My date Brian and I started talking on Tinder where I never thought I would meet a decent guy to be honest but I like our conversations a lot and decided to add him on Facebook. We continued talking throughout the next couple weeks and he offered a meet I was reluctant but agreed. We decided to meet up for Chinese food and while I was waiting I was Soooooo nervous.
He pulled up next to me and when he got out of the car I was completely taken aback. He was 6’3 and every kind of handsome with blue eyes and the look of a rugged hard working man. I smiled immediately. I was thinking ‘no way will this guy be interested in me I’m short ,I’m a big girl and he’s out of my league’ as most of us feel.
He didn’t look like he wanted to run away and smiled right back. We sat down to eat and read the little Chinese zodiac and of course it said we were the least compatible of couples so that was a lovely awkward start!
Mid way through the date we both relaxed a little and what happens… I go to cut some broccoli and it immediately flies off my plate creating a huge mess very embarrassing at pretty much the same moment he choked on some chewy Mongolian beef and had to spit it out!It was nice to see we were both imperfect.
We stayed in the restaurant talking untill closing and we continued to a local bar for a drink. At the end of the night he gave me a great big hug and asked if we could do it again and I let out a big shocked “REALLY!!? ” We’ve gone out several times now and he does the sweetest things like text good morning and kiss me softly on the cheek.
I just know it’s the beginning of a great thing :)
