I celebrated my 25th a bit early last night with friends and some cousins. Smooth showed up. I was little nervous at first - once I saw him I realized I wasn't quite at the 'meet my friends and family' stage - but there he was, so I figured I'd better just go with it. Went to the washroom for a minute while he ordered his drink to check my make-up/breath/teeth, and stepped back out into the crowd ready to bring him over and introduce him to everyone. Couldn't find him - because he was already at the table, well past introductions and already encroaching onto conversation.
Got to the table, fixed myself a drink (tripple), found a nice spot to dance/chat in the corner, and rather nervously decided to throw caution to the wind.
We had a great night. Much more flirting and touching than on our previous date (he said I smelled amazing, love a guy who notices a good perfume). And he took well to my circle - a little too well actually considering it's only our second "date" and he's already got inside jokes with my best friend. I wanted to be a little put off by that, really I did, but he's just too cute to be mad at.
Ended the night with two kisses (on the cheek like the french, because that's how we do it here) and texted each other all the ride home. He asked to see me again before Thursday (my actual birthday). I said ok. That will make 3 dates... in about 8 days. Definitely need to take a breather.
... after the next one.
