Since then, I've come to peace with the idea that I don't really like fancy dinners like that. While I love trying up and coming restaurants, I don't particularly care for romantic places. I don't choke when I have to do public speaking; in fact I live for them. But take me on a romantic date and it's guaranteed to be disastrous!
So (finally getting to my point), I'm pleased to say that paired with my affectionate disfunctional self is a Mr. W. who is what I call a cuddle monster. He loves to be affectionate and needs more attention (both physical and emotional) than a baby. It was initially hard for both of us to cope-- he felt like I was too cold and I felt like he was way too much! Luckily, as time passed we etched rubbed off a bit onto each other! I'm less awkward and he's less needy! (and don't even try to deny you're needy!)
Instead of taking me to a dim lit restaurant with menus filled with things I can't pronounce (well more
Like things he can't pronounce since I did take four years of francais in high school!), we go to places like Good Frickin' Chicken!
You see, not the most romantic scenery but certainly interesting! And I need to throw this in-- it's definitely good frickin' chicken!
We ordered the pita and hummus and it was the best pita bread I've ever had!
The chicken was amazing. Super moist and flavorful and I loved their baked beans!
While I'm not saying I don't want to ever play dress up and go on a "romantic" date-- I'm just saying I much prefer fun and chill dates with good conversations and good food. In fact, it's at places like these that I realize just how compatible we are-- we can virtually have the best time ever at any place! I had some good frickin' chicken on a good frickin' date!
And plus, who says just because it's not super fancy I'm not dressed to impress?
