I had a date.....

Well ladies and gents,

I had a date on Saturday to the local ballgame.

I was ok..... until the morning of.

Then I freaked.

 Thought I was gonna puke my toenails up.

 I cried.

I was shaking so bad I was having trouble with my makeup.

Totally freakin out.

It's a wonder I could drive.

I have not been on a date with me in the same vehicle with a guy since I dated my ex.

And we have been split 13 years.

To.

The.

Day.

I've always met guys (friends, buddies) at places.

So I don't consider it a date.

Even a couple of guys that are buddies and I will go with them in the same vehicle but not romantic stuff.

Just friends hangin out.

This one had the chance of being romantic.

HOLY WHACK BATMAN!

WHAT AM I DOIN?????

A friend told me I could cancel and the guy would understand.

I couldn't. I said I would go. I had the tickets.

Deep breath, slowly release.

PRAY!

I realized that my friend wouldn't have introduced us if this guy was not a nice guy.

My kids were laughin at me.                  

Of course, we had a good time. He makes me laugh.

I found out he was nervous too.

(It was his first date since his wife passed away several years ago..)

We are even talkin about a SECOND date!!

Told him I don't think I would freak this time....

Oh. My. What to do, what to do..........

Cheers!

Not sure I would even know what to do on a date.

Gald you had a good time and didnt puke up your toenails.

Well, if I were you I'd relax and enjoy the second date. He must like you if he's agreed to one. Have a great time, and chuck those nerves out of the window.

Hey there!
That is awesome and I hope the second date is as good, or better than the first one.
Just thinking about dating (if I was all of a sudden single again) just gives me the willies!

You are so funny! I'm glad it all worked out! A second date? Woo-hoo! You'll have to tell us all about it!

BTW - I "tagged" you in my post today. Come by and see for yourself.

First dates are so nerve-wracking! I'm glad it went well!

Oh yeah..a lot of us go through this. It's not the same after so long in a relationship is it. But sooner or later we have to suck it up and get on with life...and maybe love. It gets easier...

You go girl! Glad you had a good time.
