The food was delicious.
We interacted like we'd always had (the best friends that we were).
Things were good.
He took me back to the place I was living at the time for school and we watched In the Land of Women.
We didn't kiss.
That night was a turning point. A chance to see Matt as something so much more than just a best friend--yet at the same time realizing that maybe it is the best friend you want to be with after all.
Matt went home;
And then to the doctors the following day where he was given an antibiotic for a sinus infection.
I like to think he cared enough about that first date that he never once made mention of how sick he was feeling. He fully intended on stealing my heart that night.
It was not fully stolen until February... but I'll never forget that first date.
(I actually don't have pictures from our first date. Boo.)
