Nothing is better than a girl that can socialize. When I am in a relationship with a girl I often pay attention to how well they interact with others. Sara Borg and I first met up at the Cowboy Surfer Grill for some brunch. Immediately I noticed how well she interacted with the waitress and the other customers in the restaurant. We had some of the best service I have ever had at a restaurant because of the connection she established with the waitress. It was pretty impressive for a restaurant whose motto is “Come for the food, not for the service.” For the record their food was really good.
Have you ever been on a date and looked around at other couples? I have, and I do it a lot. Sara and I went horseback riding on our date, something I have wanted to do on a date for a long time (good job Sara). There was another random couple that went with us. I couldn’t help but notice that we were having better conversation and more fun than the other couple. Actually I don’t think the other couple said a word the whole hour and a half of the ride. Maybe that’s their thing (who am I to judge), but the only time they talked was when Sara talked to them.
One good thing about horseback riding is that there was plenty of time to talk. I found out a lot about Sara. She grew up in Utah, but has lived in New York and obviously California. Her family seems to work in the cosmetic field, which is good because I like a girl with some fashion sense. Sara herself does eyelash extensions. Yes guys, girls have a process that they make their eyelashes look naturally long. I’m not talking about those obvious ones we see sitting on top of their real ones either. It’s a great idea, but it makes me thankful to be a guy.
One thing we talked about was what qualities we like in other people we date. I talked about how I like adaptable girls. Meaning girls that know how to react in any situation they are in. Example: A girl that cheers at a sports game, dances at a dance, cuddles on a romantic date, and socializes at a party. She talked about how she likes playful guys. It was there I told myself, “if there is a date two we are doing something very playful!” Will there be a Date 2? Dun Dun Dun…
