(click here for info on first date... date #67)
I'm definitely attracted to Foodie Man (FM). He has a brusque honesty about him... and I find him very good-looking. Looks much younger than his years, excellent head of hair.
I let him choose the restaurant -- it wouldn't have been my first (or second... or third) choice... but what can I say, I'm a downtown snob, and this was quite a bit north of 14th Street. I was happy that he even had a suggestion... the last guy I consistently dated, Marathon Man, was quite clueless in that department. FM lived up to his name, and I was impressed with his wine knowledge. To decant or not to decant?
After dinner, to a local bar with lots of good kissing in a dark booth. He asked me back to his place several times (with the caveat that he had to get up early tomorrow for a race)- tempting, but I declined. Must stay strong, and resist sexual temptation... at least for several weeks.
To be honest, I'm not quite sure if I see him as Mr. Loverville... maybe just someone to have fun with? Too soon to tell. And since I'm going out of town and won't be able to see him til the end of March, it's on hold anyway.
Question of the day: when do you think is the soonest time advisable to sleep with someone new? Prevailing wisdom seems to call for at least five dates. I have one conservative friend who says she waits three months! Thoughts?
