I love Mary J. Blige…her music reminds me why I love being such an unpredictable, passionate, over the top romantic…the lyrics of this song truly epitomizes how l love to feel when I am in a relationship…Just thought I’d share:
So…the date was nice, very nice. A love connection? I’d have to say no. However, it was super incredible being pampered and treated like a lady by a man who takes the art of chivalry (and it is most definitely an art) so seriously. Not only was every door opened, but I felt like a delicate flower that he wanted to protect for the evening. An interesting experience for sure. Most of the time the guys I meet love to remind me of how strong and independent I am. And don’t get me wrong—I am, and I enjoy being defined that way; nevertheless that doesn’t mean there isn’t another side of me that enjoys being treated like a “woman.” I enjoy the company of strong men who know when and how to take the lead–without being overbearing, condescending or arrogant. A strong man knows how to treat a strong woman. So yeah, not sure about a second date…like I said no love connection, but I did meet a genuinely nice guy, had a wonderful evening and found out that chivalry wasn’t dead after all. Who knew?
But at the end of the day…I’m SUCH a romantic. Hence the reason why this song hits me hard every time I hear it: Enjoy the video:
I have taken the first step…I’m actually going on a date (yes, miracles do happen). What does this mean for me exactly? It means that I have completely and utterly forgotten the art of small talk. I am so used to being in a business, networking state of mind that I literally forgotten how to conduct that “getting to know you” conversation. On a serious tip, I haven’t had a date or conversation with a guy that was completely new to me in a very long time (no need to say how long). Most of the gentlemen I deal with I have known from various social or business circles prior to us going out.
So in preparation of my “date,” I did what every girl does…I started googling tips and best practices (Yes, I am a nerd). And as a result, I found the most hilarious “how-to” dating video. Please watch and comment. And don’t worry, I will keep you all posted on the date…as if I could keep it to myself, lol.
