Jessica, Jessica, Jessica. When I opened the door and saw Jessica standing there I immediately felt this sense of peace come over me. She had this huge bubbly personality and great smile and I went from the nerves of a blind date to the comfort of spending quality time with a quality person. It was the just the date that I was hoping for at the beginning of this crazy journey.
The date started out with the two of us going to a wonderful little taco shop in Beverly Hills called Benitos. Occasionally I like fancy dinners but I prefer hole-in-the-wall dining establishments - especially Mexican food in LA. It hit the spot. During our simple but fantastic dinner a little kid came up to us selling cookies so he could pay for a field trip to the San Diego Zoo. Jessica was so sweet to him and immediately made him feel confident when she asked him questions about where he was from and what he was going to do at the zoo. She didn't hesitate to pull out her wallet and donate to his cause. It wasn’t forced or fake - it was sincere and sweet because she truly has a heart of gold. I have always looked for that quality in my future wife - in a few moments I learned a lot about Jessica and know she is going to be an incredible mother. That is such an important quality in my eyes, because I want to feel confident that my wife will be able to provide a safe place for our children while I'm off working hard (hopefully as a dentist really soon).
After dinner we then went to Swingers where I had pre-arranged the bakery to set up 2 amazingly delicious cupcakes for us to enjoy before heading to our Improv show. One of the funniest things that I learned about Jessica while eating cupcakes is her love for Justin Beiber. She has a very bad case of Beiber fever. It's not that I'm a hater but I just don't have that kind of love in my heart for the Biebs. It isn't a deal breaker but she may have written me off because I just can't stand the kid.
At the LA Improv comedy club after dinner and dessert we enjoyed an amazing show by the performance group the Thrillionaires. They were spectacular and absolutely hilarious. They did a skit about Jessica and I on our first date and it was entertaining and a lot of fun. We got pulled up on stage and they let us have it. Jessica has such a great personality and lit up the room. Everyone around her instantly likes her. I had a very good time on the date and it will go down and one of the funniest and best dates I have been on in a long time.
I'm not as sure about a 2nd date with Jessica but I would feel like I am missing out if we can't develop a friendship after The Mormon Bachelor. I want to make sure I am very honest in my feelings about each of these women and I hope they are equally honest with me. At this point I see her as a friend. Having said that, maybe the reason things haven't worked out in my former relationships because I don't put friendship first. I know that Jessica and I would always have an amazing time and I know I would be lucky to have someone like her in my life.
