    yeah I noticed that too, every CoTHer that has visited my profile I rate 80% or higher. Goes to show that most horse people are cut from the same cloth?

    We're just all ******* crazy. That's why.

    Where in PA did you grow up? I grew up in Montgomery County and we had a huge Vietnamese community. Tons of restaurants, markets, right smack dab in the middle of Mennonite land.

    I grew up in Bethlehem--Northampton County. I lived out east of town in the township area, not urban at all (at the time). It was a pretty sheltered life, we did no traveling as a family. I went to school in Easton, and the barn where I rode was out in Easton as well.

    My HS friend was Thai-Filipino.

    Pad Thai is where it's at. Nom nom nom. Never had Filipino food.

    My friend had the most interesting family. They were quite wealthy from probably anyone's standards, but particularly mine as we were dirt poor. Both parents were surgeons, both attended ivy league schools. When my friend (he was the oldest of 4 boys) got into Princeton it was right around the time of the family's annual big New Year's party. Each of the sons could invite a friend or two, but the party was for "grown ups"--fully catered, black tie, yadda yadda. I remember his mom wearing this decadent silver beaded gown--with a Princeton sweatshirt on top.

    My father is a Princeton alum. I like their campus. It's a great place to walk around and think with all the old buildings and history around you. Great townie restaurants just off the campus too. I remember this one pizza place that was pretty good and they had ice cream as well, like one of those old diners.

    I ate at their (my friend's) house a lot as a kid. I'm not sure if the food was primarily Thai or Filipino, or a mixture. It was all strange to me. When I started hanging out with this guy, his father had a fit about me sitting at the dinner table. His mother and their (female) maid always ate in the kitchen and the "men" ate in the dining room. Luckily I was too clueless to be offended.

    You seem like a decent human being. I'd let you sit across from me.

    Thanks, Lex. Times they are a changin'! This was eons ago, after all! I'm happy to say that I think I broke his poor dad. He could not understand why we hung out together when we were babies at 14. By the time we graduated 1, 2 in HS, I think he understood.

    Ah, Lansdale. Know it well. Souderton, too. I never go back. I haven't been to my neck of PA in over 10 years. You?

    Please feel free to tell me I'm being too closed off, or guarded, or whatever, as well.

    So earlier the cowboy asked for my number to text vs send messages on POF. I hesitated; I don't normally give my number out so soon (he initially messaged me Tuesday but I answered yesterday, and our emails continued today). He said some stuff that resonated ("if you're always defensive you might be missing out," "I am a good guy and I want to get to know you," blah blah blah), so I gave him my number thinking we'd only be texting. The text convo wound down earlier this afternoon.

    Well, he just called me. I didn't answer (I didn't add him to my contacts but recognized the number as his), and he left a voicemail, asking me to call him back or send a text. I honestly feel a little violated, I was not expecting a phone call and I don't want to have any awkward phone calls with a strange dude; I would rather chat on the phone with someone I've met once or twice.

    Now, if I'm being a bit silly, please tell me! But I did find out there's lots of baggage with this dude; he moved up here to get away from his ex-wife who stalks his old house in another state. I've got red flags from that, and if I do text him it will basically be to tell him to lose my number since I didn't give him the A-OK to call me.

    What do you think, fellow COTH online daters?
    I'd be pretty creeped out, myself.


    But then, I'm the girl who just spent 30 mins trying to rewrite my profile into something decent, and then gave up. Lol. So perhaps my opinion/concerns re: social norms/abnorms is not one to write a book by.

    Then again, "the one who got away" phoned today (not abnormal this time of year - he needs bookkeeping) for no reason other than to see how things were going. (very abnormal). So no idea there, but perhaps the whole "dating" thing isn't worth the effort anyways.

    Speaking of the "50 Shades" craze…I just received a message on OkC from "SubmissiveMatt," who is looking to serve a Goddess!

    The message was, "Hey Goddess, are You a dominant female?" Goodness. And yeah I know the dude was dominant in 50 Shades.
