Okay, I had a date with nice guy. He is almost too nice, which usually is a turn off for me. But he was pretty funny and very interesting and it so cute because he kissed me on the cheek at the end of the night.:) AND…it may be shocking, but I am going on a 2nd date with him!!! YAYYYYY. He asked me during dinner and I accepted:) I haven’t made it to a 2nd date with anyone in 7 years because I never liked them enough to go forward with them. But this dinner date got a thumbs up. Will have to wait and see what date 2 has to hold.:)
During dinner, a British guy that I have become acquainted with who is 20 years my senior, called me. Well of course I didn’t answer, so I called him on the way back home. He is so nice and intelligent and interesting. The thing that I don’t like is that he has 4 kids!! But, he is traveling all of the time and so busy with his job that he may be my ideal. But he lives over 2 hours from me. So I don’t know. But, he said is going to make a business appointment here and get a hotel room just so he can have a date with me.
So, things are looking up and steering away from my married guy friend, which is good. I mean I don’t want married guy for my own, because I am not that woman. That is not what I am looking for, I am looking for someone to call mine and only mine. I want someone who is intelligent, articulate and interesting. Looks are literally last on the list for me at this point. Of course they help, but after some of the doozies I have come into contact with, a nice guy who makes me laugh is better than some fit runner.
I am not sure exactly what I want right now, but it is fun figuring it out. I feel as if I am 18 again, with different dates and more than one guy calling. I feel totally in control of my situation though, versus when I was younger I had out of control hormones and did not think with my brain. I can’t believe that Saturday I have a date with another guy! And, he is 15 years older than me. But, the funny thing is he chose the same restaurant as the guy did tonight. Weird huh? I feel like a giddy school girl in some ways, but the stakes are higher because of my age and because I have a kid. I am just waiting to see how it all plays out. I have confidence in myself and what I have to offer now, so I won’t put up with as much as I did in the past. All of this should be interesting…
