First official date with Jasmine. I was very nervous. Especially when I texted her during the day to get her address and she didn't respond for several hours. I was laying my bed thinking maybe the date wouldn't even happen. I was so nervous that I almost didn't want it to happen. I thought "I could just chill at home tonight, maybe throw in a movie, eat some popcorn, it will be chill."
I showed up to her house a few minutes late. She was sitting on the front porch. She was taller than I remembered. Very pretty. We went to my favorite restaurant for dinner. She had been there before but I think she was still impressed. She ought to be; the meal cost me $100 with tip. But it was excellent food. And the perfect atmosphere to just sit and talk. I really enjoyed having her full attention. The conversation went really well. I made her laugh, I learned a lot about her. One of my favorite things was when she adjusted her sitting position and her foot bumped my leg. Rather than move it, she just left it there. It sort of broke down the touch barrier.
After dinner, we were going to go for a walk. She was house sitting nearby so we drove to two houses so she could feed two cats at one place, and a dog at the other. She is quite motherly with animals. I am willing to admit that it freaks me out just a little. She has a dog and a cat and she calls them her babies. Kinda weird...
We drove downtown and had about 20 minutes to kill so we went for a short walk. A bluegrass band was playing. We watched for a minute and then walked to the movie theater. We were gonna go see some political movie but Jasmine saw that Paper Heart was playing and she got really excited and begged me to go see that instead. She was so excited about it, how could I say no? In truth, it was really good to see her that excited. I like it when people get really excited about things, even if they are really little things. Paper heart was a documentary about love. I loved it. Michael Cera was in it. The movie just fit perfectly with the evening. I reached over and put my hand on her leg and she immediately put her hand on my leg. I felt really close to her. We held hands and cuddled a little. Walking out of the theater, our hands instantly met. It was so great.
After the movie, we went to her place and I met her dog and cat. We took the dog for a long walk and talked. It was fun. I think I probably came across as really boring to her. It was hard to explain that I am a fun person that likes to do lots of things. I just couldn't really think of anything. We went back to her house, talked for a little bit, and then I took off. She had a picture there of her when she graduated from college. She was so gorgeous. I am not saying she isn't super pretty but in the picture, she looked like a movie star. We talked a little on the phone last night and are planning on doing something together this weekend. Thus far, things are going well.
