The New M.E. Generation











Oh, no, the bar is the one that I’ve come across one of those past guys that resurfaced ages later when I thought I would never cross path with ever again. I don’t know why I felt somewhat nervous about going there because when I saw that guy I’m referring to, I was talking to another guy and I completely ignored him.

The other guy even waved at me and I did to him with a ‘blah’ face of ‘oh, it’s you,’ and kept talking to the guy I was with. On top of that, I was nicely dressed (which the guy let me know), and I think I handled it pretty well.

So what’s the big deal? It’s to my advantage that someone from my past sees me next to another guy. But I know I will still be somewhat nervous. I don’t want to pretend being someone I’m not or start acting as if Alex is my current significant other. I’m having a good time tonight and I just want it to continue that way.

We got to the bar and (thank goodness), there was no one there I knew (guys I mean). This made me feel at ease. We ordered drinks and toasted to a great evening (so far).

I was curious to know how I was fairing out tonight, but I was not going to make that mistake; getting somewhat lost was enough. So, instead, I asked him if he could expand on his other dating experiences.

“You wouldn’t believe the other women,” said he. “One was completely shallow. Halfway through the date I just wanted to end it. She even asked me if we could meet again and I gave her a sarcastic face of ‘yeah, I will call you.’

The worst one was this woman who was in my car. She was so wasted she opened the car window, started screaming while flashing her boobs. She didn’t lift the bra at least. But I was driving, totally freaking out, while pulling her back into the seat.

What about you? Any crazy stories?”

I couldn’t answer anything right away. Instead, I had to think really hard because all I could remember were mostly sad ones.

Crazy? Well, maybe the infamous 2:00am call from Erik (please see ‘The Swedish Massage’), or the time I drove to the fire station to find Bryan or when he came to pick me up to go the beach and had just saved his head (‘You Can Be My Hero’), or perhaps the ‘Pirate’ incident at the resort (‘A Spring Break in the Fall’).

Yeah, they were crazy in my own understanding, but not as bad as what this guy had gone through.

Some time later, the bar was getting ready to close, so we had to wrap up for the night. We looked at each other with a puzzled face of ‘are we seeing each other again?’ and ‘who is supposed to ask that question?’

Alex took the first step. “I had a great time and was wondering if you would like to meet again?”

“Yes, I would.” Finally, a second date! I don’t recall this happening before. Hopefully this will lead to something good. “Do you mind walking me to my car?” In other words, you are nice and I trust you enough to let you do that.
