If all goes according to plan, I’ll be on my way to Beau Monde with Date #7 this time next week. He doesn’t know it yet, but the berry and nutella crepe from Beau Monde is my all-time-favorite non-school day breakfast. (After Jiffy Blueberry Pancakes with artificial blueberries, of course.)
Granted, my egregious taste in pancakes is not the real issue here. The real issue is the fact that the man from across the state is coming to visit and for the first time since we met back in June, he’ll actually be at liberty to…
He won’t have to worry about…
Well folks, he’ll be single.
That’s right: single.
Did I fail to mention that he’d been seeing someone else?
I tend to ignore the important details when they’re not to my liking.
Besides, I knew he was dating—he freakin’ pocket called me when he was out with another woman! I just didn’t know he was dating dating (as in seeing one particular person for an extended period of time).
But now he’s single. And now I know why he didn’t bother to cook me a proper meal when I came out to Pittsburgh in August: he wasn’t trying to woo me. He was just trying to get to know me.
In an ideal world, he’d have clued me in a little sooner (perhaps when I mustered the courage to tell him about the recent developments in my love life?) but nobody’s perfect—and everyone deserves a second chance, right?
(Of course, it will be his third, but you know what they say: third time’s a charm.)
