The Jinxing Man

So there are certain topics that I refuse to blog about for my own personal reasons and one of them happens to be my dating life. I guess I sorta believe in the whole "jinxing" power and if I open my mouth and say what I'm thinking, I'm basically shooting myself in the foot. My hopes, dreams, wishes won't come true. Its as if by keeping it strictly in my mind, its hidden from the jinxing man who's sole purpose in life is to take what you want (or don't want) and ensure that just the opposite happens.
Many of you have been asking for details about my recent postings on facebook. This is a bit of a challenge for me, so I hope each of you appreciate the chance I'm taking here by opening the door ever so slightly; going against everything I believe and sharing some secrets about my most recent dating life. If things don't work out I'll believe solely in that jinxing man.
When I moved to Colorado I was afraid that my dating life would go down the drain. I had very few friends here to rely on in hopes that they would set me up with their charmingly, handsome, single brother. So I was left with nothing more then taking matters into my own hands. I swallowed my pride and joined a dating website. I was very hesitant at first and even more hesitant to tell people. The more I opened up about it (especially at work) I found that every person I talked to knew someone who had met their husband online and they were happily married. So I started to feel more comfortable. I became more flirtatious in my emails (I know some of you are wondering how that is possible), and really went into each blind date with a positive attitude that something would work out. Guy after guy, date after date it was a hit and miss. I would go on a couple of good ones, a couple of bad ones and every so often a horrible one (sushi anyone!?) Rather then getting super upset (ok Holly, I know I did call you a few times when I broke down) but other then that I kept going.
That's when it happened. I was online and sure enough found Cody. Here are some stats about him and crazy as it is, I know his cousin pretty well and my sister knows his family super well (His aunt and uncle go to the same ward as my sister).
*He is 28
*Blonde hair/blue eyes
*6'2"
*An adorable smile
*Member of the church
*divorced
*has a daughter
*working on becoming an EMT
*Treats me like an angel

We've gone out 4 times, (5th date is this Friday). He has kissed me and has told me that he wants to continue to go out with me. (All good signs right!?) So, I'm enjoying our time together... he keeps me laughing and we have a lot of fun. I don't know what will happen, maybe the jinxing man will get to me first before anything more happens with Cody, but I'm enjoying my time now and not too worried about the future... things will happen the way they're supposed to happen. They always do.

I don't have any photos yet of Cody and I (I left my camera in my other purse when we went to the Nuggets game!) So I stole some from his profile and posted them below... Thanks sweetie :) (sorry they are small)
