An entire week without posts…shame on me! Life’s responsibilities and commitments have been sucking up all my time. Anyway, I will continue with the story of Cute Glasses…
As I explained previously, Cute Glasses was working away from home and dates were planned around his travel schedule. Due to his travel and my activities, we had to work to find time to hang out. For a third date he suggested that he cook dinner for me at his place. Now, if you refer back to my post about Random Set Up Guy you will see that a man asking you to come to his place can be a sign of potential creepiness. In that situation, it seemed that Random Set Up Guy was just trying to lure me to his house to have his way with me, so to speak. Cute Glasses invitation was much different. He offered to make dinner and then take me mini-golfing. His house was less then a half of a mile from the golf course. The fact that Cute Glasses had a plan and only the dinner portion of the date would take place at his home was another gold star on his dating report card. I was starting to like this guy more and more.
I brought two bottles of wine with me to Cute Glasses place, one for dinner and one for him to keep. He bought all the food for the dinner and he paid for the two previous dates so I felt inclined to show my appreciation. Cute Glasses said that he would keep the second bottle handy for the net time he made diner for me. It was then that I really started to think that Cute Glasses would make a good boyfriend. He was very considerate and referenced spending time together in the future. He showed his interest in continuing things with me without coming on to strong. It was a good balance.
I recalling going to dinner and a movie for our next date but the fifth date is a blur. What I do remember about the fifth date is that towards the end of the night, Cute Glasses sat me down for a talk.
He said, “We have been on about five or six dates at this point and I am really enjoying spending time with you. I am not seeing anyone else and I do not have plans to start seeing anyone else. I wanted to see how you felt about that and if you would be willing to make the same commitment?”
I was not dating anyone else at the time and I agreed to make our relationship exclusive. That night, Cute Glasses and I became boyfriend and girlfriend. It was a memorable night for me because I was confident that my relationship with Cute Glasses had a lot of potential. Because I had spent time working on myself and examining what I want in a partner, this would be different from relationships past. I would still focus on my friends and activities just the same as I had before, but I would also set time aside to be with my new boyfriend.
