When I sent Shelly the menu of the Russian restaurant, we established that she would come to my house on our date night and from there I would drive us.
On the afternoon of our date, I texted Shelly that I was leaving the office and confirmed she would meet me at my house. She texted back, “Yes, my workshop just ended and I’ll be there somewhere between 5 and 6pm.”
I’ve got a bit of a neat freak issue which stems from my OCD – or obsessive compulsive disorder. I don’t personally consider it a disorder but a gift for keeping my house organized and free of clutter.
Jackie advised, “You shouldn’t let Shelly go to your house. At least not yet as she’ll take one look and bolt.” Lois added, “You have to ease her into your overly neat freakiness of your house!”
Now Jackie and Lois have been to my house several times and haven’t said not to bring a date there. There’s no adrenaline rush like finding out your house is a prime detour zone for the person you’re dating.
I asked shockingly, “What? An old gay guy! Really? That’s not the look I was going for.” We both laughed.
I shooked my head and asked, “Why haven’t either of you said anything before? It’s too late now as Shelly will be at my house tonight.”
Jackie replied, “It didn’t occur to me until now. But it’ll be fine.” Lois also reaffirmed, “It’ll be fine! Everything will be just fine.”
