You may remember my rant back in August about my matchmaking friends. Well, today my very good friend who also happens to be on the top of the list of matchmaking busybodies was talking to me about her new Operations Manager. Evidently he’s in my age range, is single, and is looking to date someone. I met him on Saturday and thought he was attractive, but didn’t really think anything about it. So, she asked me if I thought he was attractive. Without even thinking about it, I said yes. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Usually, I won’t answer her or I’ll say no. Needless to say, she was doing the happy dance when I dropped her off at work and was threatening to give him my phone number.
Here’s the thing ~ I don’t date. Ever. I’ve never been good with the whole private getting to know you kind of thing. I much prefer a group setting and getting to know someone that way. Then I know enough about the person as to whether I want to go on a date with him or not. I’m not a casual dater. Never have been. Never will. Anyway, there’s been a lot of deep, calming breathing going on since I got home. I’m starting to feel better now.
The job at Barnes & Noble sounds promising. I dropped off my application and resume today. I was pretty much told I’d be called in when they start training the seasonal staff and from there I’m hoping to stay on part-time at the very least on a fill-in basis. PS ~ If I get the job, friends and family can pretty much count on books for Christmas.
