Uggh. Sorry about the awful date, though that sounded more like a sales pitch. Yet another reason to meet sooner rather than later.

Saturday date came back into town and we went to the pool and then I took him out to dinner on Monday. We had a very nice time and I'm going over to his house for dinner later this week. I think I'm going to give this guy my sole attention to see where it goes, as he's the nicest man I've been out with. And not just since I got back out there. The nicest guy EVER.

I have to be put under next week to get two teeth surgically removed, and he's taking me there, waiting through the procedure, and taking me home. I suck at asking for help, and he OFFERED and wouldn't take no for an answer while I was doing a very bad job of accepting his help, and I am very very grateful that he's willing to do this for me.

If I end up with this man, it will not be because I deserve him! He's more than I deserve.

WXH: Who cares? He's a dumpster fire shit show. NC since D (with cause) in 2004.

I don’t know you or him but you seem like a capable, intelligent woman and you deserve every bit of wonderful that comes your way. You also deserve to be cared for a treated well - you can appreciate that he is a good man while still acknowledging that you deserve a good man and to be treated well.

Saturday date had me over to his house on Friday night for dinner and the hockey game.

His house is NOT single guy sad. A big plus.

His dog loves me. (The feeling is mutual.) Another big plus.

He did not try to jump me. We did finally do some decent kissing. A HUGE plus!

He told me yesterday that he is off the dating site. I haven't been on in a week. It's time for me to get online and hide my profile again.

We're meeting later today at the dog park so our furbabies can meet. It's a big day!

I usually lay around on Sunday mornings. So far, I've worked out, walked the dog, cleaned the kitchen, and had a healthy breakfast. What is up with me?

I have found myself a bonafide cheerleader.

He took me to and from surgery. I made him breakfast before he drove me there. He met my mother. Neither of us are in a hurry to meet each others' parents, but it was unavoidable.

He stayed through surgery then drove my drug-addled brain to the pharmacy and then home. And he texted me later to remind me to take my medication. (What medication? I completely forgot that I had taken medication when we got me home.) I have no idea how I got into my pajamas and into bed. If he helped, that was the first time he saw me in my underwear. Oops! I didn't even think about it, or if I did, I have forgotten it. But we had been to the pool before, and my bikini and my standard-issue underthings are pretty much the same so I guess it's ok. (Props to Vicky and her Secrets for attiring me in both!)

I'm looking for a new job. I had a first interview today, and it went well. The salary is more than double what I'm making now (I am SO underpaid right now!), plus a 10% bonus. My ex (not the cheating one, the most recent one) would have told me I was stupid for hanging in there so long with my current company. Not Mr. Saturday Date. He was all about how I deserve every penny and my current boss is going to be sorry for losing me, and reassuring me that I can do this job - after all, it's just a fraction of what I do now in my current position.

What magical vat of awesome men did I happen to dip into when I found this guy? This man is fabulous!

Part of me keeps reminding me that I feel this way about everybody that I date when things are first getting off the ground. I'm currently telling that part of me to shut the hell up and let me be optimistic for once.

Oh, but here's the sad part. Sunday, we were supposed to go out. He got sunburned on Saturday and sun poisoning on Sunday. So I head over there with aloe, slather it all over him, then snuggled the crap out of his dog. Yesterday, I had surgery. Today, he has a head cold, but tested negative for Covid. I'd like things to get more physical, but between the two of us, I don't know when we'll both be healthy enough to do so.

Just more anecdotal proof that God has a wicked sense of humor!
