was it a date?First time ever for me since becoming single to spend any alone time with a man! What a breakthrough! My ex made me feel so low about myself that I just couldn't muster up the courage to go on a date. I really have trouble accepting myself physically (thanks to ex, mostly).
So this guy "R" and I went snowshoeing to a secluded canyon today (one we have hiked in the past). It was lovely. He brought his dog along. We sat on a fallen tree at a high point with a very nice view and talked for about an hour. It was cold and windy, but so sunny and the company was A+! "R" and I already knew each other. We kind of dated before I met my ex. But we never even kissed in those early days. The most we ever did was hold hands. Today we hugged hello and goodbye (I always hug hello and goodbye), and I got the feeling he wanted a goodbye kiss but I just wasn't ready.
I don't know if I should go out with him again. The reason why I didn't get serious with him the first time around was because I felt like I would be settling. But this time around I feel very different about myself...kinda feel like if it's a good guy, I should go for it even if all the "must haves" aren't all there. You know the kind of guy you wouldn't be proud to walk around town with? Or the one you wouldn't want to take to go out with your friends? It's all superficial too, which makes me feel so terrible. He's really short (and I am too, but he's a guy and is probably 5'4"-5'6"?), he's bald, and 10 yrs older than me. I believe he is a good person. So I wonder if it's a case of "he's a good guy, pass him and go for the bad boy" type of thing. Any advice on this?
We both left at wanting to go out again. I feel like I lead him on a little bit the first time.......and I'm wondering if he is interested..... Would a guy take a girl out snowshoeing just because? Or does it mean he likes you? Was this even a date? lol
