Bad First Dates Can Still Lead To Love Part 3

I left Boyfriend hanging. And I left you all hanging too which some people were not happy about. So let me tell you how we ended up together.

At the end of our first date, I got out of the car without a hug or awkward kiss on the cheek.

I knew I'd blown my chance, I just knew it.  So, I did something very unlike me and texted him, "I had fun tonight, thank you." I'm a little traditional in that I want the guy to do the calling, the texting, the making the first move.

I can't remember if he texted back or not, I think he might have said something like, "You're Welcome." But it's entirely possible he went to bed before even receiving my text. Remember, he gets up at 4am 4:30am.

A week went by and I didn't hear from him. I saw him at work occasionally, but I did my best to seem like I didn't care. I blew my chance.

I'm not used to guys not contacting me right away. I guess the guys I've dated in the past have come on a little strong and chased me right away. I was dying over here!

Even the co-worker who set us up hadn't said anything to me, she didn't even ask how it went! But I knew she'd talked to him about it, there's no way she didn't. I somehow brought it up and said I'd go out with him again. She didn't say much other than I got out of the car quickly so he thought I wasn't interested. I explained to her why I got out of the car so quickly and awkwardly - I had to pee.

She died of laughter.

But...she must have said something to him because a few days later, I randomly got a text from him. It was Christmas time and I was baking cookies. He was putting up Christmas lights (I love that a guy who lived alone still put up lights!) He said we should bake cookies.

So we did.

And then a few years later we baked babies.


  1. I love how you ended it with "few years later we baked babies."
    Cute story!

  2. OMG, I'm dying about baking babies. Hilarious!

  3. LMAO!!! When David and I discuss... bedroom activities... we call it baking cookies. LOL! One day we were talking about baking cookies that night and Ariel goes "You guys are so mean, you eat all the cookies and don't save any for me!" LMAO!!!! Poor kid, loves her cookies! :)

  4. Soooooooo cute. :) Love the ending to this story. And some mighty adorable babies you baked!
