In either case, I met a guy last Wednesday at an industry karaoke party. He sang Friends in Low Places twenty minutes after I did... better. He came over to me and apologized for the biggest offense in karaoke law. He said he didn't pick that song and it was a computer malfunction. I told him it was okay since our versions were very different from each other anyway...he did the whole 'singing on key' thing while I ventured away from that route.
(I'm charming, I know)
We talked for the next hour. We both think Friday nights are meant for staying in and doing nothing. We work in the same industry, not in the same office (whew).
Getting drinks Wednesday at 8pm. He picked the time and place. He has a good head of hair and is at least 5'10. I'll let you know about which version of GF he likes.
It's been over 2 years since I've been on a date. I'm not nervous, just finally ready. What can I say? My cynicism kinda took over for awhile and it was just recently I told it to F off and leave me alone.
