As you can see I can be pretty aggressive one OKC haha. This is Bunny Boy, right off the bat our conversation was fun and he was extremely funny and full of wit. He could roll with whatever silly shit I would throw at him.
We plan to meet at Bi-Rite, a specialty market that is a must for a Dolores Park Picnic. They have great wines to choose from, baguettes, and an awesome selection of stinky cheeses.
I request that he wears the ears to our date.
He tells me unfortunately the ears in the pic are out of reach.
I inform him that there will be hell to pay if he shows up without the ears.
I had been looking forward to this one all week because our texts were hilarious! I was laughing out loud and eagerly waiting for the next line. We had almost hung out several times but I would decide that I wanted a full date rather than just a few random hours.
I was totally planning on making out with this guy and then some.
I go to meet him and I’m an hour late because I was collecting my life back together after losing my keys, wallet, and cell phone (I got them all back). I’m keeping in touch though and he’s totally chill about it all. He sends me a pic from Dolores Park Cafe to assure me he’s content with his book and bunny ears.
I arrive in a tacky blonde wig and we’re off. We pick up a bottle of red twist off wine, soft creamy cheese, and sourdough baguette. I take him to my favorite part of the park, right behind the playground on the hillside. It’s the BEST view in the park, if you go say hi to me because I’m probably up there.
We start chatting but something is off. There isn’t the same rapid fire banter that I was so excited to experience IRL. The eye contact is minimal if not non-existent. I try to engage him by sitting in his line of view, grazing his hand, telling my bad jokes; nothing. He’s so sad and I can feel it bumming me out. Being me, I’m trying my best to bring Bunny Boy around but eventually it’s time to go. He’s got work.
I can’t let it go! I wanted so bad for a spark to happen. I ask him for another date on Thursday around noon. Things end up not working out and I had a feeling they wouldn’t. So I have to ask: “What the hell happened out there?”
As I would find out, Bunny Boy is dealing with heartache.
I’ve run into this before. I dated a boy for 5 months, he was my first real boyfriend but he also a sense of sadness about him, a sadness that I couldn’t cure. I give Bunny Boy a bit of unsolicited advice (something I’ve been doing a lot lately) which is; Please, for yourself and others, be in a good place before going into the dating pool.
I am a firm believer of being the person you want to attract. If you’re in a negative space all you’re going to do is make the other person feel bad. You make that being wonder why they can’t be enough. Why they can’t make you happy.
Bunny Boy agrees.
I was bummed that this one didn’t work out but hopefully there are more funny bunnies to come.
