A year ago tomorrow, I wrote my first post on this blog. In that post, I "went public" about my recent decision to join eHarmony.
A year ago yesterday, I was out on a date with the first guy I met through eHarmony. He took me to see Mama Mia, which was a really fun musical. I didn't hear from him the next day, but I did hear from him the day after that, when he told me that he was getting back together with his ex-girlfriend. You can read about that emotional rollercoaster ride here. Thank You, Jesus, for not letting that work out, because...
A year ago today, I was matched with eSuitor. As soon as I saw this picture and read his profile, I knew I wanted to meet him. I was hoping that he would initiate communication with me, but after about five days, my patience ran out, and I had to clickety-click-click on him. (He likes to tell me that I wasn't being forward, I simply "dropped the hanky". Thankfully, he picked it up!) He answered my request for communication right away, and soon we were e-mailing, talking on the phone and out on our first date.
We had our first date at a Thai restaurant in Pasadena. Dinner went so well that we decided to take a walk through Old Town and we stopped in an ice cream parlor for dessert. Before saying goodbye that night, he told me that he wanted to see me again. I said that would be great. And we've continued to see each other ever since. And it's been great! Here is a photo of last night's dinner at the same Thai restaurant. We were both in a haze of in-love-ness.
