So to start off this interesting adventure I went on a date! Yup, 3 (possibly 4) dates in one week! Probably a record for me but I'm not sure. All I know is that I am going on more dates in one week than I have so far for the past 3 months or so. Pretty excited and not in the I'm-just-excited-to-go-on-a-date-in-general kind of way, but in more of a I-could-see-any-of-these-dates-having-great-potential way.
So anyway, back to my date that I went on tonight. We will call my date...Seuss Contemporary (something to do with the date). We had a great time together and honestly my cheeks kind of hurt from smiling and laughing all night. In the future, after all of my dates this week, I will be comparing all of the gentlemen I went on dates with so I'm making a list of the great things about each guy.
- returned missionary
- great listener AND contributes to the conversation
- likes ice cream and frozen yogurt (yes I find that important ;) )
- through much hardship he still chose to be strong and active in the church
- furthering his education
- and something I learned on this date - - On my way home I realized that I was my complete self with "Seuss Contemporary" and I wasn't afraid to bring out what I find are the best parts of me AND he seemed to like me even more for it. That is how I want to feel all of the time; like I can easily bring out the best in myself and be appreciated by it, respected, and admired. This isn't the first time I've experienced this, but it just hit me today.
Most likely my next date will be a blind date on Thursday.
To be continued....
