It's weird to say I had a second date with someone I dated sort of seriously before...but it was our second new date!
I was even more nervous for this date, because I had less than 24 hours notice of said date.
I am a planner. I have my whole week planned out on Sunday! Actually, I have my whole life planned out. I know the days I go to the gym, the days I run, the days I take my dogs to the park, when I grocery shop, when I prepare my food for the week...and yes, I realize how very single, and tragic this may sound!
So, I got a text one evening asking if I'd like to meet the following evening...after WORK..because he was working near my side of town the next day (we live about an hour apart)...my first instinct was to say I was busy. I mean, I go to the gym at that time every single week... But my second instinct was that I am trying to break out of my shell, and this wouldn't happen very often, and I wanted to see him, and so I said YES!
At dinner, in the spirit of being honest, I told him that I am a planner, and this was outside of my comfort zone, and that I usually like a 48 hour advance notice to go out, but that I knew this was something that just came up so of course I said yes, and it was good to do once in a while....even though I was laughing when I said this, I meant it.
He got some extra points for saying he noted that I like advance notice for going out. And it sparked a really great conversation after that!
It was about 20 degrees that night, and he walked me to my car, like a gentlemen...and we hugged...and still no kiss!!
I remember the last time that we dated, years ago..it took him about 4 dates to finally lay one on me. I remember thinking he didn't even like me, because he didn't make a move.
