"Nobody Likes a Braggart," As Crazy's Mommy Says, So Here's a Boy-Crazy Update

Yes, I had to get the "Professor of the Year" post off the top, even though I'm still really over the moon about the whole thing. And so, by way of doing so, I thought that I would update you all about what's going on as my eHarmony membership inches ever closer to expiring.

Well, what had been quite a ... lurching ... correspondence with the Greek, as I think the spaces between posts about him probably indicated to you all. However, since "Greek Easter," things have seemed to speed up considerably. We are emailing more regularly and - gasp - we actually spoke on the phone on Friday. It was a good conversation, and I really enjoyed talking to him, and he's kind of sarcastic (good) and funny (good) and also smart (good) and very down-to-earth seeming(very good). He's divorced - did I mention that before? - but no kids. Well, unless we count the Man-Puppy as a kid, which I don't because it's much more like a stuffed animal. At any rate, when we got off the phone on Friday, we discussed meeting, and I think that this is going to happen this weekend. And I think that we are going to go to the movies (how old fashioned, and yet, how awesome). Anyway, so that's that.

In other news, The Chemist is very sweet and is my friend, but he's almost too sweet even for just friendship with me. I'm so glad we never dated really - I think that I would have broken his heart. I'm a lot of good things - don't get me wrong - but I'm just not particularly "nice."

Yeah, and other than that there's a guy I'm kind of blowing off because, well, I'm tired. And also, in spite of myself, I'm a little bit excited about meeting the Greek and I want to let myself be excited about that without pursuing another e-relationship as a way of warding off disappointment. That's just too depressing, that whole thing.

So yes. Saturday with the Greek. It should be interesting....

You know, I wonder if the Chemist is being very sweet because he still thinks he has a shot. We menfolk are very good at denial.

I can't wait to hear about it! and what you say about the niceness of the chemist makes sense.

1. Don't think I haven't thought of that with the Chemist, Derrick. I'm just trying to be as straightforward and cool about it as possible. I really do like him, he's just not for me, you know?

2. Yes, I'm very excited to see what happens as well!
