My First Date with Lineman

Everybody knows the pressure of a first date: Searching for that perfect outfit. Hunting for ways to be engaging. Dissecting each detail when it's over to check for mistakes. Dating can make even the most confident person lose his cool.

Ah.  The Lineman.  When I read that was his occupation on his profile, I thought...football?  Looks hunky.  But most likely..not. 
Can you guess where we decided to meet?  Haha...the local bar.  And actually we had plans to go to The Nature and Science Museum the following day, but he wanted to meet me first.  

So of course he got there when I was with my girls, having my dramatic moment and laughing over the wine stealing event. 

His pictures online were kinda vague, so when this guy comes in, I whisper to L, "Could that be him?"  Yup.  

Holy cow he is CUTE!  He gets a drink and orders food.  I think we had planned on eating together, but food was not happening me for on this crap day.  So I watched him eat instead.  The conversation went well, actually it kept going.  Well is being nice.  Not the smartest guy in the world.  But so far, the cutest.  He was confident.  He talked about his job...working on power lines.  mmmm  intriguing.  ugh.  But he was nice, and I knew I would want to go out with him again.  

So we made plans to go the museum the next day.  There really isn't much more to say about him.  Just that he was cute.  He left early.  Saying he was tired.  And honestly, he seemed tired when he walked in.  I guess working on those power lines is hard work. 

Well the next day was just as crappy as the previous day for me.  So I sent him a text, and his first response (before I could tell him I couldn't go) was "I don't have enough money to pay for the both of us."  hmm.  Well no kidding, I wouldn't have enough money for the both of us either.  Its stupid expensive.  So I told him I couldn't go because of other reasons, but that I wouldn't expect him to pay for me.  I was just having a bad day, and would be bad company.  

Few days ago, I sent him a text.  No response. Ha.  There ya go.
