Our First Date
We went out on the town last night, visiting one of my favorite cities in Maine and a few of my favorite establishments. Like any first date, I was nervous as all get out, but you could tell she was calm as steel. As we got to know each other, it was sort of a dance, one that I am sure will continue for the forseeable future. Like any new relationship, it is all about balance, discovering each others likes and dislikes, learning about each others strengths and weaknesses, and all that sort of stuff.
For instance, on our first date, I learned that she likes to take things slow, definitely no rushing this girl. She also seems to really not care for bright lights too much, something that I will have to be very conscious of as we get to know one another. Oh, did I mention she is slow, not in a bad way, but in an old school sort of way. She likes to just take her time, looking pretty, in no rush. I can tell that I will need to bring the same mentality to our relationship.
We ate dinner, talked, had some wine and then took a walk through town. She is one of those types that needs to eat constantly, so it is a good thing I brought an extra snack because she quickly bonked, her energy was just zapped, even though we had a decent dinner, not a full one, but decent. I guess I will just have to keep an eye out on those sorts of things and continue to carry extra energy sources at all times.
I love the way she looks and dresses, all black, very simple, nothing too loud. She is definitely a quiet one, not looking to draw attention to how she behaves or what she has to say. Looking back over the evening, it was clear that she has great potential. Potential in the way that keeps me both nervous and excited. She is clearly the type of gal that will push me to my limits, help me grow as an individual, and constantly remind me to slow down and just take my time.
Yep, I am excited, I think this is really going to work.
