In the last “Dating” blog I started out explaining that I haven’t dated for a spell because “For a while I started meeting women I really connected with. . .I had met 2 other women and started to see what I not only want in that special someone, but what I need. . . unfortunately those ended quickly and never gave it a chance to go anywhere. They disappeared like my dignity when I took that Zumba class with Blades.” After that, the cheating and failed engagements I took a break from dating. . . and noticed money in my wallet for the first time in a very long while.
After my hiatus I was ready to start dating again. Like I said I had a much clearer idea of what I want and need in someone who’s willing to look at my collection of 30 Superman statues and me in my Superman PJ’s and say “well. . . at least he’s a damn good snuggler.” So I hit the dating scene running. Put my dating profile back online, started wearing clean underwear again and re-activated my mutant ability to be a good flirt. Like Cyclops my power comes mainly from my eyes. . . except you don’t get obliterated by a laser beam.
Less than a week back on the dating scene an amazing woman entered my life and things started off SWEET then poof. . . nothing. . . disappeared. This seems to be a recurring theme for me. Remember the “2 other women” I mentioned dating before I took my hiatus? Well this new one became number 3.
Here is the pattern of behavior out of these 3 women. We start talking, we meet for dinner. With all 3 women there was hand holding a lot of kissing by the end of the night. There is a second date with the same results, a third, maybe a fourth and then . . . nothing. No return of phone calls or texts. . . nothing. It’s like they went into the crop field to wait for the aliens to abduct them.
I keep going over these situations in my mind, scratching the top of my head like an ape wondering what I did wrong. That’s where you ladies out there come in. . . what did I do? Last I checked going on several dates where there is hand holding and kissing and getting that look you women send guys saying “yep I’m into you” are usually good signs. Did you women change something in the dating manifesto on us guys and forget to tell us?
So you understand I’m not bitter about dating anymore. I’m excited about the possibilities again and if it happens great, if not that’s ok too. I just found the whole situation weird and looking for some answers.
