So I went dancing...

Sorry for "hiding" my news under Gail's post! I didn't get home from Rob's till 3:30PM, then after sleeping for an hour, I had to go out and help my son bring home a TV he bought. Then I stayed at my son's place for a while. When I posted last night, I just didn't have any energy left to go into details, but wanted to say something. So there's my excuse, though yes, I was a bit embarrassed... {smile}

Anyhow, how did my night go?

Well, Rob called me from work, around 5PM to see if I was going to the dance, but I was out at the gym. So I called him back when I got home, about 7:30 and we chatted for just a few minutes. Then I had to get ready, and so we said goodbye. I was late getting to the dance, it was almost 9:30. When I walked in, I met one of the women there and she said, "he's waiting for you!" Another woman came over to comment on Rob and I. So he had obviously been talking to them about me!

OMG, I was so-o nervous! I walked up to his table, and he had a huge grin when he saw me. He introduced me to his friend, and we talked about the concert. He asked how my week went. It was really nice. We dance several slow dances together, and then...

I asked if we could go out on the deck for some air. Once outside, he put his arm around me, and we just talked. It was nice. Then he said perhaps we should go back inside, and instead I kissed him!

He let me lead the way - which was a big mistake as I had no self-control! But there was never any pressure from him. He was really sweet about it, because he could have easily taken advantage of me in the state I was...

I kept trying to stop, trying to get myself under control, but I just kept wanting to continue. I took deep breaths, we tried going back in and dancing, I stepped away from him and tried to concentrate on something else. I told him it wasn't going to happen that night. But OMG, that man turns me on! We kept ending up back out on the deck, me in his arms, kissing... {blushing}

Well, my resolve crumbled, and I agreed to go home with him. I told him we had to stop for protection, which we did. He was incredibly sensitive and gentle, so sweet and considerate. But OMG, he has incredible stamina for an old guy! He had to go out-of-town yesterday, or I'm not sure how we would have stopped! {blushing}

He promised to call me and get together, when he came back on Monday. He was just so incredible, I am now afraid he is too good to be true! There were no bad vibes, he never said anything wrong, he was just wonderful and sweet the whole time. I guess I am just afraid to let go and trust my happiness... {smile}

As I said in my earlier post, wonderful news, just go on enjoying and trust that he is not to good to be true but just good enough for you!

And yes, excuse accepted! You made it good for with this very detailed description, thanks for sharing!

So you have lost all your self-control, hm!? I am pretty sure he liked that and in fact you have just proved what is already written on your licence plate....hehehe

Have a good holiday tomorrow!
