Hello lovely followers 🙂 So the lockdowns really did a number on my dating life, as many of you can relate. I don’t think I have had a date in what feels like forever… Until now!!
The classic online meeting.. I know how cliche, but hey, how else am I supposed to meet someone. We met on one of the many dating apps (my secret as to which) and talked for a week or so before deciding to get together in person.
A beautiful day in the beautiful city of Bath was where we decided on. Bath has become a Green zone so driving into the city is a big no-no, so he came in from Bristol on the train and I planned to get the train in from my neck of the woods.. Note to self, CHECK THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT BEFORE YOUR LEAVING TIME… An hour before we were due to meet up I checked the train schedule to find out that there were no trains and only bus replacement buses… OMG!!! The only one I could get would get me there so late he probably would have gone home. I decided to drive in instead but had to take my mum to an afternoon gig in Bradford on Avon first. This got me into Bath an hour and a half late for the date. I was mortified. Nothing quite like being that late for one’s first date 😳😣.
Thankfully he was forgiving and so understanding. We went for a late lunch at a Thai restaurant and walked around the city and found our way to Queen’s square and sat in the sunshine and talked for ages.
All in all a truly lovely 1st date and the 2nd one is already on the calendar (more on that in another post.
I am always looking for COVID safe date ideas so please give me some inspiration ideas because I am keeping my fingers for this one because he is really lovely (and somewhat good looking😉).
I hope you have enjoyed my musings about my first post lockdown date and fingers crossed on the 2nd one 🙂
Until next time…
