#OkCupid: Worst first impression meets a pretty gnarly first meeting

This picture is completely unrelated to the post. It just made me smile. Wow, so I just got back home from my meeting with the worst first impression guy.

Lemme take a few steps back first to explain what just transpired ...

So, I got a text this morning, asking if we were still on for our date. I am just the worst dater in the world, and didn't even remember that I had a date tonight. Nothing personal against this dude, or any dude for that matter, just kinda spaced on it. This birthday week has really screwed with me - so much going on. He said his name, and for some god awful reason I just did not connect that person with that name. I didn't even remember giving him my number. Not that he didn't warrant it, this guy is impossibly gorgeous, but brain did not connect. Nerd fail of epic levels.

Thinking he was the virgin boy, (this guy on OKC is 26 and a virgin ... yep, that's happening) I just told him to meet me at the Corner Bakery where I was hanging out all day. Again, thinking there's NO way I am going to date a virgin, but lemme just open myself up to this experience and see what I can take away from it.

I posted on it ... and just kinda went about my day. At 7:30, I looked down and saw a text from the guy. He was like, hey, I'm not the virgin boy ... I'm xxxx - I was like oh holy shit. Called out. Lifecaster fail. HAARRDDCOORREEEE!!!

Told him of course that would still be okay ... dude, I didn't even freshen up my makeup or anything. This guy's profile is like stupid. He's hot. Crazy hot. I was like no no no no no no, but bahh! I gotta just go with it. So I did ... and 30 minutes later he arrived. I thanked him for his sense of humor and understanding.

We started talking, and I didn't notice it at first because his skin is so light - but he is latin. Like LLLLAAATTTTINNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!! When I was 7, I used to run around the house proclaiming my love for Antonio Banderas. I used to even love just saying his name ... saying mommy mommy! I wanna marry Antttonnniooooo BANNNNDDEERRASSSSS!!! Down with Melanie Griffith!!! Dude, at this point I'd just negotiate a three some. HAHA!!! Little 7 year Jen Jen did not consider that possibility ... either way, I digress. Love love LOOVVEEE me some latin men. They're so passionate! I've only dated 1 latin dude before, and he was like meh, nice guy, but kinda a sissy ... this dude is just wow ... caliente!! Into MMA fighting, has gone skydiving, is in the industry so he "gets it" ... and yah! Mama likes!

I totally didn't expect to have a date today, let alone one where I was so clearly unprepared, but we went out for amazing pizza and I had a blast. I'm not mad at it. We've already scheduled another date, and we'll have to see where it goes from there.

I will say this, a girl knows within the first 2 minutes if she is going to have sex with a guy. For real, I make my mind up very fast - its just a matter of whether or not he can sustain that ranking for the duration of time. It's incredibly true. Women just know, we just don't say anything about it ... clearly ... and of course there is the mental stimulation and all that jazz. But the bottom line is everything starts off with a very deliberate yes or no. If it's a no, I'm incapable of even playing along. I won't talk about a second date, its just there or not. You can't predict who you're going to click with. The metrics on OKC may be off the charts, but sexual chemistry is an unpredictable beast all of its own.

Right now, he's in the yes category. Like for sure, I don't even have to remotely pretend. Dude, nutella came up in conversation. Are you for reals right now?? Nutella = crack. We'll see how long he can keep me entertained. Not gonna lie, I bore easily. Latin men are funny though, they aren't conversation starters. I had to ask him questions to keep the conversation going, which is weird. I'm used to being asked the questions, but I think its a cultural thing. I've noticed it a lot in even just my latin guy friends. They're not naturally inquisitive which makes for an interesting first meeting. 

Sunday, first official date. We'll see how it goesssssss
