Who Would Have Thought..

Wow, is the best way to describe the pure bliss I am experiencing these past few days. So I met my first match.com hook up last Thursday evening, but before I go there allow me to detail how things happened. So we had our first phone conversation last Wednesday evening after we agreed via email to meet up at local Starbucks (it was the safest place I could think of to make a quick exit if necessary). So the first thing I noticed when I spoke to him is his voice. He has the best voice I’ve heard in a while especially for a white guy. You would swear he was black. It’s rather funny because I am the opposite; I have a white name and a matching voice to go with (lol).

So what I thought would be a 20 minute conversation turned into 3 hours. It was absolutely refreshing to have such an engaging first phone conversation. It turns out we have a lot in common. It was imperative after this great conversation that we meet up immediately, I will not fall in love with a voice and have no clue what he looks like. So we ended up meeting for drinks after work Thursday evening. It was just my luck we were both attracted to one another. Who would have thought match.com may actually work.

So I had class that same evening, so we only met for about an hour with plans to see other the next evening (Friday night). So Friday came and we had dinner at a great restaurant located in an outdoor retail shopping strip. It’s the perfect date spot, you can go from restaurant/ bar while shopping if you want. I told my co workers about my big date and they all decided to have a girl’s night and crash my date. Well maybe not crash, but I was cool with them meeting this guy. Nothing like having the approval of a few friends.

So we’re about 40 minutes into dinner when I get a text that my friends were there. Two of them came over and sat down at our table for about 10 minutes and then rolled out. When I say the dinner was lovely, it’s truly an understatement. Out waiter was great. In fact he complimented us on being such a nice looking couple and gave us well wishes. He could have been working the tip factor but I did feel like he was being genuine. After our dinner the waiter brought out a cute dessert for free. Here’s a picture of the plate.



After dinner we met my friends over at the bar area of the restaurant. He was a good sport especially since he wasn’t obligated this early into the game to meet let alone entertain my peeps. He bought a round of drinks and shared a laugh or two, and we rolled out. It was the perfect summer evening and the perfect atmosphere for great company. There’s also a lake on the property so we decided to walk around it and found an area to sit and talk. The chemistry is undeniable, I feel like a little girl when I am around him. The kisses are very sweet. The interesting part of one of our many conversations that evening was when we both admitted that this time we wanted to try things “different” this time around. Not rushing into the physical part, and just approaching this encounter totally out of our normal way of behaving.

I don’t know where this will lead but I am having a hell of ride and it’s been less than a week. I have it bad people, I think of him all of the time. I smile when I think of him and I feel like this is right, like he may be the one for me. WOW…we have another date this evening…

It sounds like you had a wonderful date, and I hope that it continues. Word of advice, if you really like this guy, take your time and don't get physical with him too soon. If he's into you, he'll wait. Get to really know what he's about. I've found that people can put on a good act for about three to six months and then after that, what you see is what you get. Wheather it's good or bad. You're young and you still have time so don't rush into anything. Take it one day at a time and have fun. Don’t stress yourself out about the future, okay? ;-)

I was there...4 years ago with my internet date. Now, I'm almost engaged and pregnant, lmao.

Ms. ATL- I appreciate your advice. The only thing I am rushing is the aftermath of all of this, I am so curious to know where this all will lead. But in the meantime I am truly enjoying my time with him.

Blu- I love your pic! And thanks for the positive reinforcement.

Black- WOW, then you know exactly what I am talking about. How funny, I didn’t know all of your current joys were a result of your internet dating (how cool). I am definitely enjoying this moment. Its like I crave seeing him everyday, in fact we have another date this evening (wed.) and we had one this past Monday as well.

It took about 9 frogs (that I REFUSED to kiss), but I finally found my prince at 10 internet dates, lol. Funny thing is, I hung up my hat at the 9th guy...I was so DONE, but I happened across his ad and decided to try...just...one...more.

:-)

I hope it works out well for you! Keep us posted!!
