Tinder Date

I went on a date!

I haven't been on a date in over three years (since I was in college!) and I FINALLY mustered up the courage to go on a coffee date this past Friday.

If you read my last post, you might be wondering if that was the guy I met up with, but unfortunately, it wasn't. In fact, that guy hasn't come in to my work in almost a month. Quite frankly, I got tired of waiting for him to make an appearance...so I downloaded the infamous Tinder app. I'm not going to lie, I may have downloaded it in the hopes that I would find him on there. I haven't, but that's fine.

Amongst the matches, I began chatting with a guy who I immediately kicked it off with. After about two days of messaging/texting, he asked me if I wanted to meet up, so I agreed. I knew it was time to start getting comfortable going on dates. I was not nervous at all though. You would think I would be, since I haven't been on one in years, but I was really calm and excited to meet this guy and explore his mind.

We decided to meet at a Starbucks that's located right in-between where we live. I got there about ten minutes early, so I sat in my car for a few minutes. I only told two of my close friends and my coworkers about the date and sent Angel a safe word and told her if I text her that, to call me immediately, so I can peace out, in case the date starts getting weird. And than Michelle sends me this text that had me cracking up.

I walked into the coffee shop and there was a person ordering in front of me, so I had a moment to scan the room to see if he was already there. He wasn't. Not even 30 seconds later, the door opens from behind me and in walks the guy, with a huge smile on his face. He's my height (5' 10"), tan, dark hair and green eyes. We ordered our tea and coffee and found a table along the wall to talk at. That Starbucks was literally 60 degrees, so it didn't take long before both of us were shivering and decided to run outside in the rain and talk on the patio, and defrost under the umbrellas.

He's also 25, graduated with a programming degree and he's very open-minded. We talked about spirituality, veganism (he's going vegetarian with the help of his vegan brother), music festivals, psychedelics, documentaries, video games, yoga, meditation, his upcoming trip to Europe, lucid dreaming, astral projection, what we want to achieve in the future, etc. 

Two and a half hours went by and it was time for him to leave and get ready for work, so we hugged in the parking lot and said our goodbyes. We've been texting on and off and plan on meeting up to do yoga sometime soon.

And than...

I accepted another date invitation from a different guy later this week...cause, why not? Haha This guy is so handsome, it's slightly intimidating. He's 6'3", works out six days a week and has the most gorgeous blue eyes. Physically, he's stunning...but I'm interested to see what type of personality he has. We're meeting up one evening after he gets off work, to walk along the beach, so that'll be fun.

Until than, much love guys!



    date as many guys as you can; some will be one and done, others will be two or more dates. but you get to see what you want/don't want in a relationship.

    I wish you the best; granny cougar sends you hugs and smooches!

    1. I couldn't agree more! I have an idea of the type of guy I want to be in a relationship with, so I gotta go on as many dates until I can find him. haha

      Thanks for the wise words and love GC
