My dad once gave me some dating advise. He said, “Rick don’t worry if your relationship feels like ones of the past. Every relationship has its own personality.” Along those lines I also once had a friend explain to me to not look necessarily for great traits in a girl, but to more look for how a girl makes you feel. If you love the way the make you feel then go after that one. Going out with Melissa I feel a certain way that I have never felt when dating another girl. Our relationship has a much different feel than I am used to. Normally I with girls I feel funny or relaxed with. However, with Melissa I feel cool. She has a very composed nature to her that is very appealing. When I’m with her it brings out a side I have not accustomed to but never-the-less enjoy.
We started off our evening on a slightly rough note. Most of the morning we spent trying to come up with an idea because our original plans that had fallen through. In fact this was the second time our plans had fallen through since the Sunday before. On top of that my dinner plans had just failed about an hour before then date. Luckily we decided to spend time at the Irvine Spectrum and do some random things there. Then after our activity go out to one of the many dinner places there.
Once we got to the Irvine spectrum we went to a little pedicure shop there and decided to get us some pedicures. It was going to be another night full of new experiences for me with Melissa. We went in and I immediately noticed that the YouTube video about these pedicure shops is completely true. It was funny but I felt like the ladies working on my toes were talking bad about me in another language. I’m glad I got to experience the full effect of getting a pedicure. I must say my toes have never looked so good. I think Melissa enjoyed my reaction to the whole situation. Something tells me though, that I won’t be going back anytime soon.
Next stop at the Irvine Spectrum was a Mexican restaurant called Javier’s. Very good food and to make it even better I got to practice some of my Spanish with the waiter. He was from Mexico City where I had served my mission. To compliment our meal our last stop of the night was at this Boba shop nearby, but not at the Spectrum. It was a cool little place that was hoppin’ even on a weeknight. We got our drinks and they were pretty tasty.
I couldn’t have asked for a better night especially with such a hard time planning it in the first place. My time with Melissa felt cool once again. It was short but I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to see if there is anything more for me and Melissa.
