New Hope

Sunday, June 25, 2006

So I had a lunch date today- a blind date to be exact. A mutual friend set us up. And let me just say- that friend just became a much better friend. I had a great time! First of all, he came to pick me up...something that doesn't happen too much anymore and always scores points in my book. We went to Sweetwater Tavern (one of my favorite low-key places) and had a great lunch (and a few drinks). He was great- intelligent, polite, funny, and cute. And he seemed genuinely interested in what I was saying. And, very importantly, we made plans for a second date before he dropped me off (take notes, guys, this guy did everything perfectly). So, since there is a second date scheduled, I have to come up with a clever nickname for him.

I know I'm supposed to be taking time off from dating, but I couldn't help myself. Even if things don't work out with this guy, at least it's given me a little hope that I won't end up being a lonely old spinster.

kassy- oohhh...that's a good one! I'll have to use that.

I could subsist completely off of the sweet rolls at Sweetwater. In fact, right now I'm actually a little peeved that you mentioned the place, because now my mouth is watering.

Bah.

Glad it went well, though. Even if you're making me hungry.

I-66- oh, I love those rolls. Sweetwater is so damn good! Sorry I made you hungry.

Just take time off from bad dating. Mr. DIR seems to know what to do.

Ashburnite 6/25/2006 07:22:00 PM  

mjb- I just hope he isn't too good. it's been my experience that guys who do everything right are up to no good.

That's awesome! you're right... sounds quite promising. Low key was good. Maybe your next date can be a little more active? I would say something outside but this mugginess is deadly! nothing like sweaty armpits to turn your date on.. hahahahaa!!

Good luck as! :-)

ash,
take it slow with DIR and see if he can continue his chivalry. maybe it is finally your time to meet a nice person for a change. it could happen you know.

Ashburnite 6/26/2006 09:43:00 AM  

sweet- thanks :-)

raincouver- yeah, I definitely think we'll be keeping it inside... way too humid out.

mgc- I really hope so.

Woo hoo! Go Ash!! :-D

Yes, we must be kept up-to-date. Don't spare a detail. ;)

So by doing it right, he just wasn't an asshole?

I think I need to date more girls who have dated jerks in the past - it'll make me seem like a shining star for stuff I do anyway.

woooowhooooooooo...you go girl...glad to hear something going right for a change...And, I hope your feeling better...have a good day, talk to ya later
:)just me

Ashburnite 6/26/2006 11:11:00 AM  

nicole- don't worry...I'll keep you all informed :-)

andy- unfortunately, it takes very little to impress me anymore. What's that say about some of my previous dates?

kirsten- thanks...and I'm feeling much better (finally).

Tara 6/26/2006 12:30:00 PM  

I hope he continues to be the best guy, Ashburn. You certainly deserve it. If he's not, he has a whole bunch of people that will volunteer to kick his ass.

Yaaaay.

I'm rooting for this guy to be decent.

And I'm glad you're taking the chance.

Ashburnite 6/26/2006 02:21:00 PM  

tara- hehe..thank-you :-)

david- thanks...I hope he's decent too.

Yay! Sweetwater is my FAVORITE!
