Thursday happened to be the big "day" (it is almost seem i am talking marriage!)..... I didn't say anything because i was afraid it was going to be again a disappointed moment! i learnt my lesson and it seems you need to " shut up' sometimes to make it happened!
Anyways, he called me up and we set up the time after work! No needs to say how frantic i was the whole day, i couldn't concentrate, my hair so straight (blow dry "oblige" ) became so curly that i looked like a " mouton", i mean it was phenomenal!
Our date was set up at 7;00pm he picked up a cafe ( which sounded weird to me because in general, you choose a bar to make the person drinks a little in order to ease up the situation of the blind date, he wasn't of this kind!). he chose a spot close to my office which i think was kind of him. ( i know i am a bit too much!).
Iam always late, so for once i have decided to leave far in advance so at 6;15am,i was out! A BIG PREMIERE! i walked slowly, do my usual phone calls when i go on a blind date. Call cousin and my best friend telling them where i was going! Ok a bit paranoid but HEY YOU NEVER KNOW!
While i am started to walk, it started to RAIN! wonderful, i was already looking like a sheep and now i was a GIANT MOUTON! so i got to stop at the Gap store and bought a hat! i needed to cover the disaster!
In the meantime, he called me up and he told me he was running late, and am thinking here we go again! i called my cousin who told to go anyways and to wait... which i did...
I got there at 6;45pm ( i have never been so early in my whole life! ) and now i am finding myself sitting on a bench in front of a cafe staring at the rain! How romantic, especially when you are alone! Un BONHEUR!
I tried to call him and guess what?!?! VOICE MAIL!! and i am like ok, keep cool! My cousin called me back and i told him, he convinced me to stay! yeah... easy to say when you are curly, soaked and everybody is looking at you like " poor girl" sitting on the bench, not that i cared but i have to admit i was feeling down for myself!
7;00pm, still no one... it is getting on my nerves, big time! i try again and voice mail!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! but i waited...
7;15pm; someone showed up in front of me! ( i was in my world!) and say "Sally" and i am like "oui" i looked him up and couldn't speak maybe because i was pissed or because i was numb! so he goes lets go inside and the first thing he said when we got in was' sorry for being such an A..." and then i started to laugh! he marked a point!
We stay there for 3 hours straight!!!!! until now i can't still believe it! I thought he was cute ( exactly like the pix! surprisingly!) we spoke about everything and we realize we were opposite but so opposite! he is so formal as i am crazy, he is so into fat ( sugar free) but i am so French that fat doesn't count!!
From such a different background but so many topics to talk about! it was really nice and he is really kind and sweet ( ok hold on a second am not "in love"!! )
And then time came that we had to leave, it was 1030pm not bad for a first date! And my favorite scene happened ( the american scene as i call it):) he asked me if he could see me again! I am like YES!!!!! but i played it cool like " sure, it would be nice" ( girls will understand it!).
Just a time out why " american scene" because in France the guy will try to kiss you and will tell you " i call you tomorrow" which he would do!
back to the end of the date, he gave me a big hug! and said i call you sometimes this week! ( i am thinking we are thurdays then when?!?!) i didn't open my mouth and just nodded! and he left!
Conclusion: i like him he was really nice and enjoyed his conversation! let's see for the second date!
I have to say it, i couldn't resist when going hom sending him a "texto" to thank him for the coffee! he replied immediately and i thought i marked a point:)
As of today, i haven't seen him yet too busy but we are supposed to meet up this week! but he calls and he subscribes to the "texto" Isn't it somthing?
