...i saved this one for after April Fool's Day...

by jen x at 08:12 PM on April 03, 2005

I haven't been around much, and for that I'm sorry.

But I've had a pretty good reason.

See, I've finally managed to fool someone into liking me and dating me -- even to the point of tricking him into calling himself my boyfriend and me his girlfriend.

He seems to think that I'm cute (since he tells me this several dozen times a day), that I'm smart, that he likes me (another one he tells me fairly regularly), that I'm hot, and he seems to enjoy my company.

Go figure, huh?

We met through lavalife (yeah, shut up, I feel the same way), but I've discovered that he has ties to people in my world -- the biggest being that he went through paramedic school with a guy I went to high school with.

Oh yeah - he's a paramedic. Pretty cool, especially to a government grunt like myself.

So anyhow, our first coffee meeting -- and the date we're using as our 'anniversary' -- was January 21st, and we've had a number of successful dates (obviously) since. Towards the middle of March, I finally asked him if he was boyfriend, and he said yes. Crazy idiot.

He teases me, he picks on me, he cuddles me, he kisses me, he *teases* me, he cares about me. Life is pretty good.

Now if only my work situation would improve (or if I could get the new job I'm interviewing for next week), I'd be better set.

I'm surprised this hasn't happened sooner. So, does he do it all?

And does he have a brother?

God I want sex with you.

Are they lurkers? Those dude/ettes who post the one-liners like the one above this comment? In six words you can see that whoever it is, is a sad and lonely entity in calamitous need of some companionship and... Sex, apparently. Itís really deplorable, and, uh, aggravating, to have to see them venting here. Damn shame I say.

But Go Jen X... Long may the teasing continue! :)

It's an interesting point. Like construction workers who wolf whistle at girls they dig, just to ensure that on the off chance they might actually have a shot with her, they won't.

Yay! This is good news! Don't worry about Lavalife. A bunch of my friends have used online dating services, and myself, too. Actually, one of my friends has gotten two long-term relationships out of Yahoo, and I even liked both of the S.O.s :-O Good luck on your interview!

Nothing wrong with online dating services. But is Lavalife a good name to choose? For me it conjures up images of hot goo oozing out of a big hole. Oops.

Eh, there are some things that are worth the wait. Of course, two years of raised and dashed hopes meant that I do spend some time wondering when the other shoe will drop, but even that is dissipating.

He does it for me... still some stuff that needs to be worked out, but that's what long-term relationships are for. :)

And no, no brother - but he does have an older sister...

Finally, Brandon - I'll put you on the list of random internet people who've expressed the same opinion as you. If things don't work out with me and this boy... you stay by your phone, y'hear?

Hmm... sounding very Linzesque these posts...

Well, back when she first got her boy, she had decreed that it was up to me to carry the torch...

Of course, I think I was supposed to be posting about my dating (mis-)adventures. But since most of those were, "Had coffee with a nice boy. We never spoke again.", I figured it wouldn't be particularly exciting.
