I went on a date with Craig today, the first date I’ve been on since leaving Tom and my first date in over seven years. To say I was a nervous wreck would be an understatement. We arranged to meet at a local pub at lunchtime, I was there first and waited nervously for him. He walked in, made me jump, made me laugh and I knew we were going to get on fine. We ordered our food, he took the piss out of my shaky hands, said I didn’t need to be nervous and then we talked non-stop for ninety minutes. Conversation flowed so easily. When it came to saying goodbye I was really nervous in case he tried to kiss me but thankfully he was a gentleman, gave me a kiss on the cheek and said goodbye.
Ten minutes later, I got a text from Craig telling me I was sexy as hell! Oh my God! I needed to hear that. He’s doing wonders for my self-esteem.
