In Alex's words...

I was excited to see Ashley again for a second date. I was especially relieved that I didn't have to plan it this time. After all, our first date was so serendipitous that I wouldn't want to test fate twice by planning it myself. Unfortunately Ashley’s elaborate plans fell through and things didn’t work out quite like they had on our first date. She had intended for us to have a private session at the Flowrider, an artificial wave that you surf, but it broke that day. Ashley came up with a backup plan that ended up being better in my book. I just wanted something low-key and relaxing. That's exactly how it turned out.

Ashley lined up a Vespa for us to borrow from her friend Stacy Zimmerman. I picked her up and drove us to De la Cruz Bistro for dinner. The Vespa ride provided a good excuse to have her arms around me. I liked it. Dinner conversation was good. I saw again the reasons that Ashley intrigued me on the first date.

I was happy to get back on the Vespa for a ride to Ashley’s former Bishop’s house. Despite the warm weather, riding around was really fun. The pool, tramp and a little put-put at the Bishop’s house were just perfect.

I enjoyed spending time with Ashley again. I like the way she lives, it really fits with how I live; down to how she is with her money. I was impressed. She’s cute, she gives a good hug, I even like her hands. She’s nice to hold. On our first date when the film crew wasn’t around we danced in the park for a few minutes. She moves well, she just fits. Ashley is the kind of girl that deserves the best things that money can't buy.

At the end of the date I found myself wanting to take this girl out again and again. I am not sure how confident I feel about having a serious relationship with Ashley but I hope she chooses me in the end so we can continue to see where this goes. I really like Ashley.

It's time to look and see what's behind door #2, Ashley. Move, along... there's nothing to see here.

Cristin said...

Sorry, not a match. I was shocked you went on a 2nd date with him actually.

russell and joanna said...

Wow, was not expecting to see this guy again. Leo D and I must be thinkin' the same thing here.

crush said...

I agree with Leo......move along. And as a side note, of all things to focus on during the recap of the movie, they chose that dumb joke? Seriously? How about more focus on what they're really talking about?

crush said...

I was shocked for a second date as well.

leandparkermakes3 said...

I'm not seeing it. AT. ALL.

Lizzy said...

I was surprised to see Alex go on a second date. He seems so unorganized. It seems like their conversation is on the boring side. I don't believe he will be the final one.

Madison said...

So confused Ashley seemed so bored on their first date and totally turned off by Alex...bring back Matt!!!!

Caity said...

I was very surprised too.

Tami Casper said...

Not a match made in heaven. :-(

LAURA said...

Pretty lame they didn't wear helmets.

Becky said...

I think she picked him for a 2nd date since he was her second to last 1st date so maybe he was still in town. There definitely was no chemistry.

Kim Messick said...

Well, I liked it! All except the joke! NOT funny. Sorry!
But I could see that they were having a good time anyway.

Diana said...

I agree with Kim..why do people persist in thinking jokes like that are funny? Gross.

Shauna said...

weird. I thought the date went well. She has always seemed very guarded on the dates and I felt like this one she was less so. Not sure I am a fan of this relationship but I think the 2nd dates are going to be more entertaining.

Em-Cat said...

Props to Ashley for wanting to see if there was more there. I know the date was edited, but I thought it was nice and they were comfortable with each other. I think y'all need to give Alex a little more credit...he seems like a good guy.

Andrea said...

Laura I'm with you. Why weren't there any helmets?

The Herd Mom said...

Helmets? Sure, maybe they're not as attractive as hair blowing in the wind, but please be more responsible about something that saves lives.

Annie said...

I'm one of your biggest fans, BUT there are soooo many things wrong with this date. With all the people looking out for them didn't anyone think to edit out his racist joke or her insensitive remark? (Shaking my head.)

Anonymous Egg Donor said...

@Annie: What if they nailed the edit on the head. Meaning, maybe the staff wanted to show the audience how wrong Alex is for Ashley. Did you ever think about that?

I am LoW said...

I don't know what is more offensive, his joke or her saying, "Am I retarded for not getting the joke?"
