Read Tip Top Tuesday posts.Quick Recap [The last post I wrote about Top was last month. I finally gave the guy who I'd been referencing a name and it was Dan. I didn't want to give him a name because he's not really in a position to ever end up in a relationship with Top. But he is kind of important in her romantic journey, so he gets a name. He's certainly more important than all the other guys I've mentioned in her life]
This Dan guy is important. And what's better is that he's safe. By being unavailable, there is no chance she can get her heartbroken. They could never ever be together.
And also, she wasn't able to ignore him like she could most guys. Once the guys try and get to close, Top would just be done with them.
But Dan isn't some friend of a friend. Top sees him quite often, so she couldn't just pretend he didn't exist. And that fostered a friendship that had nothing to do with an attraction or desire.
Oh, and Dan isn't really her type physically. He's not the type of guy she'd normally be drawn to. She sees that as a good thing because if something hasn't worked before, why keep repeating that behavior?
But there is another guy I want to mention. This other guy does not get a name. He's just some guy she's been dating. By dating, I mean going on dates with.
This guy is there for fun purposes only it seems. But I'm amused by him and I wanted to mention him only to tell a funny story.
Top has work things in the evening occasionally. It's either for her job or for networking or whatever. But this guy she's dating is super spontaneous.
He'll just call or pop up and suggest they hang out. Top is pretty spontaneous, so she'll just go with is usually.
But one evening, she had a work thing to get ready for and No Name Date Guy pops up wanting to hang out. She figures she has time to spend with him and still get ready so she says yes.
Then suddenly it's time to get ready for the work thing. Top tells No Name Date Guy his time is up and suddenly she has less than an hour to get ready and on her way.
The work thing she was going to had an odd theme. She could either wear Western clothes or cocktail clothes. She and I were on the phone for like 35 minutes trying to sort it out.
Normally, Top would have that sorted much sooner and been on her way. This No Name Date Guy is a bit of a distraction, but in a fun way.
I know what you're thinking, did she go cocktail or Western? Even though the lure of riding a mechanical bull was strong, Top ended up going cocktail.
