The Dan-man and I went out to an all-you-dare-eat buffet for Sushi/Thai/Chinese, and it was actually quite good. Afterward, we swung by Crabby Jacks to solve his caffeine needs and Miranda got a pretty awesome tip ($5 after a bill for $0.69 - the coffee was free and I had a draft) - after we hung out a bit and chitty-chatted. I told him a bit about my beliefs regarding meeting someone for a lifelong commitment at this point (I suspect odds of meeting someone that I have chemistry with, a minimum of emotional baggage, and a mutual appreciation of one another to be very, very, very slim.) Explained to him why Magda wasn't a viable option, though she and I did have a nice time together. I honestly don't know if there are any wedding bells in my future, but If I were a betting man, I know that I'd opt for "not likely." I know good couples are out there... Dave & Cathi / GrayPumpkin & Katt are two of the best examples of two pairings as well-suited for one another for life that I can think of.
In the last decade, I've had the following serious relationships:
Lees - 6 monthsCome to think of it, I don't have any trouble getting dates... it's the longevity that needs work. Breakups are fairly even, an assortment of reasons, from a lack of trust to a lack of interest.
Eryn - 3 months
April - 4 months
Rachel - 6 months
CEJ - 2ish years, Almost 3 if you count on and off time
D - A bit over a year
Mel - 3 months
Magda - 5 months (9 minus the months where she was in Columbia)
Hair-wise, we've got a Blond x2, Brown x3, Black x2, and a RedheadI've been proposed to on two different occasions, and I honestly thought I'd end up with CEJ for life... she was the last one that gave me those sorts of feelings.
Tattoo-wise - 6 had ink.. some got it while I was with 'em.
Politics/Attitudes - Leftx2, Modx4, Rightx2
Readers - 4 yes, 4 no
eye color - Brown - 5 Hazel -1 Blue - 2
all were fairly chesty
Looking back, I do pretty well, for a serial monogamist with no vehicle of his own.
Dan got me a few very nice gifts for Christmas.... No Software this year. A used book on dinosaurs, a new copy of Pratchett's Last Hero, a t-shirt and a zip-up shirt (both too small, unfortunately), a carrying case for a digital camera/palmtop, and some jalepeno peanuts. We tried out the Peking House restauant, but it had a bad vibe, so we went to the one we're more fond of dining at.

This is boring... Yes, I'm falling,
but it's taking quite a while.
My destination is impending.
Might as well go out in style.
I put my arms out to the skies,
whistle a tune and close my eyes,
trying to briefly realize perpetual motion.
