Another great night! I am intrigued. Relaxing is not something that I do well. My phone is always in my hand. I am generally fidgety and doing multiple things at once. This is the second date and this one much like the first one followed a stressful day. This day was far less eventful than Friday, but work emergency threatened to make a debut just as I was about to leave for the day which resulted in me being a little late.
I was nervous this time. Maybe because I am interested. Maybe because I know he is. I’m not sure the reason, all I know is that I was. The nerves began to fade as the evening progressed. We talked and talked and talked. We talked about a lot. I talked a lot might be a better way to describe it. I’m pretty sure I talked about things that really should not be talked about, but he was so great about it.
The evening started with a glass of wine and bruschetta. We were sitting on the patio at DiVine bistro in Chandler. Eventually we moved on to a bottle of wine and dinner. It really took us a long time to get to the point of ordering because we just kept talking.
At one point, my date stops and asks me if I heard the song that was just on. I hadn’t, I mean how could I? I was talking about something through the whole thing. He told me that it was perfect and that the song fit the moment and my excitement about whatever it was that I felt the need to ramble on about (ramble is my word not his) and it was a perfect fit for the song. How awesome was that? I am pretty animated and I have always thought it would be great if I met someone who really enjoyed that about me. I think he does. I don’t think he does, I know he does. He said so.
Again, time flew by like the time keeper is speeding up time. The time just passes by without any warning. It doesn’t seem like there is enough of it. I could have stayed there all night. There is just something about him. Something in his eyes that is gentle and calming. I don’t feel stressed. I don’t feel the need to check my phone or see if I have missed anything. It is such a foreign feeling.
The hope and possibility that this quest could be just this simple and that this could be the one is looming over me. Again, I’m not putting a label on it or putting pressure on the possibility and I am not going to stop looking yet, but… It would be pretty great for this to be the beginning of the end.
It is late (or early) and I have a meeting tomorrow, so I guess I had better sign off for the night. It has been a good one. I am looking forward to many more hours in the days to come. 🙂
