It actually went really well. I was my usual nervous and neurotic self. He was very nice, and I really like him. We met at a really casual place for wings, and stayed to talk for a couple of hours.

I'm not sure what to think, because he's quite a bit younger than me, and in a different place in life. However, he was intelligent, mature, well read, and ambitious.

It was the most "normal" date that I've ever had. I guess that's a sad commentary on my life. Great kiss at the end of the date.

The best part : I got carded. Hey, I realize that they must card everyone, but I'm taking it for what it is and calling it an overall good night!

Brave woman, wings on a first date. I'd be wearing them...

He sounds nice. And *normal*.

Normal is good; I'm happy for you.

It's nice to have a good one sprinkled in every once in a while to keep up hope -- glad you had a nice time!!!

I agree with FaithFool wings + me = a mess.

Normal is alway wonderful.

MyVoice posted 3/9/2014 15:47 PM

Glad you had fun, normal is always good:) what is carded?

Happy for you WM.

Even if the differences, esp place in life, mean the romantic part doesn't work out having a good friend come out of it wouldn't be all bad. And the experience reminds you what a "normal" date should be.

MyVoice, carded is checked for ID. The drinking age in my stTe is 21. I'm 45. I think they're supposed to card anyone that appears to be under 30.

Sounds great! Good for you!

Woo-hoo! Spring is springing

Amazonia posted 3/10/2014 06:42 AM

But the real question is, does he have respectable taste in beer?

thebighurt posted 3/10/2014 07:10 AM

Happy for you. I guess there is hope.

Yay for a great first date! Any plans for a second date??

I love it when I get carded!

Williesmom posted 3/10/2014 08:16 AM

Yes, there are plans for a 2nd date.

He wanted to see me yesterday, but I told him that I just want to ease into this a bit and take our time. He was OK with that, but has been randomly texting, so that's fine.

It's funny because I want a relationship, just not a 24/7 all consuming one. I think it projects that I'm not interesting in a relationship.

I tried to explain to him that I don't really know what I want, but I know for sure what I DON'T want. It's a learning process for me.

He asked me about my worst date ever, so I told him about my date with Captain Coupon. At least that date had some value to make us both laugh.

Glad it went well!

And an update:

Seeing him again tonight. He's bringing steaks to my house. He said he would cook if I provide the grill.

Yikes. I'm nervous.

cmego posted 3/14/2014 12:36 PM

Make sure there is a bit of alcohol so you will relax and be your wonderful self

Have fun!
