The 37 Hour Date

Before I begin, let me do the math. An average date, that includes a meal and another activity, barring the fact that the couple has been dating for some time already, averages between 3 to 5 hours. 5 being on the long side, even for what can be called a good date. 3 being painfully long for a bad one. This equation in place would give the 37 hour date a ratio of either 12:1 or 7.2:1 meaning that I squeezed in between 7 and 12 dates in one. Mathematical hyperbole aside these 37 hours seem to rush by making them, in reality, seem like a mere 3 hours and change.

I am not going to go into details of my date, but I will say that it was an experience that I have not had before insofar as it was not like getting to know someone new; someone foreign, but catching up with and old friend. Never before have I had the feeling that I have come home. Never before had I felt the feeling that, even for the moment, that I could be the most important thing in another persons life. Never before have I not wanted something to end....

From spending hours in Spencer's laughing at the same dumb joke items, to sharing the same air parked in my jeep looking out over the water in Toms River have I ever felt that something just felt right.

37 hours. An infinitesimally small amount of time compared to the time until we can see one another again. And for the first time, I can say, without any reservations, that it doesn't suck.

April Update

April has arrived and there is nothing new to report on any front really. Had two dates with someone in March that didnt work out. It seems that since the New Year I have dated one person per month. Regardless if it is one date or ten, though its always closer to one.

Work front is the same I guess those who know me know exactly what that means, I have been assigned to the library for some strange reason. Being there and doing things like cataloging and helping students with research and other day to day activities makes me regret not getting a degree in Library Sciences. Not that it is too late. I need to seriously thing about going back to school. After all I have like 17 years left before retirement. Not even the half way mark in my career, so it would actually pay, to invest time and money now, for something I might actually enjoy doing for the remainder of my career.

Meterologically, March is mercurial at best. For me it was steady and calm and as placid as any lake in may.

Till next time crimestoppers.
