Subject? Best or worst first date.
I am grateful I haven’t had many worst dates because I tend to be openly fascinated with each person I encounter. Some first dates have been… ummm… more interesting than others and some of my break-ups have been hysterical… but this, for now, that I can come up with….
It is interesting because when I am not feeling well I tend to drudge up characters from my past. So I searched for him on facebook yesterday and read what I could. I don’t want to be his friend or anything, I am just curious about him.
Our first date was supposed to be an open mic followed by dinner. What a way to win my heart: agreeing to listen to poetry with me.
He didn’t know it, but the week leading up to that Friday night was extremely stressful. I needed a nice dinner and a friendly conversation companion. He chatted up a storm and I mostly smiled and nodded, but this was just right for that moment.
I was disappointed when I didn’t get a goodbye kiss. That came on date number two.
But I have to say, this date stands out as the best because #1) it was a first date after a long time without dating #2) its shape was based on what I love the most #3) even though we didn’t know each other well, the conversation flowed.
This isn't a photo from those days... it was long before digital photography - but it shows the way I felt before I went on this long ago date.Follow me on Twitter: @juliejordanscot
