Ghost Of Boyfriends Past: A.C.

Did you think I ran out of stories?
I am truly hurt. What do you take me for? Some sort of quitter!?

No. Just because I have ran into a few duds... does not mean I am about ready to give up. NO! I will keep dating duds until I find the king! wait... that's not right is it?

Either way.. I will continue to provide you with entertaining stories. 
I apologize for the delay. And so it goes:

His name: A.C.
The Good: Musician, funny, tan, friend of a friend. 
The Bad: ohhhh boy...

I met A.C while I was visiting a friend in Seattle. I needed a little getaway and some good shopping. What I found was a cute boy from some spanish speaking country (yes this comes into play later)

Girls, don't lie, you know you can't resist a man who speaks another language. 
I'm telling you...it's all sorts of attractive.

So... we hung out the weekend I was in Seattle. Took a few silly pictures. And had a first kiss that was pretty stinkin' sweet. It might have been in a closet. Sound weird? You're probably right.

No... I 'm not going to put a black bar over his eyes. 
And yes, I always make ugly faces. Always. 

We stayed in touch for the next few weeks that is how it remained. We kept in touch and saw each other when we could. It was like a long distance relationship... but not.
Here is where the NOT comes in. 

We decided we would meet in Leavenworth for the weekend. A touristy-city that is fairly in between where we both live. We would do some wine tastings and just enjoy the cute little city for a few days.

Honestly, I don't remember much about the weekend (that's how memorable it was) BUT what I do remember:
I paid for dinner AND our hotel room. ummm...
WHAT?
Trust me, this wasn't a love shack type of deal... 
a. I'm not that type of girl and
b. He was/is EXTREMELY religious.
not. gonna. happen.

So.. I just chalked it up to bad manners. I really don't know what I was thinking. I was honestly just smitten by his skills on the guitar. Pathetic, I know.
We all have our weaknesses.
He actually sang ANY song that I wanted in spanish.
Que: Hero by Enrique Eglasias.
Yeah... I'm that girl.

So here was the final straw.
New Years Eve.
It was sort of a last minute thing. We decided I would fly over, spend a few days and meet some of his friends. If nothing else.. an adventure it was.
Did I mention I paid for my flight? Yes... a flight that HE offered to pay for.
mmhmm.

New Years was fine...nothing spectacular... hung out at a friends house. Had a few drinks and watched the fireworks on TV. Woop-ee
Here is the kicker.
On my last day there we are sitting in his living room watching TV and there is a knock at the door.
BANG BANG BANG.
Me: are you going to get that?
A.C.: Ohhh I don't think it's for me.
BANG BANG BANG (Obviously on his door)
Me: I'm pretty sure it's for you
A.C.: let's go into my room until they leave.
(he is creeping out the window watching "this person" leave while I wait)

My guess... a girl. Or Jesus. Either way, he probably should have opened the door.

Moral of the story? And yes there is always a moral. 
If a guy ever refuses to open a door... He is not for you.
Plain and Simple.

OMG! this series is unreal and tooo funny! after all the duds you've come across, surely your king is coming! ;)

Melanie said...

These stories crack me up! There just isn't a perfect guy; if he looks that good, has an accent, and can play a guitar, obviously something is wrong!

Samantha said...

Hahahaha! This is fantastic. He was definitely not a keeper....despite the accent. :)

arianapia said...

wowza!! he sounds like a class act for sure

keep 'em coming!

Beth said...

nice. why do the cutes ones always have to be the worst?!

i wanna know what was on the other side of that door. did you ever find out? i'm assuming a nice young lady.

Jennifer said...

WOW...definitely had to be a girl at the door. I know I would have thought that too.

Rissy said...

"... or Jesus" I'm dying Sabs! hahahah

so this is why you're so adamant that he should pay for half of my flight hmmm ; ) jk I know you're right

sounds like he was an expensive life lesson lol

Amy Lynn said...

Jesus?! Haha! Satan might have been at the door for him at that point. I'm glad your duds provide us with entertaining stories, but at the same time I hope you find your King soon! I'm pretty positive 99.9% of guys are duds though.. Maybe I need to start my own Bad Duds series.. Hm.

Young and Fabulous said...

it was actually me at the door

but OMG hahah what a weirdo! why wouldnt he answer it!

i have to agree...he is a looker! ;-)

Joe said...

I stumbled across your blog and being a guy, it is always funny to see a woman's take on how we act when on a date. This series is so funny..Maybe you could step it up and create a match.com profile and chronicle the adventures from there. At least you get free dinner every Friday or Saturday night, or heck, two different dates, two free dinners!!!

Anna said...

I am laughing so hard.

He sounds like the Boogey Man is at his door, and hiding in his bedroom is going to make it better.


This is seriously one of the best series ever.

aislin said...

bahahahahaha oh this is priceless. and so true. if a guy doesn't open a door [regardless of crazy ex or drug lord owed money on the other side] or hold a door open for you, it's time to say bye.

Bethany said...

I am laughing so hard!!! SO you pay for dinner AND a hotel and he doesnt even give you any? What a tease!! lol... have you talked to him since???

sea to shining port said...

So. True.

Bon Bon said...

my husband speaks spanish fluently, and a little russian too...so I definitely get the whole hot for language thing:-)

AND I may or may not have several potential blind dates for you.

They'd at least be great blog material if nothing came of them:-)

xoxo

Taylor said...

Spanish is overrated get an italian guy those accents will make your panties melt right off.

MelissMichelle said...

HILARIOUS. I love finding a blog with a sense of humor :) -Melissa

walking dot photography said...

OOOoooo noo...lol...I'm sorry. I totally understand because I, too, have had my swept-of-the-feet moment by a man who spoke another language (or four or five others languages, to be precise). How can a girl resist?

My guess is that it was a debt collector since you kept having to pay for everything!

meghan said...

Ashley said...
