I feel as if I've been duped....



Much like Oprah felt duped by James Frey, this weekend I felt duped as well.

I had plans to go o lunch with a potential client this weekend. I met him at the ND Alumni Networking thing and discovered that our companies could do some work together. After hearing some good news this weekend, I emailed him and let him know that we shuold have luch soon to discuss this opportunity. We settled on Saturday.

I was already in Detroit on Saturday getting my hair done. I met him in Ann Arbor at a restaurant. I'm pretty sure the first words that came out of his mouth was a compliment on how beautiful I looked. I immediately knew that he wanted to discuss more than our business! I felt a little duped. Here I thought I was going to have a mature, productive lunch and land an account. I quickly found out he was more interested in me than my company.

We actually had a nice lunch. It lasted for about three hours. During the course of the meal he told me that he was finding it increasingly difficult to continue to separate business and pleasure. I was praying that I wouldn't have to sleep with this man in order to get the account. It's fortunate that I hold all the cards in this business deal though. In acutality, he needs me more than I need him. I could walk away from the deal, but I want the credit of landing the deal, so that's the main reason that I'm staying.

So when I left the restaurant, I began thinking about the new character in my life. In all reality, I'm not all that interested in him, and I finally figured out why. My ne w friend fit almost all the criteria in men I date. He's old (over 30), he majorly successful (as demonstrated by the 7 series BMW he drove off in)...what was it that was not making me want to jump his bones on the restaurant table? Oh yes, he's black. If you know Miss Kiki well, you know that she has never dated a black man. She's dated white guys, Serbian guys, Lebanese guys, but not black. Kiki feels there's something normal and right about dating a black man. And Miss Kiki is not into the norm. So that's why our new friend is not overly attractive to me. However, I'm not going to let him know that. I'm going to make sure everytime he sees me, I'm looking hot and delicious. Because I don't condone mixing business with pleasure. But if I can keep him under my thumb and get what I want from him, I feel that's acceptable.

what about hugh?

and what if marriage material suddenly called and said he couldn't live without you?

what then?

Ohhh... I remember marriage material. He was so sweet!!! Nice flashback, Kip ;-)

I remember Hugh too - he was a nice guy, but that situation was drama.

Which other ex's of Kiki can we come up with? This could get pretty interesting!
