Remember, men need laughter sometimes more than food. ~Anna Fellows Johnston
For a few weeks I sort of swore off dating. It wasn't bad, I was just starting to feel like it was a waste of time. Also, men on POF starting messaging me not realizing they had messaged me last month, when I told them I was not interested.
After reading another blog, I came across another dating site, OkCupid.com. I thought I would give it a shot. I actually like it a lot more than POF. Much more more user friendly. And you can quickly tell who is serious about dating, and who isn't.
Two weeks ago, Denali sent me a message:
If Bigfoot chased you whilst on a scooter with a cup of coffee...um, don't buy ripe bannanas that day:)
Needless to say, I decided I would go out with him. We agreed on Korean BBQ after having a long talk about southern food and Japanese food.
Meeting him at the restaurant, I saw he drove a truck, but didn't give it a second thought.
I knew going into this date, that he wasn't the most attractive man I've ever seen, but his humor was a huge turn on. He is tall and looks as Italian as it gets. I found out he has his own real estate business but he wants to go to law school. We talked about the politics of education and he showed a clear respect for educators, knowing quite a lot about the public school system in Colorado.
Our meal was fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic. We ended up heading to a bar after, where I did not run into Jew! We talked for a few hours. By midnight I was crashing. After spending an entire day at a wine festival and then having an extravagant meal, I was done. I drove him back to his truck.
It was awkward...really awkward. He gave me a high five...and I laughed my ass off. Then he hugged me, which doesn't really work when you are sitting in a truck. So then he got out, opened my door and planted one on me. I wasn't really expecting it, but there ya go. Kiss on a first date. I think I need to throw that rule out the window.
As I pulled away, I noticed his truck was a Denali.....a newer, prettier version of my Beast.
