Yesterday I posted about where I meet men. I am often told that I date such a wide variety of men, which is true. So today I am posting a list of the different types of men I have dated. I’ve been told there is a military bingo out there, you get bingo when you date one from each major branch of the military. I wish there was actual bingo cards for dating. A fun game to play with your friends. Or like Go Fish. Playing cards that you could swap and trade. Perhaps there is a side business in this idea… Hm…
Anyway, many years ago I realized that I was dating the same guy over and over again. I was in a rut. So I decided to just say yes to whatever offers came my way. See what it all turned into. It definitely opened my eyes a lot, and I learned a lot too.
This list in not complete, there are some guys I dated so long ago and only went on one or two dates and now I can’t remember. I will update this post if I can remember more about them.
I have dated:
- Train driver
- Former butcher turned salesman
- Computer repair guy
- The guy that plans emergency routes for bad weather
- Graphic designer
- The director of security at the Ravens stadium
- Bridge engineer
- A guy that owns a restaurant in Costa Rica
- Assistant manager of an Enterprise (Rent a Car)
- Sushi chef
- Park ranger at Lincoln monument
- Baseball scout
- Chef and owner of an awesome creole restaurant
- Guy that sold lacrosse trophies online
- Manager of a running store
- HR rep (not at my company!)
- Radio sound engineer
- Semi-professional poker player
- Civil engineer
- IT guy for a government agency
While it is a long list, and there are many more additions I could make since I’m including even dates that only happened once or twice, I still have a lot to learn. As a part of my journey that I am undertaking as a Single Woman again, I am exploring the reasons why I feel like I need to date and keep busy. Even though there is variety in this list, I am still most attracted to passionate men that are workaholics. Why am I afraid of a full time relationship? What am I hiding? What am I running from? Why am I pushing away relationships? What do I really want.
These are big questions. Big realizations that I am on the verge of breaking through. How exciting!
Thank you, dear reader, for joining me on this. I appreciate the company.
