A bit of background on me...
I'm a late 40's father of two pre-teens. Dated a few women I met online after my marriage failed in 2009. Was in a committed relationship with a great woman last year for 10 months but I had to end it in early January this year because she was not "the one". So I'm new into the game and just found this site last week.
Now a bit of background on this HB7...
Met her online and have been texting and talking on the phone at least every other day for the past two weeks. From our communications I figured she was either a Connoisseur (NDR) or Modern Woman (NJR), but after the date I think she's the former – doesn't strike me as a Justifier... too sensible. Never married, owns her own successful business and has had serious relationship in the past with a single father.
And now to the date...
It was brunch at noon at a nice but busy and noisy spot. Conversation flowed, we enjoyed each others company and sense of humours. I didn't bust on her too many times, but I did get a few in, but nothing too bad. No opportunity for Kino due to the seating position and size of the table, but we did start the date with a hug when we met outside before going in. It was a very nice and comfortable hour and a half.
There were not too many blatant IOIs, but there were no IODs!
I ended the date while things were still positive, and didn't want to try to stretch it any further. I offered her a lift home and was able to interlock arms with her so I could help her negotiate some icy patches on the sidewalks. In the car conversation continued to flow and she asked me to clarify a critical part of my online profile – the want of a beautiful lover – that she had recently gone back to read. I could tell that the answer I gave her was the answer she wanted to hear.
I parked in front her place, I took her hand and we both commented on having a wonderful time, we smiled at each other, she hesitated for a fraction of a second and then got out and went into her place.
I didn't go for the kiss because it was 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and just didn't seem like the right time of day with it being a first date and all. I also didn't mention anything about seeing her again or even wanting to see her again. I would like date #2... and probably more! She gave me no indication that she might not feel the same way.
So my questions now are...
- Did I handle the end of this date correctly?
- How long should I wait before making contact again? (she's works late tonight)
- When (or if) I do contact her, do we just talk like this is just us continuing this "new relationship", or do I come right to the point and tell her again that I had a great time, and would love to go out with her again sometime?
I am currently trying to find answers here in the forums, but I'm having a hard time locating what I need and time may be of the essence, as my next 24 to 36 hours will be busy with visiting family members. Sorry for all the detail, but figure I can't get good answers or tips if you don't know what transpired.
