[#pianoplaying Alicia Keys – Like You’ll Never See Me Again]

Yes readers, my iPod is NOT on repeat for once as I write this Lyfes Lyrics post. J (Date 1 of part of my mentor’s contract) is playing the piano as I lye on this piano, wearing his french cuff shirt, all while blogging. Amazing how the scent of his shirt is Gucci Guilty for Men. I only know that because I took a whif of it in the department store before I purchased my bottle of the Gucci Guilty for Women.

I couldn’t have imagined a better dating experience with a better man. What I had actually imagined was a disastrous night ahead of boring conversation, no real chemistry and heading to bed waaaay earlier than most my nights. Boy was I wrong (see my previous post).

Can a date last 48+ hours? Had anyone asked me that before I met J I would’ve replied with a “hell to the no”, but it seems like I’m in that predicament now. What was supposed to be just a date for the night has now turned into a date that started last night and will continue on through today as well as tomorrow quite possibly.

In one of my previous posts I discussed throwing out my old list of things that hindered my ability to open up to someone. I created a new and short list of things I had to do to encourage myself to open up more when meeting someone for the first time. I’m proud of myself. Opening up to J and letting him into my space was extremely difficult, yet rewarding.

Yesterday was the beginning of many “firsts” for me. There’s a first time for everything and this would be the night I took my own advice and used my new list!

It was the first time I had gone on a blind date, let alone signed a contract to agree to go on FOUR (my mentor knows me all too well. When I sign contracts, I am better at delivering results).

I agreed to a glass of red wine during dinner (I never drink around strangers, only around people I love and trust. If I get sick, I want to know that the person I’m with takes good care of me and not advantage of me).

I allowed J to gently touch me as we ate dinner as long as he was gentle, genuine and tasteful with how he touched me (I am usually annoyed by public diplays of affection couples show each other, but J has a way of gracefully making me feel heavenly and electric with his touch and we’re not even in a sexual setting).

As I allowed J to kiss me, he allowed me to kiss him back. (I never kiss on the first date because of the perception men have on women who kiss or have sex on the first date. So I went with it. I don’t care what people think of me now).

J was kind enough to ask if he could take an important call in the middle of dinner and I was fine with that (This is actually a pet peeve of mine, but because he was considerate and thoughtful enough to ask if I minded, I didn’t mind. I respected him for the gesture).

He didn’t want to leave me when he dropped me off. He sat there and gentlemanly watched me walk into the building to make sure I got in safe. I turned and stood there with my hand pressed against the glass wall, struggling with trying to wave goodbye (I hate farewells). So I raised my phone to signal him to pick up his phone to read my text. I texted: park in the overnight parking please. I’ll wait here for you. (There wasn’t an awkward moment of silence all night until that moment, the moment right before I decided to invite him to stay the night. Life’s too short, right?).

I blogged while he read over my shoulder and gently kissed me in silence as he awaited for my full attention (I hate when people read over my shoulder. I hate when people read my rough drafts. I prefer them to read my final drafts of work. In addition to those few pet peeves, I’ve been distracted by many things when blogging, such as twitter, Facebook and texting, but kisses? This was definitely a first of many I’ll NEVER forget).

J was happy with just holding me and playing with my hair as I fell asleep in his embrace. I’m proud of myself for not giving into my desires and temptations. But I’m even more grateful J respected me enough to not give into his own desires and temptations (What guy doesn’t pounce on a woman after the romantic night we just had? Apparently J is the only man I know that was and is successful at this feat).

I cooked breakfast for him (I enjoy cooking and I cook with love. I don’t cook for just anyone unless I am grateful, happy and in love. I am definitely grateful and happy, but this is too early to tell whether I am the latter).

J read all my blog posts from my phone as well as my private notes and texts. He even romantically changed my passcode and told me he changed it to the number of kisses he’d like from me and he’d like to give me by the end of the day: 9999 (most people get ansy and fidgety when someone else has their phone in their possession. I don’t, but some of my most private thoughts are in my notes and texts to my friends on my phone. I told him he could read whatever he wanted and he didn’t judge me on anything he read).

I’m lying on this grand piano blogging as he plays and sings to me and I’ve stopped a few times to harmonize with him (He’s classically trained and plays the same instruments I do, but he also plays the sax and trumpet. I think I just gave him a heart attack because when I started harmonizing he stopped playing to stare at me. I guess I should’ve told him I sing too! lol).

I sing for the people I love and only share my gift when I’m inspired (I’ve known J less than 24 hours and my wall has completely come down. So we’re sharing our gifts and talents this morning. It’s magical!).

Yesterday was the beginning of the first of many firsts. Today I’m basking in a joyous day of pure bliss all while playing the kissing game. At some point I’ll have to kiss him like he’ll never see me again because I am anticipating that moment will come. But for now, I’m taking this experience one kiss at a time.

Like You’ll Never See Me Again performed by Alicia Keys

If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was I everything that you were looking for?

If I couldn’t feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I’d be wishing you were here
To be everything that I’ve been looking for

I don’t want to forget the present is a gift
And I don’t want to take for granted
The time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day here’s not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again

Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again
Oh oh oh

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it?
That it’s everything that we are looking for

When I wake up in the morning
And you’re beside me
I’m so thankful that I found
Everything that I’ve been looking for

I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted
The time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day here’s not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Can you do that for me baby?

Every time you touch me
See we don’t really know
Touch me like this is the last time
See everyday we never know

Promise that you’ll love me
I want you to promise me
Love me like you’ll never see me again
Like you’ll never see me again

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
