I'm not in love with him, but one day I will be. He is the most genuine, funny, caring, respectful guy I have EVER met. His life fascinates me. I am extremely attracted to him, which is a plus plus plus plus. His personality makes me even more attracted to him. He does everything possible to make me smile. He encourages me to do what I want.
I have always wanted a guy who accepts me for me. Someone who asks me about my life goals, relationships wants/needs, and my past, but not someone who has to pry it out of me. I have opened up to him more than anyone I've ever tried to date. He listens to me and actually listens.
He has also opened up to me. I haven't had to pry anything out of him. I'm so used to pulling teeth just to get information out of someone that I try having a relationship with. It's not that way with him. He is resistant to some topics which is totally fine, but I don't pressure him to spill every single detail. There are a LOT of things that we both need to learn about each other and I'm willing to take my sweet precious time with him.
He wants to spoil me. I don't know what that's like. I don't care if he never buys me one single thing, but just knowing that he wants to..makes me want him even more. I'm not the kind of girl to ask for stuff like that as far as "Buy me this" "I want that, will you get it for me?" No, that's not me.
So okay enough with the mushy crap! The date itself in detail:
Dinner at one of my favorite sushi places in town. He loves sushi as much as I do, which is A LOT! He got there before me and as I was driving I had a million butterflies in my stomach. I was so worried that he wouldn't like me.
I couldn't figure out what the hell I was going to wear, so there's that. I wore a semi dressy tank top and I'm super self conscious about my arms and what they look like in a tank top. But I figured.. if he wants to like me he's gotta see me for me. So here I go in my Silver capri jeans that make my butt look amazing and my tank top.. dying to meet this guy.
When I walk in, I hesitate because there he is. He hasn't seen me yet. He is just as gorgeous as I thought. Absolutely perfect. I walk up to the booth and ask if the other side was taken. He looked up at me and had the best smile I've ever seen. First words out of his mouth, "You look beautiful."
NEVER in my life has this happened...
So we ate, conversation was awesome..never had a quiet moment. Very balanced, he and I talked about the same amount of time so I didn't look like an idiot rambling on because I was so nervous.
By the time we got our food, I felt like I had been on a million dates with him and we were just catching up. As if I had known him from somewhere before. I really liked feeling so comfortable with him.
After dinner (I don't ever do this) I invited him over to watch a movie and just relax. We were going to build a fire in the pit, but we never made it out there. We sat in the living room just talking away for over an hour before we turned on the t.v. He was all about me and I was all about him.
I didn't want the date to end..ever. So I saw him again yesterday. That's why I was a bit delayed in posting! Sorry ladies ;) I know you were just DYING to hear about it. We went hiking to a waterfall (insert heart eyes emoji) He pushed me up that trail, as in, kept encouraging me while also being patient with me. It was kind of a hard hike, but I made it :) I like the way that he wants me to be active as in working out, hiking, running, etc. Stuff that I thoroughly enjoy doing, but I've always lacked motivation. He gives me that motivation. I love it.
After the hike we went back to the apt for a nap then got dressed for some karaoke at the local marina that my friends and I go to every Wednesday. The impression he made on my friends was just beyond compare. Of course my g/f drilled him with extremely important questions while I was away from the table. His answers confirmed that what I'm doing is right. Even if we're rushing into things..I know that I am with someone who I deserve. We both simultaneously deleted our online dating apps/profiles. And that's that.
Oh and I'm seeing him today after work, too. Be jealous :)
