How Quickly Things Change (Kris)

I think my posts have been a little confusing with the whole IG1 and IG2 thing. IG1 who is now called Traveler may not get a lot of airtime from here on out. IG2 I'm totally stumped on his alias. I'm liking him and wanting a really solid name, it's just not coming to me.

I went out with both of them over the weekend. Traveler was last minute. We had one nice date a few weeks ago, then he was out of town for a couple of weeks, then busy catching up on his work/life. I understand all of that and was OK with meeting for dinner last minute. I think he's a good guy, but conversation didn't really flow over dinner and, as I said, I found myself wishing I'd gone to the movies with my girlfriends especially since he had other things to get done that night so it was just dinner and I was heading home by 8:00.

Contrast that to IG2 who had planned such a fun date for Saturday night. It's so flattering to have someone put effort into an evening. Dinner then the symphony at Deer Valley complete with sparkling juice and European chocolates. On our previous two dates, I'd had fun with him but wondered if we were going to connect on a deeper level. We talked and talked all evening (probably much to the dismay of those around us at the concert). I was really impressed. I had no idea such emotionally healthy men existed. We ended the evening back at my place talking and "not talking" until the wee hours of the morning. It really was a great evening with a great guy. We discussed some of our dating histories and internet dating so my fears of being one of "The Batchelor" girls has been somewhat alleviated.

We've talked briefly the past two nights. (Yay for a guy who knows you call a girl the day after you kiss her.) We have plans this weekend. I just need to stay calm with no freaking out and I think it will all be OK. :)
