Part 1:We Meet in Math Class
Part 2: We Get to Know Each Other
Part 3: The First Date
It has been a while since I've posted about the saga of mine and the boy's relationship, so if you need to catch up the previous entries are linked above. The funny thing is throughout middle school and high school and wrote most everything down in a journal. In college I wrote about all my adventures (guy related and otherwise) on my Live Journal. Except when I started dating the boy I wasn't journaling anywhere. Really I'm writing the history down more for myself so that way 10 years or more down the road I'll have something to refer back to. But hopefully everyone else finds it assume to read as well.
Everyone caught up now? You'd think after the first date I'd be through with my so-called games with the boy. But no, out of the next 5 times he asked me out only 3 of them actually resulted in a date. I will promise you all that it really wasn't intentional.
There was one weekend were I was heading back to Maryland to visit my college friends. There was another weekend where I was going to a birthday party in a sugar cane field. Only in Louisiana right? That night was quite an adventure though. My friend's car was one of three that drove into a ditch. And getting a car out of a ditch in the pitch black in the middle of a sugar cane field is quite an experience.
There was also a Friday where I slept through his phone call. We had talked about possibly doing something, except I had taken a nap Friday afternoon. I woke up to a missed call and could have called him at that point, but by then I wasn't in the mood to really get dressed or do anything. I guess looking back that could have actually been classified as playing hard to get, but I wasn't trying to play any type of game.
What about the actual dates in this time period? He called again the Sunday after I slept through his call and wanted to know if he could maybe bring over dinner. I had a friend over at my apartment at the time, but invited him over anyway. I did make sure both parties were ok with this agreement. The three of us all hung out and enjoyed the Chinese food he brought. It was really nice at this point to be able to introduce him to a friend and get to have someone else's opinion on him. I would count this as our 2nd official date, although if you ask him now, he will say this night didn't officially count towards our date count.
The next date we went on wound up being pretty standard date for the years to come in our relationship overall. We went to dinner at Macaroni Grill and then went to the movies and saw the Robin Williams movie Man of the Year. (Not a bad movie looking back, but I've never had a strong desire to watch it again) After the movie we headed over to a bar where he attempted to teach me how to play darts. I'm pretty awful at darts, but he did let me win one game. Although if you ask him now he'll still claim I won fair and square.
When he dropped me off at my apartment that night he told me he hadn't been feeling well lately but otherwise he would have attempted a kiss. But it didn't happen that night. When did it happen? Well, you're going to have to wait to hear how that happened!
Which means that one month and 3 dates into the relationship (or 2 dates from his point of view) we hadn't had our first kiss yet. What do you think, too long to wait for a first kiss or not long enough? How long would you wait for a first kiss in a new relationship or how long did you wait in your current relationship?
