{ 2nd Dates - Chris and Courtney }


In Courtney's Words:

When Chris asked me to come back out to LA for a second date, I was super excited to see him again.  He told me to wear workout clothes, which my first thought was great, he is trying to punish me  for making him look silly by going paddle boarding on our first date but still looked forward to the adventure.  Apparently our dates are themed, outside and windy and we are the physical activity duo.

When I saw him again, it was like picking up right where we left off, not awkward at all.  He told me we were heading to the Culver City Stairs, and were going eat lunch at the top.  I was nervous, what if the hike was hard? But to my surprise it was a pretty easy staircase to climb.  Chris and I had fun hiking it together we just made fun of each other and laughed A LOT! I was a tad slap happy which I warned Chris of because I drove all night from Arizona and didn’t catch a wink of sleep.   I gave him a pretty hard time joking with him but he wasn’t afraid to dish it right back. I loved that.  Right before we got to the top he told me he had a surprise.  (I hate surprises, I get so embarrassed but this was a welcomed surprise).  There we were walking up to the top and I saw the picnic all set up.  It was the most adorable thing EVER, and he is seriously such a sweetheart and it shows.  After our trek up the stairs we got to sit back and relax, cheers to a gorgeous view and good time with each other.  We shared funny stories during lunch and got to know each other in another way. 

As we finished up lunch and started to head back to the car, we put all our stuff in the bag and about half way there the straps snapped, it was funny but cute that he let me help him carry it the rest of the way.  When we got in the car he had me open a present to guess where our next stop was… I opened it to find nail polish and other nail accessories and my first thought was a PEDICURE? Wait, Chris was going with me to get a pedicure? That is exactly what we did, together.  He is such a man to go do that with me!  When we got to the nail place, I had him pick out the color for me.  He decided on a blue, he’s reason “that was the color you were wearing when I first met you”.   How cute is that.  I gave him a little attitude for being so sentimental but it was really thoughtful. The best part was when Chris was getting his feet scrubbed and he was laughing well it was more of a giggle because he was so ticklish on his feet it made me laugh. 

He took me back and we said our goodbyes.  I had such a good time with Chris, we laughed a lot, we’re complete goofs and you could tell we were both so much more comfortable around each other and the cameras.  I have really enjoyed getting to know Chris, and excited to see what the future holds for the both of us.

That was a fantastic story about how to take the top off of a Martinelli's bottle. I'm inspired by Chris' response to adversity.
