I ended up going to the 6 o'clock Mass this evening. I really only went that late because I have been too lazy to do laundry, and plus it's Sunday, so I kind of vegged out all day. It's what Sunday is for, I think. Anyway, I ended up going to the six o'clock Mass. I actually put on makeup, and curled my hair. I wasn't wearing anything special, but I did try to look nice. I didn't think anything of it, and I sat down in the pew. Well. This guy sat like, I don't know, maybe three feet away from me in another pew. From the moment he sat down, I was kind of drawn to him. I don't know why. He was attractive--he had blond hair and blue eyes--but that wasn't exactly it. I noticed right away that he came in by himself. Usually, especially at my parish, men are usually one of three things, 1.) married with kids, 2.) discerning the priesthood, or 3.) too young for me. Yes, mischa8, you can laugh at me now. lol That's the way it is. I don't usually find someone who I think is attractive that is actually single and seemingly available. I don't normally try to look for anyone, but when you are trying to find someone who actually cares about his faith, Catholic, and single, I think Church is the best place to start. I'm not there to pick up guys, or shouldn't be, but that doesn't mean I don't notice. lol I tried my absolute best not to just start staring at him. I kept making quick glances, well as quick as I could, from the corner of my eye, so I could size him up, and see what I thought of him. When the offetory rite came along, the collection plate, I kind of had to look at him directly. I could look at him directly, I should say. lol He was cute. rofl And I have to say that he sang every song, like he knew the words, and prayed every prayer like he really meant it. I think that's what did it for me. lol His singing voice was very good, not out of tune and deep. I think he heard my singing voice as well. I don't like to say much, but some people, complete strangers, have told me, at Mass, that I have a good voice. I don't know if that's true or not, and I don't like to just assume it's true, but that's what people tell me. The kids who sat in front of me turned around when I started singing, and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but I assume he heard my voice. I wasn't trying to sing louder so he could hear me either. hahaha I think he did though. When the 'sign of peace' came around, he made an obvious gesture to me, and he had a firm handshake, and looked me directly in my eyes. It was kind of cool. Maybe that's just the way he does it. I don't know, he seemed like he was really interested in being there, which is always a plus to me. Oh, and when Mass was over, he left when I left, I don't know how to explain that, but it was like he was waiting for me to get up and walk out, or something. Maybe I am seeing things I don't know. Then, as I walked out, and I have to say there are like five or six different doors to leave in the front vestibule, he was standing directly behind me. It was really cool. lol No, he didn't say anything to me, but he made an impression on me, and it felt, but who knows, that he was trying to get up the courage to say something to me, but didn't, yet. I'm so gonna go to the six o'clock Mass next week, and see what happens. rofl

Wow, cool! I don't want to think that far ahead. A "maybe we should get coffee" would be good enough for me. hahaha
