Every Claim You Stake, I'll be Watching You

So I'm grateful for the first really positive date experience I've had in ages--good Mexican and margaritas followed by The Police in concert. There was no chatting about couples counseling with his last girlfriend, how he needs a woman who "can take care of him, if I know what he means," attempts to get me drunk, or other inappropriate behavior that would make me wish I had stayed at home and watched Grey's Anatomy online in my pajamas. Instead there was talk about music, traveling, faith, books, evolution, and other things that genuinely capture my interest; in short, our conversation is as easy in person as it's been on the phone. And he was a complete gentleman, and I enjoyed meeting some of his friends and catching up with one of our mutual friends too. So as Aaron would say +1 for a good date with someone well-read, bright, and fun. And AM, you'll be disappointed to learn (although surely not surprised) that no making out occurred. The raciest things got was when The Police played my favorite--"Don't Stand to Close to Me."

p.s. I'm grateful to be sleeping in a queen size bed tonight! I will not miss my twin bed in the toolshed this week.

Was dinner all of you or just the two of you?

Way to go!It sounds like an awesome night - and who doesn't LOVE the Police?

AM: We met before dinner and then met up with his friends, but for the most part, everyone was just talking to the person that sat beside them (the restaurant was loud thanks to Tech fans) so we talked the entire time.

PE: Exactly--they have so many good songs.

Nice! That sounds like a great evening. I love those dates where the conversation just flows so it feels like you are talking to a friend and not having those long awkward pauses that remind you that YOU ARE ON A DATE WITH A STRANGER. Fingers crossed the next one is even better!

Sounds like a great first date! And suffice to say he never returned my "wink". :)

Oh, got to love a good date. I'm jealous, even if there wasn't any making out.

You're not online to give me the uncensored details, so I'll go out on a limb and say this actually qualified as a +2.

I'll operate under the assumption there will be a future date as well? Question being, how soon...
