It's the All Star Break and that means that my job at work should be very easy. My manager asked me to come in a little earlier (still afternoon) to work so I could get out at an hour where bars would still be open and I could meet a friend for a drink or two.
Well, a last minute "crisis" at work and mis-communication left me at work an hour and a half later than I should have been there. It's ok though. The overtime was worth it.
It's been a fun past week. I have been hitting very well in softball and got moved to batting 2nd in our lineup. My bat has been on fire and my fielding has been pretty good too. I am excited for that.
What made my week was this guy Moose texting me. I met him last summer and the night we spent together was pretty awesome. We did not have full on sex but had some fun regardless. Since then we have kept in touch through texting and phone calls.
Well, he text me this past weekend asking me if I was going to be heading to the gay world series this year. I am not. He said, "Well, it would be nice to see you again. You should fly out" The games are in Milwaukee. I'm not gunna fly all the way to Milwaukee for a booty call and to watch softball.
This has led me to a conversation I had with a fellow reader named Jason. Since 2007, I have met some really nice guys. Awesome guys. Running theme has been that I don't live near any of them.
Of the last 5 guys that I met that were decent guys I would have tried to date all of them. All of the guys said they would love to date me; if I lived near them and didn't work nights. Obviously, someone not willing to sacrifice my work schedule to make a relationship work is not worth it.
I know that. It's just frustrating that it's a common theme.
I did, however, meet up with a friend of mine from LA who is back in the NY area. We had a long conversation about life and what I want to do at a diner after getting some drinks on Saturday night. His conclusion is that I should save a bunch of money and move in with him in LA. He has an extra bedroom I could rent out from him and he doesn't mind. We'll see how it goes. The more I think about it the more I need to take a risk.
