Well, crap

It's not bad news. It's good news. It's terrifying news.

One of the PoF guys I've been emailing GAVE ME HIS PHONE NUMBER. He said if I was interested, I should text or call him.

Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap.

I LOVE IT when the guy gives me his phone number. That also mean the ball is in my court and I've NEVER been good at basketball.

Do I dribble? Fake a pass and go for the 3 point shot? Hope and pray the coach pulls me out so I don't have to decide? OK, enough of the basketball analogy. What causes me such anxiety is figuring out when to call . . . or text. Is texting now the pre-flirt norm before phone flirting? How can I get across that I'm witty and intelligent and flirty in a text? Is there a flirt font?


Here's some basic info on who I will call New York Guy (NY guy for short). He's 5' 9", a Gemini and grew up in NYC. He moved to the midwest about 6 months ago and works in sales. His picture is adorable. I'm probably going to send him a text tomorrow night. Then he'll have my phone number and the ball will be officially in his court. I hope he plays basketball.

On the eharmony front, I got sent a set of "questions" from one of my matches. That's how eharmony works. I answered the 5 multiple choice questions and sent him the 5 I've chosen. If he likes my responses (Oh, the PRESSURE) he'll answer the questions I sent, then we move to the next level. I don't know what that level is, because I have not gotten there yet.

I did get a couple of other emails on PoF, but they were awkward - I'm pretty sure that at least one of them was from a chat-bot and the other quite possibly just looking for sex. I deleted them both. I'm trying to be open minded, but have to draw the line somewhere.

Oh, I just had a thought . . . What if NY guy is a JETS fan??? What if he hates football??

  1. TEXT HIM!!! You can be witty via text, he'll get it! It's so much better than a phone call because you have time to think about and edit what you're going to say next. AND the ball will he in his court! Good Luck!
