Date Number One -- New Mexico

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.  :)
