"Not Your Average Joe's..."

... Is certainly true to its name! After an awesome evening of training *her*," riding back home, and renting a movie, we decided we were too tired to cook. So we ordered take-out. I had been dying to try that place and sure enough, the dinner was perfect!

I can't believe what an evening it was. I don't think I've ever had a date last that long... 4:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. (No, we weren't doing THAT, heh heh) We spent it just talking and talking.

This is ideal to me: getting to be someone's friend before anything else. Yes, we regard it as dating, but we both recognize the importance of learning about one and other. And I like that. The more I get to know her, the more I'm glad I met her. She's someone I hope to have in my life a long time, as a friend or otherwise. You don't often find someone you click with that fast.

So all in all, a picture-perfect evening.

As I was driving home another happy thought popped into my head... my family. The other day I was talking to my Dad on the phone and he had asked what I did the previous evening. I decided to just tell him.

I said, "I went on a date with this awesome girl I met..."

I told him a little about what we did. His response? Well, I think he was a little startled because he probably expected me to talk about someone else. (We had recently gone out to Dali's for our "6 month's" and I had mentioned to my Dad that it was coming up, but never said anything further. So I have a feeling he thought I meant that)

But he was so cute! After I got done he said, "Wow! That's a long evening! Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. That's good, I'm glad..."

So as I drove home tonight I replayed that conversation in my head... And a smile spead across my face as I truly realized that whether I end up with a guy or girl in the long run, the important thing is that I can talk about it and not feel anything's wrong. That's important to me. I'm proud of who I am and when I fall in love, I want to be able to share it with the whole world...! : )
