I tossed back and forth whether or not to even blog this… or to just blog about it, but save it for later, as you know… since I’m on a blog break and all. Ha! And honestly, feared that if I did blog then I would seem like I wasn’t a woman of my word.
There were multiple reasons why I felt I needed to take a blog break.
Honestly the reason why I felt the need to step back was not so much because blogging about my life was the issue and the time spent on my personal blog, but it’s being so invested (that can be a good thing, but also bad) in an unhealthy way in the lives of others (whom most I’ve never met by-the-way, ha…but I love every single one of you and I don’t mean that in a bad way at all), and honestly it’s the time I spent commenting and catching up on other people’s blogs and feeling bad if I don’t that was really getting to me.
I felt like I was living to blog, and not just simply living…. Hope that makes sense. I felt like I was getting to the point where I was doing it for all the wrong reasons. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, it’s not about the followers, how many people frequent your blog, or how many comments you get. There should be no fear that if you don’t blog for a few days you’ll lose followers, and if you do, who the heck cares.
I just need to get back to why I started blogging in the first place, for me and me alone.
With that said. I need to get down my thoughts and memories from last night:
First, I actually ended up meeting him at the restaurant instead of him picking me up, as we had originally planned.
Dinner was delicious, great conversation, no awkward silence. He is very cute in his own way and his personality is what really makes him. Very meek and gentle. He paid of course and did the whole opening of the doors all night. Complete gentleman. After dinner we decided we would go to square and go to Starbucks and get something. So with our drinks in hand we walked around and went to the docks near the water and talked and then walked around some more. During this time he held my hands a couple of times. Which I really didn’t expect him to do but it was nice.
Then there was a Barnes & Nobles nearby and things were winding down on the square and we had a little more time to kill, so we walked around some more in there looking and then we headed back to the car. I could sense just from who he is and his personality that he wasn’t going to make any kind of move on the first date which is completely fine, but my Mom said, if he doesn’t kiss you, which he probably won’t, and you feel comfortable as you’re leaving each other give him a hug and give him a kiss on the cheek. So I did just that. YAY me!!!!!!! :) Ha!
The whole evening was just relaxed, and I really contemplated having a glass of wine or beer before I met him to calm the nerves, haha!! But I didn’t, LOL!
And he invited me to go to church with him on Sunday!!! So I think I will.
I’m just going into this with no expectations or pressure and just seeing where it goes. He’s definitely worth getting to know.
Ohhhhh, and the best part. Before dinner he took my hand and we prayed before eating!!! Very cool!
Sooooo, we’ll see!!!
I’d rate the date a 9, he has to earn his way to a 10, hahahaha!!
I can’t promise you I’ll blog tomorrow or the next day, but this is what I needed to blog today.
I have 226 items in my google reader, and you know what, I just can’t be freaked out about it!
