Ah, I was going to stop blogging about dating, but then I remembered the privacy features, so I can treat those who are interested in the story of my second date with P, without fear that P might stumble on it.
So, interestingly I almost never got to go out with P again. Last weekend I sent him and email and expected to hear back, and never did. So, I was a bit confused. I thought about calling him, but then I figured if he was actually trying to avoid me calling would be annoying. So I waited around all week. Finally on Friday I decided it would be most appropriate to at least email and see if he wanted dinner. He did. As it turns out my first email spooled somewhere and he didn't get it. So, I'm glad I sent the second email.
I got terribly nervous ahead of time regarding dress, as was obvious in my last blog entry. I actally took an extra outfit in the car, and changed into it, once I saw the resturaunt. It didn't help that it was freakishly chilly.
ASo, We went to a lovely Indian resturaunt. I am not a true foodie, but apparently Saffron is one of the best Indian places in our area. We had lamb and chicken curries as well as very good naan. Mango drinks, and a nice riesling. Again, we just talked and talked. From 7 until about 10:30. After this, we decided to go an have dessert at Francesca's, which is a funky and fun place, though they don't have the best cannoli ever. I have to say, the wine, which I rarely drink, was really hitting me. With only one glass in me, I wasn't really acting stupid, but I was feeling just exhausted.
We talked some more, and then went home.
Today I am a bit hung over, and having a hard time expressing how much fun we have.
At any rate,I'm still a bit confused as to if this is "dating" or not. He is the ultimate gentleman, including doing things like making sure he is always on the outside edge of the sidewalk (so you know, if a car jumps the curb he will "catch it") pulling out chairs, putting me in the car and closing the door. But at one point, we were talking about his mother, and he mentioned that he has "girl trouble", and that his mother is upset that he hasn't produced a grandchild yet. This seems like things you talk to a friend about rather than a woman on a second date, but maybe I dunno.
We have a few up coming plans….He invited me to go to an opening of an Egyptian Art exhibit, and I offerred to cheer him and his friend along in the Duathalon he is doing in a few weeks. So, it seems things are rolling along, which to me is stunning. He is a lovely man, with no strange ex-wives in the background, a fairly regular job (Engineer), good health habits, and nice manners. And he seems to like me….but is it dating?? Or does he just think I'm some new pal….? Hmm.
post script: he called tonight….nice.
