Oh it gets better

Now this guy that stood me up a 4th or 5th time... I'm losing count... wants to set me up with this guy he met last week. He thinks that I might be interested in him. He says that this guy just opened a recording studio in Amarillo and he met him at some event in which he pulls up in a Ferrari. There's some red flags right there. It's not that I don't think I'm deserving of a guy that drives a Ferrari, but I'm fairly certain that someone like that simply wouldn't be my type. He goes into this big spiel about him and how all these women were practically throwing themselves at him and he just brushed them off. He says that guy was looking for someone he could trust so the online guy thinks of me. Woo hoo. So he talks him up to me and tells me I should contact him. I tell him no thanks. It's not my style. If a guy contacts me, fine, but I'm not going to go talk to a random guy like that. Well, he gets the guy to send me an IM and I realize that I've already chatted with him before. I wasn't impressed then and I wasn't impressed today. The guy is a snob and I had no interest in him. He made a point to tell me that he had a lot more money now. Big deal.

Abbagirl... I'd love for someone I know and trust to set me up with someone because honestly, I don't have any more faith in myself. I am obviously not good at choosing men to date. Problem is that there are no decent, single men my age, in this area that are left. I've had some fellow speech teachers talk of setting me up, but nothing has ever come of it. It's always one of those passing conversations that I just avoid now. At this point, I really don't care. Sure, I hate being alone, but I think it's better than any alternatives right now.

I'm just going to make do with what I have and keep myself busy. If Prince Decent happens to pop up out of the blue... well hip-hip-hooray. (I'm not interested in Prince Charming.) In the meantime, I am certainly not looking for him any more. Maybe I'm just too socially phobic like Andrew. I'm not good at striking up conversations or maintaining them. I have few relationships and the ones I do have took years to develop. So there we are. No use mulling over it. Perhaps I am simply getting old and bitter.

At least the guy didn't show up driving a Honda Civic while wearing a Ferrari jacket and hat!

Old and bitter!
Nonsense. Shall I call you "Knudsen"? Ignore them idiots, you deserve a better one.

I am glad the red flags went up. They both sound like pick up artists to me. You're better off without either of them. How many miles away would you be comfortable in traveling to meet someone? Seriously. Is there a larger town near you? Is Amarillo it?

Abbagirl - Distance is not an issue with me. I've dealt with a 1500 mile distance. However, to meet someone for the first time, I would insist that they come here to meet me first. I will not, however, meet someone online because I've discovered that most men lie about themselves. The closest town the size of Amarillo is an hour and a half away. After that, it's Oklahoma City or Albuquerque which are 4 hours. From there it's Dallas at 6 hours.

Jaded maybe, old and bitter no. You just know life is to short to hang out with the toads. If you talk like you write, Mr. Decent will show up one day.
