    Sigh...another blind date failure..

    Alright, I've been in this dating game now (since my divorce) for about a year, and some nights I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVER IT!

    My buddy hooks me up with a friend of his, beautiful girl...absolutely beautiful. However, it's yet another blind date.

    So to break the ice a little a couple friends join us for dinner. Well, I should have learned by now that this is NEVER a good idea. For some reason or another I always end up feeling like the date is paying more attention to the other guests than she is me. Maybe it was just in my head (not that I crave attention) but when I'd ask a question and she'd answer looking at one of our guests and not me, I kinda started getting the hint.

    Sigh... Just need to vent. Its weird how I put soooooooo much energy into training hard, eating right, taking care of myself, etc - yet I seem to walk around with the self esteem of someone who's overweight, pale, boring, etc. Like a constant battle forcing myself to believe I'm not that guy....

    The worse is of course when tmrw comes if I find out she did have a good time and liked hangin with me - I'll feel on top of the world. I hate being so shallow....

    Maybe she's shy right now and it's hard for her to make eye contact.

    Don't be so hard on yourself bro!

    Slyp, relax bro! I had a blind date with one of my buddies sister and there was him and his wife, our other buddy and his wife , and me and her. Dinner was terrible, the food sucked the royal Ass! and then he and his wife start fighting at dinner. Full on F-You's! So, I start drinking more beer because I'm about to have a f'n heart attack. I wanted it to be good, but it wasn't going that way. So someone comes up with the idea we all go bowling...well, we go and we barely talk she's very stand offish. I'm a very outgoint hyper assed ADHD MF'er! and I'm just like wtf! I suck sooooo bad...well, I tell her let's go get a beer, so we walk up to the bar and I just said hey, let's just go out to dinner you and I so we have a better chance to get aquanted. etc...

    Well, we got married on the 4th of July bro (after 3 years of going together)... from what she says, she was very put off by me because she was shy and I was "Hot!" ; ) Just relax call her say hey lets go out and talk and kick around....you never know bro! Don't stress!
