A Date?

What the heck is a date? I haven't been on a date in god knows how long. I mean a date with a stranger, not someone I am involved with.

Well last night I had a date...*gulp*

I have been on Match.com and Yahoo Personals for 3 weeks. I have been 'winked' at by every shape, age, height, color, out there...regardless of what I had to list as my preferences!! I have always been polite and reply with the standard 'no thanks'. Some of you told me to be agreesive and 'wink' at guys that caught my eye. Well I did that and I kid you not, I got NOTHING in reply to any of them!!! Ugh men!

About a week or so ago I got a 'wink' that actually was from a normal looking guy LOL so I replied back and we have been emailing pretty much daily. Earlier this week he asked if I wanted to go to dinner *gulp*. I said yes. He lives about 45 miles from me which isn't really that far when it comes to small towns around here. He offered to come to my town so we met for dinner then decided to go for drinks after. He was a really nice, good guy. We laughed for hours and seem to get along good. There is potential for a second 'date' but nothing planned.

I am cancelling my memberships next week when my month is up. NOT because of him, but because neither of the sites did much for me so why continue ya know?? I can say I tried :)

There are quite a few free sights too... I met a couple of nice guys on there before Mr. B... like anything, you have to wade through the crap.

I'm glad you had a good date though!! Isn't that fun? You go girlfriend!!!

WOO! A DATE! So glad you had a good time and laughing was involved. If there wasn't any laughter than I would have said it was a waste. ;)
