Where to begin.
Friday I had my 'date' and I was extremely nervous all day. I psyche myself up and over-think everything. I met him once before but it was in a group setting so being alone would be different. He was cute but quiet. I'm not used to seeing quiet guys. I had to talk a lot, maybe more than usual, just to keep things going and I really don't enjoy talking about myself that much. We had a beer and then headed over to see the Avengers which I enjoyed. It was so long though that I had to fight to stay awake. The movie ended at almost 1 in the morning and then came the part of first dates that I HATE...the end. Do we hug? What if he tries to kiss me? What if I'm not feeling it? In the end I gave him a quick hug and headed out. I don't want to lead him on into thinking I want something more with a kiss but when a guy pays for dinner I feel like I owe him something? I'm weird. This is why I like to pay for myself on dates. So that was that. You'd think with all of the practice I have going on first dates I'd be a pro at this.
Saturday my friend and I went to the drive in to see Dark Shadows. Going to the drive in was something I did a lot in Montana. It made me miss home. We didn't prepare very well so we ended up sitting in the car instead of under the stars but we had a lot of fun. People watching at the drive in is most excellent. The movie was okay. I expected it to be more of a comedy and while it had its funny moments, it was not. I still enjoyed it though and the soundtrack was really good.
Meanwhile, my friend texted me and let me in on a lead to an absolutely adorable guy whom I knew nothing of. He is a tattoo artist and one of our mutual friends goes to him. I messaged this mutual friend to see if he was single and it turns out, he is. I ended him sending him a message myself asking him out for beers and he said yes. Know I am having really really good butterflies. I don't want to get too ahead of myself but I'm hoping we can grab some beers soon and see what happens.
