Yep, Went On A Date

It might seem ridiculous that I’m writing about this but for me it’s a big deal, especially because I have been so stuck at home inside my head.  This depression has turned me into a hardcore introvert!  I’d go so far to say it’s turned me into a depressovert, much worse than an introvert.  It’s something less functional than an introvert.  Maybe I’m starting to come out of it.  I feel like I’m slowly coming out of it and all I can say is YAY!!  So I went on a date with a very nice man.  Fortunately for me he seemed comfortable with doing most of the talking, peppering the conversation with some questions from time to time, which got me to talk too.  And, my therapist gave me some good advice:  when you can’t think of anything to say, just be curious and ask lots of questions!  It makes the other person feel good and it looks like you’re interested.  So, I was curious.

This dude will have to be told, sooner rather than later, that I’d like to go slower than molasses in terms of getting to know each other.  I get the feeling that he will be ok with this.  I think he’s pretty nice.  If he’s not ok with it I’ve got #2 guy to go out with.  Hey!  I’ve got one waiting in the wings.  Yeah!  This is snappy!  This really has been a banner week.  What’s next, I win the lottery?  Get a promotion at work?  Hmmm what other ridiculous things can I suggest….meet Jennifer Garner one of my favorite actresses?  Sell all my shit on etsy?  Fun thoughts….

Well it’s time to go to “work” now.  Not much work going on, they are not giving me any, so I am reading a book at work called “Should I do what I love?”.  Good book.  Have a good day, friends!  Peaches!

  1. Congratulations! I’m very proud of you – you’ve done something I will not in a million years be able to work up the nerve to try and do, so I’m going to live vicariously through you. I hope you had fun, and that you will try it again. Be honest with him and with yourself and I think that everything will work out well.

  2. Congrats! I have issues going out, mostly because I would rather sit at home, but I’m working on it. I hope he understands the going slow thing, and I hope it works out for you! 🙂
