I'm over at a friends after falling in front of my date. Keep reading to find out how!!
We decide that he will pick me up at the metro and we will head to dinner. He calls me when he is on his way and suggests a different restaurant. I am thrilled..he is taking initiative but making a suggestion, and also, it's a place that I love. It's also a BYOW. So y'all that know me know how that makes me feel. We stop at the wine store and pick up a bottle, then head to the resto. It's closed!!!! Luckily, there is a great, albeit not a BYOW, right next door.
We have decent conversation over dinner, but I make the sad mistake of ordering something with spinach in it, so I literally spend the entire night trying to see if I had anything in my teeth. I didn't. We go for a drink at a dive bar next door, and it's going ok. While I don't think he is the man of my dreams, I still feel like I want to know him. He asks me to go to the movies next week, and I enthusiastically agree!
He drives me home, and let's me out in front of my house. I get out of the car, and begin to walk across my front lawn. And proceed to trip, fall and otherwise embarrass myself as he tries to get out of the car to save me. The only thing hurt was my pride. This is the text I got from him later" Hey. hope you had a good time til you nearly killed yourself walking to your door :)"
And that, my friends, means that bad phone date has turned into someone who is for sure worthy of another date.
Here is another gem of a man:
He: I think you're super cute, and you seem like a really great girl. I'd like to get to know you, but I am a vegan. Can you respect that?
Me: I think you're super cute! I don't mind at all that you're a vegan! Do you respect that I eat meat?
There you have it!
