It was a busy 4 days - 3 dates with two different guys. I told you about the first guy, the second I met a month earlier at a wine tasting event. We chatted most of the time then and he said he wanted to see me again, so I gave him my number. After 3 weeks of rescheduling, we finally got together.
I was at the bar, drinking my beer when he walked in 5 minutes late. He didn't recognize me at first and then sat down with his arms so tightly around his chest. I thought it was going to be a long afternoon...or maybe I'd just finish that beer and leave.
Turns out the bar had an upstairs roof area, so we move up there and order a second drink and an appetizer (new foods for me. smoked elk, pheasant, wild boar blueberry sausage with goat cheese, agave pecans, fruit and a few sourdough baguette pieces). By his second drink he started to loosen up...and because I asked him if he really wanted to be there. Conversation flowed. Pictures were shown. I asked how old he was. By drink three, he was asking me to get together again.
We left and when I got home, I had a nice text thanking me for getting together.
I'll go out again with him, I like him better than the first guy...but his age still concerns me, 50. I didn't date the guy back home because he was 50...but I enjoyed his conversation and life experiences as well.
I hope at some point to meet a guy more in my age range...but until then, going out with these gentlemen has been good experiences for me because I am learning how to be better about small talk, smiling and listening.
