Kennedy's selfie:dating postSo what do you do when someone you dated a couple of times decides to ask out your co-worker?  I’m serious.  This just happened.  Here is the story of Easy Rider.

Easy Rider ,found me on POF.  He was a nice fellow, good smile, single dad, had a job and a motorcycle – all good things.  We chatted a few times and decided to meet in real life.  We went bowling.  It was fun, he was charming, he gave me flowers and a bone for my dog.  He gave me a short kiss and we went our separate ways.  I knew we didn’t’ have a love connection, but he didn’t.  Like a dog with a bone he came after me.  And let me tell you, he was one determined man.  After a few months of dodging his advances, he finally realized we were just going to be friends – or as he tells people he was “friend-zoned” and all was right with the world.

Fast forward to last week.  I was out of work for over a month as I was on strict vocal rest.  We had an amazing woman named Angie C fill in for me and upon my return we decided to keep her around for a while. I love her, she’s hilarious.  Last Tuesday she asked if I knew this guy.  I said “yes that’s Easy Rider”, we have dated.  I guess he had found her on Facebook and liked what he saw.  She asked me if I would mind if they went out.  I honestly didn’t know what to say.  There were very specific reasons he was friend-zoned and I felt like I needed to tell her these reasons.  But I didn’t.  Why didn’t I?  Seems like a shitty thing to do, but at the same time she seemed determined to go out with him no matter what so I gave the pair my blessing and sent them off into the world.  He promised not to take her where he took me on our date.  What a gentleman.

The date happens tomorrow.  I’m going to guess the friend-zoning will start the day after.

I realize I might bring some of this on myself, but I seriously walked into the dark side this time.

Salt and I were waiting in my car to go into an appearance and I got a ping on my POF profile.  So I read it and it was well written, funny, and seemingly real.  The holy trifecta!  I showed it to Salt, my best girlfriend, to get his opinion.  He had the same thought as me, a normal boy, and we decided to bring it to the program.  Like I said, I might have brought this on myself.  Here is a brief snippet of what he said…
