So I went on a date Friday night. I met this guy on Spiritual Sin.gles. I was impressed with the work he does in sustainability innovation but wasn't sure about the attraction part. His one picture showed possibly not great posture and a belly... I don't mind if someone is carrying extra weight, as I am myself, but it's about how it all comes together for me in an individual's physicality. And I have had quite a few experiences where a guy put up a picture that was extremely flattering and they looked quite different in person.
Anyway, happily this was not the case here. He was tall and sort of pleasingly big and had an overall appeal. He's bald, has blue eyes, and is a little goofy looking in a cute way I liked his eco-manly clothing style too, lol.
We went to a Kirtan (chanting) concert, which was great. Lots of loving people and energy.
I warned him I was a new puppy parent and may fall asleep during the concert. As it turned out it was engaging enough to keep me awake, but I spent a good portion with my head leaning on his shoulder, his arm around me. This felt surprisingly comfortable. Physically we seem compatible so far, especially considering how our evening ended. More on that later.
Before the concert and at the intermission, we talked. I'm not sure our conversation styles are compatible, but he was open to the question game so that's a plus (where we take turns asking questions). I think he's a deep person but... Well, it's too early to tell.
At the end of the night, he asked me to come in, but I had to get back to Zoey puppy. So we ended up kissing in the car. It was very fun. :-). He has a conference this week but asked me out for next Saturday. I just realized, however, I have the Transition Town conference until seven that day.
Oh well, we'll figure something out. I admit to feeling some excitement.
