miss match 7
Between the last time I saw him and now, he's gotten...well, creepy. We haven't seen that much of each other and I barely know him and yet he's decided to be smitten with me. It's rather uncomfortable. And before you say that's cute and I should just enjoy it, my unease has made me begin to think that physical intimacy with the nerd would make my skin crawl. Thus, his invitation for next weekend at a B&B in Vermont is not appealing at all. Unless we take separate cars and get separate rooms.
Couple this with the two hand grenades he tossed into our most recent conversation, and I think you would have to agree.
Hand grenade 1: in discussing our senses of humor, he came out and admitted that he liked racist jokes, then he defended this by positing the argument that stereotypes are funny because they're true. Ugh. Defending racism as far as I am concerned is completely non-negotiable.
Hand grenade 2: in discussing where things might be going (I was deliberately vague because, as I said, I was in the information-gathering stage), he mentioned casually that he was in something that had "gone on too long" and that he just was "too lazy to end it yet." So your solution is to go online, find someone new, and use that person as your reason to break up???? So not on.
So there you have it. I think that six dates is a good number - I wouldn't have known this till now. People start to relax and show their true colors after being on their best (?) behavior for a couple dates.
