First Date

It has been quite a while since I sat down to write. I know, I promised to try to blog weekly but I haven't quite managed it (not at all!!). I get plenty of ideas but it's always when I don't have the time or energy to do it. I know that it's a matter of forming good habits but I've never been known for good habits (lol). I suppose that I haven't had the right motivation to write up until recently, that is.

I had a rather nice "first date" last weekend. Woo hoo! Trust me, this is a momentous occasion. It's not that I never have a date, although they are kind of few-and-far-between, it's the quality of date that was nice. It's amazing how many guys out there literally only have one thing on their mind. These guys want to hop in the sack on the first date! Never mind getting to know me or forming a friendship or anything like that - let's have a drink then get "down to business". Yeesh!

I met this guy online. I've enjoyed meeting a few nice people that way since I don't hang out in bars too much and, besides, who wants to pick someone up in a bar when they're compromised by booze. Trust me, I am not a good girl when corrupted by vodka! We corresponded for a couple of weeks before meeting and liked what we heard so decided to meet for coffee (tea in my case). This is all we did; we talked, got a look at each other and walked away with a smile.

The best part is that we are still talking and he is definitely interested! I always worry about meeting a new person, you see, because I'm not exactly a classic beauty. Don't get me wrong, I'm not ugly but I am overweight and it takes a special guy to see my beauty and appreciate it. It seems that he is that kind of special guy.

We're going to take it one day at a time, starting out as friends (with benefits) and dating and see where it goes. We both have kids (his are older) and he is working six days a week right now so we're going to keep it light and fun for now.

That's more than enough for me right now and has me walking around with a goofy grin on my face. Hell, he's even motivated me to get back to my blog. It's a miracle!
