A Lovely Late Date

I went on a lovely late date last night. His name is YZ (not a fake nickname, actually initials of his name). He's a 20-year-old student in USM, Penang who hails from KL and he's only been here for 2 months. I actually got to know about him from Zemien, who got to know him from Planet Romeo last week. Added him in Facebook only yesterday and the flirting kinda really hit it off. Long story short, we decided to go for supper yesterday after his rehearsal at around 10, but then it got cancelled so I picked him up at 9:30pm instead.

Took him for a rather long drive to Northam Beach Cafe. For some reason, I made a few wrong turns and we made huge U-turn through town before we made it there. I didn't really have much expectations coz after all, I had just known him for a day. And Zemien was keeping mum about him, wanting me to find out by myself! Dinner was rather ordinary, talked mostly about normal stuff and it went by rather quickly. It was sort of an ice-breaking where we got to know each other on the surface.

After dinner, we went over to Esplanade where we took at walk around Padang Kota Lama under the faint silhouetting moonlight and rather invasively bright, single spotlight lighting the field that night. The night was windless, not even the slightest breeze and it was rather warm. I felt rather guilty coz the poor boy was hauling his laptop bag all along, since he had just came from campus and had his laptop and books (which he left in the car) with him when I picked him up. Being the gentleman that I am (OBVIOUSLY!), I offered to carry it for him a few times, but he said it was fine for him. I noticed the municipal council has done a great refurbishing the whole place. All around the field was renovated to resemble a nice park, great place for walking or even jogging. As we walked, we talked more. I know that he was into me, it was quite obvious.

After we covered a round, I wanted to find somewhere to sit and talk even more. So, we found a nice seat right under a short tree that shielded most of the light around us, so it was a rather dark. It was there that we really opened up more and got to know each other on a deeper level. He shared about what he wanted and his directions in life and about what mattered most to him. We talked about our personal lives, some past relationships, our thoughts, our family and a bit about sex. As the night progressed, I noticed that he was sitting closer and closer. He already had his arms around my shoulders when we sat, but I didn't mind at all. As we continued to talk, he was becoming increasingly attractive to me. Seriously, it was like he was growing cuter by the moment or my hormones were intensifying, either one lah! At some points in our conversation, I couldn't stop looking at him and I SO wanted to kiss him. You know, the feeling when you just wanna grab the person's face with both hands, pull him towards you and proceed to suck the life out of him just plant a kiss on his lips. At some point, I commented that the single spotlight was kinda bright. In truth, I was REALLY hoping that it would be darker so that I could really sneak that kiss. After all, we were in a public place and there were a few Malay couples hanging around. There was one right behind us, and I was really hoping they would just scram.

Oiii, bulan puasa lah! Cepat balik tidur lah! Nanti I report you both maksiat or khalwat then you know! Cis, kacauness!

Aaaaanyways, I guess I gave away my intent and he was already leaning very close to me. At some point, our face was almost touching and we shared a moment of silence just enjoying the closeness. But, it was getting really late (post midnight) and I had work the next day. So, we headed back and I dropped him off in campus. He was rather cute with his strong hints of heading back to my place or me staying over at his hostel along the way, but his roommate was around.

Sigh...it was just one of those dates when you really wish the night wouldn't end and you just wanted it to go on and on. I really enjoyed spending time with him and I know he feels the same way. What really impressed me and attracted me to him was the level of maturity for his age, from the way he talks and behaves. He's also quite down-to-earth, which I really like as well. He can converse well and almost at the same level as I do, which is definitely a plus. It's been a while since I'm really able to make such a connection with someone. It's been quite a while since I had such a great date, simple as it was. I revealed to him earlier that I might be moving to SG just to clear the air but he was fine with that. Anyhow, I'm not gonna thinking too much about anything right now. Just going with the flow to see where this leads me to.

I KNOW my friends will say that I'm dating a younger guy again coz that has been the trend lately but I don't care. I just wanna be flexible and just go with the flow. I'll be going on a date with him again tonight, for dinner and a movie. Looking forward to seeing him again =)

What I can said is that, it is a very nice feeling as I have experienced it before with my previous partner and it was also the 1st time we went out. Enjoy the moment , Mark.
