Three’s a crowd

Okay I’m in somewhat of a dating dilemma and I can’t decide which the best course of action to take is or which path to turn to. Mainly because in my experience all roads lead to 1 Dumped Avenue, Singleton-ville!

Now let me get this straight, I’m the kind of girl who goes through stages, peaks and troughs, swings and round abouts et al… you catch my drift! I am by no means a man eater, I’ll go though months and months with nothing, not even a glimmer of bloke that throws any interest in my general direction.

Then all of a sudden after a drought (usually about a three month cycle) about three men come at once – there was a saying once about men and buses, you know!

Anywayyyyyy… It just so happens that I seem to be partaking in one of life’s peaks at this moment in time, rather than the Valley of the Trough (or the bottom of my pedestal that I so gallantly climbed to the top of, only to break my stiletto heel, fall to the bottom and land in a big pile of sh1t! It happens apparently!)

On overview, or synopsis if you will, follows:

The lovely Liam is back on the scene – after the bus incident he has still been contacting me to meet up (yeah I still judge him!). He’s been around for two years – we went through the ‘mate zone’ for a year and now I’m still no closer to gauging what we are. I do get the feeling that he wants to talk to me about something serious (due to his lack of desire to attend group functions, requesting we just catch up one-on-one). I have locked him in this weekend, so all shall be revealed, I hope!

Then there’s the guy that I was seeing casually, we touched on my issues with this here. The cute half Maltese, half English Aussie guy, remember? Well we’ve kept in touch and he is still yet to ask me out, not best practice! We’re in the zone where we just meet up on a night out, is there a way out of this zone? Or am I stuck in it forever as a product of my own making?

Then we’re left with Tim, a guy I really hit it off with on my travels over Xmas, he was my NY smooch (nothing else mind!). We stayed up all night on the lake putting the world to right. We also have a lot in common, his Dad’s originally from Liverpool (I went to uni in Liverpool and heart it!) his mum is also a Brit of the Southern variety, she’s from Chelsea. Again he’s an Aussie born and bred, that lives in Sydney! He also has the British banter added for good measure!  He too is yet to ask me out, we have the whole flirting situation happening via e-mail and text, but still nothing, nada, diddley squat!!

So as you can see, yes there are three guys on the ‘potential date’ zone, but none of them have made that step into the ‘date zone’. I believe it is quite scary for some guys, but seriously, I’m getting very bored of waiting to be asked.

Now I need your assistance here, as my judgement is all clouded by the fact that they’re cute,  funny, surfers, rugby players, like a drink, got loadsa mates etc etc I need someone’s view from the outside.

Do I wipe the slate clean and start again with a guy that is willing to take the giant leap for mankind into the (sshhhhhhhhhhhh don’t say it too loud or it might scare them) – ‘date zone’, or do I persevere and let fate run its course, if it’s meant to be it will??
