Successful first date!
Fri, 07-16-2010 - 1:57pm

Last night was my first date with the guy I met on e-harmony. I was so incredibly nervous beforehand... I don't think I'd been that nervous for a date in a really long time! (Maybe because this was my first "real" date with a guy I'd met online.)

We met at a pub near my place. He was so much more attractive in person than in his photos! I was pleasantly surprised but that also made me more nervous! Anyway, the weather was gorgeous so we sat outside on the patio.

The conversation flowed the entire night. We were either laughing or smiling 98% of the time. We had a *lot* in common, including common future goals, hobbies, etc.

He was a perfect gentleman. At the end of the night, he wouldn't even let me see how much the bill was for (which, IMO, is quite old-fashioned, as it seems guys like to let you know how much they're spending on you), let alone pay for any of it.

He drove me home and I did get my goodnight kiss. ;) I told him I'd love to do this again and he said, "I think I would too... no, I KNOW I would." He asked about my availability and then said he'd call me to set something up.

About 15 minutes after getting home, I got a text msg from him saying how nice it was to meet me and he's really looking forward to seeing me again soon.

I still have this stupid grin on my face. I have a feeling I'll hear from him today so my fingers are crossed! :D
