Nice to e-meet you! That's internet for Hello. And that's also about as far as I got in planning what to say in this thing...but as a lover of spontaneity and the inability to edit my own words because that would mean actually having an awareness as to the nothingingness that I am about to ramble on about for far too long...I'm just going to go ahead and keep typing. Apparently...

Young Hearts Be Free Tonight

On Friday, I met a boy. 


It was not exactly a fairytale story...instead let's just say that alcohol and a dance club were involved. And while my friend Kadie was playing the tambourine up on stage with the band, I was being reminded what it felt like to press my body up against a boy and feel the flutter of my heart going. 

After a few hours of dancing together, he took my phone and entered his number into it which he later used to text me sweet incoherent text messages. Note that the incoherence was less due to the alcohol and more so do to the fact that he has just come to Canada from Switzerland. 


I know how to pick them, huh.

On Sunday, I was on my way to meet Alicia and Adam at Kits beach, but realized a little too late that I had no idea how to get their, and ended up at 2nd beach instead. I decided that I would just stay there as I had my journal to keep me busy. 

As I was relaxing on the bench, BOY texted me, asking what I was up to. It turned out that he too was at the beach and wanted to meet up. Although I was hardly 'date prepared', I agreed. Actually, Alicia told me that I am the one who has this whole "say yes" thing going so how dare I say no. 

After finally making him understand exactly where on the beach I was, I watched the many bridal photoshoots happening around me and waited for him to show up. 

I glanced over, and not remembering 100% exactly what he looked like, I was fairly sure I saw him, but who was he with?

He walked over, with a 65ish year old man wearing a bright yellow suit jacket, crooners hat, and hipster glasses (the man, not him). I smiled politely and the eccentric man said "Oh! You told me you were coming to meet a pretty girl, and this one just smiled at us so I think we've found her!". 

I, still being in shock and confusion, just kept smiling.

Before BOY even had a chance to say hello, the man was chatting me up a mile a minute, introducing himself, and telling BOY that he'd better treat me right. Then without pausing, he said goodbye and skipped off. 

BOY just started laughing. 

He explained that as he was walking over, this man came up to him and starting hitting on him. He was somewhat unsure of what exactly to say or do, but I think a little flattered at the same time as he had never been hit on by a gay man before.  

I told him that I had thought their was a chance he might not be alone because he had mentioned earlier that he was with friends, but that is definitely not what I had in mind.

So that was the start of my date with the foreign speaking BOY.

We walked along the ocean side before it started getting too cold, and then he took me to a movie. It was nice that we at least got to talk for a bit before the movie and I actually enjoyed his company more than I was expecting too. Considering his English is less than perfect, he was very charming and funny (or maybe he is charming and funny BECAUSE I can't understand half of what he says). We saw the A-Team, and after that was over he snuck us into the last 40minutes of Sex and the City as it was the only thing still playing at that time. 

I don't know why I always seem to get taken on high-school dates, but I kind of enjoy it. Sneaking into to the movie theater and making out in the back row is actually pretty fun. 


After the movie, he was pretty insistent on me going back to his place, and although I was tempted, I held my ground and went home alone. As much as he was not impressed with this, I think he kind of liked the idea that maybe I'm actually not thaaaaat easy. After all, he has been texting me quite a bit, and perhaps it's just to update me on the score of the Spain vs Switerland game, which I pretended to watch, but still!

Date 1, success!

    Spelling issues in my first comment, sorry! This sounds promising! Broken English is also completely attractive. I bet he was pleased with the Spain-Switzerland result...
