Well first date #4 is in the books! I was expecting it to go better. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t amazing. I think I had higher hopes for this first date because I met him in person and felt a connection. It wasn’t a complete cold internet set up date. Nick and I met at a local bar and had a few drinks. We were planning to meet at 730. He texted me at 715ish and said he was going to be a bit early, which I love because I can’t stand when people are late. Once he sat down he texted me where he was sitting which I thought was sweet. I hate walking into a place looking for someone and feeling goofy. The conversation flowed pretty well but its hard to tell. I didn’t feel an immediate spark or connection, like I had the first time i met him. But I’ve felt the spark before with exes and obviously those relationships have ended so maybe I shouldn’t rely on that feeling?!
Speaking of exes, I spoke with mine on Thursday and all the sparks and weird feelings were there. WHY?!?!?! I want them gone!! We put each other through hell and there should be nothing left! We have been apart for about a year. We haven’t spoken in a few months. Speaking to him is BAD! It makes me think all the What Ifs but that isn’t going to get me anywhere!
Anyway back to Nick. At the end of the night we did this awkward hug in the parking lot. I texted him once I got home saying that I had fun and he responded that he did too and that he would like to hang out again sometime. That was 5 days ago. Since then we have texted but he hasn’t asked me out again. Am I supposed to ask him? How does this work? I am so clueless!
