This is amazing. His initials are MM and I think he’s originally from the Quad cities but I’m not positive. SUCH A SMALL WORLD.August 17, 2015 at 11:06 pm #372340
He did take you to one of the better restaurants and bars in q-town. Kudos to him!!!! FYI, if you’re a Bloody Mary fan, Kelly’s is the best (same restaurant group as the Abby). Their cheese soup is to die for as well. And finally, I love The Tower for pizza, specifically the veggie. Oh, it’s a thing in Quincy to eat pizza and order a Margarita. Weird, I know. But the two best pizza places also serve Mexican.August 18, 2015 at 8:28 am #372362
oh Girl, margaritas are my favorite beverage so they go with anything.
What’s the latest on your fella ktfran?August 18, 2015 at 9:04 am #372365KGuest
@hfantods, no, I’m in NY. But I love waterfalls, and hikes 🙂August 18, 2015 at 9:24 am #372370kareGuest
I don’t have any exciting date plans yet. I might do stuff with my family tonight since it’s my parents 37th wedding anniversary. And tomorrow is the 3 year anniversary of when I adopted my cat (cattiversary?).August 18, 2015 at 9:25 am #372371
It’s really good, Ver! Date tomorrow night. He mentioned last week while we were texting that he wanted to spend more time together. He’s really, really sweet. We haven’t been on a date since last Monday, but that’s because of schedules/being out of town.August 18, 2015 at 10:07 am #372376
Oh that’s sweet ktfran! When is the next date?
Mine is the 29th. 🙁 But he’s gonna come here and we’ll make a day of it.August 18, 2015 at 10:39 am #372378hfantodsParticipant
@K, ah, gotcha. Agreed 🙂
Did he end up meeting your friends, ktfran?
Tinder Finance Guy suggested a cooking/baking session at his place and he offered to make the cooking part (I had mentioned I liked baking before). I’m interested and told him same, except I am going to the cottage this weekend (finally made friends with people who have cottages! [it’s kind of a Canadian thing]). I also had made plans to go to Ottawa the following weekend to visit friends/the city. So I’m looking at the weekend a few weeks from now and that seems far off? It would be three weeks from our second date. Should I maybe plan something in between if I am interested?
I probably am sabotaging my relationship life by planning trips and stuff. Like I do want to go to Otttawa but does it have to be now? I’m driving so it is flexible. Of course there’s work stuff too.
Have a second date at Second City (Toronto) with OKC guy tonight.August 18, 2015 at 11:41 am #372391LianneParticipant
I wouldn’t change your plans around for a guy you just started dating @hfantods. If it doesn’t work out, you will be kicking yourself. Is it possible to do a date during the week?August 18, 2015 at 1:07 pm #372418
Ver – the next date is tomorrow. We’ve done pretty good at seeing each other once to twice a week. Last week was the first that didn’t happen because of busy schedules. I’m not inviting him to the friend meet because 1. we all might cancel and 2. we have a date tomorrow.
The 29th is great, Ver, considering you live a couple hours apart!
Def do not change plans hfan. Maybe try to plan something easier during the week and do the cooking/baking thing a few weeks from now. That’s what I would do in your situation anyway.
Also, I can’t stress enough how important it is to keep your own social life… i don’t think you should not makes plans in the hopes of some guy asking you out. It just makes you miserable.August 18, 2015 at 1:15 pm #372420hfantodsParticipant
Yeah you are all very logical. I like my life hanging out with friends and even by myself; I don’t want to lose that.August 18, 2015 at 1:26 pm #372421
