So here is a sad twist.
I finally went on a date with someone this past weekend, and we had a good time. He was a gentleman and sweet, and things were good. I’ve got the whole intimacy issues thing but he managed to go in for the kill and we kissed… a lot.
I thought everything was going well! He was talking about going ice skating and seeing movies together!
This morning I wake up to a text essentially dumping me (I know it was one date, but there was the implicit promise of more!).
So yeah. Dumped.
The reason why?
Ouch. Never saw that one coming.
This guy is a super devout Christian and through a strange twist of fate our religious choices entered the scene over dinner. I don’t feel like writing all the details, but he seemed fine with me being Pagan after I explained to him what it was. He even asked if I was ok with him being Christian… weird.
I thought he was ok with everything (the many many kisses and tender touches didn’t state otherwise!) but I guess he wasn’t.
I wasn’t super hot for him, just enough to be ok with a second date to see where things go, so this isn’t a huge loss. If I look on the bright side it was at least nice to be kissed by someone, and also find out early on that it wouldn’t work, rather than investing more emotions and time into things.
But it still hurts. I thought I had finally become normal, but I guess not.
