Are You Friggin' Kidding Me?

One Bostonian's Misadventures in Dating

Long overdue post about all the smiling going on


First of all, it’s my birthday today so I’m in an extra cheerful mood. I’ve had a great birthday weekend so far (most of which will be listed on my other blog since it’s mostly regarding things happening with the Red Sox and me) and today will be a good day, too.

So I had a date with Mini Marky Mark, maybe 2 weeks ago? We went out for frozen yogurt and then went back to my place for a bit. Same old, same old. I always have a good time with him- just wish that we’d actually make a move to try to be more serious. However, I can’t force him to do that, so I’ll just enjoy the time that we do spend together and not pine too much over him. He’s a good guy, but probably not THE guy, so it’s alright.

However, I’ve been spending so much more time with Baby Bender. Mostly we just get together to go to bars or parties. This weekend, he came out for my birthday and brought his older (married) brother with him since he was visiting for the long weekend. I had a great time with BB and getting to know his brother. They had plans to go to the Red Sox game the next day (yesterday, Memorial Day), since they’re Phillies fans (who were the visiting team). Neither had been to Fenway so they asked me what they should do for the day. I suggested that they do the tour of the park and get lunch/dinner at one of the bars around the field. They called me up yesterday afternoon and had me join them for dinner and I shared more information on the park. Even better, they got to cheer for me since I was part of the Memorial Day ceremony on the field during the pre-game events, which was kind of fun. 

So spending all this time with BB makes me super sad to announce that he’s LEAVING Boston in a month. He dropped the bomb on me that he’s going back to get his master’s in the fall, but will be moving back home for the rest of the summer beforehand. I’m so bummed, it’s not even funny. He assures me that he’s coming back to Boston in the spring, once he’s done with school. I’m hoping he does, if for nothing else just to have my awesome party partner back. However, I absolutely adore him and now that I’ve got in good with his brother, I just want to keep him to myself. I guess we’ll see where that goes. 

Otherwise- there’s nothing on the dating front right now. I have reactivated my OKCupid account to no avail. There are some guys I work with that are attractive and would be worth a shot, I’m sure, but I’m so awkward about flirting that I don’t know what to do.
