Yep, I am going to do it ! I am going to talk about my first blind date! Even though I am older, it was just a few months ago!
As you all know, I spend most of my time with my family! That is GREAT because I love and adore my family, but it doesn't provide many opportunities to meet someone you might want to date! Nearly five years after my divorce, I still hadn't gone on a single date! So, I decided to take my chances and joined Match.com! I am happy to say that I had quite a bit of interest in my fresh profile! Quite a few men in my area messaged me! This surprised me!
I talked to a few of them, but really didn't feel like there was any kind of a match! Then this one guy that was older made contact with me! He asked me to dinner and I accepted! The date was set, and I started to get nervous!
I remained nervous for days! The night of the big date finally arrived, and I put on the only dress clothes that I own! I did my hair and make up with very shakey hands! Just as I was leaving I had Kay take a photo of me! That is my current profile photo!
We agreed to meet in the lobby of the airport before going upstairs to dinner! I was very lucky to get a parking spot right outside the door! I was there first! He came in and I put out my hand to introduce myself and he grabbed me and hugged me! By then I was shaking so badly I almost couldn't walk up the steps! I told him right off that I was very nervous because I had never done that before!
Still, dinner went very well! I found him very charming! He was good company and a complete gentleman! He hugged me again when we said goodnight, and agreed to see each other again!
There you have my craziest first!
