Things might be OK with New Guy after all – here’s hoping.
It was a small, simple gesture – just a little gift he gave to me. Nothing expensive – not at all – but it was very sweet and thoughtful, and it was something he knew I’d like. I’m still touched.
It had been nearly a week since I’d seen him last, and in the back of my mind, I went into our date feeling that things were somehow different. By the time we said goodnight, however, it seemed that we were back in that happy place.
A bit of forced slowness this month – we won’t have much of a chance to see each other over the next few weeks, as we’re both busy with work, and we both have a few business trips approaching. I’m one of the most impatient people I know, but even I can acknowledge that taking it slowly can only be a good thing.
Then there’s Super Cutie. We had that second date – I went into it expecting (and truthfully, somewhat hoping) that there would be no connection. But we had a lovely time, and I have a feeling we’ll see each other again. Admittedly, I don’t feel that same immediate *zing* that I felt from the start with New Guy – but really, how much importance should one give the zing?
Incidentally – these two guys have the same name. Different variations on the same name (ala, “Phil” and “Philip”) – but yes, same name. This can be a good thing – but the possibility for a misstep is there. Let’s just say that I’m VERY careful about eyeing the guy’s name before I send out that e-mail or text message.
