Friday I told you I was going to start writing about James and myself, and I would be posting every Sunday. I wanted to start from the very beginning, and that starts with waffles. You will need to know why we love waffles the way we do. But, it’s not just waffles that we love. We love Waffle House.
Why We Love Waffles – It Starts With Coffee
I’ll take you back before the coffee to start, I don’t remember who reached out to who. James and I started to talk on one of the dating apps. We talked for a couple of weeks getting to know each other, and added one another on social media. James was a true gentleman in the fact that he never once attempted to start something sexual. He really was trying to get to know me. I’ll say it now, it was a breath of fresh air to start to get to know him.
We had made plans to meet at the Waffle House near my house for a coffee date. I arrived first and waited in my car for a few minutes, then went into the restaurant to wait for him. I always seem to be early and wanted to make sure I was really meeting who I had been talking to. When he got there we sat down and talked. Enjoyed our coffee and just talked. When it was time for me to go home, we sat outside and talked for a few more minutes while we both smoked a cigarette. Then something happened to confuse me. I really thought he was about to try and kiss me when we hugged goodbye, but he didn’t. I thought that the coffee date had gone extremely well and we made plans to see each other again, so I was really confused. Later when I asked him about it, I found out he was just being a gentleman again.
Since our first date, we have been back a handful of times. One of the employees has even recognized us and mentioned it to us. So Waffle House is kinda special to us. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I have met the man that I love there (at least in person) and we do enjoy their food too.
