Clubbing it

I am sorry that you haven't heard from me for days. This is because absolutely NOTHING happened in my life for about 2 days. NO phone calls, no dates: just life at the grindstone. For those people who think that the single life is all glitz and unattached glamor, so ...

Bikram Yoga

So last night I went to do Bikram Yoga. How did I get roped into it? I asked my ex to join me for a Zumba class (it was bring a guy, get in free day). He convinced me that Bikram Yoga was MUCH better because it's maximum calorie burn ...

Closure

Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, the dam finally broke. I was so consumed with my fantasies that Lex was missing me as much as I was missing him, and with the hopes that he would realize the error of his ways, that I decided to contact him.  I know, I know... ...

Great Friendships

I am feeling extraordinarily happy right now. I had the most wonderful evening, and was reminded of the importance of great friends. My friend Dana called me and asked if I wanted to meet her at Ralph's for Italian ices. When it comes to choosing between wallowing and Ralph's ...

Wallowing

I am still wallowing in my own misery a bit. I have been feeling really sad about Lex. About the loss of the potential of a really good relationship. But I guess that unless both people are looking to fully realize the potential, there is no potential. And so it ...

Ignore Looks?

So I’ve been speaking to this guy (lets call him Arty). We met online. He might be on the little old side of things for me (8 years difference), but he seemed nice, and had a great picture up.  It was black and white, and did look a little school yearbook-ish, but I didn’t pay much attention to

Nice Surprise

So he picked me up (about a 1/2 hour late).  And… well … it was a nice surprise. He looked a lot better than in the (2nd) photo. He has a nice open face and seems very sweet.

He was a real gentleman.  He took me to my favorite Thai restaurant.  Dinner was lovely. Great conversation and an all-round nice time.  For some reason, I was exhausted.  After dinner, he wanted to see a

Bikram Yoga

So last night I went to do Bikram Yoga. How did I get roped into it? I asked my ex to join me for a Zumba class (it was bring a guy, get in free day). He convinced me that Bikram Yoga was MUCH better because it’s maximum calorie burn with little effort, and promised that next Zumba day, he will come and pay for both of us to get in. Calorie burn for little effort? I’m signed up!

So, first of all, you might ask why

Just Lunch

I went out to lunch with my brother-in-law this afternoon. I did some really minor stuff to help him at work, so he over-reacted and took me to a fabulous restaurant for lunch. So much for my diet. (Crispy mango calamari salad, steak, fries and desert.) Can anyone say 4000-sit-ups? Aside from the calorie explosion from my lack of self control, it was a great afternoon.

Right after lunch, Arty (my Saturday date)

Disappointing

My date for tonight (the one I was looking forward to) called to postpone. He says that he is on the 2nd day of a bad cold, and that today is worse. He specifically said: “Please don’t take this as a sign of disinterest, but I really am sick and don’t feel like I would be good company.” He said he would call next week to reschedule. I have my doubts, but it will not be the first time if I am

Clubbing it

I am sorry that you haven’t heard from me for days. This is because absolutely NOTHING happened in my life for about 2 days. NO phone calls, no dates: just life at the grindstone. For those people who think that the single life is all glitz and unattached glamor, so sorry to disappoint you. Its not always possible for you to live vicariously through us footloose and  fancy-free folks.

Actually, there is one new update.

Budding Romance

I had a lovely time at dinner with Arty. He picked me up forty minutes late (again!). I guess that this is his standard. Next time I will take my time in getting ready. He called me when he was already 10 minutes late to say that he would be late. I was not too bothered because I was catching up on my DVR.

At my suggestion, he took me to a local trattoria, which has good service, delicious food and fantastic ambiance. Arty
