And onto date #4…
The Date (pictured above was my outfit of choice)
Okay, so I went out on a “date” last night. I use the term loosely because we met up for happy hour at a bar/lounge. So in ThinnerThoughts’ footsteps I joined OkCupid *sigh*. I never really saw myself joining one of those sites but at the same time was really tired of meeting guys at a bar. Most of them just want to get to laid or are utter bags of douche. So I signed up, made my profile, and waited to see what happened or how many creepers would come out of the woodwork. I really like the fact that I could filter out people, like age range I have filtered is 25 to 35 and must live within 25 miles of me, etc.
Gladly, when someone messages you, you can see their profile pic, and let’s be honest here, there HAS to be that initial physical attraction at first, and if I didn’t feel that initial attraction, I for the most part just wouldn’t even open the message. Then there were some that caught my eye…so I explored. Seem normal enough, definitely cute and pretty local…not too shabby. So we text, chat and add each other on Facebook (because you know that is like super important so we can troll each others profiles and see if we REALLY want to meet or not).
Anyway, so now the date. We meet at said bar, I was a little late because of stupid parking. I stroll in, mentally crossing my fingers that he isn’t a troll that just pictures well. Think we were both pleasantly surprised (or relieved haha) and we hugged it out.
In the end, he seems like a really good guy, good values and we laughed a lot, shared a lot of stories, how we grew up, family, we both tried alligator tacos for the first time and there weren’t any awkward silences. So all is good. We both said we should go ride our beach cruisers soon, but this weekend I have my Warrior Dash competition so I’m busy, so we will see!
Let’s hope THIS doesn’t happen tonight! ‘Tis is le “date” night.
Confession: Kinda nervous for the “date” tomorrow
Well, I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “date”…more like a hang out. Anyway, it’s been over a year since having gone out on a proper date due for it taking that long to get over previous crap.
What to wear, what to wear…
P.S. We’re going to get Japanese BBQ :)
