Well, I have just come upon a new crevasse in the dating world. I blame Al Gore, the Internet, and this whole technology thing.

Last week I went out for drinks with this very, VERY hot guy. We'll call him Michelangelo. WE met on Cupid emailed a bit and since I was going out of town for a little over a week I thought it would be nice to meet before I left instead of trying to drag out the email and texting with an unknown entity. We've texted a bit since I've been at my parents for the holidays and we chatted a brief bit today.

BUT! I have since gotten a text asking to FaceTime later tonight!

I don't FaceTime. I think I've done it twice, maybe three times. And all of those are with my parents or sister, one by accident. I recently group FaceTimed a GREAT friend in Texas with a couple of others that were all in town for the holidays. That is what I consider an awesome use of it.  Not to chat up a guy I just met. It's not that I don't want to talk to him, I just don't think he's ready for the "real" me. And by real I mean sans makeup, in pjs, hair pulled back, mowing down cookies. I refuse to put makeup on for a phone call. It's sweet that he wants to but it was one date, I'm on vacation, and I just don't think now is the time for it. Maybe when we're in three months and I'm traveling for work for 2 weeks.

For now I haven't answered the text. I haven't even officially read it.

UPDATE: I felt I needed to answer him and wrote, "I'm not a huge fan of FaceTime. I'm really sorry but can explain more in person when we meet up on Sunday." Waiting on reply.

UPDATE 2: He says he understands and that it's cool. But texting never conveys sarcasm well, so who knows. I did reply with a "thank you. You're very understanding. smiley face"

Yeah I think Facetime is for family or connecting with friends. Or, as you put it, t hree months into a relationship. My first reaction was "ugh he is going to show you his penis" but I am jaded.

HAHAHA!! I didn't even think of that. If it was me, I'd want to take a picture so I could pick the most flattering.
