“My Other Half Isn’t…At A New York Hotel”

27 May

But, he could have been at a pub around the corner.

After work on Monday I decided to go for a walk around the city to clear my head and enjoy the early summer sunshine.  A friend of mine was having drinks at the London Hotel and wanted me to meet her.  To tell you the truth, it had been a miserable work day and I really wasn’t in the mood to be social.

With that, I decided to go to a pub around the corner from the London; a pub I had never been to before.   It was small with only a handful of people watching a soccer game. 

I was there for about a half an hour when a sweet gentleman asks if he can sit next to me, if he wasnt being too forward.

Now, before you read on, please go back and read the list of requirements my 18-year-old self had.

Alex, (again, names have been changed for the sake of my bank account) had short blond hair and blue eyes.  At the bar, he told me stories of his house on the beach and how he LOVED to surf. 

He was a pilot for a private jet company and traveled a great deal.

He informed me that he played the guitar and violin (even though it wasnt too well).  As a matter of fact, he was into every music genre you can think of.  I’m a self-proclaimed groupie and can’t even say that.

Anyway, from the bar we went to dinner where we discussed more about life and how too short it is to not be kind to your fellow man.  We had a short romantic walk to Port Authority where I received a heart stopping kiss.

Did I mention that he left yesterday?

Do I necessarily believe everything that he said?  Absolutely not.  If life experience has taught me anything it is that guys will say just about ANYTHING to get what they want.  It could be sex, it could be company on a date and it could just be to get  you to like them.

When he said he would keep in touch because he comes to New York a lot, I thought it was 10% true.

The reason I am sharing this, and including it on my journey for Mr. Right, is because even if I never see him again I got to have a perfect and unexpected night.

Every perfect night I’ve had in my past is always overshadowed by how it ended. 

With this, it is a really sweet story to tell and for ONCE it doesn’t end with “He turned into an asshole”.

If I ever do hear from him again I would be excited though but in the words of my coworker and friend “In dating keep things breezy and you wont get hurt…like your idol Penny Lane!”

Next stop on the “Other Half” train is Meadowlands Arena in New Jersey.  Was a potential future husband at the Bon Jovi show last night?

P.S.  I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind comments and reads.  I’m always surprised to log on to find that I’m not just talking to myself out in cyber space.  It really is greatly appreciated.  So, from the bottom of my cynical, Fort Knox heart  (haha), I thank you.
