Out with the old; in with a dude!

The new year is going to be a good one. 2011 is going to bring me good things. I know this for a fact.

To wit: Seattle Rob is about to become D.C. Rob.

That's right. He's moving here.

Now, to temper all this a bit: The circumstances of his move are not ideal. He's had to say goodbye to a lot of friends and the dangerous-looking Gaelic sports team he plays for. He needs to get here, get settled and adjust to Eastern time. And though we've logged hours chatting online and spent a few days together, we both realize that's not quite enough to build a relationship on. 

So, Rob and I have agreed to be just friends for now, and possibly forever -- we don't want to put any undue pressure on the situation (though it would be a bald-faced lie to say there aren't expectations, on both ends), and being in each other's lives as friends is better than not being in each other's lives at all. We're taking a practical approach to this.

But as with Rob himself -- a guy who totally proves that there are a few good ones out there -- his impending move here proves to me that good things are on the way, in whatever form they may take.

Happy New Year!

(P.S. I broke down and made a Facebook page for my blog because most  people said it was not, in fact, douchey. You'll get blog updates as they happen, as well as invites to my happy hours and all my helpful charts. Please click here to like it!)

  3. @Tabs -- yeah, I reread this and it almost sounds like we're blowing each other off, and I swear that's not it... Rob, care to weigh in?

    @Steyny -- if you flew here, I would totally let you buy me a drink.

  8. "Good friends" = good news for those of us who enjoy the stories.

    "DomesticMeDC" just doesn't have the same ring to it...

  9. @freckledk -- I think he might already have the hookup! But I'll ask him.

    @PRSlaveDC -- fact. But I'm lonely too!

  10. What a nice surprise to ring in the new year - it's awesome that you and Rob will be closer together, regardless of whether your relationship with him remains a friendship or becomes anything more! :)

  11. yes yes, the rumors are true... I am currently heading east. Right now I am in Denver with some family and in a couple weeks I will be in the District (do people call it that, it would be cool if they did, maybe I'll start it)

    DateMeDC and I have talked and we are going with no expectations. what ever happens will and I am not going to try to call it from here.

    Moving to DC is a new page in a new chapter and I am going into it with an open mind.


    @freckledk -- I actually play Hurling... the sport that gaelic footballers wish they were cool enough to play. Regardless, both sports are awesome to watch and even better to play. Everyone should check out the DC Gaels!

    DC ETA is Jan. 18th
