So he kissed me...

It turned out to be a dance club for over 30y. It was like something out of yesterday!

When I arrived, they set me up to sit with some other women, who were a riot! I got asked to dance a few times, including this one guy, Rob, who caught my eye. I told the other women that I like the looks of him, so they started bugging me to ask him to dance. But I didn't have the courage. So the one woman started throwing hickory sticks at him to get his attention!

I am blushing from embarrassment! But he finally looks, and she tells him I want to dance with him. So he comes over and sits with us. Our first dance together had been a fast dance, but he asked if we could wait for a slow dance. Sure, that was fine with me.

Well, we ended up dancing every slow dance together for the rest of the night, and close too. I am so bad - it felt great to be in his arms! When we weren't dancing, we sat and talked. He was so sweet, and the other women vouched for him - that he was a really good guy.

We were the last ones to leave, and he asked for my email address, and gave me his. Then he walked me to my truck, and hugged me goodbye. When we broke the hug, he kissed me softly on the lips. I wasn't expecting that! But I didn't mind at all...

I guess I must have had fun, because I just got home and it's nearly 3AM!

Sounds like you had a wonderful evening, congrats on your courage to go there alone. Good to hear that you had that much fun. So you will go there again? How often do they have these singles nights?

But who knows, maybe you already have an email of your last night dance-guy in your mail-account this morning and this story will go on.....you have to tell Walter then that his suggestion to go there was a very good idea!

BTW, my boyfriend lives in Ontario (GTA) as well, and his name is Rob, do you think I should better ask him if he was out last night dancing with a wonderful woman called Catherine? ;-) No, I am just kidding, I know what he did last night and I also know he is not the same age group as you are. And most important, we trust each other which is indispensable in my eyes especially when being in a LDR like ours.

All the luck that I have with my Rob to you and your Rob!

Yes, I would like to go again - it really was fun. Though I really do need to learn to dance! {smile} The women said the dances were held every Friday and Sunday night, and told me about other dances around town I could go to.



Well... actually... as I was posting here last night...

he was sending me an email! {grin}

He thanked me for spending the evening with him, he said it was a pleasurable experience. He asked me to write back if I want to talk more with him...

I haven't answered him yet, I'm thinking about what I want to say?



I knew I could trust that guy! I went there last night based solely on Walter's opinion, and his concern for my safety. He was right, and I'll be sure to thank him next time I see him.



{laughing!} Not unless your Rob has completely white hair! Rob is actually younger than me (I'm not sure by how much) and a widower. No kids, he doesn't smoke, and he loves to go to listen to live music. I think I could like this man!

But I am so jealous! He is going to see the Rolling Stones, live in concert, here in Toronto this week! I have wanted to go so bad, but was afraid to go alone. But maybe I would have gone if I had him to protect me... {smile}

It's probably too late to get tickets now...

Still laughing about the completely white hair, then it's definitely not my Rob ;-) unless of course he has turned white since I left him 10 days ago!? I think my Rob would also never deny his son and tell anybody he has no kids so I guess we can be sure here that there are just (at least) 2 guys named Rob in the Toronto area who seem to be very nice. That's good though!

But I am curious now, have you already answered his email? Very cute that he obviously wrote it that moment he came home. I would just let him know you enjoyed his company as well and that you would like to repeat it someday. Then it's up to him to do the next step and invite you or something. Perhaps you can tell him that you are jealous he is going to see the Stones so that he may have the chance to get another ticket for you!? Rob (mine!) told me about that event as well. He is not going but told me they are expecting about 500,000 people there and many other acts are playing as well. Sounds like a very big happening. My boss has just been over to Prague tonight to see the Stones playing there (kind of inofficial birthday concert of Mick Jagger) and I am already curious what he will tell about that.

Wasn't that sweet? I was so surprised that I had such an effect on him...

I did write back, the next afternoon, and told him that I was so nervous to walk in alone

last night. Spending the evening with him and dancing together made me feel comfortable, and I had fun. I said that I look forward to talking to him more.

He hasn't emailed back yet. I did that Google thing, and didn't find much. But I checked Canada411.com and now I have his address and phone number. It feels so stalker-like to do that, but I do need to protect myself.



I was talking to my son tonight and it turns out he is going to see the Stones too. Now I feel left out! {grin} But he said that he could get me a ticket, if I wanted to go, and to "talk to my friend about going". I don't know though, I'll have to think on that one...

I've been searching online for an hour for a song that we danced to, and I finally found it!

As we danced to the song, he looked at me, and said, "You know, I =really= like this song", and I told him I was just thinking the very same thing...

The man has a romantic soul...

From the Keeper of the Stars

It was no accident me finding you

Someone had a hand in it

Long before we ever knew

Now I just can't believe you're in my life

Heaven's smilin' down on me

As I look at you tonight

You can listen to it here, if you like:

Ihave to say I am surprised at some of the responses - "your Rob" and "stars are shining" - they have not even had a real date yet! IMHO it is harmful to get expectations up until you have been dating steadily and consistently for a few months and even then the most you can excpet is that you don't have to wait for him to call you for a date if you are exclusive. I've had many - many - incredibly romantic first dates - flowers, songs, kisses, dancing, romantic walks in the park, picnics, etc - and I never - ever - have expectations for anything including a second date - anything can happen - the man can meet someone else, he might have a girlfriend, he imight just be after sex - you can't know and what is the poit of getting expectations up - so that if he doesn't call - for whatever reason - you will be devastated as opposed to upset, but reasonably casual and ready to move on in a few days (after one or two dates that is). Even if you believe in love at first sight or fate or destiny isn't it the better course to see if those lovely delicious feelings are borne out in reality?

I thought the poster's description was reasonable - she knows she can't get her expectations up - but the responses - I found a little over the top (so shoot me ;-))

Let me say that I have just used the impression "your Rob" in making a better difference to my Rob. Also possible to call them Rob 1 and Rob 2 if you would like that better!

I don't think that Catherine is already expecting him to be her man or is making amazing plans which go further than perhaps set another date, she just had a good time and is happy about it. So why not enjoying it by being a little bit crazy!? Perhaps we are just not all that realistic like you are ;-)
