One fish in the middle of the sea

“No women ever wakes up saying I hope don’t I get swept off my feet today” -Hitch

This is one of my favorite romantic comedys so bare with me while I use a couple quotes haha. So yes I moved to a new city. I’m not saying I’m looking for love but I would like to find a good friend or two and maybe get swept off my feet in the process so I joined online dating. Wrap Girl 87! yep I incorporated my business into my user name. While I’ve gotten several views on my profile I wonder how they come up with their matches. Like my criteria to start with. Age 25-35, lives in asheville and non smoker! so why am I getting people who are a 10% match or 90% of the good looking ones (yes I’m superficial at times) are smokers! There’s a difference in having a religion as a hobby or a box to check on a form and actually living it. So this week(s) explore asheville will be merged with New city new friends segment.

So that day where I was bored and decided to take the leap I got into some good conversations with a couple guys. After a couple hours of messaging one of them asked if i’d like to go out on the off chance I actually get off on a weekend. So I randomly got friday off and I’ve been wanting to go to the drum circle which happens every friday downtown it’s fantastic and everyone should experience it at least once! So we decided to go hiking prior to the drum circle we went to sliding rock

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc8luqt19Jc (watch it for the first minute or two)

The Water was so cold it took your breath away! We only slid down a handful of times b/c the water was so cold. It can be such a fun time people watching! I could be happy if I came with a bunch of people to just sit in the sun on a rock and watch people go down. There was a couple that went down and they went so fast that when they hit a bump in the rock the got good air! We would make sure we were watching when they went down. Parking is $2 per person. There are changing areas and a spectator overlook as we were leaving an older couple who had no intention of swimming had brought 2 camping chairs and set them up in view of the slide to just watch for awhile. We also ventured over to Triple falls

Where little known fact the hunger games were filmed in the dupont state forest where you will find triple falls, hooker falls and looking glass falls. (I’m sure there are more than that too!)

Ahhh My city is famous for something other than it’s breweries!

Next we went to

Yes It’s a baby. I have no idea why. I was in the mood for pizza so I settled on a calzone as did he. Their food was good but I wouldn’t put it on my must visit list. Halfway through dinner I realized his shirt was on inside out. How do you tell someone that? We laughed about it and tried to see if the waitress would notice but she didn’t. We continued our adventure downtown to the drum circle

Thats only a small section. there was probably 70 drummers. They had 3 big drums in the center that set the rhythm and young and old would follow along while the spectators danced and twirled, ran congo lines and hoola hooped.  It happens Every friday night so go do it! Afterwards we walked around downtown using a quarter to determine which streets we would walk down. If it was heads then we would go right or straight and if it was tails then we would go left. Every time he flipped the coin it ended up on heads (like 12 times in a row!) and every time I flipped it…tails. (6 times). It was a fun day 🙂

Date 2:

First date was late 20s the second guy was late 30s. A little older than I had originally thought I’d like but I thought i’d give it a shot. What’s wrong with meeting a few new friends? New experiences? Why Not. So we decided to meet at the atlanta bread company then move on from there. Apparently every tuesday there’s a group of older people who play cards and games all day happens every week from what the cashier said. We moved on from there and figured out we both love to play games so we went to play phooseball at a local brewery Altamont Brewing companyAltamont Brewing Company - Asheville, NC, United States

Its built in an old mechanic shop and they recently bought the restaurant next door and is going to open it up to food soon! They have a cool stage. The decor is really cool with drapes and local artists sell their artwork. There are brochures and magazines showcasing everything fun there is to do in asheville! They have a ping pong table and phooseball table which is free for everyone’s enjoyment. It’s also a stop on the asheville brewery bus tour! Different type of date both fun in different ways. Yay for making new friends! Cheers to meeting new people and doing new fun things!
