Going in to last nights double/blind date, I didn’t have any expectations.. I told myself that it probably wouldn’t lead to anything. I was even thinking I didn’t want to go.
But I am so glad I did! It was such a good night! We all met for dinner, and then we had dessert. Then after we went to play some pool and hang out. I was the last to arrive for dinner, so I was searching around for them. I peaked my head into this small back room and he was the first one I saw. It may sound weird, but I felt a little shock run through me. ((side note: I always pray to God that I need something obvious to tell me when I find my Mr Right- so I guess we’ll see if this was it…)) I walked in to make sure my friend and her husband were there and that this was the guy, which it was. We sat across from each other.. I could tell he was a little shy, but so am I. I had no idea what he looked like beforehand, and I was pleasantly surprised! And he was very polite! He said I was very beautiful. And I couldn’t believe how much we had in common! Just like little things, such as hating the cold and being wet from the rain, or being homebodies, or loving to read books, and being good at math! Just a few examples, but I was shocked at how many times I said “me too, I’m the same way.”
I had such a great time. I can’t remember the last time I felt so happy and relaxed. And obviously it’s too soon to say, but I really feel like there is real potential there. We both said we had a great time and wanted to see each other again.. At the end of the night, he walked me to my car. We exchanged numbers, and he stood on the sidewalk until I drove away.. It felt so polite and gentlemanly! I couldn’t stop smiling… And by the time I got home he had text messaged me..
David: “I really had a good time tonight. You’re very attractive…and I enjoyed talking with you. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Sleep well tonight miss”
Me: “:) same here! I had a great night hanging out and talking with you too! We will definitely see each other again soon! Sweet dreams…”
David: “Thanks darlin… you too. ;)”
I am not going to throw myself into this too soon.. I need to take things slow and get to know him well.. I’m still not sure if I’m ready, but hanging out with him last night felt right. I always get my hopes up too soon, so I’m trying not to do that…. Just take things as they come and see where it leads.. But I also can’t help but feel that my cold, loveless, neglected heart has just been shocked back into life.. Maybe that’s just the hopeless romantic in me…
We shall see…
