I will say, each of my 31 Dates was better than I could have imagined. But that's not always the case with dating, is it? We all have those horrid stories when we walked away wondering if we would ever dare date again. I've had my share too. For example:
We went out a few years ago. A mutual friend had been trying to set us up for a while. When we finally went out, we went to a restaurant not too far from my apartment.
"We're headed to the 'hood?" I asked.
"It's three blocks away," he said.
Um... fast-forward to the end of dinner... and I saw that my purse had been stolen.
I wasn't asked on a second date.
And then... there was Mike.
I had wanted to ask me out for over two years. Two years!!! And when he finally did, he came over to my apartment with dinner. My very food-motivated dog ran out into the hallway and I was so nervous Watson would just jump up and eat all the food Mike had brought. As I chased the hungry pup down the hall, the door to my apartment followed and locked behind me.
My superintendent - gone.
Maintenence guy - gone.
Friend who had a key - out of town.
And then as I was standing there, holding onto my dog in bare feet, I remembered that one of my windows was cracked. As a friend held onto Watson, Mike and I crawled through the alley where they keep all of our trash and then we scaled the wall into my window.
No second date on that one either.
But there have also been those dates where the time just passes and I realize several hours have magically disappeared.
Those are some of my favorites.
So what about you?
What are your most memorable dates?
