Let’s be honest all that any of us are looking for when dating is Chemistry. We analyze, theorize and critique everything in dating to death, but after all is said and done we are just looking for something that we can’t even really explain. I remember talking about one of my failed relationships with one of my buddies. We talked until our brains hurt from analyzing what went wrong. His final thought, “Everything just doesn’t add up to being stoked.” There is a guys deep thoughts on dating. Chemistry, stoked, or whatever you want to call it, I have it with Melanie.
Our date was actually a last minute change of plans to make a movie for our date. In some weird way I think it was inspired. My friend Charan Prabhakar (www.lastmans.com) was filming the date and suggested that we do that. So quickly we came up with the idea to make a spoof trailer on romantic movies. We spoofed three movies mainly. One thing that blew me away about Melanie was her ability to just go with the flow. I mean getting drenched in the cold for a dramatic scene or rolling around in uncomfortable weeds would throw most high maintenance girls off. Not Mel.
One of my favorite things about girls is when they know how to socialize. On both our dates Mel made good friends with the camera people. Did I mention both camera people are really good friends of mine? Another plus is that my friends loved her too. At points I thought Charan was as excited for us as we were ourselves. In fact it was Charan that kept pointing out how inspired he thought our date was. Things just kept falling into place.
The date was amazing. I couldn’t have had more fun. Oh and you may have noticed I got to kiss her a lot. Maybe a little intense for a normal second date but who cares cause it was some good kissing. There was definitely chemistry in our kisses so we didn’t have to act for that at all.
At the end of the date my place was a mess from so many wardrobe changes. As if I wasn’t impressed enough Melanie just started cleaning it all up and throwing all the wet clothes in the drier. Who is this girl?
While Melanie seems to be flawless and a great match for me, the song “Every Rose has its Thorn” plays in my head! Thank you Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison and fellow reality dating show person, for those tragic words. Melanie is from Ohio and has plans to start school in Utah… “How is that going work?” Hopefully, I can pick some of those thorns off, write a new song, and one up Mr. Michaels.
