Gypsy and I had our date. I would give it a B+. Truthfully, it started off a little rough. She looked stunning and that did not help with my pre-game jitters. Eventually I was able to stop thinking about how beautiful she was and just have a natural conversation. After dinner we went to The Phantom of the Opera, which we both thought was amazing. Took her home, gave the usual goodnight hug (that lingered just a bit) and left with the super specific and detailed promise of "doing something again sometime soon." Done.
Fast forward about 16 hours and I am on The Facebook doing my thing. Of course my thing includes a quick check of Gypsy's page. And what do my eyes see? Her profile picture has changed to a pic of her and another girl. And they are both holding up pieces of paper. Oh Haillllll No. She got her mission call just days earlier! How did I not know this???? She never said anything about it to me! To her credit she was obviously not hiding it, but I don't go on Facebook that often. Maybe last week when it seemed like she wanted to mack, she just wanted to fill the canteen a little. In hindsight, I should have went for it. I'll never forgive myself.
Well the jig is up. No second date. No "doing something again sometime soon." I really need to replenish my dating pool. Preferably with girls that do not have rings or mission calls.
