Next thing I knew...

"Heidi asked me last night what my type was so that she could be on the lookout for people to set me up with," I told Jess as we got out of the car and walked towards one of our favorite spots last night. "But you know, I just really don't want to date anyone right now. I'm not in the mood to get caught up in another emotional drama."

"I hear that," she said as we swung the door open and walked towards the bar.

"Excuse me," I said a few minutes later to the two guys who I was leaning in between to order my drink. Next thing I knew...

"Rees, right?" the very handsome one on the left said.

"Oh, B! Hi!" I said, attempting casual. Someone I'd met a few times through the wine scene here in Richmond, recently single, and so good looking that he has always made me nervous.

We spent the next hour talking to him and his friend, and having a great time.

Next thing I knew, they accepted our invitation to come with us to the next destination - a bar nearby to hear a friend's band play. We talked more than we listened.

Next thing I knew, we were all doing an impromptu late night at his house, sipping on Grand Cru Champagne and dancing in the living room.

He had asked me earlier why I liked wine. Watching his friend twirl my friend around and then lead her into a low dip, I turned to him.

"This is why I like wine," I said. "Because right now is what it's all about. New friends sharing a special bottle, dancing, laughing, having a great time. This is the most important thing in the world. This is life."

Next thing I knew, he was softly kissing me.

Oh dear god, I'm jealous.
