Back in the saddle

I had the best first date of my life on Sunday night.

Only a handful of people reading this will understand how impressive this is, based on numbers alone. I met this cute, blond, medical malpractice lawyer (we'll call him MML) about a year ago, right before I started dating J-Dogg. We have a mutual friend, but we actually met at a bar and hit it off immediately. We didn't see each other again after that, until our mutual friend recently decided to set us up. Knowing that I would never agree to send a preliminary picture to this guy, my friend stole a couple photos of me off my roommate's MySpace page and sent them to MML. A couple days later I got a phone call, and a couple of days after that, we were on a date. Not exactly my ideal set up, but I've never been so happy to have been pimped out in my entire life.

I've always had a way of knowing if a date was going to be good within the first five minutes, and as cheesy as this sounds, the second I opened my front door, I knew we were going to have a blast. We laughed a lot, and talked about work, friends, family and being set up. There were a couple of moments when I caught him staring at me, but not in a "dude, she's hot, I hope she'll sleep with me" kind of way...it was more of a "I feel lucky to be here with her" kind of way, and it definitely made me blush.

When he was driving me home, I was surprised to find that I was disappointed the evening was coming to an end. He walked me to my gate and after I thanked him again for dinner, we had the hottest almost-kiss moment I've had since J-Dogg and I broke up for the first time. MML called yesterday and we made plans to hang out again. Obviously I don't know what's going to happen, but it's really nice to have something to look forward to...
