TMI: Without Saying a Word…

Written by on Friday, March 19th, 2010 with 16 comments

Twitpic from Duane Reade – “from Midtown to Flushing”.  Get it??

Hi, my dahlings! I have missed you x 100 and I am sooo excited to be part of your bloggy lives again 😉

So, sometime ago, after chatting back & forth via email with a new fellow, we decided to take the next step and talk over the phone.


Let’s call said gent TMI. TMI is an international business consultant in his early-thirties, an IVY grad & a member of all sorts of fraternal like leagues. And – very attractive. Like scholar-hottie attractive.

TMI & I had lots of things in common – both foodies, went to same undergrad, similar music tastes, b-lah, b-lah. And according to our online dating profiles, our “personality traits” worked seamlessly (oh, the magic of compatibility analysis!).

Thus, I was uber excited to learn more about TMI. He called me one eve, while I was just coming in from a city downpour. I spoke to him for a few moments and asked if I could call him back bc I was drenched and wanted to change.

“Of course.” says TMI.

I change into something warm (and cashmere), feed Midtown Pups and then ring up TMI. TMI picks up and we begin to chat. After sometime, convo shifts to his recent travels…

HE: “I just came back from London, from a 3 month long work trip.”

ME: “Oh, nice. Was it your first time there?”

HE: “No, I actually go there quite often. I am a fan of English culture & etiquette.”

ME: “Understandably so… I would love to make a trip there sometime in the near future.”

Convo sounds kinda dry, right? Right.

But, TMI seemed to have some sort of Hugh Grant essence permeating thru his voice, which was kept our convo lasting longer than it probably should have…

TMI pauses our convo mid-subject and asks to give him a min.

“Sure!”, I respond.

A few moments later, TMI resumes our convo and asks –

HE: “I would really love to meet. Are you free Friday for dinner?”

ME: “Yes, that sounds lovely. Let’s get in touch later this week with details?”

HE: “Excellent. I will speak to you tomorrow.”

Then, juuust as he is about to hang up, I hear…


OMG. Seriously?


p.s. – Sorry, but the visual forced me to cancel the date. XOXO

  1. Yes, we missed you. Happy to have you back. The new site is fun and cute. I love the changes.

    Lol @ that story. I feel like toilet etiquette is such a common rule ESPECIALLY on your first real phone interaction; and he said he’s interested in English etiquette. Ha!

    P.S. Do you watch Millionaire Matchmaker? I’ve been watching it recently, and I definitely thought about you and your dating stories.

  2. Yayay! Welcome back, my love! And ohmigosh the new Midtown Girl is divine – even more fabulous than before…if that’s even possible, of course! Love it, love it, love it!

    I don’t, however, love TMI…and I totally see why you canceled the date. A boy I was crushing on once called me while he was in the restroom…as in, I could “hear him” going. Definitely sets the mood, doesn’t it? 🙂

  3. I can never understand why people find it okay to talk on the phone while they are using the toilet.

    The blog looks awesome! Very cool!!!

  4. Love the new blog look sweets and we do have to set something up. I’ve been freaken busy running back and forth so much I miss you!

    And lol about flushing.. Whats wrong with people seriously
