The Single Sister Dates

Thats right, this single girl is dating again.  

I haven't decided how I'm going to handle blogging about my dating life.  One thing I have decided is that I'm not going to get into any past relationships and to protect the innocent (or not so innocent) I'll probably take a page and use nicknames for anyone that I do mention.  :o)

I generally have I a rule for myself not to meet anyone from myspace.  I've done it a few times in the past, against better judgement, and it never ends well.  But this particular guy messaged me on Monday and seemed genuine.  I think it was the "Dear Emily" at the start of his messages and not the usual "hey baby" that some guys like to start out with that caught my attention.  Maybe chivalry isn't dead.

So to get to the point, I met him at his Softball game on Tuesday (at which he hit a home run after he noticed
that I was there watching) and got a bite to eat afterwards (at which they had to ask us to leave because they
were closing and we were still busy talking).

Guess what?
He actually lives in town.
He works a normal day job.
He has his own place (i.e. he doesn't live with his parents).

So just from that list I think you could get a good idea of what went wrong in past dating experiences.

We are going out again Friday night and I'm looking forward to learning more about him. And hopefully I'll
come up with a nickname for him by that time. :o)


  1. I genuinely hope this "catch" works out for you, Emily. One of these days you are going to meet your Mister Right and I cannot wait to hear all of the fabulous details.
    You're dishing on Saturday, right?
    I'm all ears!
    Have a great time Friday night!

  2. Whoo-hoo!!! Now that we've decided that a late-September bday is no longer a criteria, I won't even ask. I look forward to the tales, albeit I'll have to wait until my return from St. Louie...
