So, I’d mentioned a good (first) date last week…
Since then, I’ve seen that same man a few times. 3 to be exact. And, because I thought he’d care, I told him about the blog.
So here’s the deal. I’m not sure what any of that means. It could mean absolutely nothing. 3 dates is, really, nothing. I’ve become allergic to moving too fast. Completely incapable of leaps of faith.
What I do know is that I’m going to have to find some kind of line that both he and I can feel comfortable with. One where I write about my dating life, but kinda leave the details out of it (even more than I already do). If that’s possible.
I do have a funny story for you. Our first date was supposed to be a walk along the river. But it was an oppressively hot day and neither of us really wanted to be outside. He suggested drinks at a place in my ‘hood (which was very kind of him as I was still not feeling 100%).
We got a table right away and he went up to get us drinks (seltzer for me). While he was away, I was randomly looking around the room. Not at anything in particular. Just looking around.
All of a sudden this guy comes up to me and starts a conversation. I can’t even remember how he started/what he said first. He wasn’t a particularly attractive man and as I was there on a date it hadn’t occurred to me that he might be hitting on me. Just making conversation. I guess he asked if I was alone and I stupidly said that I was there with a friend. Anyway, moments later my date came back and the guy went away. For a little while.
Time passes. My date and I are talking. And then this same guy interrupts our conversation. Again, I can’t remember exactly what he said (wow, my memory is getting worse all the time). He pulled out his card and said he’d like for me to call him. In front of my date. I just sat there and smiled like an idiot, and then started laughing as soon as he walked away. I thought it was hysterical. It was hysterical. My date didn’t think it was nearly as funny as I did. At least, not at first. But I think he eventually saw the humor in it.
