing board for me!

Glad you had a nice vacay.

Danielle said...

Damn, dude, keep it up. I am living my fantasy single blogging life through you, keep it up. No not that, Im talking about the action. Glad the vacation was nice. Keep us posted. Hope you and the wonderful daughter are having a good summer so far. Hope you are still hitting the gym too. Work hard and Play hard.

@MindyMom - are you serious? You met a dude at a bowling alley? How come when I was single the only thing I got at the bowling alley was drunk. Damn I missed out

So many girls, so little time..........

Just telling it like it is said...

I'm rooting for the nurse well because I'm an RN so I always think that we are great! The best thing about nurses is that you can do crazy stuff and we think it is normal...I'm glad you had time with your family!!!

so exciting to hear the latest developments! your family vaca sounds awesome. my family used to go to the outer banks of nc every year, and unfortunately it's been awhile, so it makes me nostalgic.

sounds like RN just might be a keeper! :)
