Awash

Not only is that the name of the (mediocre) restaurant from last night but it is also the way I felt about last night's date. We decided to meet at 7 and within the first few minutes I knew this was not a match and I couldn't wait to go home. The only word I can use to describe my date with J is: awkward. It was like he didn't really know how to make conversation and I had to steer the whole thing. I was really trying to be open and excited about this date, but I just couldn't. I know this isn't someone for me (I mean, a vegetarian would not fit in my steak loving family!). At the end of dinner he asked if I wanted to go grab a drink somewhere and I politely declined. Does this mean he thinks the date went well? I guess that answers my question from yesterday's post (one person can have a totally different date experience than the other).

Speaking of yesterday's post, after my rant and venting I got a message from M when I walked in the door. He apologized for not being in contact (granted it was only 24 hours and I may have been bordering the line to Crazy Town) and asked if I would like to get together this weekend. So now we have a date set up for Friday night, one I am actually looking forward to!

I'm excited to hear about how this weekend's date goes too!! Do you know where you'll be going yet??

Oh! And I should have added that we split the check. I know we are in modern times and after a date or two I don't mind splitting or even treating, but the first date? I still think the man should pay...

Ugh, I hate the blah date!! There is nothing quite so disappointing as having the hope drained from a date when you realize it isn't a match. :(

On the plus side...hurray for Friday's date!!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

If he accepts someone offering to split the check he isn't worth it. Nope...not at all.
A Friday night date is a great sign!
