One Bostonian's Misadventures in Dating

Brief Catch-Up on Life and Mini Marky Mark


Sorry I’ve been kind of out of it. I’ve been running around like crazy, launching a start up and everything. I also auditioned at Fenway over the weekend to be the next announcer (fingers crossed!) and got to hit in the batting cages with one of my favorite players, so things have been all weird here.


Things with Mini Marky Mark are okay, I think. I say that because I have seen him once since before New Years Eve. At first I was really panicky about it, thinking he was dodging me, but we were still in touch at least. He went to a different party on New Years, went on vacation for a few days, then had the flu, and then was at a conference for a few days. Then on top of that, he had to catch up on work. I was starting to feel like I should give up, but we were able to make plans and went out on Wednesday. Our original plans were to go to a movie, but we ended up going to our favorite hipster bar for some beers and then back to my place. I feel like I was kinda weird in the beginning, but he was very sweet during the whole night, as usual. I did tease him “Do I have to wait a whole month to see you again?”, and he laughed, said no, and then said that he had no travel plans until March for work so he’ll be around. So, I guess that’s good? I sent him a message today, seeing what his plans were for the weekend and am trying to see if we can make plans for it or if he wants to hang out next week. Hopefully things will now go more smoothly and we can actually progress here.

The one thing that set me off a little, and maybe this is just a guy thing, was how he reacted when I told him about feeling bad for one of my friends. I had mentioned that a friend of mine from the gym came to a party with me and that I was feeling bad for him because his girlfriend had dumped him via text on Christmas. MMM asked how long they were dating and I replied that I wasn’t really sure, but at least a few months. He shrugged it off and said that he should be fine and get over it and that someday he’ll grow up and learn. I didn’t really know what he meant by it and I didn’t want to dwell too much on it right then, so I just shrugged and changed the subject.

So yea- I was hoping by now we could have had the exclusivity chat and what not, but I feel like the month long absence ruined that for now. On the flip side, I honestly don’t think he’s seeing anyone else anyway- mostly because he just doesn’t have the time. I know where he works, and it’s an hour commute from his home each way. And with all the activities he does with his friends/coworkers, I can tell that he just doesn’t have time to fit in multiple women. Here’s hoping anyway. Maybe after a few more dates that are closer together we’ll be able to have the chat and be able to move the relationship along.

That’s all I’ve got for now.

  1. I was so happy when I saw this in my inbox today!! πŸ™‚ That’s awesome that you might get to be the next announcer at Fenway!! When do you find out?
    Your situation with MMM sounds EXACTLY like “Future Hubby” and I, only MMM actually has legitimate excuses – mine is just too drunk and in love with his guy friends. Haha. It doesn’t sound like he’s seeing anyone else either, he just seems like a really busy person!! I don’t think he would stick around this long if he wasn’t into you!! Guys get rid of girls pretty fast these days!! I have a good feeling about MMM though, I think it’s just gonna take an enormous amount of patience and understanding with him. What’s his sign?
    And I think you’re right about it being a guy thing with how he reacted at what you told him about your friend. I feel like guys play the whole “macho, tough guy” card a lot on issues such as that. Silly boys!!

    • Awww that’s how I always feel when I see you’ve updated, hahah!! And thanks! I’ll find out before the season starts, but I think I actually have a job at the park lined up through another group of people- I’m starting up a new blog for my baseball stuff (moving it from tumblr to wordpress) so I’ll make sure to get it to you and keep you updated!!

      And yes! It’s frustrating, but I think it’ll be okay. We’re tentatively planning something on Wednesday (our usual date day haha), so we’ll see. I just want something a little more steady, but you’re right- I think we’re fine for now.

      His birthday is at the end of July, soooo Leo? Yea, Leo. πŸ™‚ I’m a Gemini- please tell us we’ll be okay!! haha

      • Awww thanks!! Haha!! That’s awesome that you’ll have a job there either way!! Definitely send me the link once you’ve transitioned everything over. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t know much about baseball, but I’m hoping to learn by reading your blog!!

        I feel you on the wanting something steady. I think we not only deserve that, but it’s good to know what something is so you’re not always wondering. Going back to the whole over thinking things.

        So I went to my trusty site for sign matching, and apparently you two are a match made in heaven!! Here’s the link:

      • Ah! I love it!! *Fingers Crossed!* hahaha

  2. It’s good to hear from you, JC. I hope things go the way you want.

  3. I hope you get that! That would be great fun! ….on the guy. Sometimes I swear they smell the talk coming and they run the other way.
