It seems that my second date will actually be my third date.
Did I mention that my new friend lives 1 1/2 hours away from me? Yes, so seeing him will be sporadic, but I have learned that the desire to see someone outweighs the obstacles that are thrown in your path. Obstacles, such as jobs, can be overcome, if the will is strong enough.
Tuesday night, Robert called me expessing a desire to see me yesterday. He had the day off (in the middle of the week..imagine that?) and was wondering if he could meet me after work. Well, after thinking awhile, I said that I was due for a day off also. What good is the first flushes of love, if you can't throw caution to the wind?
Yes, I was a bad bad girl. I called in sick and spent the day with Robert. We had a wonderful time and decided that we had much in common and a good chance of maintaining a long term relationship. In other words, HE LIKES ME, and wants to date me exclusively to see where it takes us. Since I am definitely not the type of person who can date around when I like someone, I felt it wouldn't be hasty to accept that offer.
I feel like a kid in a candy store whose parents gave her money to buy whatever she wants and the candy she is salivating over wants to be eaten.
