77. November 2012: Dave - The Hurricane Date

How did you meet? online

Name: Dave

Height: 5' 11"

Age: 33

Occupation: grad student

Good quotes from date(s):
Him: I have to remind my roommate to put the lid down of the toilet seat. To keep the rats out.
Me: I feel like rats coming out of the toilet is an urban legend. I've never seen it.
Him: Do you feel like us landing on the man is also a urban legend? You didn't see that.
Me: Mmmm, good point.

Why is he still single? He just moved to NYC for grad school and is insanely busy.

Did he pay for the date? Yes.

Did he contact you after the date? No. I texted him and he responded, but we never made plans to meet up again.

How many dates did you go on? 1

Would you recommend to a friend? Sure


He was kind enough to hop on his bike to meet me in my neighborhood since the trains weren't running due to Hurricane Sandy. Conversation was slow to start, but he asked questions and seemed genuinely interested in what I was saying. We had two drinks and after the first we started to exchange some witty banter. Overall a good date, he's smart, somewhat serious (maybe too serious?).  

As we parted way he said he had fun and we should definitely hang out gain next week. I said yeah, me too, sure. He never followed up. I'll never during this dating project, nor during my life, understand why men say things they don't mean. On behalf of all the ladies in the world - stop it. It's annoying.
