Sue, I’m happy you’re having fun and you’re so right to be dating a few people at a time until something clicks.
My friend Nora was dating a guy she didn’t really like too much whom she’d been fixed up with by her octogenarian neighbor. On a really good day, she was lukewarm about the guy. He had a weird odor--like cat pee--in his hair and told the same stories over and over ad nauseum. Plus he was bankrupt, but she kept on dating him. Either she didn’t trust online dating--which would have brought her dozens of more appealing choices--or she just couldn’t say something like “I like you but I’m allergic to cats, so alas we have to call it quits.”
At any rate, each week, this charming fellow was available on either Friday or Saturday night, never both. And he never even called to ask her out until Thursday anyway.
Nora obsessively checked on him, calling his home and hanging up, at all hours on the weekend evenings when he was supposedly “busy with the kids”. She was not attracted to this man, dreaded the thought of kissing him, and even went so far as to stuff cotton balls up her nostrils to avoid smelling him. Yet, she hung around for his calls and practically stalked him.
If she'd been willing to get online and date a few other people, she would have had much more fun and she would have ditched this guy asap instead of waiting around until he announced he was engaged to a woman in New Jersey who was a foster mother to 13 cats and an un-neutered 200 pound Vietnamese Pot Belly Pig. http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/swine/vietnamesepotbelly/index.htm
