Matchmaker, Matchmaker!

The following is an exchange I had today with my cousin Vickie. I haven’t spoken with her in months and suddenly through my mom I found out that she needed to talk to me. I had no idea what it was about and planned to call her tonight, but she found me on-line today and this is what was said:

V: are you here
Maddog: No, I am here.
V: lol
V: now i have a question for you
M: I’m in NYC if that’s what you are asking.
V: no
V: i know where you are
M: I’ve been out the last two nights so haven’t been able to call, was going to call tonight.
M: what’s the question.
V: are you single
M: LOL
M: are you trying to fix me up with someone?
V: no kidding

V: yes
M: yes, why do you ask?
V: i want you to meet someone
M: who might that be?
V: his name is H.

M: where does he live?
V: now that could be a problem
M: I see.

V: new mexico
M: why do you want to fix us up?
M: how do you know him?
V: because he is a great person
V: i worked with him
M: what do we do about the fact that we live 2,000 miles away from each other.
V: i dont know about all that yet
V: but id you two agree
V: you can work that out
M: is this what the phone call was about?
V: yes
M: and I thought you wanted me to go to Vegas with you.
V: he is from texas
M: so can i work on this

This went on for about 3o minutes with her trying to fix me up with her friend. There are a number of reasons this is ridiculous. First I don’t know if I trust her taste. Her choice of husbands (yes, 3 in fact) have not been the best. Second, he lives on the other side of the country. It will make having a first date rather difficult. Third, it scares me she even thought of me. I’ve only ever had one conversation with her about being gay. It was 3 summers ago at a 4th of July family picnic. The entire conversation was about Kenny Chesney being gay and how I would like it if he was. That was it. Haven’s spoken with her about it again.

I do have to admit that I agreed to email him and just say hello. I figured what the hell. What could it hurt. I don’t expect it to go anywhere but if it’ll make her happy then what the hell. So I sent off a simple hello email today, said hello and left it at that. He emailed back and said hello. I’ll keep you posted on the eventual outcome.

You gotta love my family!

    New Mexico…it’s not old… hehehe… what can it hurt to have another email pal… and usually those who have the worst choice in partners for themselves, usually do a better job of picking partners for thier friends… I mean, what else are you going to do the last few months in Iowa?? Happy Thursday!

    Happy Thurdsay. Who dates a guy named “H”. They should give him a real name was Howard, Hank, Harmony, or something instead of just H.

    LOL

    Hey, look at it this way…at least she thought of you. And like everyone else has already said…if nothing else, you’ll have another email pal. šŸ™‚

    Every so often, a student will ask me what my “type” is. Invariably, they know of a gay guy and think they should play matchmaker.

    Go for it! Who says he won’t want to move to NYC? My best friend keeps trying to fix me up with her doctor. I think she’s trying to find a way to get me to move 3000 miles back to CA. Hey, I did it once for a man 20 years ago. Never say never.
