POP is not writing back. My strategy at this point will be to wait a week or so, and then be really bold and email him along the lines of: Look, you're looking for these things. I'm great. Take a chance. What do I really have to lose at this point? I've tried that strategy twice before--once it worked, and once it didn't.
But in the meantime, I think Big Smile might be on the list for a while longer. We had a lovely date last night! He's hotter than his pics--that's always a pleasant surprise. In his profile and pics, he comes across as a cute, goofy, dorky, sweet kind of guy. In person, he's not so dorky, not so goofy. We seem to have some key things in common, and we enjoyed each others' company. I've gotten so much better since I started this whole "Dating again" thing at body language. There wasn't a kiss goodnight, but he seems to be--like me--someone who takes it a bit slow. He said he would call, and he seems to be a guy who'll actually call. So let's hope to see Big Smile again :)
Friday's Car Guy, and Sunday's Forgettable. I realized that before last night, I had been on only one Jdate in over a month. Catching up!
