Date 4 was pleasant. Dinner and coffee and then home. He did squeeze my hand today (and I squeezed back) although he refrained from a kiss on the subway which is a good thing. I'm a major prude when it comes to public displays and that would have made me very uncomfortable.

Date 5 is likely to involve sushi and Conan the Barbarian. His favourite guy moovie. Perhaps Thursday evening. This whole getting to know someone before I sleep with him is quite nice. I think I might actually like him as a person! Granted, I need a martini to relax but I think that's just me. He said that he was surprised how quickly things had proceeded. Four dates in three weeks. That usually he doesn't get past date 2. I laughed and told him that I've had four dates in four days but it never ended up well. So "slow" is good.

He also mentioned that his father is a very strict RC. Sigh. I refuse to borrow trouble but it's worth bearing in mind that there is a potentially huge hurdle coming up. I've been here before. Twice. Three times if you count the Muslim guy I dated briefly and misguidedly. In my late teens. I know this is different but I'm not sure I want my children to be baptized. If I even want to have children.

Work-wise, tomorrow is going to be painful. I have to be up at 6 and in the car by 6.30 but my stomach is killing me. Probably stress and lack of sleep. I got home at 11 and then got on the phone to Baby to coordinate our schedules and find out when I could see Captain W. By the time I checked my email it was almost 12. I got an email from the project manager asking me to review and summarize some documents. Hence the late night posting.

I hope my stomach cooperates in the morning. Okay, I know it won't. I'd better get up a half hour early to deal with agonizing cramps, nausea and cold sweats. Yay.

BEWARE the sushi date! At least, avoid the eel rolls, especially if the nausea doesn't abate.

Slow is good. Needing a Martini to relax is ...well, less good. And Conan? He better be worth it to put yourself through that sort of pain and misery.

Asshat, you're too funny. Evil, but funny.

Alexandreena (what do people call you for short?), as for the martini, yes, I agree. I'm hoping it's actually a sign of a good thing. That perhaps my being *that* nervous around him is a positive sign that my heart hasn't decayed into a gnarled lump of coal. I just wish he would make a move. Maybe it's undispersed first kiss tension.
