Part I of this trilogy is the Photographer:
We went out on a Saturday night and hit it off instantly. He was a 34 year old photographer/creative director for an Ad Agency in NYC. I liked that he wasn't the typical lawyer/finance guy that I generally meet in NYC. After a great first date, things continued to go well. He made plans with me in advance, would text me just to say hi and would say sweet things like "you're adorable, just wanted to let you know." I was smitten.
We went on a few more good dates and then I noticed that he wasn't texting me as often. After a
The next evening I rushed home after work, showered, got all dressed up, did my make up and met him downstairs where he was waiting to pick me up. We went to the party and it was little weird at first considering I had only been out with him a few times. But, a few glasses of wine later, I was having a ball.
We danced and laughed and ate (I tried to control myself and not eat like I normally do, which is like food is going out of style)...it was an awesome night. At the end of it, we didn't want to go home, but it was too late to go out (I don't stop acting like a grandma for anyone)...so, I said he could come over as long as he didn't have any expectations. He came back, I stuck to my word and the next morning, after I was done getting ready for work, we walked to Starbucks together...got our coffee and then got on the subway. We were discussing New Year's and he said he didn't know whether he wanted to stay in Maine (he was going home for Christmas in about a week) or come back to the city. He said he preferred to stay in the city, but it didn't sound like he had any plans to come back for. So, I stupidly invited him to my New Year's party that I was going to have at my apartment. He seemed surprised in a nice way and said he would let me know.
The following week he left for Maine and I never saw him again. While he was there he texted me saying "Merry Christmas," but that was really it. He never got back to me about New Year's and I slowly got over him.
He did reappear though. But, that's in Part III.
