Well me and Bank girl went out on our first date this weekend. Before we went out she called me, and chatted for a little while. before I had to get ready. We went and seen Catch and Release. I am not sure if I recommend it. It was kinda slow, and it was kinda sad. But she liked it, and it had Kevin Smith in it. (which she thought he was hilarious, I told her that most of "his" movies are really blue, something tells me she is not ready for Clerks!)
Afterwards I asked her if she wanted to come back to my place. She said she would love to. So we came back to my place, i showed her my Xbox, and let her send a message to Masta Chi3f, since she seemed real interested in that. And then she played some Paper Boy.
We laughed and talked and she giggled alot. She has a very infectious laughter. I think she could laugh and make me feel better by association. She is truly unique. And Special.
I pulled out old year boks so she could see what i looked like. It was kind of funny that she is so much younger than me. It makes me feel kinda old. But she does nt seem to mind.
Her mom already seems to like me. The candy helped a lot for that. She said her mom calls me Roberto. Its kind of nice that she already told her mom about me. My ex wife did not tell her mom about me until we had been dating for a year and half. Which can make someone feel that you are ashamed of them. But she seems to think I am awesome. And that makes me fell good about who I am.
The weather was even icy here Saturday night. I walked her to her car, and made sure to be alert if she almost fell to grab her. We embraced, and she went home. She called me to let me know she was okay when she got home, and we talked about another half an hour.
I really like this girl. And it seemed everything was really natural. I did not feel nervous before the date, I felt like she really likes me for who I am. And she is so pretty.
To me she is Gorgeous. And she takes my breath away. I hope this feeling goes on for a long time.
I have a lot to be thankful for this Valentine's day. I have been going through the motions, and preparing mysefl to waking up from this beautiful dream. Melanie is wonderful, more than I could have ever asked for.
She spent 2 hours with me at work. She brought me a Valentine present. A pug clock with a wagging tail. And a box of reese's cup minatures valentine heart. Yum, I love me some Reese's cups. I just hope that Reese does not come back and try to take them back... (sorry old Mitch Hedberg joke)
Our First date is shaping up for Saturday. We are shooting to go see Catch and Release. And I am thinking about going for ice cream, unless it is just way to cold for ice cream.
We kind of have plenty of "dates" planned. She talked about a few movies she would like to see. So i figure there may be a few hanging out dates. Which is fine me.
I just have a good feeling about this girl. Silly I know, and most of you think I say this about every gir. But I can tell you that Melanie makes me excited. She is special.
Well good night I am getting ready to lay down and snooze...
So i have been thinking a little bit about what to do with this blog. You see, things seem to be going well, and I do not want to jump the shark. But if things continue to go this well, I thing this blog has to die.
I am not saying I am going to quit blogging. But since I found the girl that stops my heart, and who is intersted in me, can I really continue using the blog address, Thedivorceididnotwant.blogspot.com
Just a thought. I may leave this blog up, and link to a new one, or I may delete this blog all together, and have you guys follow me down the yellow brick road. But all that in due time I guess...
I have not asked her out yet, but we are taking things very slow. She is a shy person. And I love talking to her. I make her laugh. I like making her laugh. laughter is a valuable part of any relationship. So is respect, and I have a lot of respect for her. There are times that i talk to her, and I see the Good in myself. We have a lot in common.
Last night we were chatting away. And my internet connection dropped out. All my online programs stopped functioning, I could not connect back to messenger. I kept unpluging my modem and everything. Nothing would bring it back up. The only thing I could use my internet for was to send an email.
I had to shut everything down and turn it back on. That fixed the problem. But in that time she had sent me an email and an IM asking if I was okay. She thought my apartment blew up or something, the way I went away. I like that kind of concern.
She also had to gve me crap about the Colts winning the Superbowl. I made such a big deal about how Payton Manning was going to choke, I was wrong and she had to rub it in.
Anyway not much to say as of yet. I just wanted to ask you guys what i should do about the blog, what would you do?
Yes I now have her cell phone number. I gave her mine, in case she had some car trouble in the morning due to the snow. After she went to bed she text messaged me to tell me that it was snowing. So I know have her phone number, and I even think she was hinting about me coming over in the near future, because she told me she wanted to show the pics of her while she worked at Disney World.
You know that saying, My cup runneth over. That popped into my head when I started chatting with her the other night. Because when i realized it was really her. I could see this chalice in my minds eye. I could see this liquid being poured in it. And as the liquid spilled over and poured across this table, tears began to leak out of my eyes. Because at that moment, I was filled with so much happiness that it could not be contained inside me.
This all started with me last week. I thought I wrote about this last week, but looking back on it, I see I did not. I know I told you about the Xbox discussion. Well the next week, I was getting ready for work. I knew I would see her on Tuesday.
A voice calmly spoke to me. Robert, wear your good button up Blue shirt that you got for Christmas, last year. I was like okay voice in my head, no problem. And then also wear your blue jeans. Yeah okay, whatever, thats a little weird.
There you look all good now. I walk into the bank. I had pep in my step. Lately I have just been in a better mood.Of course she was waiting for me at the counter, okay not for me, but you know for work.
She looked at me and said, "You look nice today, I like that shirt." Then I heard that little voice in my head actually laugh. Told you so. We talked a little bit, abut Books, and how she spent 4 months working at Disney world. It was nice, and no big line so i lingered to talk to her.
Good day. Then Saturday, it was warmer here. 47 degrees. The voice again made a suggestion. Do not wear your coat into the bank. Wear that shirt that your friends like, and just go in there like that.
Again she was waiting the counter. (Now for those of you playing at home. In the last 3 months, she had not been doing anything on the counter. She had been stuck in a drive thru)
"So you are not even wearing your jacket today are you? I did not eithier, it feels almost like Spring out there."
Another giggle from that voice in my head. Now to add a little more giggle to the story. The night before I went to get Chinese food. I had such a craving for it. When I looked at the fortune that night. And I will let you read this one to yourself.
I will no longer doubt the power of fortune cookies. The next day, she looks me up. Sends me a message.
She is a very shy person. I think she was too nervous to call me. We spoke about a lot of things. I flirted with her. I told some of my jokes, and I think I only mentioned my ex wife once, because it pertained to Tiki. Anytime I thought about writing something out of context, I would hear, erase that.
She is just an honest Sweetheart. When I got up the next morning I sent her a message telling her that I had a good time talking to her, and that I hoped she had a good day.
She sent me one back later, while I was at work. That she liked talking to me too, and she hoped I had fun visiting with my mom, and she would see me on Tuesday at the bank.
I did not ask for her phone number yet, I did not ask her out yet. I asked her some of the things she liked to do. (She gets points for answering bowling and mini golf) and I asked her about a few places, (like old chicagos pizza, and coldstone creamery) (She loves pizza and Ice cream) Both of which she answered, No but I would like to go sometime. I kind of wondering if she was hinting at me to ask her out. I am afraid to be too forward and scare her off. I have to take this nie and slow.
I mean would Ricky Bobby drive 199 laps, and then screw it up because he wanted to slow it down. Hell no, because if you are not first your last. He would win that Nextel Cup.
I joked arond with her the other night. I changed my Instant messenger pic, to a little dog with Huge glasses on, and she thought that was cute. I said I wanted to change it from my ugly mug :)
She told me I did not have an ugly mug. How sweet of her.
We started putting pics up of ourselves. Every pic she put up was gorgeous, I even told her I thought she had the prettiest smile, and that she was gorgeous. I was not blowing smoke. Her pics were really good. Maybe I am just biased. I have none to share of her yet.
But she gave me her email address. So I can email her when she is not online. I thought about seeing how things go, and if she seems still interested to see if she wants to go see Catch and Release. Not sure yet, do not want to tip my hand too early. You spill your cup that way.
I will let you know how it goes later. Wish me luck. Pray for me because i really think God has a hand in this one. And I have Faith it is going to turn out the way I want it to.
