I don't want to speak too soon, but Mr. Jones could be off the market in a bit...

Wednesday, June 11, 2008
Be forewarned, this is a totally personal post. Other than knowing what's going on in my life, please do not expect a "take away".

I've been dating this really great guy for almost four weeks and I couldn't be more happy with him and the direction we're going in. I've mentioned him in detail to my dearest confidant and no one else because, to be honest, I've been here before and I have the egg on my face to prove it.

I've met/dated/fucked what I thought were great guys in the past. I've been so high on cloud 9 that nobody could tell me nothing. I've bragged and boasted about guys to my friends only to discard those bastards weeks or even days later. I've learned my lesson and now I expect the absolute worst. Fortunately, so far I've gotten nothing but the best. And for that reason, I'm ready to share my experience with you hoes.

He's 27 and works as a political consultant in Baltimore. That's all of his personal information I'm willing to divulge at the moment.

We met at this political event/dinner thingy I went to in very early May. We exchanged business cards and I really didn't think anything of it until he emailed asking if my non-profit was looking for a lobbyist. After some back and forth, it became clear that he was fishing for convo. I obliged. After about a week of feeling each other out, we were finally willing to express mutual interest. As many of you know, that process between two kings always have the potential to be cumbersome, awkward and downright messy, but he handled it with poise and valor. He impressed me from the beginning and continues to impress me weeks later.

We have amazing conversation. He's really smart. He's probably smarter than me and I find incredibly sexy. He's incredibly funny. He has a dry sense of humor, but it's endearing and isn't condescending at all. We're interested in the same things, but each have our own flair. We're similar enough that we enjoy the same types of politics, sports, news programs, tv shows, music, movies, comedy, etc., but mavrick enough to maintain to surprise the hell out of each other with a viewpoint or opinion. I hope that never wears off.

He's also very creative when deciding on things to do which is something that's been the bane of my fucking existence in previous relationships. Last week, for example, in the midst of what for me was a very busy Saturday, he asked me to meet him at what I thought at the time was a really random intersection in downtown Baltimore. Despite already having a full schedule, I cleared some time in between that damn 5K I ran and the party just outside of DC that resulted in my getting no poosay.

When I arrived I realized that he had signed us up for one of those Segs in the City tours that I always see in Baltimore and Washington. I melted because that's something I'd think to do as a date and I NEVER, EVER find men who are willing to think that far outside of the box when it comes to things to do. I had an amazing time. I haven't been this energized about a guy in quite some time. Like Martha would say...it's a good feeling.

I would tell you about the sex we had for the first time two weeks ago, but I'm gonna cut it short here because I feel like I'm gushing at this point.

Wish me well.

Ahhh...new love, its great.
I hope you two have a long and prosperous relaltionship, and may you have a civil union, adopt a thousand Mandrian and African babies, or have some lucky serogate, be your baby momma, which ever you like, it's you choice!

But No really, I'm happy for you too. I hope everything works out.

I understand you not wanting to count your eggs before they hatch, kind of view, on it.

Also I totally agree with you on thinking being really smart, as being incredibly sexy...I have recently developed a huge crush on Tavis Smiley. No joke, I just want to eat his brainy, smart, tail alive!
