Went out with a group of friends to a little local place to listen to a band. I can not remember the last time I went out in my town. Years maybe. I have been really isolated.
A really cute guy who was friends with someone in my group was there. We talked and he offered to walk me home. He was respectful and asked the right questions. Questions I would have asked like When was your divorce final? Are you currently involved with someone? General questions children/family.

Then he asked if he could call me. No pressure, just coffee. A complete gentleman.

My long winded point is that someone asked me out!
A date is a novel thing. It will be nice to have a cup of coffee with someone.

Keep it coming, you WILL have a happy ending as you all live happily ever after 💐

Good stuff!

Love it, rising. Enjoy your coffee.

Gentlemen do exist! I'm glad one found you and asked you out!

He called. I was in the shower. I called back but got VM. He called again and we talked. 2 hours later he asks if we could have dinner this weekend (instead of coffee). If this does not work out it has been a wonderful experience and he seems to be a truly nice person.

He called and left VM. Apologized that he was not in touch yesterday (I had no expectation) and invited me to dinner tomorrow night.

I am feeling pretty level headed about this. I might find that I like him or maybe not. I was feeling ready to jump into the dating world but I am not feeling desperate to be in a relationship.

It is a little scary but I'm in a good place and it will be nice to go out to dinner with a date.

That's a great place to be, rising.

Still a bit of an on going saga. We plan a date and a storm hits. We are supposed to go out at 7PM but at 4:00 the snow is coming down at a fierce rate. I call and suggest that we postpone. He is relieved. He told me that he had thought of calling me with the same suggestion but did not want me to think that he was not interested in our date.
Next scheduled date I am in the middle of a technological crisis. My computer crashes while I am in the middle of completing school work. He tells me he is buried in paperwork. Both okay with the delay.

I am not worried. He keeps calling. I am not counting the minutes till we see each other again. If it happens well that is great. I am sure we will have a date soon. He continues to call.

This is a good place.

*burst of excited clapping*

I love it! That's how I hope things happen for me some day-- we just meet, and it's low-key, and then we just get to know each other. I don't need the "thunderbolt" (for all you Godfather fans), and I'm not really interested in pursuing an active search for someone. I love your story! Thanks for the hope!

And yes, please keep us posted. I hope you have a wonderful first meeting!

risingfromashes posted 2/18/2014 21:51 PM

Thank you Trying! That is exactly how I feel. No Drama. It might work out or maybe not. I will not settle for something because I do not want to be alone. The most alone I ever felt was when I was married. I am not going to settle for something less than I am worth.

Will keep posting.

risingfromashes posted 2/18/2014 21:57 PM

Doesn't the woman he feels the thunderbolt for blow up in a car bomb explosion? Just saying this to bolster your statement!

Didn't see this thread when it first hit the SI airwaves. Seeing it now and smiling.

risingfromashes posted 2/25/2014 21:05 PM

We both had to cancel for work or weather reasons. Looks like there will be a date tomorrow night. What does it mean that I am happy but do not have butterflies? Maybe I am realistic or old or cynical? Gosh what a build up to just having dinner!
