well, i met a new lady friend during the pride bowling event and we exchanged numbers and kept in touch; and after chatting and trading e-mails for a while, we decided to get together for supper tonight. we fittingly decided to cash in a restaurant gift certificate, that i had won at the bowling event. We chatted for several hours, then moved onto a coffee shop and chatted some more. she and i seem to have really hit it off. We didn't officially call it a date, but it sort of was a date.. lol Not really sure where this is heading, but there definitely seems to be some compatibility. You could say that this has lifted my spirits even more than they already have been as of late. A great way to end off what was a great week.
