Opinion: I went on my first date with my crush in a nightdress


**This is a work of nonfiction based on actual events that I have experienced firsthand; used with permission.

I went on my first date with my crush in a nightdress, but she didn’t judge me based on my clothes.

No awkwardness or insecurity ruined so many a first date. I know this because I now can work through problems in the most efficient way, which is maybe why there was plenty of time for her to share some romantic anecdotes and dance us out of there before dawn.

Afterward, when I was contemplating how I could have made the night more tolerable, she told me that if I wanted to impress her, there were things I should look at instead of my clothes.

For instance, my Future job (she did not judge me), my aspirations (I made a good first impression), my future goals (we can work together if we’re both intelligent), and yes, even the fact that I like blue.

I am grateful for her advice, and I admit I’m not the best-dressed guy in the world. But who cares?

Being stylish can only get you so far. Your character is what counts, and with that in mind, it is easy for me to find a good girlfriend who will become my best friend because I was taught that if you find love today, then your business today becomes all about love tomorrow.

Okay, enough of my rambling.

My love for her cannot be measured with numbers or charts, or equations. It is not something I can define because it is pure in its very essence. I like her personality, her heart, the way she smiles, the way she loves, and I find myself smiling back.

I do not know what she thinks of me yet. The night we met was one of those nights where I couldn’t tell if I was dreaming or not.

It has been a while since my last dream ended as abruptly as it began. For now, I am content to be around her and enjoy a nice feeling in my heart.

I have real hope that she will be my soulmate. If she is, then I am in the right place at the right time, and that’s why I feel very lucky.

I hope all this will go as smoothly as my first date with her because if it does not, then maybe it is not meant to be. At least, in this case, I know that whatever happens will be for the best, and we will grow old together happily ever after.
