Thoughts on my first date
Honestly, I don't know how things will go from here. I'm not used to a guy being SO interested in me. Plus my guard is up. After the date, I kept knit-picking certain things he said or did that reminded me of my ex....I was so scared of getting hurt, so kept judging him My date liked to drink, and it brought back a lot of bad memories of my ex. I had to remind myself he is not my ex, and I shouldn't be so quick to judge. My date calls and texts a lot, and is interested in what I have to say. He's interested in getting to know more about my culture and my interests which is refreshing. He's a man with a plan-In the next few years, he wants to move to his home town, settle down and have kids.
Who knows...we may end just friends or develop a relationship. But I don't want my past to cloud my future and prevent me from getting to know a great guy. I'm just staying cautious, being aware of what I do, and really praying about this.
