That is fantastic. I am so sorry to read about your past relationship. But the best word in that is WAS . You are right to feel that you should be shown nothing but respect and love. And we all know that it was his loss!!! I hope this man, and any other that would be lucky enough to have the privlege of taking you out on a date, realizes just how special you are. And very smart tip on looking at the menu in advance. I wouldn't have thought of that. Congrats on not only a fantastic date, but a fantastic attitude.
