Date #20: “Dream Maker”

How We Met: So this was my very first date with someone I met online!  I met him on a dating website that I previously mentioned in my post I’m Priceless…Or Am I? called What’s Your Price.  I was completely apprehensive about the whole online dating thing to begin with, but I figured I’d give this a shot.  While browsing through my selection of men, there weren’t very many that were around my age (I gave myself the gap of 22-35(ish) just to be open).  Most of them were in their 40’s and 50’s and I’m already into younger men as it is, so that was most definitely not my type.  There are literally only a handful of men on that site who are my age.  So I came across “” and decided to “Wink” at him (to understand this whole process, you’ve gotta check out that website).  In turn, he offered me $55, which I accepted.  To be honest, I’ve decided not to deny anyone on that site unless they are married and/or have children….not my style.  Anyways, I didn’t think anything of it because I hadn’t been having luck with the site; I had a bunch of men offer me money, but no one had messaged me or responded to my messages (they have to pay to read a message/send one back).  But alas!  I found a guy who responded!!  He seemed cute based off his one picture, so we started talking and he gave me his number to text him.

Here’s where things got a little weird…as soon as we started texting each other, he began sending me a lot of text messages….quite especially a lot for someone I hadn’t even met yet.  Then he started sending me pictures of himself…no, not gross ones you pervs, just of himself.  Now, I know he had mentioned that he would send me some since he only had one picture up on his profile, but he sent me quite a bit…again, a lot more than I expected from someone I hadn’t met yet.  This started weirding me out.  In addition to this, his text messages were so strange and I was extremely off-put by this.  So I was really hoping something would happen and our dated wouldn’t happen, but it happened, much to my dismay.

The Date:  Like I said previously, I was completely apprehensive to go on this date – I honestly contemplated canceling many a times.  But I figured I had to do this for my blog…my writing comes first, apprehensions second.  So I went through with it.  And let me just say that this is probably one of the first times in the history of my blog that I am completely shocked at how a date went…

It was AMAZING!!  First off, I do want to preface what I’m about to say with the fact that I don’t want to actually date him.  BUT, I do really like him as a person, he’s my new favorite person, and we better hang out again or I may throw a fucking childish ass fit!!  We decided to meet at a restaurant bar between both our houses. Since this was my first online date, I decided to park kind of far from the restaurant just in case he turned out to be creepy, so he wouldn’t follow me home or anything, or know what I drive.  When I got to the bar, I found him immediately.  Luckily, he looked just like his profile and every other picture he sent me.  We began to talk and as we were talking, he kept fiddling around with other stuff and looking through his wallet, which I thought was kind of weird.  But then he handed me some cash, which was both weird and awesome at the same time, because this little lady is broke.  Anyways, we ordered a drink and talked about everything.  It was really nice to see how two people who had never met each other before had such a natural conversation flow.  He’s really into stocks and economics so we talked a lot about that.  It was interesting, because academia wise, you can tell this boy is not the brightest.  But when it comes to street smarts and things he’s passionate about, he’s extremely intelligent.  We also talked about religion, since we’re both Catholic.  He’s (to a certain extent) extremely religious to the point where he accepts the LGBT community, but finds it very strange and is still weirded out about it, where as I, love gays.  Like looooooove.  I’m thinking his extreme Catholic views may have to do with the fact that he’s Polish (like his parents are straight from Poland and he used to be able to speak the language) and I know a lot of Polish people are still extremely devout Catholics.  I also learned that he is not much of a partier and didn’t even really start drinking until he turned 21, which was really cool and respectable.  Considering everyone I hang out with is basically in some stage of alcoholism, it was refreshing to hang out with someone who isn’t.

After we had our one drink (I love this because I didn’t have to make up an excuse as to why I didn’t want to drink anymore) we were about to leave, but then I saw his car and fell in love.  He has a Nissan GT-R and while I didn’t know exactly what that was at the time, my eyes liked what it saw and I HAD to get a ride.  So he took me around the area, floored it, and scared the shit out of me a couple of times.  But it was so exhilarating I didn’t even care.  The car has 485 hp and goes SOOOO fast!!  It wasn’t so bad when we were doing 120 mph on the highway, but driving around the residential areas was terrifying – I was so scared!!  We also listened to a guy who he has invested in – this guy is a rapper from California.  Usually when people tell me someone sings or raps, I’m extremely judgmental, because anyone can say someone sings or raps – it takes true talent to make it sound good.  And I was extremely surprised when I heard this guy because he is GOOD.  Better than even some of the stuff on the radio right now.  We sat in his car, listened to music, and talked about music for a long while….at least an hour or so.  He told me what he plans to do with “his artist” (as he calls the guy) as far as exposure, shows, etc.  And honestly, based on what he said, he’s doing it in exactly the right way.  When it comes to getting what he wants and things he’s passionate about, “Dream Maker” really makes it happen, which is so awesome.  He understands the value of working hard and not just having everything handed to him on a platter (although from what I understood, he’s an only child and his parents are loaded).  He understands that sometimes in life you have to fail in order to succeed and take chances in things without being 100% positive on the outcome.  All in all, it was a wonderful date and I’m glad I spent my night with him.  =)

*Positives: He’s a hard worker, he knows what he wants and will take any measure to get there, he’s very sweet, total gentleman, actually paid (as was the agreement through Whats Your Price but I didn’t think he actually would), has a beautiful car, made sure I was happy the entire time, really fun to hang out with, is into music (I get to audition to sing the hook for “his artist”!!  woohoo!!), has really pretty eyes

*Negatives: He’s awkward when it comes to texting, he’s a bit awkward in general (but I find this more endearing than annoying), doesn’t really go out or drink or party much (this isn’t a bad thing by any means, but doesn’t fit with my lifestyle personally)

*Second Date?: Ya for sure!!  Though I hope the “second date” consists of recording at the studio.  Haha.
