“Sunny days, everybody loves them. Tell me baby, can you stand the rain? – Can You Stand the Rain, New Edition
How fitting. As I write this post it’s raining in Bed Stuy. I’m sitting here looking out of my living room window watching the raindrops fall.
No New Edition, I cannot stand the rain – especially when that rain is in the form of men. I know I know, I shouldn’t be complaining right? But I am, well kinda. I went from drought season to Monsoon season in a matter of days. I thought I lived in Brooklyn, not southeast Asia. What the actual hell is going on?!?!?!?!
Mr. Confused (click here for background story –> https://unicorninbrooklyn.com/2014/06/10/and-then-there-was-that-time-that-i-didnt-know-wtf-happened/) has decided to wait eight days after our first date to ask for a second. Ummm, should I be flattered because I’m not. I’m the opposite of flattered; I’m borderline annoyed at his audacity. I haven’t responded to his vague invitation for a second date because he never proposed a specific date and time. Hanging out over food “sometime soon” isn’t exactly my idea of a formal invitation.
I assumed what anyone would after a first date – not hearing from the other person within 24 hours is indicative of no spark or chemistry. I took the hint and proceeded to move on. Why wait on something that wasn’t leading anywhere? Apparently I was wrong because he was taking his time (eight days to be exact) to ask me out again. A lot can happen in eight days. In my case something did, another man picked up where he left of. You snooze, you lose.
While he slept, Thai (click here for a background story –> http://https://unicorninbrooklyn.com/2014/06/11/was-i-just-stood-up/) didn’t. We’ve been in communication every day since our first date (that almost didn’t happen) and I must say that I am enjoying every minute. I’m not making wedding arrangements or anything, but I am enjoyed in the conversations thus far. Thai has asked me out again and I have accepted. So far so good right? Then why do I feel so torn?
I am at a fork in the road and it’s time that I make a decision. Do I date both dudes until I’m forced to make a decision or do I chose one now? Do I see which guy I have more chemistry with? Do I allow both men to wine and dine me (because I love eating out as much as possible, especially for free – don’t judge me)? This is such a conundrum! Single girl sh*t. Single girl problems, but not too shabby of a problem to have huh?
I am attracted to both men equally, but I must say Thai is edging Mr. Confused out for obvious reasons (he’s direct unlike his vague competition, he’s consistent, and he’s already asked me out again). Seems like I just made a decision, or did I?
Until next time friends!
