Well, it was nice to feel some chemistry, but, yeah, I stopped that train in it's tracks. On the second date, in the midst of participating in a labyrinth walk and attending an improv show in SF, the pattern of tension and lack of connection leading to a confrontation and "talking it out" continued. He seemed to be just generally disengaged and fairly arrogant until I called him on it, at which time he woke up and responded pretty well, but who wants to go through that on a regular basis. Pas moi.
Oh, and btw, he was into "Domin@nt/$ubmissive" sexual relationships, including $&M. Yes, it's true. I am open-minded but that would be for a little spice within a committed relationship, not the main agenda from the starting gate. No thank you.
I'm still feeling hopeful though. When I get back from Lake Tahoe, where Zoey and I are heading this weekend for another annual family getaway, I am going to post the new pictures I had taken on my profiles and rejoin a dating site I haven't been on in a while. I'll continue to meet people on the current one, but it will be nice to expand the pool of bachelors. :) Since reactivating my account, I've gotten a few responses, but won't be able to see them until a rejoin next week.
I'm not sure what it will be like on the trip, with my Mom just having begun another round of chemo treatments. Please continue to send your good thoughts and prayers. I'm going to look for ways to help her while I'm there. Also looking forward to playing with my nieces and nephew and going out on the lake. Hope you all have a fun Fourth of July with friends and/or family.
