JDMFJCS June!!!!

Garnering 61% of the vote, this month's dating adventures will hereby be deemed Just Date Me for Jesus Christ's Sake June!

(Or, JDMFJCS June for short. Apologies to any holy rollers who might find that name offensive. It's all in good fun, I promise.)

Here's hoping it works.

Because I've got a busy week ahead. Which will either lead to a lot of interesting boy interactions or a lot of disappointing ones:

  • Tuesday: rescheduled lunch soiree with The Ram. When we initially made these plans weeks ago (after we had run into each other about a hundred times in two weeks), I was really excited. But the more time has gone on (and we haven't seen each other), the more I've got a weird feeling about it. But sometimes gut instincts are wrong, right?

  • Thursday: a political fundraiser with my aunt, who is hellbent on fixing me up with some guy that she knows is going to be at this thing. I am not sure how I feel about this potential set-up, seeing as a.) the last guy she wanted to fix me up with 110% looked like David Crosby and b.) she is not good at taking "no" for an answer. (From me.)

  • Saturday: bachelorette party!!!! And you know what shows up when there is a gaggle of girls around? That's right: a gaggle of guys.
I also had a couple of other random boy interactions this weekend, but nothing worth writing about. (At least, not yet.) However, I WILL say that the two guys who expressed interest were 11 years apart in age. Whoa, Always a Bridesmaid. Way to pick an age demo and stick with it. ;)

So what do you think? Are you betting on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday for the best boy story? Any of you have a gut feeling?

this is a great name only if you want to appear desperate and stay lonely.

Anon -- it's also a great name if you don't know how to take a joke. Jeez.

I vote for Saturday...but only because I'm the bride-to-be and want you to have an amazing time, and even better stories! Let this bach go down in history as the night ABA met her man! Hmmm...or maybe the RAM will show up that night too - he's always been like one of my girlfriends - in a very manly way of course!

Rena Barbara Jeana said...

I enjoy the name! :)
Coincidentally I felt that way three weeks ago when I got back together with an ex and he just wanted to "casually date." Who knows what that means - so I stopped talking to him completely.

I vote for Saturday. Bachelorette parties always attracts fun guys. Have fun!

Always a Bridesmaid said...

Anon -- well, it's your nite, so if you say so... ;)

Rena -- WTF? You can't "casually date" someone after you "really dated" them. Good for you.

Anonymous said...

there's another phrase for "casually date," but this is a PG blog ;-)

Anonymous #1 is probably the saboteur! I LOVE the JDMFJCS June!! It's hilar!

I think we should definitely go w/ the bride-to-be's request on finding you a man on her special nite!


alexa @clevelandsaplum said...

im going with the RAM date for sure. i think it's going to be RAMTASTIC!

p.s. we need to schedule lunch.

Always a Bridesmaid said...

Anon -- I enjoy that you called the blog PG... even after the "blumpkin" link last week. ;)

Chill -- you ready to be a wingman on Saturday?

Alexa -- RAMTASTIC? Love it! Email me about lunch, you woman-about-town.

I say Saturday. There has to be some benefit to being a bridesmaid, right?

Always a Bridesmaid said...

eyegirl -- wow, everyone is saying Saturday. I better get the self-tanner and perfume ready! :) (BTW, I'm actually not a bridesmaid for this wedding... just a guest!)

Anonymous said...

whoops. forgot about that. Ok, PG-13. Think "Old School" and "The Hangover."

Piper said...

I would say definitely NOT Saturday. Granted, I haven't been to a ton of bachelorette parties, but guys tend to say that approaching a bunch of women is really hard. I'm going with the Ram. Why not vote for something that already has some potential? :) Have a great week with it all though!

MG said...

Piper got it totally right. Although, being invited out should FEEL a lot different than cold-call approaching- that's on you though. Either way, you might not be giving him a fair chance under those circumstances, especially if he gets in his head about being considerate about yours, which is when the more intelligent type guys make "mistakes" labeled unnattractive, un-manly, etc.

Could be an awesome test for him though or you could see him really work the crowd and be amazed too...depends on the risk you want to put into it.

1 on 1 is king though, always.

Always a Bridesmaid said...

Piper -- touche... if I were a guy, I'd probably stay away from a huge group of girls too!

MG -- I'm not talking about inviting anyone (including The Ram) to the bachelorette party... just wondering who I might meet while we're out on the town for our GNO.

MG said...

bollocks. i mis-read your post. what I said now barely makes sense contextually... but worth keeping in mind should you ever think to invite 1 guy out to hang with a group of your friends.

Invite Blogdad!!!

Always a Bridesmaid said...

Invite blogdad?!?!? Ummm... can you say cock block? ;)

slopmaster said...

your "gut" is you being nervous about the date...

to take away nervousness don't wear underwear on the date... works every time.

Writing Our Own Rules said...

LOL.. I love the name!

Hmmm, I'm having a hard time deciding about which day... Well, I guess I'm going to go with Saturday night as well! :)

I love Bachelorette parties!!! I can't help it. No matter what, you will have a great time that night. Here's to hoping you meet an amazing guy!

Blessings, M

The BEST story? I vote bachelorette party... but most successful? I'm thinking today.

Good luck, love!

Hey...look who's back. The blog didn't go well, MG?

MG said...

@ Anon-

I dunno really, i started it in a near rage one Friday, realized on various levels it wasnt worth my time (I actually am quite busy with my new company and other activities), didn't post again, then deleted the whole thing like a week later and moved on....I was likely to end up saying some nasty things about the "haters" and really, then I'd just be the one with the problem and I'd rather be a gentleman...I hate hassles.

I never went away, I just didn't see any posts that warranted a comment (perhapsd i'm trying to be courteous to the norms of the blog?) til the other day.

btw, I like how the ONE person who makes a comment at me also just happens to be an Anon...chickenshit.


Chuck said...

MG -

My bad, dude. That was bad form. I should've posted that comment as myself. I apologize.

What I won't apologize for is the substance of the comment. Nobody minds comments on a blog. In fact, they are usually fun, and add to a dialogue. Unfortunately, what you add to the party are perennially off-topic comments that are interesting to you, and you alone. We tune into this blog to read about AAB. Not AAB + the MG spin.

So with that being said, I have two suggestions:

1. Maintain your own blog for more than 30 seconds. Hell, I might read it for the guy perspective myself.


2. Make damn sure your comments are on topic.

You seem like a nice enough dude, so I'm trying to be as civil as possible.

P.S. I'm fairly sure we can rise above fourth grade and talk to each other politely without dropping words like "chickenshit" right?

Peace out...

MG said...


Thanks, I appreciate your apology. And yes, now we can certainly be civil and mature.

I'll see about doing my own blog. I'm having a slow day today but other than that i've been ridiculously busy lately so...
