Single in Seattle: Blogger Boy No. 2, Continued

Maybe you already know. Maybe you used to know. Maybe you’ll know again soon. Whatever your perspective, this column looks to answer one question: what’s it like being single in Seattle?
Post #2 in a series starting here.

So, not cute at all. That’s the risk in online dating, I suppose. But what do I do? I hope it’s not him and bury my nose in my book, praying the not-cute guy doesn’t notice me. Five minutes go by, then ten, then fifteen. Nope, it’s definitely him.

Finally he approaches. “Uh, Chaya?”

I looked up as if totally surprised. “Oh hi, are you Blogger Boy No. 2?”

“Yeah, I am. Sorry, I’ve been sitting inside, I thought that was you but I thought it couldn’t be because you’re reading a book called Mergers & Acquisitions.” -10 points for not knowing Dana Vachon.

We awkwardly got food and headed over to the park. Then something happened. As we sat eating and drinking wine, we started laughing together, and it’s like I remembered why I was attracted to him in the first place. Not cute turned into cute.

He dropped me off at my house and we said a chaste goodbye.

And then the chatting continued. And continued. We talked non-stop, including well into the night. And one night the conversation turned a little, shall we say, racy. To put it mildly.

Caught up in the moment I furiously type, “I can’t wait until I’m in your arms!” Suddenly he became racked with guilt, or so it seemed. Suddenly he’s talking about my boyfriend, and suddenly he won’t touch me until the boyfriend’s gone (despite spending the last two hours talking about much more than just touching), and suddenly…suddenly.

So I broke up with my boyfriend. Of a year and a half.

(to be continued tomorrow…)

    maybe it’s just me, but i’m failing to see how this translates to seattle at large. so far, it just seems like you need a livejournal.

    Also, does the other half of this saga know that you are writing these? Otherwise, this seems like an incredibly mean thing to do, considering that it wouldn’t be difficult to figure it out.

    Agreed. Seattle is a pretty small town and google is powerful. Hello, awkward unintended public revelations.
