Update--for all you who read that about a month ago I had a date with a guy who asked me to a dance. I hadn't heard from him since Easter so I figured that was it and he wasn't interested. Back when we had the date, I had told him about this "dance camp" that my dance school has--I wasn't asking him to go, I was just teling him that I was going and he said he might go, but I didn't think he would since it's kind of expensive. What it is --they have it at a really nice beach resort and you can take classes all day Sat. & Sun. and then Sat. night they have a nice dinner dance.
So I get an email from him Friday that says he is going to the dance. I was so surprised. I went down Sat. a.m. & figured I wouldn't see him until night but then I am eating lunch with some friends during the break & he walked into the restaurant, looking for me. We ended up taking a class together, then I was supposed to have another class, but he convinced me not to go to it & take a walk on the beach. It was still kind of cold out there so we went into the bar & had coffee. Then I went to change for dinner. We had a nice dinner--he ended up basically sitting at a table with all the single ladies who are my friends and was very good natured about it. I told him he had to dance with all of them and he probably did cause I was also dancing with the other men I know. I was staying over at the hotel but he was driving home, about an hour. Around 10:00 he said he was going to leave soon & was heading to the men's room. When he didn't come back for a while, and people were pretty much leaving the dance, I figured he might be in the bar trying to get coffee (which he had mentioned) and instead 2 of the girls had lured him into getting a beer! I sat down for a drink and then a few more friends came in & we ended up hanging out there for a while. When he left, he kissed me on the lips in front of everybody. I had already made plans to go to a dance next Sat. that our meetup group is planning so I asked him if he was going also--he said "I wouldn't miss that" so hopefully he will actually go & we'll see each other again. It will be interesting to see how he acts in this group which is more his friends than mine, including his exGF (and still friend) who is the organizer (and she is someone I know & like).
What I liked about him was that he is fun and will joke around but he also has good manners, which you don't seem to find in a lot of men these days. For ex, we had to go to the bar to get drinks during dinner cause they didn't have a cocktail waitress in there, so besides asking if I wanted a drink, since my friend was standing there, he also asked her if he could buy her one. And when we were in the bar, my friend had a dress on that had thin staps and she was complaining that the a/c was on too high & she was cold, so he gave her his suit jacket to wear. So I definitely like him--just waiting to see how he feels about me!
