Part 3 - What I should have done differently
I consider our visit successful, and partly because we were both clear about what we wanted and interested in pleasing each other, we both felt safe and understood, and we were both honest, open and giving with each other. The Valentine's Day pampering was truly exquisite and so was the intimacy. Still, there are things I would do differently next time and would advise others to do differently.
First, even if you trust your date, a room to yourself is important. Even though I liked him a lot and trusted him, I felt uncomfortable having no real privacy for dressing & primping, making phone calls, and just calming my first-time jitters, and since no one can be "on" and conversant at all times, there were more awkward and nervous moments than there had to be.
Second, I wouldn't advise getting into a new date's car at the airport. I initially said I would arrive at the hotel by taxi, but then I decided it would be fine for him to pick me up. I trusted my instincts about him, but they could have been wrong. It's safer and easy enough to just use a taxi until you've spent some time together.
Finally, I'm not totally at peace with my own decision to blow off my material needs. My date is used to spoiling his Babe and he offered a shopping trip (twice) and I chose playing with him and being outside instead. I can't say I regret it. It was Valentine's Day. He was sexy and fun to be with and our walk by the lake was lovely. But if I have a similar experience again, I'll honor my needs better, because he would have been happy to meet them.
Beyond those few things, which are all about my own decisions and not about him, it was a perfect first visit. He was respectful, considerate and honorable in his behavior toward me; he was a good communicator, willing to please and fun to talk to; he is smart, good looking and incredibly sexy.
What more could anyone want in a Daddy for Valentine's Day?
P.S. Don't even ask!
I'll post a more explicit "His Version" in the future.
