Hello everyone, I know it’s been a century since I have posted anything and I thought I’d discuss my very recent “date”, or “hang out” as he referred to it. It’s almost 1 am in the morning and I am crying so deeply and feel as if someone threw daggers in my heart and soul for fun; so why not write again, right? I’m going to be a bit lazy at the moment and not discuss my long online but not so much in real life relationship with this guy that auditions at the theatre I’m so desperately trying to get some sort of foot in the door. Long story short we recently saw Rock of Ages at said theatre during his busy acting schedule and I have been freaking out over this friend date for about a month or more. Onto the date itself!
Well it was a Saturday afternoon and I spent the whole day like a maniac talking to my friend on the phone hyperventilating and shivering as she took in all of my crazy. Once the doorbell rang I hung up on her and nearly jumped out of my skin like a shedding snake. I grabbed all of my things and hesitantly opened the door to see him in front of my door looking like a different but equally sexy person. There was something else but as his friend I will keep that confidential although he certainly did not outside of my house. So when I saw his truck (someone pay me for predicting this) it was very fragile looking and looked like it just rolled out of a tornado. I’m not much for judgement and am a fan of things that have character, he even named it Harley Quinn so how could I hate it at all. The drive to the theatre was very long and I was pretty certain I was barely touching my bum to the seat out of nervousness. He kept saying it was a “no judgement hangout” (well that murdered any chances of it being a date) and spent the whole drive making funny noises and entertaining me. This was certainly a side to him I actually never saw and I realized he’s more of a playful person than I gave him credit for. But practically being in love with him already did not make it easy for me to enjoy the night to it’s fullest. I almost took some Xanax before the date, but, NEVER DRUG YOURSELF BEFORE HANGING OUT WITH SOMEONE YOU BARELY KNOW.
Now, the destination, to the theatre to see Rock of Ages. As we approached the theatre he continued to crack jokes about not recognizing the theatre (he’s been in so many shows he should be a member by now) and when we entered the building it was like it he was skipping his way into his home with everyone he knew. That part also made me uncomfortable, and did I mention he saw the show already?! Apparently he saw it in previews and gave me a, “what had happened was”, story about why he didn’t pay me back. Basically, I could have seen the show with a friend and we could have done a movie and he just said yes to be nice. Okay, bitch fit over! During the show he continued to keep me entertained and sang to me and when the show wasn’t playing kept asking me what was on my mind but that damn anxiety kept blocking all thoughts from my mind. At the end of the show he said hi to the entire company of the building while I was left to only say hi to my cousin and friend I auditioned with in the past. Okay, let’s do a pros and cons list.
He never stopped being a gentleman to me and met me at the door and kept opening the doors for me.
He has A LOT of energy and I judged him more than I should have in the past and he spent every moment asking me if I was okay.
He definitely made sure I enjoyed the musical and kept singing that beautiful voice at me during fleeting moments of the show.
He’s overall so different than I thought he was and hopefully he wasn’t acting the whole time (ha…..ha)
He kept walking past me and not with me and a stranger would think we were completely total strangers.
He didn’t pay me back yet nor did he tell me he saw the show already when I asked if he wanted to see it with me. Movies are cheaper!
He didn’t introduce me to any of his friends although some introduced themselves to me.
He said he was going to text me when he got home but never did. I’ve been advised to never text him again until he messages me back because I never know if I’m someone else’s problem. This has been so difficult for me personally, I miss talking to him.
Whether he messages me back or not I will be seeing his next play soon and hopefully will be getting my money back. Despite having some feelings of him flashing back and forth I no longer have a crush on him and now see him as a friend. I’m pretty tired currently so I have nothing witty to end on as usual. I will be doing a rage filled entry soon about the actual show and white-washing in the (Southern) theatre community.
Hope this post helped you in some shape or form and that you or whoever is reading this is glad I am back and alive.
