Well, I’m back to continue to the story from my last post. So we last left off with us in the car and she asked me to tell her some nice things about herself and I did. Fabulous, that worked out nicely but she was still quite skeptical that I was really interested in her (I guess holding hands in an empty, cold theater doesn’t really count). At this point we must have spent a good 8 hours together that day but we weren’t done yet, not by a long shot. We drove away from that parking lot and went to a less crowded one (where she left her car earlier. She drove my car back; something that I don’t let people do 😛 ). Forgive me for the lack of detail here but I don’t exactly remember how we got to this question but somehow we get back to talking about the qualities that she possesses that I really like. It is at this point that I, as she would call it, drop the the bombshell. I listed off many of the qualities that I like but concluded with something along the lines of, “…but you’re divorced so there is no way I can get passed that.” Now at the moment of saying it I never really considered it to be a big deal. To be honest because we were both Christians I just assumed that this was something that was known but apparently I was wrong, very wrong. Even though to this point we were never physical (no touching, no kissing just good conversation and a lot of time spent together) she still must have held out hope that something could happen. I don’t remember all of the details of her reaction but I do know that she was saddened more than angry about it. The conversation continued (not completely focused on the “bombshell”) and again (sorry for the lack of deatail) she decided to throw me a miny bombshell of her own, “Why don’t we just kiss to see if there is anything there. At least we won’t have to wonder and at worst we could have a good memory”. Of course I’m not used to girls just coming out and basically throwing themselves at me (probably more due to the type of girls I hang around and not necessarily because girls don’t ever do it)so I was a little taken back. I told her, in essence, “No way, this is crazy. Why would you even suggest that. What kind of girl does that”. To this reaction she assured me that it wasn’t because it’s something she does often. In fact she suggested that she has never made such a proposal in all of her life and she wasn’t exactly sure why she did with me. Needless to say I wasn’t completely convinced about that. I would say that in the back of my mind was the thought that she was just very liberal in her thinking towards sexuality (not my cup of tea when it comes to a women I would date to say the least). Anyways, though the rest of the night was every bit as great as the first half of the night we still had that “minor” disagreement. Overall we spent about 12 hours with each other that day (close to 7 hours in the car after the movie) and I kid you not, it felt like about 2 hours. We were both shocked when we started taking note of the time. Although the “deal breaker” was revealed (the fact that I couldn’t marry a woman who was divorced) we still had a special kind of chemistry and we just clicked.
Ok, that’s all for now but next post I’ll talk about what happened after that date and what her reaction was after she had some time to think about it.
