I have read and shared my wealth of knowledge on dating with other women, and one resource I like to spread regards the book He's Just Not That Into You! It is indeed right on in a lot of cases the things that men do to show you that they are into you or not...for example, CALLING you, asking you out, and whatnot. One such topic in the book is excuses to NOT be into you!

Sometimes we women make up excuses for them, too - such as 'oh, he travels a lot' or 'he's just getting over a relationship'. The truth of the matter they are excuses - if they are into you they are into you...period! Did I mention that I have often spread this knowledge forth to prosper among other single ladies?

Well, once in a while, the book and myself are wrong! Sometimes there ARE legitimate excuses like the one I experienced after a date! Here's the scoop!

I went on a lovely date - a hike to the mountains, gorgeous hour-long drive, good company, beautful scenery, great picture opportunities. We had such a good time, a few dates in, and I invited him to join up later with my friends for dancing and he agreed. I thought, 'GREAT!' progress, meeting the friends. Well only 2 hours later, I texted that we were ready and he replied 'would love to, but can't. will explain tomorrow. have fun'. In my girlie-ness, I thought what could possibly change in two hours' time that he wouldn't want to come!? I let it go, waited until the next day around noon to call him - no answer.

Then the biggie! I received a call from the hospital where he works and thought he had to go in - well HE DID!!! As a PATIENT!!!!

He went to work out in between our hike and going out, got chest pains and found himself passed out on the treadmill! Idid go physically visit him (he invited) in the hospital and saw him in a gown hooked up to heart monitors for my own two eyes! WOW!!

So, ladies, only once in a GREAT LONG while is an 'excuse' for real! Otherwise, I would stick to the generalizations where if it is too far out then it really IS an excuse and He's Just NOT That Into You! Stay tuned for more tales to come!

Blind Date

Well, I guess everyone's got to experience a blind turn!
My friend has just been dying to set me up with a guy at work, and finally I agreed!

He called promptly, was so polite, and we set up a hike, dinner and would then see what else would happen from there. When I got to the hiking spot we agreed to meet at, I realized that this was probably not the safest move I'd made, given that I AM Safety Girl and preach safe ways to date, have sex, etc. and ad nauseum! But, realized he also had a built-in level of trust since he's worked with my friend for 2 years...

It turned out fine! Was an enjoyable hike, we changed for dinner, had a good time there, all good and fun conversation. We ended up going out for drinks after dinner and staying out until 1:00 am! All in all, not a bad blind date - for having to have one! : )
