Damn Sobriety, Week Two...



and no one has died...yet. Actually, I feel a whole lot better and have indeed lost some weight. I decided to follow the Suzanne Sommers diet (it really works, I've done it before) It hasn't really kicked in yet, but it should sometime this week.

On a more personal note, I had a date this weekend with a real live man. This was my first date as an out gay man and my must say, it was very nice. We went to a local Thai restaurant and had dinner underneath a Japanese maple while listening to jazz. Perfect evening. Could not have been better. We had a cold front come through and the temperature was in the low 70's and NO HUMIDITY which is UNHEARD of in Memphis this time of year.

I know it sounds old fashioned, but hew as a perfect gentleman (a true Southern quality). He told me that I am someone who he would like to get to know better. It really meant a lot to hear that. He said it was the perfect first date - very romantic. And, he ain't hard on the eye. Beautiful eyes and a smile that makes me melt (not like this guy pictured here, but damn close). I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. At this point, I have no expectations other than to have fun and get to know him better. All of this is still so new to me. Still feel like I haven't got my sea legs yet. However, it does wonders to the self-esteem when someone wants to be with you... More updates to come...
