I have so much to report. My travels to Vegas did not disappoint! And omg, SO much has happened SINCE Vegas! But I need to fill you in because it’s all part of where I am now. So let’s rewind for a bit to the day I flew to Vegas…that would be 4 weeks ago yesterday.
I drove to a nearby city to catch my flight. Before I even get to the airport, I excitedly log onto to my Tinder account to find a whole new crop of men to swipe. I love that Tinder only gives you a 100 mile radius. It makes me excited to travel elsewhere and see what shows up when I get out of my normal local range.
The first man that pops up is good looking in a clean-cut kinda way, with a great warm smile, tall lanky body type. Let’s call him, Mr. Professor. The adventure with Mr. Professor started over an IPA at the airport as I waited for my first flight to Vegas.
I chat him up after I get the go ahead from Tinder that we are a Match! He chats me up right back and pursue a back and forth rapport quite quickly. He is smart, quick and witty not to mention a great sense of humor…on text. ;o) He asks me about where he might find a good place to grab an IPA…then I mention I am just traveling through town on my way to Vegas. Odd enough he was in my town the day before and thinks that’s where he must have “picked me up.” Love it! Interesting synchronicity! I had logged onto my account the night he was here, but he would have been out of range by then. I am in his range the next day, so he shows up on my radar as a match! Too funny. More on Mr. Prof in a moment…
Mr. Spirituality – So my layover just happens to be in the same state as spiritual match. It’s so crazy to think that we are so close, but so far away. I had been thinking about him a lot after he sent me another sweet and tender email…full of depth and richness that fills my heart and soul. I can tell this guy has so much to give and he so deserves BIG love…from what I know of him! I can tell we are both heart centered individuals so much so that I can tell our vibrations do mesh even from a distance. It’s just a bummer that I can’t picture myself with a guy smaller than me. I appreciate his attention though and I want to give him the respect he deserves. It would be super awesome to meet him one day and I secretly fantasized about getting stuck at the airport and sneaking a visit in. Unfortunately, my layover led me to more Tinder matches from the area and even real people connections at the airport gate.
Mr. Coincidence – SUPER interesting connection with a younger guy who happened to be waiting for the same flight to Vegas from my layover city. He actually started conversing with the guy next to me. As I Tindered my time away I happened to pick up on part of their conversation. For some reason I ended up learning that he was from my home state originally and had relocated to Las Vegas and was currently living and working there. BUT it turns out that his cousins still lived in my hometown and started to rattle off their names. It turned out that his one cousin and I went to elementary school together! I told him how this guy obviously had a school grade crush on me back in the day because he would trade me his super awesome markers for my artwork. What a trip down memory lane! THEN, the other cousin happened to be a Facebook friend of mine! He was a guy I never met but had accepted his friend request a while back. We had photo friends in common so I added him. I think we may have chatted back and forth at some point, but that was about it. And the CRAZY twist on that is my friend in town who is on OKC had met him fairly recently and told me all about their amazing hook-ups! WHAT a small world! It boggles my mind! Once Mr. Coincidence and I established our interesting connections he seemed to get a little more friendlier with me. He sat down next to me and started being more flirty. He asked how long I was in Vegas and we friended each other on Facebook. We even exchanged numbers thinking we might be able to meet up one night when I was there. However, I sent him a text as I was getting off the plane in Vegas to see how he was getting home and he never replied back. No biggie. I was simultaneously chatting up a guy near my layover area.
Mr. Outside the Box – Matched with a cute guy on Tinder with a diverse amount of pics that showed a flavorful and adventurous lifestyle. I loved what he had to share about his international travel aspirations as well his happy disposition and good vibe nature. It was slow going as I was a little preoccupied with the guy sitting next to me, Mr. Coincidence. Mr. Coincidence was cute, but not really my type so I didn’t feel that committed to our conversation. I kind of derailed our conversation by getting in my section line before boarding. He was in a different section so I had some more time on my phone before I had to go on airplane mode. So Mr. Outside the Box and I converse about traveling and some other small talk. Then he throws me for a loop and tells me his is married. I was like, ok, interesting. It turns out that he is 85% happy in his marriage but is seeking some other things that he is not getting out of his marriage….and it wasn’t all about S-E-X. He intrigued me, but ultimately, he couldn’t keep my attention for long.
Mr. Rebound – I posted a new profile pic to my Facebook and shortly after, this guy sends me a private message with, “very pretty.” I honestly had to look at his profile pic to see who he was! I didn’t recognize the name. Then when I figured it out, I was like, “what what?!?” I had a crush on this dude back in February. At the time, I put myself out there and tried to talk to him at a bar where we had gathered with some mutual friends, but he seemed disinterested. When I friended him back in February after that gathering, I tried to check him out and it appeared he had a girlfriend, but it was hard to tell. He definitely had a kid, but I couldn’t tell much else. I find him to be totally my type and very attractive, so I wrote back and said thanks for the compliment. Since he knew I was traveling, he said we should get together once I got back to town. I ended up giving him my number and not too much time passes before he sends a text. We chit chat for a bit but then I focused on being poolside in Vegas and that was the end of that. He did hit me up once I got back into town, but we are still two hours apart, so nothing has happened so far.
Mr. Cockadoo – Another Tinder find. I swear, the men on Tinder while in Vegas must just say yes to everything that crosses their path to see if they can get a hook up because every hot guy I swiped right on was a match! I would do that in my home town and most were never a match. Go figure. So this guy was interesting. I ended up chatting back and forth and attempted to get together but our schedules just wouldn’t jive. His chatter was pretty sexual, I could tell he was just looking for play. We did exchange numbers however and he would text each day. On the last night there he asks me if I want to see him. I’m like in person or a pic? Because I knew at this point, it wasn’t going to happen in person. I told him I was leaving in the morning so I was like, ok, send me a pic. So I’m sitting with a group of friends and all of a sudden I see this massive hard cock shot on my phone screen. Wowsers! And then he sends a completely different one! Clearly he has these on file ready to spring on his next prospect. The sad thing is, I never sent him anything back nor did I intend to and the guy even tried to see if I was still in town the next morning as I was checking in for my flight. Oy vey!
Mr. Comedy – This guy needs to get laid. I have no idea why he keeps texting me. Sure, we had a great connection, enjoyed our time together and even made out before I said good-night, but surely he could find something closer to home. He really wanted to attempt another get-together. I’m flattered, but I had way too much going on to reach that far away for some TLC. Besides, I think we are looking for two totally different things. I’ll keep him as a fond memory though!
Mr. Feminist – He hits me up while I was in Vegas and thought he might be in my town the weekend after I got back. It was cool to hear from him. I think he is just a little slow to go though. Perhaps he has a constant rotation of ladies himself? Nice enough guy, but I was looking forward to meeting Mr. Professor in all honesty.
Speaking of….let’s go back to Mr. Professor for a minute. So over the few days I was in Vegas, Mr. Professor and I were texting up a storm. We had our date set for the Tuesday after my flight back home on Monday. He was going to travel to see me and we were going to meet sooner than later. All promising signs. He was very appealing to me. I was feeling very hopeful about this one. I was really enjoying our connection and he felt grounded and real to me. Such a breath of fresh air. He even inspired a new Facebook profile pic from me.
When I feel good inside, it radiates in my photos. As soon as I posted that pic, it was as if the lurkers made themselves known. It always does a girls ego good to get 75 plus likes on your photo, but there was a “like” that kinda caught my eye and it was hard to look away. The crazy part, it was from a guy that I was not even “friends” with on Facebook. Which was surprising considering I pretty much have my Facebook on lock down. If you aren’t a friend, you see nothing but my profile and cover photo. I clicked on his profile and saw that our only mutual friend with Mr. Professor. Hmmm, interesting. At this point, I hadn’t met Mr. Professor yet and his friend was now liking my pics – the only two photos who could like without being my friend. Do I tell Mr. Professor? Nah, I decided to sit on it. The next day, this Facebook friend of Mr. Professor, let’s call him, Mr. Magnetic sends a friend request. Now, I’m really intrigued. I look at his profile again. Is he married? I see three younger kids, but no wife. I check his status and it tells me nothing. I dig through some more photos but it’s just not clear. Out of respect for Mr. Professor, I didn’t accept the request, but I didn’t dismiss it either. There was something about this man. His eyes, his darker complexion, his symmetrical face, his soft lips. He really drew me in. There was this intensity about him that I couldn’t really explain.
So out of curiosity, I ended up asking Mr. Professor what his deal was. Should I be worried? Does this make things awkward if I accept his request? Mr. Professor was rather forthcoming about it all. He told me that he was a married guy of three and they had attended grad school together. He thought he was a little weird and described an incident about his work that sounded a little shady. And he probably wanted to be my friend because he thought I was “HAWT”…in his humble opinion. LOL. Ok, I digested all that. Kinda felt annoyed by the married part considering he was liking my profile pic, but for some reason, I didn’t dismiss his request. I figured I would re-investigate once I met Mr. Professor and see what went on between the two of us once we met.
My date with Mr. Professor was very near, I wanted to see what this feel good feeling was all about!
