Courtney was such a pleasant surprise for my 4th date and our date was planned to perfection. It was a beautiful and cool breezy day in Marina Del Rey which made for an interesting date with what she had planned. From the beginning of this whole process I was excited for the opportunity that I had to have Courtney take me out on a date. Our interactions through the casting process were funny and pleasant. She was one of the last girls I interviewed and to say the least I probably came off a little jerkish and done with the whole thing. On the date she didn’t let me forget that, and we laughed over it and over the fact that everything worked out the way it did.
Courtney took us down to the harbor where we laughingly and playfully enjoyed a nice little session of paddle boarding. I love anything that challenges me and I’ll just say paddle boarding was a little bit of a challenge for me. I looked awkward and shaky the entire time and nearly fell in a few times. Setting the awkwardness and shakiness aside the time and laughter Courtney and I enjoyed was beyond memorable. She was so funny and sassy, constantly making fun of me and my, let’s just say, unorthodox style of paddleboarding. The wind was pushing us all over the place and we discovered a little hiding spot for a group of local sea lions. In an extreme effort to impress my beautiful date I began to speak sea lion and surprinsingly enough got a response from them. They just told me that Courtney is a keeper and and a gem in so many different ways and I completely agree with their consensus. We laughed and enjoyed each others company for quite awhile out on the water. Courtney has such a beautiful countinence and she carries herself in such a confident manner. She planned a wonderful date.
After getting back to the dock we playfully skipped up the ramp and back to my car. The drive up to the restaurant was a blast. It was a beautiful day and driving up the 101 to Malibu with Courtney couldn’t have been more perfect. We soon found ourselves at Gladstones Fish House on the coast. The restaurant was so beautiful and was at a perfect location. We arrived at sunset and just enjoyed each others company as the sun was setting over the pacific. The food was only magnified by the presence of Courtney and the light and fun that she brought to the entire date.
It wasn’t easy saying goodnight to Courtney because I just wanted the date to continue. Courtney was an absolute breathe of fresh air and I am crossing my fingers and wishing on a star that she accepts a possible second date.
