Again, any individual in education I have high respect for. :) The professor was very nice, cute in an Erkle kind of way. We had a lot of great phone conversations, he was smart. I like smart. On our first date we met for drinks. P actually had a small gift for me on our first meeting- a small box of chocolates. He waited for my arrival outside the bar in the freezing cold. I am thinking nice guy, good manners. We had some things in common, and he suggested during our date a change in location to go eat dinner. I thought that was really lovely. We had a great date, then planned on going out again. Our second date that we planned was a romantic movie.
On a side note, I know when you are on a date, one should not use one's cell phone. When my best friend texted me to check up, I didn't answer. She got really worried, which was sweet. She freaked out and started call all of our friends asking about me. When I finally texted her back three hours later, she was upset. This is the perfect reason why we have to check our cell phone. Now I prepare my dates and explain that she is checking on me, even if she isn't. I want my dates to know people are looking out for me- safety precaution.
Back to the professor, our romantic movie. We went to go see a good one, can't remember the name. I don't suggest a movie for a second date, it's too serious. A movie should be like a fifth date. During the movie he did not hold my hand, he just left it open on the arm rest between us. I felt this was a weird move. If someone wants to hold my hand, they should just ask.
Anyhow, after the movie the staff collected money for a charity, and he donated towards it, I actually was watching to see if he would. Nice touch. As he walked me to my car, he pulled a "gangster" move (one of my man-friends call it this, lol). Love that term. He grabbed my hand when I was about to open my car door. I giggled, which made me realize- no, not this guy. No chemistry. Felt really bad, but it happens.
I didn't answer his text the next day, I really should have explained to him that I was not interested. If this happens again, I will handle the situation better.
