I realized I had never posted a follow up to my dealings with the beauty pageant girl. I came back to find that I had been cock blocked by none other than Glistam and the thread had been locked. I'm actually quite proud that a thread I started hit the magical 71 mark. It's interesting to go back through 71 pages and see how far we've all come. And by "we" I mean "Exzavier".

That being said, on with the girl story:

My friends and I host a fairly large St. Patty's day party every year, so I went ahead and invited Steph. She sent me back an email that said, "I've got plans that night. You should probably know that I'll be going out with Kevin that night". Kevin is the other guy who was there the first night that I met Steph. She then went on to say, "If you want to do lunch or something on the following Sunday, that'd be okay"

Normally I'd take the obvious shut down and friend date and be fine with it, but I'm trying to to be slightly more assertive. I knew she was in to baseball, and they'd just opened up a spring training field literally across the street from my parents house. I checked, and sure enough there was a game at noon that day. I responded to her and said, "Lunch would be great. This new place opened up next to my parents house that I've been wanting to try. I hear the food isn't great, but it's more about the experience."

The baseball game went well, but afterwards she sent me a message saying, "I just want to make sure we're on the same page. You're a cool guy, but we're just friends right? I felt bad that you paid for my ticket." I took it all in stride, and actually set something up with another girl. This was probably important as it took some of the pressure off in an odd way.

Later that week though Steph and I were joking around on IM and she made some comment about not wanting to eat alone. She lives about a 100 miles away, and... well, long story short an hour and a half later we were having dinner. Something happened that night, and I think we both sort of got in to each other. From there it's progressed pretty steadily to the point that I'd say we're "dating" or something.

My only real reservation is still the age thing. It comes up enough that I'm worried, but it's not a huge issue yet. I guess time will tell.

Time will definitely tell. It will tell you precisely what you don't want to hear. Happens every time, without fail. But for now, have your fun and enjoy the experience. There's no good reason not to take the risk if that's what you want.

This thread has led me to the firm conviction that Lotan is more sane than most of us.

I'm still sitting back taking it easy myself. I figure about the time I'm in Texas next month will be a good point to start getting shot down again.

I'm a sucker for a good smile, a good figure, a redhead, and a woman who can handle a gun.

Me too. She's also an uber geek who claims to like Dostyevski, D&D, camping, and hiking. She is suppose to be moving to IL soon to start her masters after finishing her B.A. in European History.

If that's really "her". Not surprising that she's into guns living in OKC. It seems that I'm the only one in the city that doesn't have a Conceal Carry license...

OKC = OkCupid. She's ex-army, otherwise I would have been far more suspicious about the picture. Also, there are multiple photos which all look authentic.

That said, she's actually out in Madhatte's neck of the woods right now, I should have him look her up to see if she's real or not.

I met a girl who is basically my dream girl on the OKC back in November. Biggest issue is that she lives in Houston now. Last month I convinced her to come out and stay for a few days.

We hit it off fairly well, but I doubt she'll be moving to Phoenix any time soon.

I've sorta got other shit going on now anyhow though.

The other funny part is that she looks a lot like a human version of my Final Fantasy character. It's a bit weird.

I met both Perseph and another girl, who I dated for about 6 months, through OKC.

The way I see it, all of our relationships fail, except maybe one, so that's just par for the course.

I met my fiance on OKC. I tried the pay sites, then I realized that it's not really in their business model to hook people up. People find love, they stop paying for the service.

OKC works also check out www.plentyoffish.com . And no, it's not referring to the smell.
