Finger Lickin' Good

I'm as girly as girly gets-- there's no such thing as too pink or too sparkly in my world. With that said, what I'm about to reveal is something that often comes as a surprise to most people-- I'm romantically super awkward. It's almost like I'm the Napoleon Dynamite of affection. Let me give you a true anecdote. One time a boy took me on a fancy date to a fancy restaurant where you have to wear a dress. I felt so awkward and out of place that I started to sweat uncontrollably. I was wearing super high heels and my sweaty foot (yuck!) slipped which caused me to fall while walking on an uphill street in San Francisco. Fail x a billion. The sad part of this story? I wasn't on a first date! It was a dinner with an ex I've dated for years! I swear I'm usually much more poised and charming...

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?

I found the comment button :D
I get intimidated by fancy resturaunts because everyone there look so posh as though they would judge me for tiny mistakes like using the wrong cutlery.

Love the last line!

glad to hear that I'm not the only one who feels that way!
