After that, we went to dinner at Parkside Tavern. Burgers were yummy and I find my initial fears about us not having anything to talk about waning. I worry sometimes about monopolizing conversations and not having a lot of dialogue with the men I date, but he keeps up with me and conversations have become really easy. I also like that it's so apparent that we're dating when we go out to dinner or a concert or anything. I think I dated a lot of men who didn't like to touch me when we were out. Or who were awkward about it. It's not like that at all with him.
Following our dinner, we headed over to S&J's for their Bread Share party. OMG, so much good bread! And I've discovered that prosecco + sprite = amazing. I think I had like 4 of them. The party was fun - I love my drunk, inappropriate friends and TOJ didn't seem put off by the craziness at all. Post-party, we came home and got into bed. Of course, my stupid period had to ruin us sleeping together, but we still managed to have a good time. On a tangent, I love how I'm dating someone that really turns me on a LOT and yet we seem to have the worst luck with actually being able to sleep together. I'm leaving tomorrow for four days, so I guess I'm on my own for the next week. I guess that's what happens when you're a busy girl who travels a lot dating a busy guy who travels a lot.
I forced him to get up early and come to brunch with me at Zazie even though he hates brunch. He was pretty grumpy until I got some coffee in him, but to be honest I like the grumpiness. I'm super fucking bitchy about 75% of the time and so I don't mind his grumbling, especially since it wasn't directed at me.
Anyhow, I'm sickeningly, stupidly happy about him and I only hope he feels the same way about me. Already plotting all the racy photos I'm going to take for him while I'm in Vegas. When dating goes well, it's actually a lot of fun.
