At any rate, I parked at work and then met them at the bar. 5+ hours of drinking leaves someone who weighs 108 lbs a little not okay to drive. To play it safe, I simply hung out until the buzz wore off and then went home.

What a difference a second date can make. After telling him no at first, he invited me to hang out with his friends yesterday. 4 bars and 1 restaurant later, it was a very nice time. He was actually talkative. His friends were great. Didn't think I'd be the only girl there, but hey.
There’s a reason why DR.s have a very high divorce rate!

Haha, convenient!

No way I'd be safe to drive after that sort of session, within 12h.

Whats the meaning of "bottomless coffee"? I read that at a café bar at an airport. Is that kinda coffee flat, so to speak?

I feel this. I also feel like people that go into a relationship with this mentality, tend to stick with it. Wishing you a favorable outcome, whatever that may be.


Current girlfriend is awesome in so many ways, but something is off somewhere and I can't put my finger on it. I'm not going to toot my own horn and say that I'm funny....I'm f'n hilarious. I haven't had the experiences that I've had with women, because they like guys with no personality. Lately, the laughter has stopped. We laid in bed last night watching TV and in my typical state of mind, I make fun of everything that I see. Nothing but blank stares. I did manage to get her to talk about cleaning her house and work. I guess it's a good think I didn't just stare at her blankly, when talks of work and cleaning commenced.

Bottomless means so many wonderful things to me!

However, it can also have a negative connotation in other areas. It's ok though, it just means that I'll have sore hips the next day.

Honestly, at this point, I’m just like “WTF is up?” I wont accept “fine” as an answer. Lord knows how many times Ive been blindsided (not just by this woman) by supposed issues that were always “nothing.”

I honestly think that is how this gal makes up my “cheating.” Something enters her mind, she is “fine” and that gives her time to go from me taking 30 minutes to get back to her all the way to me banging a coworker or something.

I’m over letting sleeping dogs lie, I’m 40 and I dont have time for that shit.

I dated a girl a few years back. The first time she came to my house, she explained that we had to have a serious discussion. She was in a protection program. Apparently the ex, now in prison, tried to kill her several times. The last attempt was in the form of a car bomb. The car bomb incident happened while he was in prison. It was a little discerning to know that in order for her to come to my house, it required a full background check without my knowledge. I also had two unmarked black SUV's parked in my neighborhood anytime she came over. Needless to say, that didn't last very long. I think I've posted about this somewhere here before. Rather off-putting to know that people at the end of the street, are listening to everything going on inside my house.
It really isn't a killjoy, it has much more to do with this specific community than convicted felons. It's a weird vibe here; it's definitely different from anything I've experienced in the past. I should add that the woman in my story is a solid 4/10. If she were a total smoke show I'm sure there's a section in The Doctrine on how to navigate a situation where you might be dating a hot criminal.

Ah, the guessing game. I can relate on this as well. Girlfriend acts odd, I ask, "Everything ok." She smiles and says everything is fine. 5 seconds later, silence and blank stares again. At this point, all I know to do is to continue to be me.

And make sure she has no sharp or blunt instruments around. The stare is a real concern!!!

Right? It feels like she's upset with me. I keep trying to get her to talk about it, but she says everything is fine. Ok, I guess it's fine then.

It’s when the pursed lips turn to the slightest smile and her head tilts slowly, allowing the strongest of side eye situations.

If you ask, and she says 'it's fine' or words to that effect, it's on her. IMO. If she won't tell you what's wrong, she also cannot reasonably expect you to help fix it. As Rudi says, just carry on being you!

Problem is then its a blow-up later. Do that once and Im done pretending its just zoning out or a distraction, either talk or leave.

Its always (at least in my case) the stupidest fucking reason on the planet. Like some simple ass miscommunication or something completely nothing. Like the last chick blew up once because I wouldnt "let" her help cooking when she came over. Then you wonder why a dude wont commit, after a fight as stupid as that.
