I second that

Whoohoo, finally a freaking second date!

Everyone keeps asking me how it went and I really don’t know what to tell them. Everything about it has left me stunned and confused. First of all, he kept putting off cementing our plans until about 2 hours before the actual date. I definitely got the feeling that he was holding out just in case something better came along. I know what you’re thinking. “Better than Sassy? Pfft. Not possible.” I know, right?!?! Then he was about 15 minutes late. We did the whole half hug half kiss awkward thing. He sat in the theatre with his hands folded in his lap. Seriously. I am not making this up. Hands folded in his lap or even tucked between his legs. What the hell is up with that? I swear I do not have cooties! He kissed me good-bye. A real kiss even. But it was about 1.2 seconds and then it was done. And I’m pretty sure he only did that because I was so tired of the half and half thing we had been doing that I sort of stuck my face Right. In. Front. Of. His. Lips. He had no choices to make. Just kiss. And still it was uncommitted.
Yet he keeps asking to see me again.

To top it all off, I think he’s related to this guy:


He shaves between his eyebrows.
I think I shall call him Unibrow.

And hell yes I’m seeing him again.

I don't know, Sassy.... this one doesn't sound promising. I would have told him to piss off at the point where he was messing you about on finalizing the plans. Also, if he's that hirsute on his face, there's no telling what horrors lurk under his shirt and trousers. I vote to move on.

I don't know...he may be a great guy, just socially inept. Give it more time to see if he's got more good stuff going on than you can see right off the bat.

And after you get to know him better you can do what my sister-in-law does with my brother...she sneaks up on him at night with a flashlight and a pair of tweezers and plucks as much of his unibrow as she can before he wakes up enough to make her quit.

I want to give him another shot. I just don't want to be his "fall back on" girl. Right now I can't tell if it's that or if he is just a little bit clueless. As for the unibrow, he would definitely need to learn to tweeze if he wants to stay long term. ;)

Wow. Hope the second one goes better, and that he turns out not to be a flake after all.

SP said...

He cancelled for tonight... *sigh*

Why do we always want to assume that men are "inept" or "clueless" when they do shitty stuff? Stop making excuses now. He's an asshole. You're much too good for him... next....
