47. June 2011: Brian #3

How did you meet? online

Name: Brian (no more, i promise)

Height: 5'8"

Age: 32

Occupation: law

Good quotes from date:  Nothing stands out except that he said "fuck" or "fucken" in most of his sentences. I'm not sure why. Nerves maybe? He otherwise doesn't seem like the type of guy that just throws that around.

Why is he still single? Nice guy, very chatty, as in you're talking and then he talks over you. I steered most of this conversation with questions.

Did he pay for the date? yes, two drinks. Meanwhile it's glaringly obvious that i'm a one drink wonder on weeknights. Hangover at work? Not cool. I'm old and I am going to start embracing this.   

Did he contact you after the date? not sure if he will. It was one of those during the hug "we should hang out again" goodbyes.

How many dates did you go on? 1

Would you recommend to a friend? yes


He is smart and gentlemanly. I didn't feel that chemistry thing and conversation was way too centered around work, but that's because we work on similar issues. While he was in the bathroom, i whipped our Connect Four from the game shelf at the bar and challenged him. Board games on first dates are amazing. They break the ice and you can really get a sense of a person's playfulness. Maybe i should bring a travel game in my bag? He beat me best of five. I didn't love that.
