If I lived in Albuquerque, I would definitely want to see Mr. New Mexico again. My first thought was a girlish, "Ohmygosh, he's cute!" And he was a great conversationalist! We talked about Africa and orphans and traveling and family . . . time flew. Women of Albuquerque, what's wrong with you? Why is this man still single? (Okay, admittedly, I didn't ask him if he wants to get married . . . maybe he's enjoying his freedom, but dang, what a catch!)
I have to admit that I was doubting myself a little before the date. This week has been chaotic, to say the least. I moved all of my stuff on Monday, cleaned & closed on my house on Tuesday, finished up at work on Wednesday, and was on the road today. I'm pretty exhausted. I have a bad haircut, a zit on my chin, and my new jeans suddenly seem much bigger than they were in the dressing room last week. All in all I wasn't feeling very attractive and wondered if all these guys I'm about to go out with will be disappointed. But once I got there and we started talking and this great guy was smiling at me and enjoying my company, I forgot about all the things I was worried about earlier.
I came away from date one thinking this is going to be okay. This will not be a train wreck. It's going to be fun, and I'm going to meet a lot of great people. It will be the adventure of a lifetime. And if any single ladies in Albuquerque want to meet this great guy, I'll see what I can do. :)
