Occupation: writer/musician but has a real day job
Good quotes from date:
Him: "I really need to get a bike, but I can't seem to find the right one."
Me: "I'm sure there are some bikes out there..."
Him: "Nope. No bikes anywhere. I googled it. I typed in 'bike' and nothing came up."
(My first genuine loud laugh on a date in a long, long time!)
Why is he still single? I'm not sure. He alluded to how hard it is to date in NYC and that he hasn't had a long lasting relationship. I wanted to ask how long was the longest but then I knew I'd prejudge based on his answer so I kept my mouth shut.
Did he pay for the date? Yes, he started a tab at the bar.
Did he contact you after the date? I had a good time, so I texted him the next day saying so and thanking him for the drinks. He responded with a jokey question about something we'd chatted about the night before. Bonus points. I responded back.
How many dates did you go on? 1
Would you recommend to a friend? Yes.
He went in the for the kiss on the lips as a goodbye which is still very weird to me. Are dudes trying to see if there's a connection? I need a little warming up before a smooch. We did a quick, awkward peck on the lips and then a hug. I said thanks again. He said "Maybe we'll hang out again" or something similar. I really don't know if he was into me. I think he had fun but it's anybody's guess if I'll hear from him. However I'm realizing that it's okay. I'm happy to have had a good date. Really it's true.
