Clean cut love Photo: Getty Images. I pondered my phone, debating whether or not to respond to a text from Ad Man. This was a very nice guy working in advertising FYI who had been no more than a friend for years because that was the only capacity in which he had been available to me.
We were never single at the same time until now, when a mutual friend connected us.
At one time I thought we had a spark but what now? Would he even be interested in me? Let me know what works. For my usual pre-date analysis I grabbed my plain-speaking gal-pal Madge and we went to bother our other sister-in-dating, Joan, at work. Her office is in fact, a famous salad bar so we just stood at the end of her counter shouting at her between orders. I want an ad man too! Yes, my friends were quite enthusiastic about my possible prospect.
I had no idea if Ad Man would be interested in me. He had known me through various stages of my life and had always complimented whatever aspiration was driving me. Looking back, it seemed to be a time when there were a million things I said I wanted to do, but never actually got around to doing any of them. Remembering what I drank was easier than remembering my behavior. Back then though, his faith in me was always touching and whatever the case now, he wanted to meet up.
What agency is he with? We were going crazy over men in advertising as if they were rockstars. The original plan was to meet up with Ad Man and see whatever was playing at The Paris the day after Thanksgiving. I was nervous entering the bar. He was as cute as I remembered, even cuter now that he was available. Trying to cover as much as possible since so much time had passed. He was now living in Los Angeles, but would come to New York frequently for work and his family.
I could completely relate to that. The past year had been full of more downs than ups for me. He had just gotten out of a long-term relationship. We grazed over that topic lightly. We could have shared some war stories but Nice guy wants sex wanted to keep things fun and upbeat and he seemed to be on the same track. He went to the restroom and I checked my phone, of course my girlfriends wanted updates and were texting like crazy.
It was so easy to spend time with him and he made me laugh. Maybe our mutual friend, Hilary, was right in suggesting we meet up. Years ago we would have gone to another bar. I never went out much after getting sober and being married. It would soon be revealed that I was a homebody, a far cry from what he was used to from me.
Would that come off as unsexy? We hailed a cab and went to my apartment and actually watched a movie. Was I too forward in having him over? Did he even like me than more as a friend? Then I realized as we laid on my bed, fully dressed, watching the movie that we were pretty close to each other. Making me even more nervous and yes, optimistic. Maybe I would get a kiss out of this. When the movie ended, he looked at me and we kissed. After a good twenty minute makeout session, we laughed. Do nice guys just do it—the sex approach—differently? As much as I really liked this and was excited that he was respectful and funny and so easy to talk to, it all felt a little precarious.
No-one knew better than me that attempting romance with a friend could end in disaster. As optimistic as I tried to be, it was hard not to worry about things going wrong. Maybe that could change now, but the self-saboteur in me was preparing for the worst.
