TOTAL GENTLEMAN ALERT.
August 30th marked it: there really ARE nice guys in this world. And going out on a date with Lose-e-anna, proved it.
The date was pretty awesome if I do say so myself.
I met him after work, at Brickhouse Tavern and Tap on Hwy 290, for dinner. He told me on the phone, before I got there, that if I passed the “cool” test, he’d take me to another place he had in mind.
I, of course, passed it with flying colors.
But dinner. Dinner was good.
When I came in, he stood up and greeted me with a hug. I thought to myself…”I could totally get used to this.”
Lose-e-anna was a very handsome guy. Although his profile said he was only 6′, he was a smidge taller, and that’s a characteristic that never gets old. His striking features: high cheekbones, big lips to sink your teeth into and nerdy glasses made my heart flutter.
We stayed at the restaurant until 7:30 p.m. and then packed up for the next place: Go-Karts!!!
Yes, because I was sooo cool…he took me to an indoor, electric go-kart place just a few minutes from the restaurant. He must have liked “something” about me because he spent a whopping $150 for both us of to race three times. Whoa!
At the restaurant, he gave me hints as to what we’d be doing next and of course, I guessed what it was. I’m a smarty pants and I know it.
When I guessed the activity (go-karts), I told him I was going to beat him badly and hoped he wouldn’t cry. I could have cried instead. He kicked my ass. All over the track.
While we waited for our last race, he asked me out again, wanting to know if I’d be his partner and learn how to salsa dance with him. Since I’ve always wanted to learn, I said, “sure.”
That’ll probably be another blog.
After killing it, and me, on the track, he asked if I’d like to get dessert. What a stupid thing to ask a girl. What woman doesn’t like dessert? He took me to McDonalds and we had sundaes. Cute, I know.
He kept saying that he didn’t want the date to end just yet, and mentioned that he needed to swing by an AT&T or a Best Buy to look at phones. I obliged since I was having such a good time, and like him, didn’t really want the date to end. I really enjoyed his company. Plus, I really needed to cuss out another AT&T guy about my new phone. It was acting super strange.
After Mickey D’s…we traveled to Best Buy only to realize that they were closed. I joked that we should go into Target to play with the toys. Thinking he would think it was a stupid idea, he said, “sweet, let’s go.” And so, we did.
An hour and a half later, he was driving me back to my car. He told me that he had a great time and that he wanted to hang out again (Saturday) and try the salsa dancing.
Did I mention that during my date, he not only opened (all of) my doors for me, but he pulled out my seat wherever we went too?
To end the date, he walked me back to my car and gave me a hug. He told me that he would call me on my drive back to my house, making sure that I wouldn’t fall asleep. After all…it was 11 p.m.
So, in the end, I had a great, 5-hour date, with a sweet guy who talked my ears off, all 30 minutes of my drive home. Did I also mention, he calls me everyday, in the morning, at the same time? Yeah.
I’ll blog about our next date.
