I don’t really understand where the cliché “a rolling stone gathers no moss” came from. Are there stones somewhere that are constantly rolling and therefore are moss-less? Well, I do understand its implication. There are some people that are constantly on the move and therefore have a vibrant spirit. I know because I am one of those people. I bet by now you have guessed that my date Karen is one of those people as well.

What better sign of an adventurous person than going on a roller coaster filled date? It was a perfect day to visit Knott’s Berry Farm. The weather was perfect and there were no lines on any of the rides. We were constantly on the move and were able to maximize the park and go on pretty much everything.

Being constantly on the move may have inspired a lot of our conversation. We talked about our ambitions and all the things that we have done. I told her about my idea to make a musical that appeals to men. She told me that she has a list of 30 things that she wanted to accomplish before her next birthday. Our date helped her accomplish one of those 30 goals (glad I can be of service). Then she explained all the places that she has been. She made me a little jealous she had been to Ireland and even gave me a little info to help me accomplish the same thing one day.

After we were worn out from going on all the rides it was time to eat. Dinner was pretty tasty and filling. There was some good conversation and we finished our meal and kept talking for about a half hour. We talked about the popular misconception people have about us, work, and our living situations. The only thing that cut our conversation short was that I was starting to feel sick. Blasted! So we left the restaurant quickly to find a CVS to cure my stomach of the greasy chicken I had just eaten. One of the perks of going out with an adventurous person is that they are really resourceful. In no time we found a CVS and she pointed me to the best tasting tums.

Soon my tummy was feeling better and I was ready to go. By that I mean I was ready to chill and watch a movie - True Grit. How we fit all this into one date I do not know. Then again there is no time to waste being a rolling stone, so what else would you expect?  Speaking of rolling stones, maybe I could “get some satisfaction” from a second date.

Kristin said...

They just seem to fit! Comfortable, cute couple, equally yoked in adventure, ambition and experiences. I loved the rolling stone theme in Ricks comments, shows he's a bit poetic. What a sweetie!

Kim said...

Sweet! I like tall and pretty!

Nikmel said...

Awe! Such a fun date! I wish it could have been a double date so I could have gone! ;) ha ha

Looks like you were very comfortable around each other! *wink wink* Rick, you definitely need to see if there will be any "satisfaction" on a 2nd date. You two were so adorable together!

Idk Karen, maybe you’re not looking for neither superman nor batman.... maybe a "Buckman" is all you need! ;)

Aww, fun date! I'm happy they held hands!

The Dark Family said...

Super cute! I like her . . . maybe that's just because I'm a fellow Arizonan! :) Go Karen!

Stacie said...

ahh i smiled the whole way through their date! Rick has a sweet ride! Karen , you guys are super cute together! Best of luck, I hope you get a 2nd date!

Geoff said...

She's cute and fun (Also, she's tall. Huge points there). Rick, should you happen to be unwise and not choose this one, it's not that I'm trying to pick up the pieces the hearts you break, but, well, we're friends, so help a guy out, k? Spasiba.

Tori said...

I love and adore Karen! It looked/sounded like you both had a lot of fun together. I definitely think a second date should happen. fo sho!

jujubees said...

Buckster if you can snag this super talented fun and spiritually classy cat YOU will be a lucky man!!!

Tamara Lyn said...

Aaaaaw. I love it. :) You seem so compatible!!! :D Good luck with that second date! :D :D :D

April said...

I like her. She seems really down to earth.... 2nd date material for sure!

Randy Cliff Peterson said...

This is a good fit for him. This is who I would go for if I was him. She seems to be mature enough to know what to really look for in a man, she is gutsy and fun enough to go on a roller coaster, and she's got the Looks to top it off. Looks like a winner!

Katie said...

She's my favorite!! They look great together!

TRUE ESTHETICS said...

Karen you are so great on camera! I haven't ever seen this before. Love ya and hope things work out for you.

AE Jones said...

Darling. They DO seem to fit really well. I love these girls' date ideas!

Melissa said...

Ok, Karen is my former roommate, so I can vouch for her character and class. She was easy to live with, and not dramatic. And hey, she let me ride in her Lexus, so what can I say? ;)

This date has received TheSinglesWard stamp of approval.

Better watch out Bukkman, she's from our homestate.

The Jake said...

How did Karen not make the 2nd round? She seems like a champ Rick...but then again, tough decisions have to be made on this ride.
