Scout Posted October 30, 2004 Share Posted October 30, 2004 Hi all...I had a very positive dating experience last night, and had to share it with my fellow eNotaloners! I had a blind date with a guy around my age...I have to say, my first impression was that he was kind of goofy looking and isn't my usual "type". Plus, he almost struck me as being gay. I don't mean that in a derogatory way, but he made a lot of gestures, etc. that seemed feminine. (I know there are lots of straight-acting gay people, I honestly have no idea how to express what I mean in a way that gets the point accross without stereotyping). Anyway, I was prepared to write this off as a "not my type" scenario, but guess what: within twenty minutes, this guy had totally charmed me. I started to think, actually he's kind of cute! He was such a great conversationalist, fun and funny, and most importantly, SMART. I learned a lot about him...he's got tons of interests and is very skilled in so many areas...landscaping, martial arts, art, mechanics...plus, he actually served in combat during the Panama invasion in the late nineties. Within an hour, I was thinking, "this guy is pretty sexy!" We ended up going to a Halloween corn maze, laughed endlessly through the whole date, and at the end of the date, I was so enamoured, I asked him if he would be my date to a Halloween party. Imagine my surprise when he said "Maybe", and let me think about it for a while! I have to say I was caught off guard...here at the beginning of the date, I was thinking no way is this guy my type. By the end of the date, I'm having an anxiety attack wondering if he would go out with me again! Then he winked, and said "of course!" So, we're going to a Halloween party tonight, and the best part is he loved my idea of going as an eighties chick, so he's going to dress up as the Wedding Singer! He just called me from the costume shop all excited because he found some cool bracelets and lace gloves for me to wear. THAT IS SO SWEET. Moral of the story: my first impression of this guy was less than stellar. Today, I have butterflies in my stomach and a spring to my step! So...give people a chance, folks. They could profoundly surprise you. Quote Link to comment
