Thank Goodness She Said “Yes” the Second Time


Years ago, I asked a girl out on a date. She politely declined. I figured we could still be cool and decided to move on.

A little time later, we both started attending the same weekly dinner party. Over a few months, we got to know each other better. I debated for a long time if I should ask her out again. I thought, if I ask her again and she says no, then that’ll be awkward and I know it won’t be cool this time.

Eventually, I got over my nerves and asked her out again. This time she said yes. That date was May 28th, 1998.

Happy 20th Anniversary of our First Date, K.. Thank you for saying “yes” the second time.
