Here I am again

Well, it’s me again, waiting to go to work again, thinking of something to post again.
I feel pretty good. I expect success with that same ‘ol computer at work today. It was copying files when I left it last night.
Friday I go on vacation. I mistakenly put in for vacation a month early, because I thought my UK dive buddy was coming this month but it’s next month, I considered rescheduling when I realized the mistake, but….NAH! I’ll take off now AND then, I have the time!
Last night I was supposed to go night beach walking with the Fundraiser Girl, but she cancelled. If she hadn’t cancelled, I would have. I know she is too busy and is making time for me. I doubt anything is going to happen beween us. I still haven’t even kissed her. We are opposites. She hates coffee, doesn’t dive, afraid of the water, popular, very good looking. Someone I trust completely told me that having a lot in common isn’t too important, so I will keep going and see what comes of it.
On my brain is the girl from the other island. She’s who I think about. I’m trying not to get emotionally attached but I think I already am. I’m going to see her when I take the abovementioned vacation. Her downside is, living too far away, and has plans to leave next year.
Another heretofore unmentioned devolopment is P. I met her at the grocery store one morning last week. I’ve known her for years, but never really talked to her much or spent time with her. She has never been single, I am sure she is single now. I talked to her yesterday on the phone when I was heading out to work. I think she is definitely a long term relationship kind of girl. She is a scuba instructor working in the dive industry here. I will call her tonight.
I hope reading this doesn’t come across like I’m boasting or anything like that. I hate this. I feel guilty even talking to more than one girl at once. I wish I could just meet the right girl first and meet only the right girl. I want to BE in a relationship, I just don’t want to go through the process of getting into one.
And I don’t want to get in the wrong one again either, especially not!

  1. Mark, you’re preaching to the choir here! I understand what you are saying! Ya gotta cut through all the bull before you get where you want to be. I don’t like it much either.

  2. It will all fall into place for you, try to be patient. It’s easy to say and hard to live by. I think of all of my life stories and experiences and hope I don’t have to repeat them all too many more times in life with different guys I would potentially date, just one more time would be really cool. I would rather listen to someone else tell me about themselves than have to tell all about me and my life. The dating process is grueling and I understand what you mean.

  3. When my son lived in D.C., he dated a girl from Ireland. She worked for Air Lingus (sp?) and flew to D.C. every weekend. Their relationship worked until her company stopped flying into D.C. It was the easiest breakup he ever had and he never had to worry about running into her at the mall.

  4. People used to tell me that if I stopped looking for someone Mr Perfect would show up. I thought they were full of poopy. But after a nasty break up with a paraplegic (don’t ask) I decided to only hang out with friends and not date anymore. The next thing I know G-man and I fell in love. So maybe there is something to that theory. My advice though – life is too short, enjoy it to the fullest while you can. If that means dating 2 or 3 girls at the same time, hell yeah, go for it!

  5. Preaching to the choir! too funny!Christa, I know what you mean!Lita, That sounds terrible! That’ll never be me!Daisy, I’ve tried it before, I end up heartbroken and alone! My poor heart can’t take it again! one by one please!
