I had a wonderful evening last night with Ben. We went to a cookout at a church member's house. Then we went to see The Wiz at an outdoor amphitheater. It was really good!
Afterwards we came back to my house to start discussing the book we started reading together, Love and Respect. We also started 101 Questions to Ask Before Getting Engaged. I told him how hard it was for me to open up to people. I take a really long time to form deep friendships. For example, I worked at a school for five and a half years, and I had three really close friends. While I was nice to everyone, I would only tell personal things to those three people. He has commented that I make friends so easily in new settings. What I keep forgetting to tell him is that if you listen in on the conversation, 95% of it will be me asking questions about the other person's interests, etc. I only tell very general things about myself. This man is worth the investment of getting to know (and in turn me revealing personal things about myself), and I'm going to work on being more open about big questions.
Time to go to ZUMBA class. I can't wait to report back on how I like it. I really hope it lives up to the hype that I've heard about it.
