The Date

SO last night I went on a date. Yes I know calm down... me ... on a date!!! lol. I'm not a member of this dating site but I have a profile So i can look every once in a while and even send limited correspondence if I so choose. Well a guy sent me a comment, and I sent one back and we ended up talking on the phone. We have allot in common, we laughed CONSTANTLY. One of the things we had in common was liking wine. So he asked if I wanted to meet last night to go to a wine tasting. I found a sitter and was waiting for him to call to confirm that I did found a sitter. He called and said he had an idea.. although a wine tasting would be fun .. maybe we should wait to go till next time since you couldnt talk much. He wanted to go to Naperville for dinner and then for desert to a place that serves chocolate fondue. Are you kidding.. that was a great idea I said! And he was right.. better to talk.

So we went to Mongolian grill which I had never been to before and it was great! I will admit I was a little nervous when I saw bins on the salad bar type set up full of raw meat of different varieties. but it was really good. and fun to watch them make. I got a drink, he got a beer, and we ate.. using chopsticks at first then both switching to forks after a while. Then we brought the glass his beer came in to the car. It was this big mug that was really nice and if you brought it back refills were dirt cheap. So then we went back and walked down to the fondue place. it was so much fun! He opened all the doors for me, was so polite, paid for everything.

At first I was not sure if I would see him again. But I came to the realization that we have allot in common, he was funny and it was fun. I think it was just nerves since i really have not been on too many dates. and I was comparing things about him which come on.. you cant do . he will not be the same as anyone else. So I talked to him again today already. And i decided I will see him a couple more times and see how it goes. He is funny, a single dad, has a great job, we have allot in common... and come on.. hes a packers fan!! lol... So I'm chalking last night up to nerves and going from there. Well see!

okay...he sounds totally perfect for you.
why are you saying that you might not see him again, or may only see him a few more times?

I am so proud of you! So proud.
Give him and shot and for the love of God stop comparing him to Dick! You've named him DICK for a reason! You don't want another one of those!
