I had a date.

I met Bill, a 29-year-old engineer, for a late dinner at Applebee's last night. It went well, I guess. Sounds like he wants to see me again.

I'll keep you informed. ;)

Niiiccceeee!! Did you get a kiss? heehee

btw For my curiousity from being single, doing the whole dating thing - how did you meet him?

keesh said...

yeah, more details please. how did you originally meet him? super happy for you!~ Welcome home girl

"well, you guess"?

What didn't you like? What wasn't so good?

It's nice that he likes you, but of course, who wouldn't?

LOL. Well, I have to be careful what I say on here, as he has found my blog through my Yahoo profile. ;)

BUT, I'll say this:

The date was actually a very good first date. The conversation flowed pretty easily, he's got a great smile and nice eyes and I didn't spill on myself, trip, etc. As I told him, though, I just don't LIKE first dates, period; I feel like so much of it is almost like a job interview until a few weeks in. I like the phase that comes once you've been hanging out a while, and you can truly be yourself, be comfortable just sitting there watching TV, etc. So I guess that's when I meant by my lack of earlier enthusiasm. The date was WONDERFUL. IT WAS FABULOUS. HE IS THE BEST PERSON EVER. (There, Bill, was that better?) ;)

Oops there were more questions.

We met through Match.com; I put up a profile when I knew for sure that I'd be coming back here. I wanted to find people to hang out with and, if I was REALLY lucky, someone to hang out with during the upcoming holidays (cuz Lord knows I'll have to get out of the house). ;) We've been talking online for the last few weeks, which is probably part of the reason this first dinner went well--we already had stuff to talk about, knew a little about each other, etc.

No kiss. He was a gentleman and didn't try (don't know if he wanted to). He did give me a hug, though. He smelled really good.

Anna said...

OK, ok. (Maybe I'll email you for more ;)

Wow first date and sounds like you are a little smitten already ;) Good for him - kiss on the first date is out for me too. So he might have wanted to, but like me would not on the first date. A hug "gauges" everything, i.e. the closeness of hug, length of embrace, where the hands are. Do you women out there agree?

Hmmm people tell me about match.com, but not quite sure about the whole online dating thing yet. Guess I am too traditional. But like you said it is a great way to get to know the person before you actually meet.

Jen said...

"Where the hands are" ? What are the choices?

PS, I saw him again tonight and he's a really good kisser. ;)

Anna said...

Yay! :)
