Mr. Good on Paper and Good in Person

So I had another date last night, and all I can say is this…“what the hell is wrong with me?”

I can’t figure it out. I can’t quite put my finger on it. But I definitely have a problem.

…A serious problem.

You see, Mr. Good on Paper and Good in Person did everything right. First and foremost, before we even met, he instigated an actual phone conversation. And that says a lot in my book. We had a couple of conversations before we actually sent text messages or went out on a date.

I know, it’s crazy, isn’t it?

Kind of old fashioned, but I like it!

We planned to meet for drinks at a trendy club. He showed up on time. He looked nice. He dressed well. He was friendly. He was communicative. He was funny. He has his shit together. And most importantly, he not only asked questions, but he seemed genuinely interested in my answers.

I got a lot of information from him during our conversations. He is a hard worker. He is a great dad. He is well educated. He is a good businessman. He is outgoing. He likes to have fun. He is spontaneous.

He has met all of my criteria (except the height issue, but I’m working on that)! He is truly good on paper and good in person.

But…here’s the kicker…

I’m not feeling it. And I have no idea why…

We are going to dinner next week…and I’m determined to figure it out.

Wish me luck!


  1. Sometimes, it's just not there...remember ALWAYS go with your gut!

  2. I know exactly how you feel. I, too, have gone out with a couple of guys who seemed perfect, yet just not perfect for ME. It kinda made me sad. But, if there's no 'spark' there, I usually want to call it quits, instead of sticking it out a little longer and seeing if something develops.

  3. I agree with the other commenter. Go with your gut! God created us to sometimes "just know".

    But...that said...hope things look up and you have fun!!!
