I wanted to tell you all that I really appreciated all the good thoughts you sent my way earlier this week - without even knowing what it was for. You guys are the best people.
Your good thoughts worked!
You see, I met this guy through a social group I've joined, and we had really clicked the couple of times we'd been to the same events. We had a good time when we went out just the two of us earlier this week, but I was SOOOOPER nervous. All the signs looked good when we were together, but honestly, I have a habit of messing stuff like this up.
What I really wanted, more than anything, was to not have messed this up. A second date was my goal. And I didn't want to be the one doing the pursuing. But I have control issues, and patience issues. It was really hard to not do what I wanted to do. And I'm glad I didn't, because I got an email from him, and instead of emailing back (which would mean I'd have more waiting) I called him to respond. Now we're going to Kings Dominion on Saturday (Blogger Renee says good things about theme park dates) to enjoy the day and hopefully each other.
The goal now is a third date. So more good thoughts and prayers would help. :) I know when you look at the world sometimes, wishing for something like this seems like a minor thing. And it is a minor thing in the grand scheme, but to me, it's a bigger deal. Because there's potential there - and that doesn't come along every day.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
