First Date

Well, not quite. It was suppose to be tonight but was pushed back a few more days. I guess it could be worse, it could have been cancelled all together. But even worse still would be silence. I should mention that we agreed to meet two day before and during those two days inbetween unanswered texts. That’s a good way to get me to overt think things. But rational thinking prevailed. I took my friends advice, stop thinking, and it seems to be working.

What I am thinking about is, this is technically my first First Date.

Ever.

I’m 29.

I’ve been over the other times I’ve been out with people where it was just the other person and my self. Those times just never felt like one, it was just friendly company, for me it was a one sided emotional torture test.

Fun stuff.

Other times it’s group outings that scorch the idea of date out of the event.

Actual fun stuff.

Now this time it’s with an actual interested party. And this is kind of hard to believe but this is uncharted territory. Kinda funny and kinda sad. But exhilarating all the same.

PS — This is my first post, testing the waters with an anecdote of what is going on in this head of mine.
