Someone special

I've never dated someone who gives me such crazy feelings yet also blows me away with what a truly good person he is. This guy has the charm and the substance - I had such a great time on date three with Dreamy.

When Dreamy picked me up from my apartment, I still had no idea what he had planned for the night (although I knew food would be involved). He started driving and said he was taking me to a particular restaurant in my neighborhood - one that I'd never tried but had always hoped a guy would take me to one day. I was nervous for this night because I can get pretty quiet after the first couple dates with a new guy, but Dreamy always has lots of interesting things to say. He has so many things he's passionate about, and he speaks a lot about integrity - in his life and at work. He's very curious as well, and he asks me detailed questions about my interests (and he remembers those details later). Those types of qualities are what I've really been looking for in a guy - a guy who has convictions, has a direction for himself, and isn't just a little boy in a man's body. He speaks about family members and coworkers he looks up to, and it's interesting to see that he thinks of some of them as role models when he is already such a great person himself.

As per our new usual, he ordered our dessert at the end of the meal. We're pretty serious about our dessert ESP now, because we didn't even discuss the options - he just picked my number one choice, and he knew that it was the one I wanted. The waitress acted a little surprised when he decided so fast without my input, but I assured her that he knew the exact one that was on my mind.

He drove me right home after the meal, and I was feeling unsure about what to do next. I didn't want to be rude by not inviting him inside, but I also didn't want to invite any expectations of him getting some. We lingered in his car, talking for a while, and he could tell I was conflicted about what to do. He assured me he would be a gentleman, and so I finally let him follow me inside my place for a drink.

Without having to say much, I made the boundaries relatively clear of what would not be happening inside. I expect for guys to bail pretty quickly if they have work the next morning and it's clear they aren't going to get any action, but we finished our bourbon and then had the most incredible time. I kept waiting for him to say he was tired and go home, but soon I figured out that he didn't want to do that at all. He stayed with me until well past two in the morning, and we just talked and kissed... He ended up telling me some very personal things about his life and the way he thinks, and I could see what he's all about - and it's far greater than I ever could have thought I could find in a guy. I am very, very impressed with this one. He also kept getting this huge, adorable smile when I would share silly little things about myself. It seems like this one is the real deal, and I hope he is. He could make me really, really happy.


  1. Dreamy sounds very promising! It's huge when they can step outside of themselves and show real interest in someone else. I'm glad things are going well!

    1. Thank you! Yes, selflessness is huge, and not too common with guys these days. I'm excited. :-)

  2. Aww, dreamy sounds amazing! I'm so happy for you! Selflessness is definitely not common, sounds promising :-)

  3. He sounds awesome! It speaks volumes how men handle the first time at his/your place. I've had guys pout, accuse me of being a tease, and never contact me again. Always better to leave him wanting more!

  4. Wow, that's pretty crazy, Sabrina! It sounds like it was a great test to see what kind of guy they are. Dreamy gets some major points for not doing any of those things ;)
