Is it even possible anymore?
I have two friends that hooked me up with two different dates. The first date was a while back. He is six years older then me (a good age gap), retired from a good job, helps out a friend on construction jobs and also works with CBS holding cameras at various sporting events. We went out on a date at his cousin's restaurant, drank a few glasses of wine and had a nice time. I even met the cousin and got a free bottle of wine. We ended up chatting and talking for five and a half hours. I have not heard from him since the date.
I have another friend that has a brother that is three years older than me. He's been divorced (about two years) and has grown kids (23/25). My friend hooked me up with her brother on Wednesday night. I met her first at this place called Party In The Park. Hundreds of people of all ages meet at this area near the Ohio River. A live band plays and you simply talk and meet-up with friends. About 15 minutes after we met her husband comes up with the brother I was to meet. Well, the brother was okay looking and very quiet at first. He started to chat with me after his sister walked away with her husband. This was about an hour after we first met. He talked about his kids, my daughter and what we did for a living. We talked about our interests and more or less got to know each other. I thought we had a nice time. My friend came back about a half hour later with her husband. She started to talk to me and her brother joined in along with several of her friends who showed up. So, it was a good size group of about 8 people. We all stood around and chatted. Then it got late (9:30). We all had to work the next day. My friend said good-bye and gave me a big hug. Her husband shook my hand goodbye and the guy I was with just stood there and said 'It was nice meeting you." It was rather awkward for him not to want to walk me to my car as I was parked on the other side of the park. Then we all three walked our separate ways. I never heard back from my gal pal since Wednesday. I haven't heard back from her brother. Not sure what to think of what her brother thought of me. My guess - he's just not ready to date or wasn't interested in me that much. It kind of bothers me. My gal pal said her brother was willing to meet me and we had a nice chat. We even went off and got a pizza and some beer together. I would just like some feedback but I'm not quite sure what to think right now. I have not heard from her either.
Well, I'm left still wanting to date. I'm getting tired of being alone and finding things to do on Fri/Sat nights. It's a good thing I have one gal pal to turn to. We are headed out to the golf range and later on dinner at least for tonight. I hate the idea of not knowing what I did to get this guy not interested in me. Why did he agree to meet me then not going to follow-up with a call? I know it's only two days since we met, but it's Friday afterall. Perhaps he will call me tomorrow? We had a nice time and I felt very comfortable with him. He did seem kinda quiet and shy but then when his sister walked away he opened up.
I'm just so bummed.
What DO men want?
