I have been incredibly busy this weekend and am just sitting down now to give a date update.
So, all in all, the date went incredibly well. We met at a restaurant bar, chatted, and had drinks before sitting down to dinner. We were essentially the last couple in the restaurant and so we went to a local bar and got drinks. I didn't even realize what time it was until I looked at my watch and it was 12:45am! That's the latest I've been up in an incredibly long time so I decided to call it a night.
A couple of highlights from the date were the following:
-He's definitely a Southern gentleman. He went above and beyond holding open doors. He stood up when I left the table to use the ladies room, and when I came back. He ordered an appetizer for us. He even remembered that I didn't want mushrooms on my salad when the waitress forgot. So I was quite impressed by that.
-He seems extremely dedicated to his career (he's in the military) and to serving his country.
-He asked about P but did not pry.
-He seemed very interested in getting to know me and about my career and my life.
We actually saw eachother again yesterday afternoon. We took a walk along the river and then grabbed a beer and a light dinner at a local brewery. We've been talking about seeing eachother again and maybe cooking something together. So, we'll see how it goes, and, of course, I will keep you all updated!
