Meeting bloggers and a date

I had a busy weekend.

Saturday included paper writing, shopping, bagels, playing wii, dinner with Maris and Jess, and celebrating Lacey’s engagement with her friends including bloggers Chris and Arielle.

Sunday I had brunch with lucklys, Katie, Laura, Lacey, Arielle, and Jess. After brunch I met up with B for Date #2 and then I went home and finished my paper that was due at midnight.

But back to the date. I know that’s what you’re all interested in, haha.

B called Saturday afternoon to ask if I would be able to go out on Sunday. I told him I wasn’t sure since my weekend was so busy and I had to finish my paper, but I would try to make time. I sent him a text message Sunday after brunch saying I had a few hours before I needed to start working on my paper so we could meet up if he wasn’t busy. He said he wasn’t, so we decided to meet in Central Park.

We walked around for a while watching the rollerbladers, hulahoopers, and dancers. He bought me a water and he got a Snapple. After a while it started sprinkling so we decided to go back to his apartment and play wii.

This was my first time seeing his apartment and I was impressed. It’s a good size (at least for NYC standards), one bedroom, not messy, but not overly organized or obsessively cleaned.

We played wii for a couple hours. I beat him at baseball, he beat me at tennis, and we tied at bowling. When we got bored we decided to play Guitar Hero. I wasn’t that great since I hadn’t played in a couple months, but it was still fun.

But the most impressive part of the date? He offered to drive me home. With his own car. Do you know how unheard of that is in Manhattan?

He said he felt bad making me take the bus across town or having the transfer to 3 different subway lines, so it would be easier for him to just drive me home.

So, the good things about B: He’s polite, funny, smart, and fun to be around. He has his own apartment, a wii, guitar hero, and a car.

Even though I’m not completely sure how much I like him, there are no bad signs. So far everything looks perfect. Yay!

p.s. My arms are so sore from playing wii all weekend. 😦

  1. Sounds like so much fun! I wish I lived in Chicago or NYC just so I could hang out with bloggers. I’m not sure if there are many bloggers in my area.

    My only blogger friends are bloggers with diabetes. Which is cool, but most are a lot older than me. I would love to meet other twentysomething bloggers in NYC. I live in Hoboken, so I’m not too far. I don’t want to impose on your blogger group, but if you ever have an open invitation brunch, I would love to meet some of you ladies.
