On Sunday I had two dates.
I normally wouldn’t drive out of my way to go on a coffee date, but the meeting place was Barnes & Noble in White Plains, NY. I love book stores. This guy and I had been exchanging hellos for awhile and I wanted to see if there was anything there.
We agreed to meet at 10am. I went earlier to browse the shelves, but they only open at 10am :-(. Even though there was a Starbucks inside Barnes & Noble we decided to walk across the street to Hastings Tea & Coffee and sit outside.
He is a 65 year old doctor. He still works. He has some kind of rotation that has him working for 24 hours once every two weeks. I would love that schedule.
He looked, dressed and acted younger than his age. I enjoyed meeting him and we talking about a lot different things, including spiritual stuff. Time flew by. I realized it was already almost noon and I quickly got up to leave. He was surprised I was leaving.
I am not sure if there will be a second date. Even though the conversation was great, I am not sure if there is enough there to meet up again. We shall see.
After that date I was supposed to go with a friend to brunch but she canceled last minute. I had brunch at home with my sister and did stuff around the apartment.
The cute dog above is Mr. W. I don’t want to disclose his name, but he has an imposing name that starts with W., so use your imagination.
I met my date and Mr. W. at 5:30pm at The Broken Bow Brewery in Tuckahoe, NY. They were were sitting at a table outside in the back. Mr W. is the nicest, quietest dog you could ever meet. My date had a flight of beers, I had nothing. I didn’t want to drink or eat anything before dinner.
At 6:30pm we left and went to Burrata Restaurant in Eastchester, NY, just a few blocks away. We had a couple of appetizers of eggplant and meatball and we shared a couple of pizza pies, a margherita and a prosciutto. I had a Cappelletti spritz cocktail, he had red wine. Everything was delicious.
I didn’t have dessert. A win! But don’t be so proud, I have been overindulging in sugar at all other times.
Similar to the first date, we had a great time. It feels like we are old friends. We talk and laugh a lot. We talk a lot about cool restaurants, vacations, works, etc. I like picking his brain on technology topics.
At the end of dinner, I stopped by his car to say bye to Mr. W. He had stayed in the car while we were at the restaurant. The car has dog mode, which I had never heard of before meeting him. It means that it is climate controlled, and there is the huge sign on the dashboard alerting passersby:
We awkwardly hugged goodbye. As we quickly hugged I think that I subconsciously avoided his lips, so there was this quick brush on the side of my lips. There was not an ounce of romance vibe during dinner, so I didn’t expect anything. I am not sure if he is just shy or doesn’t have much interest. So, I am not even sure if he was trying to kiss me.
We will see if there is a third date…
I have 2 dates this week with 2 new characters 🙂 I decided not to wait for life to slow down to live it up.
