I did something very out of character yesterday evening.
I was social.
I went on a date.
He decided that we were going to start out with dinner and let the evening progress from there.
We went to a local Mexican restaurant. His choice, but oddly enough I would have suggested the same place if I had to have picked our dining location.
I was concerned that he would find me boring. Why? I’m not really sure.
I am pretty sure the worst thing someone could ever do to another person is bore them.
I had this nagging thought in the back of my mind that he would think I was unintelligent.
Luckily, our date indicated quite the opposite. We discovered we have a lot in common. After dinner we went to a coffee shop so we could talk longer, the entire time we talked I was doing that thing where I mentally multitask. I was fully engaged in the conversation but in my mind I had about 3 other major focuses.
1. I really wish I could read minds. That would be fabulous right about now.
2. I am starving even though I just ate.
3. I hope this guy doesn’t hate me, think I’m stupid, or find me awkward.
If I possessed the ability of what I listed by number 1, point 3 would not be an issue.
We plan to go out again soon. Another odd thing for me, being social possibly twice in one week? Unheard of.
Maybe I can socialize with people and be sort of normal, too.
P.S. – I will definitely blog about the second date and other future social moments.
