So, Lisa called today and said that my next match is a person named Jerry. She didn't tell me his age or anything else, only that he lives in Jersey. So, she wants to set up the meeting in the city. I told her I was not comfortable with that and she mostly ignored me going on and on about the valet parking. I don't know. My stance on the subject is why should I drive all the way into the city just to get rejected? I mean, how is this guy going to be any different from the men that I have met recently? So, I told her I am available June 23 and that is basically it for the month of June. Then, I got to thinking about it some more tonight and sent her the following email:
I've given much thought to our conversation earlier today, and I am just not comfortable
driving by myself into the city. Being new here from out of state, I am not familiar enough
with these places to drive my big SUV down there, alone. I had no problem driving all the way
to Quakertown for the last date because it was off the turnpike, but I just can't do the city.
Also, I'm not sure that it would be a good match for me with Jerry. I have a serious fear of
bridges. I can not drive over that bridge. I have anxiety attacks when I go over bridges that
tall. I can not help it. I can't deal with it.
If Jerry would like to meet me outside of the city somewhere or even in King of Prussia, I
am open to that. But, I just can't go into the city right now. Please bear this mind for future
dates as well. I look forward to meeting my new matches!
She'll probably think I'm a nut job because I can't drive over that Ben Franklin bridge. It is a very very tall bridge and I am deathly afraid of heights. I break out in a cold sweat and panic. It's not pretty. And, there are parts of Philly that are pretty scary and with my sense of direction, I am not going to do it right now. Turn me loose on a Saturday night in downtown Philly by myself, Lord only knows what will happen to me. lol. Maybe she'll just quit and refund my money. Fat chance.
