"God, is this a hint?"

I had a date last night.

We met online and have been chatting for a few weeks. Nice dude. Cute. 35. North Dakota native. Server at a nice restaurant. Just moved back from Chicago. Runs a lot. Found out he's a recovering alcoholic.

What is up with me and meeting guys who don't/can't party anymore?! This is my third one so far (in 1.5 years). It's not a big deal, but rather ironic, since my friends and I still party all weekend. Hmmm....

Anyway. I picked him up at his apartment in the area of Minneapolis known as Uptown. This is known for being the area that single twentysomething live in. The hipsters, artists and goth people like it, as well as the young professionals.

Anyway...he called me at work and the plans were very last-minute. So, he had already eaten and I was starving, but we agreed to go to Old Chicago anyway so I could eat. I thought he might get a beer, but he just wanted water. The conversation was good - no awkward moments. We talked about Chicago most of the time, since both of us use to live there (although I was only there for 4 months as an intern). But, it's always good to have a conversational date instead of staring at each other the whole time wondering what question to ask next.

Then we got back in the ol' Caddie and I asked if he wanted to go grab a drink or maybe get a movie. He opted for the movie, so we went to the "gay Blockbuster." It's a Blockbuster that has a lot of the independent films about gay we call it the gay Blockbuster. Anyway, it was here that I told him I go to movies quite often with my recovering addiction friend (b/c he doesn't go out anymore) and he said, "Yeah...I am too...I quit drinking 6 months ago." We didn't find anything to rent, so decided to just watch something at my place.

He chose "All Over the Guy," which is a few years old, but really funny. You should check it out. We watched it and chuckled quite a bit. We started to sit closer at the end, but never actually touched. I'm a big chicken when it comes to the first move.

So, the movie finished and it was about midnight and I offered to drive him home. Upon arriving, we hugged and agreed to hang out again - we both said we wanted to later this week.

We'll see...Oh, and what should we call him? How about New Guy? I'll name him later. If he turns out to be nameworthy.

A nerdy gay guy is set up on a blind date with a jocky gay guy by his good straight friend. The jocky gay guy's fag hag likes the nerdy gay guy's straight friend. Got it? Actually, it's pretty simple. It's the story of two men meeting, dating, running into problems and dealing with it. Alongside their story, their respective guy and girl friends, also meet and date. In between, they all discuss issues of love, life, relationships and their futures together. Love this gaymedy.

Richard Ruccolo plays hot Tom. LOVE him. Richard, if you're out there, call me!


  • Yay Kiddo! You so deserve a nice, cute, Midwestern, athletic-type. As long as he's not an anti-drinking activist, you'll be fine.

    As for a name, go for a pseudonym that reveals who he looks like or at a minimum, slightly resembles...I'm a visual kinda gal...I can't help it...

  • As long as he doesn't have a problem with you partying, it's all good. Although he just started the sobriety thing, so it may be difficult.

    Start naming the dates after movie characters. I'm using the porn name thing--it's kind of fun.

  • I love that movie. Sounds like it was an enjoyable date. It's always fun having the anticipation of the next date and the possibility of "sitting closer". : )
