So off I went on my date last week, a little nervous, and although I didn't really fancy him I had a lovely evening.
He picked me up in a cab, held doors open and paid for everything.
There were a few hiccups, he mentioned his ex in passing a few times, told me some things about his past I'd rather not know, and kept mentioning how skint he was (sure way to make me feel awkward when the bill arrived) but to be honest because I wasn't that into him I was just enjoying the free dinner and cocktails.
He want's to go out again, and has suggested some nice places so I am tempted to go just because I do like the place he suggested... Would that be leading him on?
Probably. But oh well.
I also reluctantly downloaded Tinder after my friend convinced me, I'm not into casual hook-up's or one night stands so was a bit apprehensive as I have heard a few stories and assume that's all people go on there for... But I would say it's a huge confidence boost.
I have been talking to a few guys that seem 'decent' and have even swapped numbers with one.
After so much upset the last year, I think its time I got back out there, even if it just to be wined and dined.
As my younger, prettier and sometimes wiser sister told me 'At your age, you shouldn't waste time or settle for anyone, unless you can see yourself marrying them'
So I can now say I am officially dating until I find the one.... Because I'm not going to find him sitting at home watching Eastender's now am I?
