I had coffee tonight with a really nice guy. I of course thought about canceling 1,001 times before I went but decided hey, it’s coffee. I am glad I went. It gave me a nice little confidence boost about myself.
He was handsome, incredibly interesting, charming, and he paid for coffee (I don’t know why that impressed me so much but it did!). When I got home he had emailed me to say, “thanks again.”
I would have dinner with him if he asked me, but my guess is that is not going to happen anytime soon.
He has been in the Air Force for 18 years and is leaving on Saturday to be deployed to Iraq for 6 months :-
Which is fine. I am not ready to *really* date and don’t want to be in a relationship just yet.
I knew about the deployment to Iraq before we went out and I think that made it feel less threatening to me for my first date after getting divorced.
It was still nice to have coffee with someone who didn’t run shrieking, and who had a great smile, and eyes, and well the rest of him was quite nice too 😉
Like I said, a nice little boost.
