After my wonderful first date with the lovely Kimiko, I really wanted to see her again. I was going to try to set something up for a lunch this week. I also sent her a link to this great documentary about the Asian Bank, “Abacus: Small Enough Too Jail.” (If you’ve been following this blog you’ll know that I saw that film in the theater with Ambria.)
I’m texting her.
“Thank you! I’m still at work! How are you?”
“I’m at the salon working too! I’ve been thinking about our fun date last night!”
“Another busy day, right?
“Not too busy here tonight. Rain is keeping people away.”
“Would you still be up for lunch on Thursday?”
“Hey, I’m done work now. Thursday I have a doctor’s appointment at 2pm. What time is good for you?”
“Shall we do 11 or 11:30? What works best for you?”
“My doctor’s office is in Moorestown. Quite far away from the city. You have to work Thursday?
“3 to 8pm. Looking at a property at 10am.”
“Weekend better for you?”
“I guess so.”
“Aww! Saturday after 5 or Sunday after 4pm? Movies? Or I could do a Zip Car and come to Jersey. Or I could hop on Patco and we could dine in Haddonfield or Collingswood.”
“Great! We can talk later.”
The week passes and so does the weekend. I don’t hear from her at all. I really like Kimiko and want to hang out with her again. (And kiss her again!) My schedule just really sucks right now. I decide to make another attempt.
“Hi Kimiko. Have you lost interest?”
“You didn’t text me last week?!”
“I wanted to after I came up with a few solutions on how we could meet and I didn’t hear from you for the weekend. Maybe it was a misunderstanding.”
“You know what, it’s a misunderstanding, because I didn’t hear from you again, I thought you went on another date.”
“No. Like I said I have been working a lot lately. I like you and I thought our first date went really well.”
“Thank you. Yea, I had a good time too.”
“So you’re still interested in getting to know me and you’d like to go out again.”
“Things have been busy getting this business off the ground. But I want to stay in touch with you and find ways to spend time with you whenever we can!”
“Yes! Sounds good! Because this weekend I’m going to New York for a baby shower.”
“Sounds good. I’m so glad we chatted tonight. I feel so much better and I hope you do too, Kimiko.”
“Indeed. You know sometimes online dating just ends for no reason.”
“I guess, but I think we have a good connection.”
“Awesome. “Well have fun at the shower up in New York. We’ll chat again soon!”
“Thank you, Kimiko.”
So I’ll leave it there for now. Hopefully once I get through the next week, I should have some free time to see her. I don’t want her to get away, but I fear that if I wait too long she will.
