Where there are still gentlemen..


My date was pretty nice this past weekend! We went on over an hour trek to a delicious winery. Our dinner reservation was at 6:30 so he picked me up at 4.

He brought me beautiful yellow roses. Do guys still do that? Yes....they do!

I don't remember the last time I got flowers, but it was probably at least as far back as 2005. I'm sorry...I did get a rose from exmanfriend's brother one night at a bar from the rose guy. Yes...his brother.

But, it made me smile that he went to the extra effort to do something like that. And, from a real florist at that, wrapped up with a bow and everything! Not even gas station flowers!!

When he helped me into his truck, he told me the water in the console was for me...since it was a long ride, and he knows how I have to always have water.

Then, we have different music tastes. I like everything, particularly, hip hop, and pop...he likes rock...And he told me to pick out a station on sirius. I of course, picked out a pop station, and got to hear Madonna's new song for the first time! Score! He didn't make fun of my squeals, and car dancing either, he totally appreciated it!

Then, he let me plug my phone in, and play my own music. I was probably in heaven at that point. Jamming out to "work out" and "talk that talk" and the like. It's the little things!! I am always the giver, its so different to have a like minded person to hang out with!!

Super sweet.

We did a wine tasting before dinner, where we got to try a list of 8 wines! Then, we did another list! You got to keep your glasses too, so now I have a nice set of four from our first date, and a slew of new wines to like!!

We were seated by the fireplace, overlooking the water, it was pretty romantic! We got a bottle of wine that I got to choose for us, and had an amazing meal, and great conversation! I got chicken, broccoli, and a side of fettucini (oh how I missed fettucini!) I did limit myself to just "tasting" the bread and oil...but it was soooo worth the taste!

It's been so long since I had any man treat me as though I am a valuable lady, that I almost didn't know how to act. I was very shy. Getting to make choices, without worrying about what he would think about it, because it was "whatever I wanted", because "you deserve to be treated this way".

Huh?!?

I am so not use to that, but if things continue to progress, I think I can certainly get use to it! I just have to get out of my head and stop worrying about the end game, and enjoy the moment.

Sounds like a wonderful, romantic date. Glad you had a great time.

Oh, and yes, you definitely deserve it.

With the new single has Madonna become a born again teenager? Don’t get me wrong she is great, the constant reinvention is impressive but this time she seems to have plagiarised a much younger version of herself. That could be an interesting court battle Younger Madonna suing older Madonna....

Congrats on the flowers, I hope you remembered to share some of that water with them...for my first date with the now Mrs B I forgot to feed her until I had a rather crotchety and upset date, as we trailed around London – Rooky error but I learned a valuable lesson which has helped keep us together for over 26 years. I’m afraid you can count on the arms of an Octopus the number of times she has had flowers over the years – I’m just not a flower giver – she does however get a fresh cup of tea and a bowl of porridge (told you I learned my lesson about not feeding her) every morning in bed.
