My Perfect Day

Here in the Baltimore area, the weather was SPECTACULAR this past weekend! Absolutely beautiful. Mr. Construction and I decided to have a little picnic in the park. I went to the store and gathered all of the materials we would need. Brought them home and arranged them nicely in a basket. Mr. Construction arrived and we were on our way.

We found the most perfect spot for a picnic and set up camp there. I was charged with bringing the music and cd player as well so we had some awesome music.

The whole experience was wonderful. We connected on a level we hadn’t up to that point.

I’ve come to realize that he is a very cautious guy. He is slow and meticulous and takes his time as not to get hurt. I can understand and respect that. Let me tell you though that the way this man looks at me, the way he kisses me and the way he touches me tells me far more then his words ever could.

He is falling for me and he is trying really hard to slow it down but he can not. He constantly tells me he really likes me. He asks me numerous relationship questions trying gauge how I conduct myself and react to my partner when I’m in a relationship. He tells me all the time how he wants to spend so much more time with me. He even asked me last night if I would like to meet his family one of these days of course after telling me once again how much he enjoyed our time together at the picnic.

Yep….this guy has been bitten. No denying that. I’m just sitting back and enjoying this.

The Manager is still around but I’m not sure for how long. Even though Mr. Construction and I are getting closer, The Manager just doesn’t seem to be in a place right now in his life where he can devote time to a relationship. I see that so clearly now. I am thinking I need to let him go really soon.

I’m leery about that because I have had many “false starts”. You all know what I mean…..things are wonderfully delicious in the beginning of a budding relationship. You both are bringing your best representative to the party and you start to think this could be the one then 4 months later you are let down and disappointed when the “real” person decides to show up.

The Analyst still calls. He got a new job which I am really glad for him. His previous job really took him for a loop which was a huge problem between us. I hope he finds happiness soon.

I’m not sure where this ride will lead me too but I will just sit back and enjoy it.

Sounds like some confusion going on in my life LOL

Sometimes men that are cautious annoy me cause it's like they are placing you in a group with the female that made them cautious..but you gotta respect him taking his time to make sure it's right before stepping into it...plus actions with men tend to be louder than words...


AWWW i love new beginnings..and i need to go on a picnic...gotta enjoy the nice weather while it's here.

May you two have plenty more good times.

That's the best thing you can do. Eventually they will eliminate themselves. Cream always rises to the top.

Wow! It wasn't humid in Baltimore this weekend? That's a change. My parents did mention about having a nice day out on the boat this weekend. They usually go out around the Bay Bridge.

Anyway, I love your perfect day! So sweet! I've NEVER been on a picnic with a guy. I should try that sometime.

It sounds like he's REALLY into you. I hate it when guys try to be all cautious - but it's probably the smart thing to do. I always want to rush into everything immediately and then it never works out.

I'm in a similar place as you with a new guy and I'm loving every moment of it. I just hope the "jerk" doesn't show up in 4 months too.

I love these posts because they give me a chance to live vicariously through you.

Enjoy yourself, Mr. Construction sounds like a good guy.

I hope the park you had your picnic in was Patterson Park. Mostly to uphold the hilarious image I have in my head of two people trying to enjoy a romantic picnic while there are 35 unorganized soccer games going on.

Oh heck yeah on the false starts, that's why it's sooo important to take your time and pay attention, but sounds like things are going pretty good...so I hope for the best.
