You know that feeling when you first start dating someone and you can barely remember what they look like because you've only seen them once or a couple of times? That feeling where you are anxious because you cannot wait to see their face again? To me, it's a build up of odd emotions - its a kind of like but you're not sure what it is. OK - I have that feeling, whatever you call it.
Cowboy* (I think thats going to be his blog name) and I met for a quick drink before he had to go to work. His shifts are at night and he noted that he wanted to see me.
*he listens to country music, used to rope cattle, drives an F-150 truck: it just screams Cowboy to me and that ain't bad
This time we were more relaxed and more open and more funny.
In all the dates that I've had and the boyfriends - never once have I brought someone to tears by my jokes until last night.
I can't remember what I said because there were lots of jokes piled onto each other. At one point he was tearing. Am I that funny? He seemed to think so.
Our conversation was never without laughter. It wasn't due to the margaritas. We were just fun. I liked that.
Still no kiss. Is this odd now? We did have to do our goodbye on a busy sidewalk. He asked where I was parked, to walk me back to my car, but I walked over and was planning some late afternoon shopping so I was walking some more in the other direction of him. Our goodbye had to be on the crowded sidewalk, so it was quick hug and he kissed my neck. I think it was more of a nuzzle than a kiss. I was like 'ooh' over it and 'try that once again, a little higher, dear' about it.
Before I thought it was cute. Now he is sporting a goatee - which personally I think is HOT especially since he has the shaved head to match. Holla. I can't think of what celebrity he looks like so you'll just have to do with that description for now, until I figure it out. (ooh I just thought of something - shaved head, goatee, cowboy hat - how hot would that be? do you think it'd be too much if I asked him if he could wear a cowboy hat next time I see him?)
We made plans to meet up again next Monday. 1. I'm calling in sick to work that day. Not because of him but because its one of my good friend's last day in Dallas, so I may just be too much of a mess to even see him. 2. He is dying to try what I think are the best burgers in Dallas. 3. He wants my opinion on a shopping trip to the mall - Texas Cinderella - you need to throw some shopping with boys pointers my way :)
We will see...
