People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

# 26 Mr. Active

Another day, another date. Are you keeping up? I hardly am. So, yesterday I met yet another online potential. This new site seems to be producing in abundance. Anyway, let me tell you a little bit about this one. We exchanged a few emails online and then he asked for my number. We texted several times and then he asked if he could call me. He did call me, when I was getting ready for date #25 the other night. We had been texting quite a bit so I was a little nervous. Why? Well, because we were all fun and flirty and sarcastic and I didn’t want him to be super weird in real life. The conversation went really well though. We talked for a long time and then I had to go on my other date.

After our conversation he texted me and said, “It was fun to talk to you.” I agreed. It was fun. His sarcasm almost matches my own…which is delightful. The next day I had a concert in the tabernacle. He decided he wanted to come and see it. I didn’t invite him or anything but I was kind of excited that he wanted to. He told me in a text that morning that he was breaking a rule with me. I was kind of surprised and asked what it was. He told me not to laugh and then revealed that he usually doesn’t talk to girls this much before he meets them. I completely understood why because I am the same way! I like to meet people because they are so often weird in person. Just like my friend and I decided…some people you just like better cyber. I told him about that and he laughed. :) He told me I better not disappoint and I gave him the same warning back.

After my concert I called him to find out where he was. I saw him first and was pleasantly surprised and relieved at the same time!  He was good looking! We had a fun conversation and it wasn’t too awkward. He also seemed really pleased with the concert. He liked it! Yay!! I sing in a women’s choir and afterward the men’s choir performed. I have a friend in it so I was staying for that. He knew this so when they were starting I said goodbye to him. He gave me a hug and took off. He soon texted and said it was nice to meet me. I replied the same back to him and we texted back and forth the rest of the night. 

So, finally we get to the big date yesterday. We had decided to go on a hike. How refreshing to do something different!!! I was way excited. We went up Mill B North in Big Cottonwood. We talked easily and I kept up with him really well. By the way, he is pretty darn in shape. My sister saw him the other night and thought I should name him Mr. Buff but I didn’t. Anyway, we hiked up a ways to this Salt Lake overlook. We sat and talked there awhile and then he asked if I wanted to hike some more…and I did. So, we climbed quite a bit further until we ran into some tricky snow where he pulled a muscle, causing us to have to turn around and head back down. All in all, we hiked about 5.5 miles and climbed over 2,000 feet! It was great! So nice to do that for a date, really. Well, except that I was all sweaty. We talked easily and just enjoyed nature and each other’s company. 

We were together for about 4.5 hours and we both had stuff going on after so we said goodbye back at me car. He gave me a hug and I left. Soon after, he texted and said, “That was fun.” I agreed and thanked him for taking me. He said, “Let’s do it again.” I told him I’d love to. So my friends, we have a new potential! He is nice, funny, a couple years older than me, has a job, and is doing things with his life. He is also divorced and has two children. I really don’t know what will happen but it’s nice to be thinking about other guys for now…
