Donna, You remind of the best first date I ever had and it lasted 12 hours. He was a widower, I met him on a computer site, we had talked on the phone a few times, he told me where he worked (county employee) so I could verify he was a safe man. He had carpentry skills and was telling me how to patch a hole in my ceiling because I had detached a lowered ceiling. I told him the best way to learn was to watch him. So he brought carpentry clothes, patched my celing, and I learned from him. We then cleaned up and went out to a nice dinner. I had contact w/a woman friend just in ase during this time.

I take a while to warm up to people; that's just how I am, self protective. The extra time allowed me to connect in a meaningful way w/a great guy. Happy memory.

I met a man on another, non-Catholic, dating site. We talked online a bit, met for coffee and now are scheduled to go to the movies tonight. This is my first date since my husband died in August 2011.



I don't feel any sparks at all, but he has said he's definitely interested in me. He keeps telling me how pretty I am. For some reason,. that makes me uncomfortable. It could be because I have never really considered myself pretty or maybe it's getting a compliment like that from someone who isn't my late husband?



We were supposed to go out last night but something came up. He was disappointed and I was relieved. I'm actually thinking of cancelling tonight.



Is it because I don't see a future for us (after such a short acquaintance and he isn't Catholic)? Could it be that I'm not ready yet? Should I go tonight and see how it goes? He wants to pick me up but I think I'm going to insist on meeting him. I'm very nervous about being alone in a car with him. I have no idea why. He seems perfectly pleasant.



Since I'm so anxious about this date, should I cancel or should I go through with it? Should I give it some time or tell him right away that I don't see us being anything more than friends, if that? HELP! Maybe I'm just nervous because this ismy first date in 35 years?
