Another Matt

I have not done any exercise since my run Monday morning, unless you count running to the bathroom. I'm down 4 lbs since Monday... but not in a good way. A little flu bug is going around the office, I think.

Back to the X-Files.

Matt #2 is not really worth mentioning, but I will. I met him at a work event. I was planning a huge meeting for a very large company. The meeting kept growing and before you know it I am the "producer" of this 'show.' Mind you, I'm an event planner, not a producer. We only had 3 days to finalize all the show details - we worked 8am to midnight each day. There was a lot blood, sweat, tears and curse words (on my part) but with the help of Matt #2, we somehow pulled off this fantastic meeting/show. Honestly I could not have done it without him.

We were instantly attracted -maybe that is why he went so overboard to help me. He was tall, dark and kinda cute. And his take-charge attitude is what attracted me to him. A date was set up for the next weekend with the help of Spicy Latina coworker. We dated for a while, he took me to a lame restaurant in a strip mall, he wrote a song for me, made me dinners, etc.

Funny side note - this was right when I just started to lose weight. He wanted to order pizza one night and I objected. This was our first little tiff. He said I didn't know how to enjoy life because I didn't eat pizza. What the hell does that mean? Now it's an inside joke with my friends whenever we want pizza - we say "Let's go enjoy life."

I found out is was a lot YOUNGER than me. Not good in my book. I had a hard time getting over that. I also found out that he was separated -divorce not even filed yet. And that he's only had sex with ONE person, his ex-wife. I'm sorry, but I don't feel like being a "teacher" in that department, if ya know what I mean.

It ended one night when I drank WAY too much and sorta flipped out on him. I don't know what that was about. I think I just figured that it wasn't going anywhere. So I'm sure he has a story about the slutty, crazy, drunk girl that he dated after his divorce. We're "friends" now and he moved away.

I'm saving the best for last - Matt #3. Stay tuned.

Oh silly strip mall restaurant Matt. That's rough. One guy wanted to take me out to dinner - I think he suggested Red Robin. And I said, "I don't do chain restaurants." I thought that would get me out of it - but basically he fell in love with bossy me. That was painful. No matter how mean I was - he wouldn't leave. Ick. He's married now to someone else!

Sarah said...

Totally loving these XFile posts... :)

I hope that you've sworn off Matt's from this point forward.

"Let's go enjoy life." That is a classic!

I can't believe Matt 3 is the best one! He's gonna beat road rage??? Can't wait!

Also, what was the song like that this guy wrote for you? You can't throw a fact like that into the post and then not give us at least ONE juicy lyric from it!!!

This is way better than television. (All the moreso because I have a million Matts in my life-- including the husband!)

The rookie syndrome is the worst, so good call on stearing clear of that land mine.

the gazelle said...

oooh - freshly divorced rookie in the sack? that can't lead anywhere good. :)

Amber said...

The Matt stories are hilarious. Can't wait to hear more!

I HATE it when my boyfriend wants to order/make fattening foods when I'm trying to lose weight. He's been getting better about it but every once in awhile he still does it!

Carolina John said...

that guy sounds interesting. at least he was calm and didn't throw things or drive away from you or something stupid like that.

sorry you got the stupid flu thing too. i've been fighting it for 2 weeks now.

RunToFinish said...

Lovin' the ex stories. hahahaha!

RunnerGirl said...

"Saving the best for last"? OMG, it gets worse than cussing at old ladies and freaking out over pizza?!?

Runner Leana said...

"I also found out that he was separated -divorce not even filed yet."

Oh sister...I can totally relate on that one...

I'm loving the X-Files series!

TinaGirl said...

I am loving the sequence of Matt. Why couldn't school be as fun as P.O.M. X: The history of Matt?

What the heck is up with men? are they all MORONS? I think they might be.

teacherwoman said...

Interesting. Lovin' the X-Files!

Bwah!! It's funny. The more I read, the more similar our dating histories seem...

I also dated a young, inexperienced dude for a time. I'm sure he thought I was a slut. Maybe that's why he liked me so much back then?

Alisa said...

The Matt saga continues...how many Matt's are then again? jk

Brianna said...

Sorry to hear about the flu bug (all 4 of us had it 2 weeks ago - I lost 5 lbs. in one night).

I never had much luck with Matts, either. That's why I married the older brother of a Matt. :)
