Before I went off to explore the WEST coast (thanks hub), I promised to post about my date with Guy #3. I stand (or sit) here ready to fulfill the promise. Hopefully, this will satisfy Kara. Although, Kara’s update on McSleazy and Running Guy were hardly updates. They were more like one-line teasers. However, I will take Kara’s one-line teasers over nothing.
So Guy # 3 and I went out a few weeks ago. Was it really a few weeks ago? Yea, I guess it was…wow time flies. Anyway, Guy # 3 and I met for dinner. I’ll breakdown/rate the dinner part of the date for everyone….
Food ranks high on my list! I like to eat and I like to eat good food. Guy #3 scored points by taking me to a good restaurant and a non-chain restaurant.
We had plenty to talk about throughout the meal. I never felt the awkward silence. But then again, I never have those awkward silences on dates. Maybe I talk too much?
He’s getting points taken off because he asked me to meet him at the restaurant. If this hadn’t been a date I wouldn’t have minded. I’m an independent gal. I’m fully capable to get myself to and from places. I’m a supporter of the, ‘I am women hear me roar’ mentality; but on a date it’s just nice to be picked up!
He redeemed himself by giving me a gift. Everyone loves gifts, and unexpected gifts are the best! Other than making me meet him at our restaurant he was very polite.
After dinner went to the movies. I’m not usually a fan of going to the movies on a first date. But oddly enough, I was ok with going to see a movie. I believe it had something to do with all the exercise I had done earlier in the day. When it was time for our movie to start I was ready to just sit back and not think.
There’s not much to report about the movie portion of the date. Guy #3 asked if there were any movies I wanted to see. I said no, which was a lie. I’ve been dying to see Enchanted with McDreamy. It looks SO cute, but I didn’t dare suggest that movie. I would NEVER make a guy go see a girlie movie. Instead, we went to see I Am Legend. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie. It was better than I expected, but I had very LOW standards for the movie. I think Guy #3 was disappointed in the movie, but he thought it was going to be a great movie. I went into the theater thinking the movie was going to blow chucks, so I came out liking it better than him.
It was a good date. The next day there was talk of a second date. A few plans have been thrown out but none have made it to my calendar. I’ll keep you posted.
Update on Guy #1: he’s still trying to coordinate his schedule.
