She was at The Royal first. I was a few minutes late as usual. As they say, fashionable late. I still didn’t really want to be the first.
So I got there and it was the usual little conversation, just talking about ourselves, each other and our interests. It took us a while to decide what kind of food we wanted because we were constantly distracted by conversations. Eventually we got to food and drink and we were both pretty hungry, so we shared things and got wine. We ate a lot.
In her Canadian accent. I could be wrong, I was a little confused. She was born here, moved to Canada, lived there for a while, and then came back. It was really interesting. She didn’t really look like a party. And she likes country music. It was a highlight. I was like “it’s different”, something I’m not a big fan of.
I really liked her very bright face. She was not quiet or shy. It was good to talk to someone. I find that a lot of people these days, especially the younger generation, find it very difficult to get into a conversation. So it’s nice to have a rich conversation all night. I really didn’t give at any stage.
I clearly felt that our interests did not coincide. We are two very different people. Sure, similar in terms of both beans and our personality, but it’s kind of hard to connect in some things. We can talk about it, but it will be difficult to contact. This is something that is very important to me, be it through music, pop culture or botanical stuff. None of this was there. I don’t think we’ll play Mario Kart together.
We’ve added each other to Facebook, and I’d definitely be interested to see her again in terms of more like a friendship, but probably no more at the dating level.

Before that, I pondered a lot of thoughts like, “Will we be together? What will happen? Will it be boring? ” and another is obvious: “Will he appear?”.
I felt like (like) my stomach started knotting as I expected. But as soon as I saw him, he had very beautiful eyes, we hugged, the stress literally went away.
I tried so hard not to look him in the eye. They are a beautiful green-brown color. But when you look into someone’s eyes, you are not always represented by color, but only by how they look. And it just fascinates you. I thought his eyes were just incredible. I don’t know what he was thinking and what he thought I was doing as if I was horrible and watching.
I couldn’t get rid of the feeling that I could have seen it somewhere before. At least somewhere to come across it. At night he said to me, “What if it’s someone I know?” He, obviously from Perth, lived here all his life. I don’t.
He noted that he has several jobs. He’s studying to be a primary school teacher, he’s a DJ on the weekends, and I think it was an auxiliary worker or a childcare worker? I definitely admired his work ethic.
I really enjoyed it and I feel like it could have lasted a lot longer if we both didn’t have things the next morning. It was just fun and easy.
He said he would soon be a DJ at The Court, so if I’m curious, I’m more than invited to go. So if my friend wants, we’ll go. We also added each other to social media. I think the ball is more on his side. The only reason I say this is because I sent a message to say thank you for a great night.
