...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?
