So it's a few days until Lance comes to visit and I'm still not sure how much I really like him. He has a lot of good qualities and we have a ton in common which is good, but at the same time there are some things I don't like.

#1. He still lives at home because after he graduated he went to boot camp for the marines, decided it wasn't for him and moved home to work with his dad.
#2. He quit bootcamp in the middle. I couldn't handle bootcamp myself so I can't judge but it shows a lack of follow-through.
#3. Tonight he was on the phone with me and starting get snotty with his mom because his jeans were missing and he couldn't find them because she did his laundry and put them away in the wrong place.
#5. He still wants to go oversees and now wants to join the National Guard, and I don't know if I really want to date a military guy because I've seen how hard it is on my friends who go through it. (But I respect the military and their families a ton, don't get me wrong! I just don't know if I could handle it.)

I'm getting frustrated......I still want him to come, but I sort of feel like I may not like him as much as I thought I would and I don't want to have to go through a whole weekend if I decide I don't like him. Would it be rude to tell him that if I feel that way when he comes, and ask him to leave? THIS is why online dating can be a bitch.

I edited this post to add that he apologized for me overhearing him fight with his mom, it's just that he gets tired of her misplacing his laundry. Umm WTF
My response : Well perhaps she gets tired of doing your laundry. You're 25, perhaps it's time you start doing your own.

I still haven't heard back haha........ I might just adopt a little girl and live happily ever after on my own. I'm getting a bit bored with the men I date. I'm like Goldylocks...I want one that's Juuuuust Right.

**Speaking of Goldylocks I got super blond highlights - by accident sort of - and now my hair is really light and I'm not sure if I like it. Will post pics tomorrow if I get time.

hmmm...not sure how I feel about this guy now. But, in his husband's mom had the housecleaner do his laundry until the day we got married! Mom's always want to take care of their boys.

Just go with your gut...and be honest with him.

He should be thankful she does his laundry!! Actually he should do it himself........
