Today at the coffee shop I am within earshot of a first date. I am amused. First dates are tricky business.
This particular first date is…………..hard to keep up with!!
“How tall are you?”
“6’3″, but I am the shortest of the guys in my family.”
“Right, well that’s a good height anything taller than 6’4″ is just too tall.”
“Well you are pretty tall yourself.”
“I am and I am wearing flats,” as she brings her foot from under the table up to the seat of her chair to show off her flat heel.
He nods in approval. I wish I could see the expression on his face.
She’s a pretty girl, he is good looking, or at least from the backside he’s a desirable man, in my opinion LOL!
She can hardly contain herself and good luck? for landing a date with such a man. The conversation is going a mile a minute. Hands in full motion to help with the verbal discussion.
Aren’t we woman pretty darn awesome when we are nervous?! 🙂
She points out what she likes about him after meeting him in the last 10 minutes, “you are easy to get along with but …. I won’t say the word,” laughing nervously. “Narcissitic,”
He reprimands her, “You said you wouldn’t use that word…”
Cutting in, she continues, “well self-absorbed. Not luxury, it’s self-absorbed. You are self-absorbed!!!”
The conversation is taking a manic turn and turns into a hardcore discussion on astrology signs.
She aggressively describes her sign, “We are passionate about everything, we are extremely loyal but if you cross us, we’ll never forget it and never be friends again. We’ll be nice to your face but that’s it.”
He nods and grunts
“We aren’t as jealous as our sign says. But we totally don’t forget. We don’t hold a grudge, but we never forget.”
“So ya, what else, we are very business minded. Strong and pensive. Not lying just not openly expressive.”
They spend time reading more about her astrology sign till her manic state starts to tumble when she cuts him off and declares, “enough of reading this, I think we should skip the rest.”
Laughing and teasing he asks, “Why now, we just started?!”
“Ya this is just getting awkward.”
He gives in and she changes the topic.
“It’s not often that I connect to people in Toronto.”
“Curious, your choice or what?”
“Well its probably because I’ve lived in so many different places. I really think differently. I have a super open mind”
He’s visibly uncomfortable, shifts in his seat and mumbles something in his deep voice.
“I am sorry, I am not trying to put YOU into that Toronto box, it’s just an observation I’ve made.”
Intense….I am so distracted and fear I am going to miss my commitment to finish my book if I continue to sit here much longer! 🙂
