Ok…ok… people pick your jaws up off the floor…. I am just kidding….although….
I was more than impressed by him….. Let me back track a little….
I was seriously nervous about having him over…not because it would sort of be our first date…. But because after I said yes to him coming over for my family BBQ…. I realized it was my FAMILY BBQ….and everyone would be there…aunts, uncles, parents and Jeff, y’all remember him right?…
All those stereotypical families you see on TV… that’s my family…
I have the old southern aunts that all they sit around and talk about all day everyday, is having a man…needing a man and wanting a man…
I have the uncle who always has to control the grill only to burn most of the food and undercook the rest….
Then there is my father… well lets just say… I am his daughter and have never been married…and because am very secretive…he has only met one of my boyfriends, my sons father…so the thought of me being with someone would send him over the top.
Now let me tell you about this wonderful man…. My BBQ was to start at 12pm. He showed up at 10:30am, to help me get everything set up, and if that wasn’t sweet enough, he brought flowers. I introduced him to my father as a coworker, which I thought was ok.
The day went pretty much as I thought it would… I didn’t get to spend a lot of one on one time with him…trying to balance him and my family…so this was definitely not the ideal first date. I did however get to see him in action and see how and if he would fit in with my extended family. He did not disappoint.
He chatted with my dad as if they were old friends….flirted with my aunts and when I noticed that uncle Johnny was not at the grill, I asked him how he did it and he said…and I quote “I simply told him, I am more than just a coworker, and he is a guest in our home”.
I love this man.
The only problem of the night was Jeff, who was clearly seriously jealous. But that’s another time, another post.
The last guest left “OUR” home at about 11:30… he stayed to help me clean up.
He finally left at 2am…and I have to say I was very disappointed… he didn’t ask me out again, so I figured either my family scared him off….or he felt we were better off…just being friends…. Oh well it is what it is…
Then at 2:37am called me…and we talked till 7am…and not once did we mention work or anything work related. He also asked if we could have a “real date” and Saturday and of course I said yes… 🙂
So for the next 4 days… I will have butterflies in my stomach…and I have to see him tomorrow… I hope I can contain myself…
So…should I tell him of my huge crush on our date…or should I play it cool….
We will see
Good Night Gorgeous
