If you know me you know I’ve gone on some horrible dates.
However, some people surprise you and you end up on a fantastic date. Let’s face it, it was bound to happen. They can’t all be bad dates.
My go date activity is a walking coffee. (Get coffee, walk around)
Two reasons: one I have a serious coffee addiction and two, I like walking around and exploring.
I feel like I need to give you all a bit of back story about this date.
I came across Allan* on tinder and it was his picture that had me go “Holy hell he’s cute, I’m swiping right!” I immediately thought to myself, I should have probably read the words in his profile before swiping right. But lo and behold, it was a match!
*Names have been changed because privacy.
Now you are probably wondering what did this profile picture look like? Well, it was a very adorable picture of Allan and his dog. His dog is super cute, so I may have swiped right for the dog, stayed for the human.
Allan and I got to chatting over Tinder and I realized that he’s a genuine nice guy, so I wanted to meet him. He works in the film Industry so trying to nail down a date with him was a bit hard because his hours and my hours didn’t match up. We agreed that later that afternoon was best and we should do a walking coffee.
Allan and I met up at Starbucks for coffee. The first thing I did upon meeting him was pet the dog. I was very excited about the dog because he’s super adorable. If you look into my Instagram you will find the picture of said adorable dog.
Allan, adorable dog and I ended up walking around a pond near my house. It might be that I’ve been on so many bad dates that when someone asks a question about me and the things I’m interested in, I’m over the moon. I’m not asking all the questions and pulling teeth to get the conversation going.
So with that said we ended up talking for about four hours. Without realizing that four hours had passed.
We had realized it was getting late when we watched the sunset threw the trees and the street lights coming on.
When I say my life is like a movie, it’s true because sometimes romantic things actually happen. Let me set the scene.
Scooting closer to each other
Sneaking your arm around the other
Stealing a kiss under the stars
All the while a dog tries to figure out what’s rustling around in the bushes behind you.
I may have romanticized it a bit, but I’m a sucker for sunsets and smooches.
Bonus if they happen at the same time.
We may have proceeded to smooch for a little while longer, and then realized the hour.
My favorite part was not the kiss at sunset but the fact that Allan wanted to walk me home to make sure I got home safe. OK so, maybe from sunset on was my favorite part of the date.
I remember standing at my front gate and saying “I had a great time tonight and I would like to see you again, I’ll message you my number and we will plan for a movie or something”. It’s pretty obvious that Allan got my number, I got a second date and the adorable dog got to go on a few more walks with two humans.
I also happened to end up with to mosquito bites on my feet. So for the next five days, when my feet would itch, I would think of smooches under the stars.
I have one more Tinder date to tell, remember Esteban? Stay tuned for that blog post.
All the best!
