First real Date details
Sun, 04-01-2012 - 4:02pm
My first "real" date with my office hottie was last night. I picked out my outfit, did my nails, curled my hair... I was excited. Office Hottie kept me guessing tho about what time we were going out... He was doing work around his house and wasn't sure when he'd be done.

He called around 6pm and said he'd pick me up at 8pm. Then by that time the weather got considerably colder soooo I did a last minute wardrobe change. Bummer, I had the best outfit picked out but it got too cold for it. I scrambled to pick an alternate.

Then I arrived to pick me up. I tell ya, it felt awesome having a guy pick me up for a date! (the last guy I dated didn't have a license ... or a job for that matter) Anyway, he was quite a gentleman getting the door for me. He held my hand in the car :) And almost the whole night, actually. So we decided to get dinner and a movie at one of those dinner theater places. It was chilly but a nice night to walk around the area while we waited for the movie to start.

We talked and laughed about all sorts of things. I think it's amazing that we get along great and that we've worked together for the past four years. I started as the shift leader on nights. Almost like his boss, so even tho I was attracted, I kept a professional distance. Then my shift changed and he took over night side shift leader. I had a new team during the day. So, now it makes more sense that we can date and it isn't awkward at work. Timing worked out, you could say.

I find him very handsome. He's 5'10" and I'm. 5'3". Perfect height which means I can wear heals and he's still taller. He has black hair (my favorite). He wears glasses which I also find very sexy. We have a very similar work style and agree on most things at work... another reason I think we gravitate to each other.

As we talked we wondered (and joked) about who at work would figure things out first. He thinks this one girl at night is going to catch on and ask him "so what's the deal with lil pepper". I think it will be the coordinator who sits in the middle and is very observant. I said he's going to catch on to the way we smile at each other. Then I joked about posting pictures of us together on Facebook to jus shock everyone (haha I would never do that for real). Or we joked about doing a Facebook checkin together. I want him to be my boyfriend already but I'll take things slow. We already talked about not having sex and just getting to be best friends. I was nervous suggesting this at first but he's on board with the idea. His words were "you can't built anything long lasting on carnal acts" So while sex would bring us closer faster, he and I both want something lasting so we're willing to wait. I think this is awesome!

Even tho I admit this is a difference dating tactic than I'm used to... and it makes me insecure at the moment. I think in the longer term this will be great thing. And make me feel more secure and stable than ever before.

When we watched the movie he held my hand. Kissed me every now and then. It was awesome.

What movie did you see? I have always wanted to go to one of those dinner theatre places. Was it worth all the hype?

We saw Hunter Games. This one was very nice. Food was restaurant quality not cheap greasy food like at some others. Expensive tho. I would go again.
