This past Sunday after church we invited some girls over for dinner and games. After they left, the four of us sat around and got to talking about girls. We don’t do this often as a house, but when it does happen it’s usually a pretty good conversation.
The 4th of July was more than a week ago, but I’m still going to talk about fireworks. More specifically, Dave’s homemade fireworks. At 29, Dave is the oldest guy in the house, but easily has the most active dating life. He’s very athletic, eats healthy, and even drives a sweet car.
Tonight the conversation turned to the FOUR girls he’s currently seeing: Megan, Amber, Courtney, and Beth.
Of the four girls, Courtney is the one he’s most interested in. Problem: She has a boyfriend. They’ve been out a few times and Dave is totally into her, but he won’t kiss or make a move on her as long as she has a boyfriend. We talked about the fact that her boyfriend is a non-member and how it’s toxic to Dave if he continues to see her while she’s in a committed relationship. Dave reluctantly agreed that it’s probably a good idea not to see her while she still has a boyfriend. Who knows if he will follow through.
Amber is Dave’s “mean-time” girl. They go out, have fun, and even play a little tonsil hockey, but he’s not interested in dating her seriously. She claims to have just gotten out of a relationship and be ok with where they are, but her words and her actions speak different languages. Scott, Ian, and I think she just says she’s ok with them staying casual and dating other people because she thinks it will lead to something more. Dave doesn’t agree and sees it more as a “friends with benefits” situation. Time will tell.
Megan and Beth are just girls Dave has been out with and kissed in the past month. While Dave remains friends with them and see’s them on a regular basis, it’s obvious both wouldn’t mind playing the tongue tango with him again.
To say Dave is a ladies man is a bit of an understatement. He teaches Sunday School and his class is always packed full of ladies. Rarely a night goes by when he is not either out with a girl or there is a girl over for him at the house.
There’s even a phrase Dave uses when he wants us to distract the other girls/guests or just get a little friendly NCMO with a lady. “(insert name here), I want to show you this YouTube video. Come take a look.”
While we don’t know what is in store for Dave, we do know that he certainly hasn’t given up on dating or even slowed down. That’s a positive sign, as slowing down or giving up on dating seems to happen all too often to single LDS men as they approach their 30’s.
