Forgive what is about to come, I’m…a LITTLE high on caffeine right now.
Soooo I know I’m not dating right now, but…I’m pretty sure I accepted a dinner invitation for this weekend. From a guy. Kind of against my will. And now I need to get out of it. Tactfully. Even though the only reason I want to get out of it is because I don’t think the guy is cute. Which I didn’t know until I saw a picture of him. Oh, and that was AFTER I already accepted the date.
It’s…kind of a long story.
Short version: A ‘friend’ (OK, acquaintance) decided to set me up on a blind date (don’t ask). I didn’t want to bother explaining my whole ‘I’m not dating right now’ logic, so in an effort to make things easy on myself I sort of let her. Now in my defense the guy was described to me as: Tall (like 6’), cute, brown hair, dimples, VERY successful, and nice. Who was I to fight fate if he was The One, right? Um…right.
Anyway, he called me last night, and it was…interesting. Some thoughts – I didn’t like his voice right off the bat (kind of dorky). He apparently liked mine though, since he complimented me on my ‘gorgeous’ voice right at the top of the conversation. I didn’t think much of it at the time, since I get that a lot (what can I say, I ‘give good voice’). I should have been more concerned though, because boy did the compliments continue. And I have to admit, I was a little thrown (I mean dude, you’ve been talking to me for 5 minutes – calm down). How bad did it get, you ask? Well, at one point he actually said, ‘You have a beautiful brain.’ Ooookayyyyy. (What the fuck does that even mean?!)
He may also end up being a stalker-type. At the very least he’s moderately creepy. You need another example? No problem – let’s play back this little exchange from our chat:
Dude: I live on the 15th floor of my building. I have a beautiful terrace – you should see it sometime.
Redhead: I’m afraid of heights.
Dude: Does this mean I have to sell my place?
Redhead: (nervous laugh) You’re kidding, right?
But I was determined to remain at least sort of positive…sort of. After all, bad voice and personality aside he could still be cute, right? The problem here was he already knew what I looked like (WHY oh WHY did I give this friend a picture to pass along?), while I remained in the dark. And when it came time for him to pressure me into making plans for this weekend (ed. note: FUCK!) I grudgingly accepted. And then I came out with it:
Redhead: You know, I won’t be able to recognize you if I don’t have a picture. Can you email me something?
Well…he did. AFTER the conversation was over and dinner had been arranged. And it was…not good. I’m not happy. But I need to be careful here, since I don’t want to offend the acquaintance who set this up (by LYING to me about what this dude looks like…unless she actually does think this guy is cute, which is…unfathomable really).
Just so you guys know though, there is NO WAY I’m going out with this dude over the weekend, so get your thinking caps on.
Oh, and in other not even remotely related (in other words, random) news:

I was thinking about buying a bustier/corset thingee, went onto the Frederick’s of Hollywood site to look at them, and then realized I had no use for one and it would be a total waste of money – so of course I bought one. I should get it in about a week;
I don’t want to say I’m bored now that with my professional situation is all copasetic and my private life is on hold, but…;
