I am smiling sooo much right now! 😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬
I literally have a permanent smile plastered on my face. Soooo yesterday with Jake was great! *plays Tpain song I’m Sprung*!
I am going to share everything but let me tell you about what happened the first time around…
So I first met Jake at my friend’s birthday dinner last year. Our mutual friend was trying to play matchmaker and set us up. He’s cute but he gave off that player vibe so I wasn’t hyped about getting to know him. We exchanged numbers that night but he never called me and I was definitely not going to call him. It was the end of March and he shoots me a text.
That text pisses me off so much. Anyways I am petty as hell. I know it’s Jake but I text back.
He calls my phone within seconds. I guess I must have bruised his ego, like how dare I forget him lol. We spoke for a bit and he said we should both go to dinner together. I remember the first date not being very memorable. He was occasionally texting and that irked me. We had a few things in common so that helped with the conversation. But I don’t like first dates that have me confined to a formal restaurant setting. I would much prefer doing something fun than trying to make small chit-chat.
So with that said I must have fucked up on the second date. At the time I had just taken up hiking as a hobby. I found a group of hikers in my area on the meetup app. They did mostly beginner trails and occasional some intermediate trails. So on this specific Saturday they were doing a beginner trail and I invited Jake to come with me. Now the temperature is still cold, and he must have misinterpreted what I said when I invited him. He comes in sweat pants and a hoodie with a water bottle. While I’m in thermal wear with my bag pack ready to hike. He was a little pissy when he realized we were hiking with a group of people and it was 8am in the morning. I totally can understand if someone is not a morning person and everyone around you is in a cheerful mood. I would be ticked off too. I had packed a few water bottles and Gatorade and maybe two granola bars. You know when I think about it I am the one to blame for the total lack of romance lol. But I thought he would appreciate the scenery. The hike lasted from 8am-1pm to go back and forth. We walked all the way to this waterfall that was really beautiful. If it wasn’t chilly I would have totally gone skinny dipping. I was really trying to take him out of his slump so he would just enjoy himself. But he was so pissed! Even after the trail ended. I recommended that we go to TGIF for lunch and he straight shut that down. I know he told me some bullshit excuse to go home. I texted him that night to find out if he was okay and he didn’t reply. My friend calls my phone laughing her ass off. She couldn’t believe I planned the worse date in history. Jake told her I was high-maintenance and not his type. That he got up early to have a date with a bunch of strangers and he was suffering from bug bites. I felt sooo bad that I started to laugh. But I am far from high-maintenance so the fact that he was just going to ignore me, now that shit pissed me off.
So maybe a week later, we met up at brunch with a few friends. I initially said I was going to swallow my pride and just apologize for the sucky date and ask for a re-do. But Jake had brought a girl to brunch! So my pettiness was activated once again because I instantly had amnesia and did not know Jake. I knew this ticked him off. After brunch he approached me at my car and we tried to hash out our issues and it was just an argument. We realized we both wanted different things and decided we should just try and be friends.
It’s a miracle that being friends worked out because I thought we were complete polar opposites but in reality we are like two peas in a pod. The only area in which we have different opinions on things was our love life. He was a man-whore and I was the hopeless romantic.
I can tell you, it is going to be extremely interesting to see where our relationship goes from here on…
