It's kinda like being a cat juggler...

I've never been good with dating more than one guy at once... guess you could say I'm a one-guy-at-a-time type of gal.  But that isn't how it has been lately... I have had multiple guys interested in me... I have been emailing a 2 or 3(trying to get to know them better before going out on a date with them) and then two that currently want to take me out.

Now, let me start out by saying that I am a mom first and foremost... so my nights without children are not a lot... and then trying to figure out which guy I want to see... well...that is where the juggling comes in.

Last Friday, when I spent the evening with The Fireman, I was also invited out by B.P.  At the time, I had tentatively invited The Fireman over, but hadn't gotten confirmation.  Then B.P. called and wanted to know if I was free... he wanted to know if I wanted to join him on a quick trip to St. Louis.  (B.P. has known me long enough to know that I like spur of the moment.)  But, of course, I was cake decorating, so I told him that I couldn't.

But that is when the panic set in... What if B.P. suggested he come hang out??  How do I tell him no without eluding to the fact that I might have someone else coming over?? What if B.P. texts me all night ( like he sometimes does) while The Fireman is here??

Yeah... see?? It makes me an awful befuddled mess.

Thankfully, none of that happened. B.P. told me to have a great night of cake decorating... and The Fireman came over and hung out... and that was that.

But I have a feeling that won't be the last evening like that... and next time may not go as smoothly.  Anyone have any juggling advice before any claws come out?

  1. "Cake decorating"? Now THERE'S a metaphor. You sly girl.

  2. Juggling advice? Wow. The best I can give is: rely heavily on caller id. And I know that's not the least bit helpful.
