How did you meet? online

Name: Timothy 

Height: 6'0" 

Age: 33

Occupation: film production

Good quotes from date:

Him: "My friend just got into a bike accident on the Brooklyn bridge the other day. He wasn't wearing a helmet. He had to put his scalp back on his head and ride over the bridge to get help."

Me: "I always wear a bike helmet. Don't you?"

Him: "No."

Why is he still single? He's a chatty Cathy and too work focused.

Did he pay for the date? No, since I was on time for both dates I bought myself a drink.

Did he contact you after the date? After the first one I reached out to say hello then he asked me out again. After the second date, no.

How many dates did you go on? 2

Would you recommend to a friend?
don't think so


Our first date was very short (1 hour) because he had a work event after and my weeks were crazy busy so we squeezed it in. It was a good first date, we had a lot in common, we chatted about careers, family and traveling. He said we should hang out again when we both have more time. I agreed. I walked home smiling. He was cute, friendly, and flirty.

We had to wait two weeks to schedule a second date but in between that time we texted off and on. One of those weekends I was in Chicago where he grew up and I went to a Mexican place that he recommended.

The second date  lasted only two hours and he was late again (he was late on the first date too, but that didn't really bother me). He was late because this time he had a work party to go to before our date, and I began to understand that work is his girlfriend. Conversation was less than stimulating both because he was doing most of the talking and his stories were negative and depressing. He didn't ask any questions about me. I spaced out at one point wishing I was home reading my book. He ended the date after the second drink saying he was tired.

I was too. Tired of these dates that I get excited for only to be disappointed. Although the burrito was NOT disappointing so that's something...
