third date

Date #3 was a surprise date.  I was simply told where to meet and to wear comfortable shoes for walking.  When we met at the designated location (a parking lot on a university campus), we then got into T's car and headed onto our destination.  We ended up in a cute, quaint little area called Historic Occoquan.  It's a little riverfront town with lots of little shops and some cute little restaurants.  :-)

We walked around, along the tiny little boardwalk and around the main street and it's shops.  We ate at a little cafe, sitting in a small outdoor courtyard.  We fed the ducks courtesy of a stranger who offered us one of the old bagels he was using to feed the greedy little creatures. ;-)  We then walked across a really cool little footbridge over the river, shown below.  He held my hand, and back where the little tiny falls are, he kissed me.  It was kind of picturesque and adorable and all those good things.



Once we exhausted our Occoquan time, we went to his townhouse and hung out for maybe an hour longer.  We just chatted and got to know more about each other, and it was easy and nice. 

I suspect I will see him again, though we have no definite plans yet.  Now all I have to do?  Avoid talking myself out of a thing with potential!

  2. I very much like the sounds of this boy! Don't talk yourself out of it yet. Give him some time and get to know him. You are intelligent and successful and beautiful - you deserve a good guy!

  3. Sounds like a perfect date! No pressure, just getting to know each other and enjoying each others' company. To me, being able to enjoy a low-key date is the best indicator of whether or not something has potential.

    1. I totally agree! If you can only hang out when you're doing super involved, busying activities you may not be able to connect as easily. This has been a nice, slow start. :)
