I don’t yet have a date invitation for New Year’s Eve. I’m in that dilemma some high school girls talk about where the prom is coming up and there are several possibilities. She really wants to be asked by her top guy, but she may be asked by the beta guy. If the beta guy asks first, what to do? Or what if the alpha guy doesn’t ask?
Here’s the adult (?) version.
- I’ve had three dates with a charming, fun, retired police chief of a small — but internationally known — nearby city. We had a fun dinner and movie date Sat. night and talk to each other every day or so. I’m kinda thinking he’ll ask, but so far no invitation.
- Last week I had a coffee date with a fun, smart product manager at a well-known Internet company. We laughed and had an interesting conversation. We’re having lunch today. He’d be my second choice, but we barely know each other.
- And then there’s Bruce — sort of. Perhaps he would get on a plane so we could actually meet. We talk several times a week. So Bruce, when is it going to happen? New Year’s Eve? I’m not laying bets.
I asked my teenaged nieces what they would do if in a similar situation for the prom. They said if Internet Guy asks first, I should either accept his invitation or call The Chief before lunch and ask him.
I don’t like those options. I think I’ll just wait and see what happens and play it by ear. In fact, none of these guys may ask, so I may hang out with friends or be alone with some favorite DVDs or a book!
