Recently I received a comment, not sure from where or who, that it would be nice to read some positive stories on my blog. I get that, I do. And luckily I’m in a position to oblige.
Yesterday morning I received a completely out of the blue, unsolicited email from The Musician. He left for vacation on Monday. We last saw each other on Friday (second date, very chaste goodnight kiss, barely even a kiss). We exchanged emails on Sunday before he left.
So he’s checking in with me from his vacation, after just a couple of dates. I see this as a really good thing. And I know, reallly I do know, that he’s a good guy. And I like him. I don’t know about some other big stuff (are we sexually compatible, for example) but we’ll get to the big stuff when he get’s back from his vacation. Now, just knowing that he was thinking of me was kind of a big deal.
And then last night I had a pretty awesome first date. We both spent most of the night laughing and smiling. In some ways he’s exactly like the guys I usually date and in other ways he’s completely different. Early 40s, divorced, really cute, sucessful, blah, blah, blah… But unusual for the guys I usually meet, he married and had a kid while he was pretty young and so he comes off as a lot more of a grown up than the men I’m used to spending time with. Anyway, for lack of a better nickname I’m going to call him The GrownUp.
I emailed The GrownUp early today and sent him a link to some music we were talking about and a few emails later we are already making plans for our next date.
So you see, I do have good dating experiences, too. I now have 2 totally good prospects. And screw the rest of them. Really, screw ‘em. They can take their confusion and moodiness and go far, far away.
