i had a rough evening friday evening and yesterday. lately i've been getting the itch to date. i just want to go out on a date, but not only that. a good date. which of course is asking a lot, and i realize that. i've been on a lot of first dates, and hardly ever are they good, but i've been lucky and i have experienced a handful of good first dates. but at the same time dating is scary. but lately i've just been craving that attention. i've been wanting to get my flirt on! ;)
the radio station that i listen to put on a special event on friday, putting together single guys and ladies, and i dragged along my one single co-worker with me to go the festivities in hopes of finding a date. the event was called "erica's mile of men". erica is on the morning show, and she had about 50 guys lined up outside elitch garden's friday morning holding numbers, while ladies were able to drive by the men, chat with them, then meet them at jackson's downtown for a little happy hour mixer later that afternoon. the morning event was actually a lot of fun. yes it was awkward, but i do so much better one on one. i was definitely attracted to a handful of the guys and was looking forward to having more time with them at jackson's. to prepare for the happy hour event i changed into my new dress! i was super excited to wear it. this event started at 5pm, which was when julie and i got there. like any social get together it usually takes a couple of hours for things to get really hopping and to feel the energy. well time wasn't on our side. julie had her nephew's birthday dinner to attend, so we only stayed until 6:30pm. unfortunately that wasn't enough time to really make a connection with anyone. we did approach a group of the guys, but they actually blew us off. and the guy to girl ratio was definitely in favor of the guys. their were easily 4 girls to every 1 guy there. so i was home by 7pm friday night, all dressed up and cute, with nowhere to go. for the first time in a long time i actually felt lonely. that feeling carried over into yesterday, although not as bad. i have a coworker that lives super close to me, and we did a walk/jog yesterday morning. i was suppose to meet another coworker to do weights at the gym, but the walk/ jog took longer that what i was anticipating, so i did some weights by myself, and spent the rest of day wanting some sort of human interaction to just be alone. it was an unwelcome feeling.
here is julie and i ready to go mingle!but today was a good day. today was a perfect combination of human interaction and alone time, which is what i'm used to, and is in my comfort zone, so i liked it. this morning i slept in and did 50/50 which is at 10:30am. i ran into sarah at the gym, and she invited me to lunch when class was over and when she was done with her client at 11:30am. well come to find out our friends bobby and april were there doing weights, so we joined them is some weight training. needless to say we didn't leave the gym until after 1pm. after sarah and i ate i came home changed and immediately went back to the gym to lay out at the pool. this weekend was hot, and i loved it! i'm going to miss lounging at the pool so much! it is such a relaxing time. i'm sad that the summer is coming to a close.
to wrap up, i'm working on putting myself out there. on trying to be open to dating. if anyone has any tips on how to do that, i'm open to all comments and suggestions! thanks!
