Meow... What was that?

So... A little while ago... I had a first date with this guy... Seemingly sweet, well spoken, Tatts and piercings... HOT... He's a barista, at one of my local Starbucks... There is pretty much one on every corner here... Starbucks, not HOT Baristas... We went to a movie (unmemorable)... Literally, I can't remember what it was... Either it was bad, or I'm getting to the age I need to start writing stuff down... We then went to dinner at a local chinese restaurant near his house... BAMBOO LAUAS CHINATOWN... I love this place, the food is fair, but it's the atmosphere that I go for... They're open late... So all kinds of freaks... err I mean people come in... and you know, I love to people watch ... As I'm about to turn into the parking lot, I completely interupt our conversation, and lose my shit... I burst out in an uncontrollable fit of laughter (I almost pissed myself)... What are you laughing at??? ... I said Look...



I think it took him a minute to get it... We parked, both took out our phones and clicked away... Unfortunately, this was the best part of the date... After dinner I took him home, and we made out for a while... I went home, dreamily thought of the possibilities... Over the coming weeks, I would find out, he was yet another crazy... In my long list of dating the crazy, and getting older, I've learned some things about myself:
We are all crazy (myself included), I'm just wanting someone to match mine, not surpass it...
I am a Freak Magnet...
I don't tolerate things like I used to... ie. drama, stupid bullshit, being disrespectful...
I no longer withdraw into myself from rejection... mine or theirs...
I do find something beautiful in everyone, not just the physical anymore, although the physical still gets me rock... err thats another post...
I am more aware... of me... actions, motivations...I monitor my words, words have power... I've actually started correcting myself if I say something I don't believe... Old me and habits die hard... LOL
Those are a few things I know... There is so much more I don't... Sorry to get so deep, this was only supposed to be a light post... Apparently, that needed to come out...
Growing older is a wonderful thing... Relearning who you are, and how you relate to others... It's mad, and brilliant all in the same moment...

As Always Be Kind to Yourselves... I'm Fine Thanks For Asking...

Yes, relearning who we are is a wonderful thing!

Awe babe, I am sorry your date was not what you had hoped for.

But I thought the photo was hilarious. I would certainly be getting a closer look though before I walked into the place - you know just to be sure. LOL

I don't think I want to get to know myself over again. I could not bare the pain of it all. *winks*

I still don't see why a handsome devil like yourself does not have them lined up. :P

Oh yes. Older and wiser. I can see that you are wiser from your post and it is wonderful. You have learned not to waste the time you have but to enjoy it to the fullest. That is what I plan for myself as well. So, to help me with that, tell me about what gets you rock... you know what I mean. ;)

I laughed out loud (literally) when I saw the photo...priceless!

Everyone should take some time to reacquaint themselves. It helps us mature and grow.

Hey, I've been on worse first dates... That's something else you learn to do with age: count your blessings :-)

Hmmm - i remember my LONG list of crazy men that were fantastic first dates. Sigh.

It is simply a matter of taking a deep breath, refilling the prescription and knowing that eventually the flood of crazy will dry up ;)
