This one is juuuussst right...............

Sometimes I feel like Goldilocks when dating. This one is too passive, this one is too short, this one is.....never "just right". I was optimistic about meeting the EHarmony guy for dinner last night. We seem to have a lot in common. Even our last two cars were the same. He is smart, he is funny, he is successful, wants kids, loves dogs and travels to cool and exotic locations a lot. He is a genuinely nice man with a lot to offer any woman. We met for dinner last night, first face to face meeting. He is shorter than me, which in and of itself wouldn't be a problem but he is a lithe man.....I have a feeling I could snap him in two with my strong Viking woman thighs. He has very small hands. Worst of all, he was wearing a dolphin necklace with mother of pearl on it. Ee. So very New Age and gay.......he is older than I, which is why he is in a place to give me what I need financially......theoretically, I could not work and stay home. I could be a lady that lunches, knits, works out, shops all day. I could not help but compare him to San Fran and Skeptic.....guys my own age with rock hard muscular bodies. When I wrap my arms (and legs) around them, I know I am with a M-A-N. They are also quite good looking. New Age guy is good looking but in a more delicate older guy way. He also seemed confused about things such as the valet. What really took me aback was when he used words like "tummy" and talked about how he accesses his physical, mental and emotional well-being. I mean, it is one thing to be self-actualized but this is a little much for me. (Mr. MBA absolutely agrees with me, he dumped a chick for calling his penis a "wee wee") What is wrong with me? If I were to go out with the New Age guy, I would be with someone that would be kind, capable of offering me everything I want and would LOVE me with all his heart and soul....yet, I am still craving the male machismo of a Skeptic or San Fran. Is there ever a "just right?" Can we have our needs met by only one other person? Why do I not want someone who is very clearly a catch? I think I am destined to constantly be kicking tires looking for the "ONE" that will allow me to rest easy. Wondering who will be sleeping in my bed and eating my porrage next.

Does he do Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and Yoga like Dustin Hoffman in Meet the Fockers? Has he channeled his inner chi?

Aww sweets.. I'm sorry things didn't go as planned. And yeah I'm holding on to the idea that there is that one out there (did I mention I am holding on with a death grip?). Isn't it amazing how we are never quite satisfied with what we have... always wanting or thinking we need more. Damn. Desire is a bitch.

Thanks Blicious....desire is a bitch, and so am I. I refuse to give up on my (seemingly endless) quest. He is great...just that fucking dolphin necklace and using words like "tummy"...just not so sure I can go there. Love you and thanks again for Drinko De Mayo!
