Okay, so I thought I should let you all know how our date went last night!
We went to the movies with a group of old friends like we previously planned, which was really fun. The boys wanted to see “The Purge” – which was freaky but I didn’t mind because it gave me a reason to hold Jake’s hand. lol.
Then afterwards him and I decided to go to a restaurant that we both love but it was way too busy. There was an hour long wait… on a Thursday! Apparently someone was throwing a huge party… Ugh! So Jake asked me if I wanted to go to his house instead and we could just cook something. Awesome idea! So that’s what we did.
Now since he’s in the process of moving back to town, I honestly expected his house to be a mess with boxes everywhere but I was wrong. No boxes, no dirty dishes in the sink, no dirty clothes on the floor, no foul smell. His place was immaculate. Finally, a guy who knows how to keep a clean house and he actually knows how to decorate! He’s like a little susie homemaker. lol!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a guy’s house and was totally grossed out so him having a clean, nicely decorated place was a big deal to me. Anyway..
This is embarrassing but I’m a terrible cook. So he cooked our meal and I “helped” him as much as I could. He did an amazing job and he agreed to give me cooking lessons. haha!
I’m sure it sounds cheesy reading this but it was so romantic. He has a patio set out in his backyard with these hanging lights so we ate dinner outside next to his outdoor fireplace (First time he’s ever used it!) But we were only out there for about 45 minutes before it started to rain so we went back inside and hung out.
As we were hanging out after dinner, he asked me if I was seeing anyone else and I told him that I wasn’t, only him. Suddenly he got really shy and quiet and asked, “Would you maybe consider being in a relationship with me?” Of course I said yes! Then he had the biggest smile his face.. melted my heart! So now we’re in a relationship and I can call him my boyfriend!
I’M SO HAPPY! You guys are the best because you encouraged me to go after him! It seems crazy that just a week or two ago, I saw him at a wedding reception and now here we are in a relationship. So thank you!!!!!
