Oh the joys of single life....dating update

Tuesday, 17 June 2014

I am now back on British soil and trying to get back into the London routine. 

I got back on Sunday morning and despite my mum suggesting about 5 times that I have a "little sleep" I was determined to stay up until bedtime so that I could rearrange my body clock!

Twice my eyes drooped and once when I was catching up on Game of Thrones so you can tell how tired I was. Anyway, I managed to stay up until 9pm and wake up at 7am to get to work early so I think my body clock is fixed. I went out to a salsa club last night though and didn't go to bed until about 12.30 so I'm still pretty tired!

I still need to do a blog post on my salsa story. I will soon, I just want to do it justice because I love it so much!

Anyway I promised you a dating update in my last blog. So last time I did one of these I was going on dates with two people, Rugby Aladdin and my Malteser...

Does anyone else make up nicknames for men? At my office we are mostly girls (apart from three boys) so we are all really good friends and talk about life to each other whilst at our desks. I sit on The Island (a very exclusive island of desks!) with four other girls and it is hard to keep up with who we are talking about. Therefore nicknames just makes sense. It is much easier to say "oh Voldemort texted me yesterday" rather than saying James texted me and everyone having to remember which one James is....not that I have loads of men on the go!

Here are some of the nicknames I have. People who know me personally, see if you can work out who is who! Just a note, Voldemort's real name is not James!

Voldemort (he who must not be named!)
The Fireman
Rugby Aladdin
Fate Man
My Malteser
Wanker Banker

I think I might expand on Fate Man today because I think it is a typical dating drama which most girls have been through in one way or another...after that you can have an update on current dating life!

So Fate Man and I met at school and used to have a bit of a thing. We stopped seeing each other because I text him saying I didn't want to be monogamous (doesn't sound like me at all now!) and apparently he didn't know what monogamous meant so he didn't ever reply! In the past couple of years I've thought about him a few times whenever I've seen him pop up on facebook. He is pretty attractive and just my type so it's not really a surprise that I think about him when he pops up! We hadn't had contact for about 6 years and when I became suddenly single a few months ago I messaged him. I assumed he lived in London and I had nothing to lose! It turned out he was moving to London that weekend and he had thought of me that week too. Fate... Then about two days later I ran into him in Victoria station. Fate! Hence the name Fate Man. We decided to go for a drink and ended up spending hours together, I saw him again on another day and I thought we got on pretty well. Only issue was he smoked (ew) and he was a bit too cool for me. He likes the Shoreditch scene which isn't really me. Anyway...being bluntly honest...I said that I didn't want to take things too far, if you know what I mean, because I said I wouldn't hear from him again afterwards. He promised that this wouldn't be the case...of course he did. I think you can tell where this story is going. I'm still waiting to hear back about our next date...and this is 7 weeks later. I'm not particularly bothered to be honest. I know he isn't "The One" - a nickname I am yet to give out, so it doesn't bother me. But I do find it odd that men behave like that. I swear every girl I've ever met has had the same situation too. Maybe girls do that too, but I never have. There are definitely different rules for boys and girls. Maybe it's the way we are wired - who knows!

Now for a current update. Last time I mentioned My Malteser we had been on a date the night before I flew to Florida. Unfortunately he is now away for 10 days. Hopefully I will see him on his return next week.

With regard to Rugby Aladdin I think he has too much "rugby banter" which I find really hard work so I don't think I'm going to see him again. 

And so the single life continues...

P.S. I cannot tell you how much easier it is to do this on a computer than my IPAD. The number of spelling mistakes I have in my Florida posts is just embarrassing! I must go back and sort that out!
