Okay, so Bachelor #6 called and asked me if I gave his proposal some thought. And I said I did. I calmly explained to him that since we had yet to go on a date, we couldn't very well be exclusive. He sputtered and asked, "What do you mean? We've been on like six or seven dates!" I responded that we have hung out six or seven times, but have yet to go on a date. I said that a date consisted of the guy picking the girl up and taking her out and then escorting her back home at the end of the night. He considered this and then asked if I would be willing to wait until he could give those things to me. (He is finishing up school right now.) I said that I was willing to do that and that in the meantime we could continue to hang out. He then asked me if I was seeing other people. I said that I had talked to other men ( which is the truth!) but had not been on another date. (Mind you this is not for lack of trying...)
Now, we "hung out" again on Wednesday. And I wish that I could feel that spark with him. He is perfect for me in so many ways! He is as smart as I am, patient with me and my hardheaded views, kind, complimentary and I know he would be a good provider....but THERE IS NO SPARK. I was assured of this when at the end of the night I did all I could to avoid a make out session with him so that I could get back to work.
So look for the next post when Bachelor #6 is a memory...
