Many have been asking me... "What about your first real date with 'K'?" Well, 'K' and I have went out a few times since the first "meet-up" on that Wednesday night when he tried to find me an apple pie for dessert. The first official 'date' was on the Saturday night after that Wednesday and I finally got my apple pie. 'K' cooked me dinner that night and of course had apple pie for dessert. Not only did I have it for dinner, but he gave me a separate apple strudel pie to have at my house for my kids to enjoy later. Wasn't that thoughtful?
We have met-up or went out a couple more times since then and each time he has been quite the gentleman and always brings something to my door for my kids and myself to enjoy at a later time. This past Saturday night it was Hershey bars. We have had many talks and through these conversations, the synopsis so far has been that we are not looking for anything serious at this time. Being busy with work and raising our kids leaves little time for a relationship and he has emphasized the fact that getting married is something he has set in his mind for ten years down the road.
So clearly, we still want to hang out together at times and continue to get to know each other; but friends is where it stands. There is an interest on both sides, but I believe I speak for both of us when I say we agree taking it very slow is what we both want.
For those of you hanging on the edge of your seat, waiting to hear "the rest of the story," I hope the reality of my lovely dating saga doesn't bore you because I think it remains interesting as I continue waiting to see what unfolds next.
I don't mind having guy friends and someday there will be "the best friend and companion" I could ever possibly ask for that will develop - and whether that will be from a current or from a future friend, no one knows at this time. That is part of the mystery of life.... the mystery of my dating life that is.
