It's not a record...

...but I talked to Mr. Not Serious last night on the phone for 2 hours and 38 minutes. I think he might be serious about wanting "intellectually stimulating conversation," as opposed to the occasional booty call. (Or perhaps in addition to the occasional booty call...I'm not sure about that yet. Hee.)

What does one talk about for that length of time? Well, many things...but a great deal of the time was taken up by him doing my astrological chart. (He's a longtime, though amateur, astrologist.) And, I have to say...most of what he said was right on the money. Fascinating. He said there's NO WAY I should have been a doctor (remember yesterday's angsting?), as there is virtually no activity in the 7th house--the house of medicine. And, according to him, my chart virtually assures that I should be an actress. Hmmm....

It was all very detailed--planets, houses, signs, red, blue and green lines, conflations, and I might have thought he was shading some of his assessments to make them seem more accurate to me...but he doesn't know me. Okay, the medicine thing I did ask about, but a lot of the rest of it, well...he'd have no way of knowing what I would expect the answers to be. While analyzing my relationship aspects, at one point he said I had a "square" in the love area. Which made me laugh out loud. You see...(I guess it does no harm to reveal this now)...New Guy's last name was...Square. Bwa!

Eventually he got around to doing our "composite" chart, to see what kind of relationship the two of us might have. "Interesting, possibly intense. But I have to say...I see most of the activity being short term, not long term. (short pause, then he nervously continued) Are you going to hang up on me now?" I just laughed. Dude, you told me right upfront you weren't looking for a long term commitment. And you told me tonight you were afraid you were going to be transferred to a different "home base" for your job fairly soon. You haven't exactly misled me here.

So, maybe he's completely full of shit, but I had a good time talking to him. He finds me "fascinating," and we're planning to get together this weekend for a beer or something. I need someone to kill the time until Prince Charming comes along, right?

We had a client at my last firm and she used to do my charts every now and then. It can be pretty interesting.

The first guy who ever contacted me on the dating site I used to use would call me and we would talk for hours and hours. We never met in person. He broke up with me twice before we ever had the chance to meet. The first time he broke up with me was on the day we were supposed to meet. I asked him if we could still be friends even if we didn't feel a romantic connection once we met in person and he told me I didn't seem to be ready to date and asked me to never contact him again. Weird. About 6 months later he started calling me again. We talked for a few months and I suggested we meet. He told me he had asked me to meet him tons of times and my "dance card was always too full" for him so he didn't think it was meant to be. He then wrote me an email saying he was going for a motorcyle ride in the north Georgia mountains and if he never returned it would be for the best. He swore it wasn't a suicide threat and then he blocked my emails. I hope your guy turns out to be much more normal than that. :-) This should also help you to realize that dating in Atlanta is no easier than where you are.

Wow, that was a long comment. I probably should have just written a post on my own blog. Sorry!

see, we knew you shouldn't have been a doctor! tara once told me how angst-ridden she felt for being the only one she knew in her class without a masters' degree or higher. it's all relative and i think you really should concentrate on that classmate in prison.

or think of me and kris, who had a "supermodel/actress" in our class. but by all accounts, that girl is, still to this day, a total see you next tuesday. at least you and i are not doodyheads.

Interesting is good in any capacity, I think. Sure beats boring as hell, anyway!

3carnations said...

Sounds like he might be fun...just don't get too attached, I guess. (of course you have to meet him first...)

lizgwiz said...

ss, that is freaky. Hopefully this won't come to that. ;)

george, hey--that supermodel is almost related to me. My aunt (by virtue of her having married my uncle, who wasn't really my uncle so much as he was my mother's cousin who was raised by her parents, but we considered him our uncle and his wife our aunt--are you confused yet?) is Amber's great-aunt (by blood, this time). I would get back to the point, but I'm not sure I have one. Hee.

npw, I am definitely not big on boring. ;)

3car, yeah...we have to see if we even have friend chemistry in person...unlike that last guy. Bah.

Isn't it great when the stars tell you that you haven't screwed up your life? He sounds interesting and nice. Too bad he's up-front short-term; it would be interesting to see how it would work with you two.

Stinkypaw said...

Nice way to spend time, and he does sound interesting, so... enjoy!

greenduckiesgirl said...

He sounds really interesting and I have always thought that there must be something to astrology. And yeah, why shouldn't you have someone fun to hang out with? Anyone would be better than that last guy. Yuck.

And Sauntering Soul's comment was very intriguing. What a jerk. I'm so very glad I don't date. Usually.

That actually sounds like it was a fun (and helpful!) conversation. That is CRAZY about the last name! I sort of want this guy to do my chart now, too!
