Okay, okay.....I know I've been holding out on you all.

The date was good. He is as he seemed on the phone, better actually. We were both nervous about meeting. I think because we got along so well on the phone and really liked each other, and we were both afraid it wouldn't be the same in person. Sometimes it turns out that way. I felt like I was in Jr. High! I saw him sitting in his car, waiting for me in the restaurant parking lot, and I was afraid to get out of the car! It got to be kind of funny, we were both so nervous.

I'm always afraid that someone is going to think I'm great on the phone or via e-mail and then once he gets a look at me, turn around and run. What if he doesn't think I'm pretty? Or that I'm too fat? Or there won't be any connection. That's happened before, too. It's so disappointing.

Anyway, that wasn't the case last night. He wasn't disappointed with me and I wasn't disappointed with him. We kept grinning at each other through dinner. And there was definitely a connection.

We had dinner, then sat in the car and talked until it was time for the movie. We saw "3:10 to Yuma", which I highly recommend. It has a lot of shooting but not too much blood. It is an excellent movie and an unexpected ending. The picture is of the two leads - Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.

So after the movie, we spent some more time in the car talking, and a little kissing (wink).

I'm afraid to get my hopes up yet, but I hope this will develop.

I'll keep you posted.

Gosh...you give me hope! I haven't dated in....oops, better not type it on here, it looks worse in black & white! LOL

Glad it was a nice evening for you. :x)

And from what I remember of snogging, it surely does lift the spirits.

A very good movie ... though I'm not sure it could be considered a "date" movie.

Nice first date. If you had to cast your guy in a movie, who would play him?

I was watching "A Good Year" with Russell Crowe the other night and realized with a start that my husband resembles him quite a bit. The features aren't quite so heavy in hubby's face, but there's a definite resemblance.

Ironic, since I've never particularly cared for Russell Crowe. But I might be changing my mind...
