Halloween is an interesting time to meet someone new. Especially someone you may be romantically interested in.
Take my situation for example. I met Mac on halloween. He was dressed as an old man.
He had on a long curly grey wig, slippers (I believe he called them loafers actually), an old man hat and a pillow stuffed in his plaid shirt.
But he was charming. And very funny. We got to talking and by the end of the night he asked for my phone number.
He called me the next day and asked me out for dinner.
A few days later as I was getting ready for our date, I had a slight breakdown. I realized that HE was dressed as a dirty old man, no matter what he wore to our date, he was going to look better than he did when we met.
I on the other hand was dressed as a Greek Goddess... there's no topping that. So no matter what I wore on our date I wasn't going to look near as good as I did when we met.
The date was wonderful though. He's a real gentleman and quiet-funny. (isn't that the best type of funny?). We have gone out quite a few times since then and I'm taking things slowly and seeing where it will go.
