Men paid on 26/31 dates. Three of my “dates” involved no money, and I paid for myself on two of my dates.

Prior Expectations: After reviewing my blog entries, I divided my prior expectations into three categories… Excited, Indifferent, and Not excited.

  • Excited: 14 of my 31 dates
  • Indifferent: 14 of my 31 dates
  • Not Excited: 3 of my 31 dates

Date Diary: Here a few behavioral trends.

  • 8 of my 31 dates involved men driving me somewhere
  • 7 of my 31 dates involved physical touch (I’m not talking about hugging)
  • 6 of my 31 dates involved kissing

Takeaways: The odds are NOT in my favor…

  • Never Texted me after the first date: 14 of the 29 men
  • Texted me after 2nd date but never initiated plans: 9 of the 29 men
  • I turned down a second date offer: 4 of the 29 men
