Freaking Out Right Now

I have a date. A semi-blind date. We have seen photos of each other and talked on the phone but haven't met in person.

I haven't had a date since July of 2006. I am really nervous.

I don't know why I am freaking out. He has seen photos from before I started losing weight to photos that were taken last Saturday. He knows what I look like and what to expect.

Maybe I am nervous because for the first time, there is a bit of potential. He is funny, good looking and a great conversationalist.

On a very strange note...his ex wife has the same name as I do.. then we found out that we both work in the insurance industry. Then we found out that his ex and I work for the same company.

I don't know her. She works in a different building. I just thought that the coincidences were very strange.

How crazy is that?

Oh, and while I was writing this, I got a call from another gentlemen that I met. I was still at work and told him that I would call him right back.

All of this right when I decided that I wasn't looking to date.

How fun! That's always when they come a-knockin'. Hope you have a great time. :)

My Mom had the same name as my Dad's mom. I know, weird!

I am soo happy for you right now. I am not really an optimist but I gues I do beleive that things just tend to "fall in place" given enough time. Enjoy the date!

That sounds great. It does always seem like it's feast or famine with dating, doesn't it?

That's awesome! I understand being nervous, I am not known as a frequent dater. Go for it and see what happens! Good luck!

Isn't that always the way? You decide to not date and then BLAM! Oooh, I'm very excited for you.

You know, you are in a very sexy frame of mind lately (given your sweet, hot new bangs) so no doubt you are putting out some kind of 'come hither' vibe, one that's just built on new confidence. Apparently guys like that...or something :P
