It's been almost three years since DD and going on 1 1/2 years post divorce and I finally went on my first date! It was a completely enjoyable evening with an intelligent gentleman with a great sense of humour (and yes, all the courtesies that come with it - opening doors, walking on the outside of the sidewalk - god, I love chivalry
). We spent 4 1/2 hours at the restaurant talking about anything and everything. It was such a pleasure to be with an interesting, interested man. While we parted with a hug, we are making plans to go out again.
I had doubts that I would ever get to this point after all the hurtful things my Ex said and did, but it is really nice to be appreciated by a man!
