So, we met today and he's very kind, considerate, well mannered, polite, intelligent, easy going, sophisticated - basically the kind of man I've been waiting to meet. But, I don't think we're right for each other. I'm way too over the top for him, I curse too much, I'm too reactionary, too blah! I come off as a ding bat and, if he hadn't told me he's in IT, I would've thought he was in the policy world.
We spent the whole afternoon together and I really didn't want the afternoon to end. I don't think he did, either, as he walked almost half way home with me and the route was out of his way. He's very much a man that could easily be taken advantage of because he's so very polite and reserved, but I'm an artist and I think I will get on his nerves because I'm not as grounded as he is. Artists or those familiar with artists will know what I mean. We're at very different points in our lives and I think with me looking to seriously move and him looking seriously to stay here and be in a relationship, nothing will come of this. Plus, the career that I will more than likely have is not conducive to his lifestyle.
He's going out of town this week to visit friends and we agreed it would be nice to see each other again. It would be. I wonder if I had met him under different circumstances, as in at a social event totally unrelated to dating or being matched up, "Would anything come of this?" even be a question? I definitely can't be my loud obnoxious self when that part magically appears - some have referred to it as energy or called me a firecracker. For others, I'm sure it's just annoying. I'm not completely honest in that way with who I am when around him because I have dial it back a bit. All I can say is, I will only know with time. So, we'll see.
