Here I am with an invite to the Gov's Christmas Gala and with no boyfriend at the moment and thinking, thinking who I could possibly invite? Someone that would not embarrass me would be good. Problem is I don't seem to be coming up with much. What I mean by presentable, I should clarify that, is a guy who happens to:
1. Live here
2. Knows how to dress for such an event (it's not a jeans and tshirt thing)
3. Knows how to act appropriately at such an event
4. Has the social skills and intelligence to carry on an appropriate conversation at such an event
5. Is single
I could think of at least 10 different boys in DC that I know (as friends, love interests, whatever, who cares) I would feel comfortable bringing to something like that.
But, le sigh, not here.
I am either not meeting the right men here and need to restart that whole 50 random dates thing I was doing or just resign myself to the fact, once again, that what I'm looking for does not exist in Utah. For the gala, or in dating in general.
I don't mean to sound bitter, and I'm not in general. But when it comes to fun stuff like this it would really, really be nice to know the kinds of guys I actually want to be out with.
*Update - I really need to stop panicking and then complaining. Not an hour later a few boys did indeed come to mind. They were possibilities, but ultimately it was decided I would go with my friend J...who is flying up from Texas to see me. How cool is that?
Addendum - To be fair to the men of Utah I prolly need to mention I stopped doing the 50 random dates thing because I may have been a wee bit sidetracked with the whole DC thing. So I may not have been really looking...
**Another update, so J decided with the short notice and holidays all here and such that it was a bad idea to fly up after all. Sadness. However, gladness, I do, indeed, have a brand new date to take that seems to be someone who would act appropriately. Bonus, he's cute, too.
Side note to self (and by that I mean all of you, too) - I have really got to make it a rule not to talk about my dates (or lack of them) on here. Okay, new rule. That is the end of me talking about dating on here and about my dates. Unless of course they do something that is amazingly awesome and I am then going to marry them and have their babies for it.
