*Sigh*

As I mentioned on Tuesday, I had a first date last night. Due to my ridiculous amount of reading for class, we only got to have dinner together. The time spent though was fantastic. He is a complete gentleman. He picked me up at my house, opened the car door for me, held the door at the restaurant...the little things that many people take for granted. We went to a nice Italian place right near my house, and it was lovely.

The conversation flowed well, even with my awkward self present. I mean, talking through texts is very different from face to face conversation. I'm far more witty in writing than I am in person. It went really well though, which is great news. As I said, we only got to have dinner together but those couple of hours were fantastic. I finally got to hear his singing voice, which is incredible, in the car. Turns out we're quite the musical pair, but both rather shy. Both of us are huge fans of The Spill Canvas and he's actually taken to learning ones of my favorite songs by them on guitar. Um, can he be more perfect?

After saying goodnight, sans kiss (the right moment is key), I took about studying. Minutes after stepping into the house I receive a text from him telling me how much he enjoyed dinner. We chatted for a bit, although Lysistrata had taken the majority of my attention, and he sends me a text saying, "FYI: I'm really attracted to you :D" Obviously, I respond in kind and in short we'll be seeing each other again on Saturday night. I've got a good feeling about this one...

Ah, so my first post that I mentioned and it's a rather happy one. Very happy, actually.

I have a date tomorrow night with a guy I've been talking to for the last month or so. At first I thought it would be weird getting to know him since the only reason we connected was because he saw a picture of me on my friend's Facebook. He inquired about me to her one day when he saw her at the gym. She suggested that if he was interested that he should just send me a friend request. He did, and it took me a while to actually add him. I've never done the online dating thing, and I've always been a bit leery because people can pretend online much easier than face to face, but this wasn't quite the same. I talked to my friend first, since she went to high school with him, to find a little bit out about him. She assured me that he was a nice guy and through all of the chats that we've had since, I can do nothing but agree with her.

He's funny, intelligent, talented, but most of all he respects me. Today, most guys will say or do anything to get into a girl's bed, but he's just not like that. It's wonderful to have a guy compliment the things about you that have made you so insecure in the past. I've had people tell me that I've been single for so long because I'm smart and independent, and that guys are intimidated by that. He's not though. He appreciates those things about me. He understands that I'm not the type of girl that's going to put out on the first date. Hell, it could be a very long time before we get there, but he's fine with that. It seems almost weird, right?

Now, we haven't gotten to see each other much since we started talking; he's come out with my friends and I twice, and he visited me at work the other day, but I'm really optimistic about this one. My last relationship was all sorts of messed up (dating a best friend can get messy beyond belief), so I'm going to just relax and enjoy getting to know him. Hopefully, the first date will lead to more, but we'll see what happens.

Wish me luck! :)

I really need to start using this thing as a venting tool. I tend to hold things inside far too often, good things and bad. From now on expect lots of rants and geek-outs of all types: friends, family, tv, movies, books, music...whatever strikes me in the moment.

I made a new header using this fantastic base. The photo was found on deviant art, so all credit goes to ShotgunxSerenade. Take a look at her work, and I am sure you will enjoy it.

So, this is nothing special; just something to take up space and break the ice that is LiveJournal.


Hello, goodbye; I'll be back with random happenings and possible graphics soon. :)
