I wasn't going to run away from this one. I had gotten myself into this so that I could find a companion, not to break hearts. I still felt really bad about the first girl, and standing her up.
I was determined not to puss out on this next one. I got ready and still had plenty of time, but felt it might have been nice to be the first one at the table. With that in mind, and feeling a little more confident, I left and got to the restaurant early.
