Geez Louise!!

Dateless in Dallas

Linking up with my girl Bella today to fill ya in on my weekend. So if ya follow me on Twitter you noticed I mentioned the fact that I got to hang out with Ginger Beard this weekend. Keep reading to find out what happened.

So on Friday, of course I worked. It was a pretty busy day for me because I had some projects I needed to get done. 4:00 on the dot & I was outta there!! Went home and got dolled up and went out on the town with some girlfriends! Every year Johnson City has this festival called Blue Plum. I have lived here for almost 7 years now and have never been! So that's what we did on Friday.

First of all I never got to see an actual Blue Plum, I was told there would be some free things such as wine tasting, food sampling...uhm there was none whatsoever. I did however spend some money on some handmade jewelry. There were lots of booths set up for some crafty people. I'm thinking about setting up a booth next year to sell my canvas...maybe. I'll have to look into prices. But anyway.. It was a good time with good music.

So on Saturday I had to work at my 2nd job, practically a 12 hour shift. By the time I got home I was exhausted, I smelled bad, and my poor dog was attached to my hip because I was gone all day. So at that point after I had showered and put my pajamas on it was around 8:00, I cooked dinner.. actually cooked! It was so yummy. Turned on the t.v. to watch this past week's Catfish episode on my DVR. 
9:00 p.m. rolls around and I get a text

"Whatcha got goin on tonight?"

From the guessed it...Ginger Beard. I had every plan and fiber in my body to stay home and be lazy because I was exhausted. I didn't get home til midnight the night before because of Blue Plum, and then worked a long day. So of course my intentions of driving to Knoxville(a 2 hour drive from JC) to go to the Joe and dance my ass off were non-existent. 

So, I got off the couch and got ready to go to the Joe. 
And I'm telling you now, I wish I had just stayed home.

It was fantastic, at first! He thought I was going to stay home, because I never told him I was gonna go. I told him I was absolutely going to stay home. Everyone was out on the floor doing the cowboy shuffle line dance, and he was behind me. He had a little towel (sounds weird I know) hanging out of his back pocket..for sweat because it is hella hot out there and while you're dancing I totally understand. One part of the line dance involves turning around, I grabbed the towel out of his pocket and he whipped around and saw me, I smiled at him and he got this big ole goofy smile on his face that made me blush and all giggly blah blah blah...

We hugged, exchanged 'so glad to finally meet you's, and started having a great time! We were dancing and flirting, all that jazz. Then the hip-hop/freestyle songs came on (basically just to bump and grind) and we were dancing.. all was well, then he backed a way for a bit and was dancing with his friends, no big deal.. here's where things take a turn..

Some other dude just came up behind me and started dancing with me. I didn't tell him to stop (apparently I should have) but hey, I was still feeling pretty good with the few beers I had in me and thought why not? So I just kept dancing, GB never stole me away, butted in, or anything (I assumed this is what a man would do if he was interested in me). Instead he marched off the dance floor. At first I thought well maybe he's gonna just go sit for a bit b/c we had been dancing for a while and sweatin.. I kept dancing (apparently I was supposed to stop). The rest of the time, he was avoiding me. The next popular line dance came on, I go over to stand next to him and in mid-song, he moves away from me. 

At this point, I've got it in my head that maybe he just stopped liking me? Maybe he thought I sucked at dancing. I honestly forgot about dancing with another dude and thinking that might have pissed him off. About an hour passes by and he's being shady as I'll get out, my bff asked if I was ready to go, and I was like sure. So he's out doing some line dance that I don't know, and I am in his view waving him down to try to say goodbye. I know he could see me but was ignoring me. At that point I was like f- it, I'm gone. I texted him,

Was TRYING to feel out the situation to see if he'd respond.. lame.

So most of my morning after, we texted back and forth arguing about the one freaking guy I danced with like I intentionally danced with the dude in front of him. I am so frustrated for a few reasons:

1. We are not in a relationship.
2. I didn't intentionally dance with him in front of GB.
3. I didn't even dance the whole song with him.
4. I left the floor shortly after GB did.
5. GB made no effort to prove to the dude that I was "with" GB.
6. Grow a pair and get over it.

Seriously he kept going on and on and on about how I disrespected him by dancing with another dude. I JUST MET YOU GB!?!? At a bar, even. instead of properly asking me out on a date after ALL the opportunities you had while we've been talking, you suggested that we hang out at a freaking bar? For the first fucking time?!? How respectful is that? How do you expect me to respect you when you haven't made ONE effort to hang out on a proper date? Huh? How? 

AGHH makes my damn blood pressure rise and I was trying my hardest not to curse in this post but it's happened and probably gonna happen... whatever.

After all of the arguing I left him with 'K' and everyone knows that pisses everyone in the world off to leave someone with a 'K' but it finally shut him up. However, it didn't stop him from checking my MyStory on Snapchat for the rest of yesterday.. and this morning. Ugh. Boys suck.

I tried to keep my mind off it all day but I just couldn't.

However, I do have a date with someone this Wednesday, I'm pretty excited about it. Hopefully new guy will keep my mind off of GB. I just can't be involved with someone who gets so jealous over something so stupid, when we aren't even dating.

Help me out, am I in the wrong? Should I be kneeling at his feet begging for forgiveness? Or do you agree that he is over-reacting? Please be honest with me because I don't know what to do... I really freaking like him.

Anyway, if you've made it this far.. you must really love me!! I love you back for sure!! I have some AWESOME hall of lamers premiering tomorrow so make sure to check in =)


  1. Dude, you are so not in the wrong. This GB dude is holding you up to super misogynistic standards and talking like you belong to him or something. Unless you've explicitly discussed and decided to be monogamous, he has zero say in what you do with other men...and I'd still be really wary of a dude who doesn't let you just dance with somebody else. Spells trouble tbh. You're dodging a bullet here.

  2. Oh thank you so much!! I don't want to come across as a bitch but I really feel like I'm right on this one as well.. just wanted a confirmation from another girl ya know? Thank you!!!

    Dating online is hard. I dated a lot of really crappy people before finding Beeble. The truth is though that there were some really awesome stories in those bad dates. They're funny now in otherwords. I wouldn't go out with this guy again for sure though. He sounds too passive aggressive to me.

  4. Omggg guys like that make me sooo mad! Granted I don't like feeling claimed but seriously you can't know you're doing something wrong if you aren't told and HELLO you both had friends there aka not an official date so he's the one who messed up and then got mad. His loss! You're better than that!

  5. Yeah GB needs to grow a pair. While also knowing that you guys were not on an actual date. Ugh guys are such idiots at times.

  6. It really is, there's some background info on Ginger Beard in another one of my posts..he's a guy that I actually knew outside of online dating, but never officially met until we found each other on the dating site.. It really sucks that he is such a jerk, because I was really liking him..a LOT. But I definitely agree!!

    Oh, wow is all I can say!!! What the heck is up with GB? It is so annoying that some guys automatically awesome you belong to them when you've only hung out.

  8. I have no idea.. I mean at first I could understand his frustration maybe, but I didn't think he'd dwell on it so much. Like come on dude..jealous much?

  9. That's cool! I've never been to Blaine, but I've heard of it!

  10. oh that is crazy, you were clearly doing nothing wrong, he shouldn't have been mad!

  11. THANK YOU!! Idk what his problem was...

    My papaw used to own the only restaurant in Blaine. I'll be there in August so maybe we'll have to meet up.

  13. I love local festivals! SO much fun!!!!!

  14. Just found your blog and already love it!!! Good luck with GB and your date on Wednesday. I have one on Wednesday too. We'll see!!!

  15. Welcome!!! Thanks so much :) Oooh I'd love to hear about your date :)

  16. Thanks!! I'll let you know. I can't wait to hear about yours too!!! I have a 2nd date with another guy on Thursday too...again...we'll see!!!
