Charming, but single

A journal in dates and drinks

Trying to tell me something ...

I am paying someone to attempt to set me up with guys I already know. This week, my potential matches by e-mail included four guys that I already know. One of them was B’s roommate. One of them I used to have a crush on years ago … until I actually spoke to him. (I am not the only woman I know who has had a similar experience with this guy.) The others are friends of friends. And when the Web sites themselves aren’t doing it, the guys are. The most recent, “Hey, don’t I know you?” guy is a friend of Party Girl’s boyfriend. I recognized him immediately from a few social occasions and sent her his picture to confer. She confirmed that it was him, gave glowing reviews (works in architecture, responsible, fun, very friendly) and was insistent that I e-mail him back. Part of me thinks that she has slightly ulterior motives to all of this. Her boyfriend has a huge pack of guyfriends with which he does pretty much everything. And so she’d like to have a female friend around for the marathon of tailgating and grilling out and drinking. So, I wrote him a message. Just a quick, “Nice to hear from you, here is my e-mail and screen name.” I was about to send it and I stopped. I added a note at the end that only someone who knew his group of friends would know. Stalkerish and creepy or cute and coy? I’ll let him decide. I sent it and smiled. Can it be a coincidence that guys who would otherwise have a way to connect with me have flirted with me this way? I guess we’ll see.
