Thimble's Dating Life Update...
Tue, 10-28-2003 - 12:16am
Well, I've been dating M for a month, now. Things are going really well and I'm really happy with how our relationship has progressed up to this point.

What's caught me off guard is how different I am with her than with the previous women I've dated. I feel so darn mature! LOL. I mean, I don't act mature when I'm with her -I'm my usual goofy self. I just seem to have a better understanding of my own feelings and of what she's going through with me. It's almost like the other dates I've been on were rehearsals. I find myself intentionally restraining myself a lot. My instincts say "call her right now!". But my mind says "its okay to let her miss you a little". I've been following my head instead of my emotions a lot. This has been of immeasurable value to me as I haven't pushed the physical interaction as much as I could have. We've just "made out" for the first time this past Saturday, and I intend to continue to let things develop gradually. (This may seem slow to some of you, but I should add that she's very inexperienced)

It's interesting to me that taking things slow has allowed me to appreciate the true her more and more, and not let infatuation override reality.

Wish me luck!

Thim - taking lots of cold showers

Good for you! :-) It sounds like things are going really well for you. And I think it's just fabulous of you to take things slowly w/her physically - I so appreciate it when a man does that. Especially important b/c she's inexperienced. Hope things continue to go well! :-)
