I for one will not really miss the skinny models or the "Single Ladies" song blaring over and over and over. I will miss the free champagne! All in all, I don't think it was a waste of time, I mean if I didn't go, I would have missed Granny! Ah, Granny, she walked into the last boot camp wearing black and white sunglasses ala "Hollywood" from the movie Mannequin. It was awesome! She was also the one to ask the man panel how to handle the situation if the man you are being intimate with loses their erection. So needless to say, the whole thing wouldn't have been the same without Granny!
But into what they really talked about on our last week, it was basically the Do's and Don't's of a first date. Some of what they said was just basic, like really? I shouldn't talk about my years of therapy and the crazy people in my family? Huh, I thought that would make lively dinner conversation! In the end, I would have to say that I had so much fun just being with my friend, drinking free champagne and just making light of the situation. I mean, I didn't take the whole thing so seriously, and to be honest I think that's the lesson I walked away with. Just have fun!
Which brings me to "F." Because having fun is exactly what I am doing. I like him alot, and I know he likes me, and I look forward to seeing him every time we go out. We did go out again last night for dinner and then he came back to my place to watch the end of the Red Sox/ Yankees (Go Sox!) game. While we were at dinner he said that while he isn't counting how many dates we have been on, but he knows its five and that he feels like it has been more. While I don't necessarily feel the same way, I told him that I just am enjoying being with him and excited to see where this is going. That's a huge step for me! I am not always the best at sharing how I am feeling. My accomplice knows that while I have the worst poker face I don't always share right away. But I will say sharing with "F" feels all right and while I am not letting down every wall I am trying and I think I am doing all right!
