The last few dates I’ve been on haven’t been horrible, but also haven’t been great. I think if you’ve been dating as long as I have you can tell after an hour or so with someone if you want to spend more time with them AND if you have any physical chemistry.
The last date I went on was a couple of weeks ago. REALLY nice guy. He’s a furniture designer, 40, owns a home, totally has his shit together and is engaging, but after 90 minutes with him I felt like I was either on a new business meeting or was already in the friend zone. We met for wine. We talked and laughed. I had a glass of red, he ordered a sav blanc (I know… ), but he was a really nice guy. AND, he picked up the check! (You know how I’m cursed with being left with the bill!)
After the date he walked me to my car, gave me a hug and said he “lets definitely do this again some time.” Four days later he emailed me. Just last night I emailed him back… “Thank you again for a nice night! It was so refreshing to have such a great conversation with someone new. I don’t think there’s a love connection, but would be happy to chat anytime and might even have a girl or two to set you up with.”
His response… “Great talking to you as well and sounds good. Good luck in your matching and keep in touch!”
So, I have a few girls I think I want to set him up with. He’s a nice guy and someone should date him. It’s just not me. What are your thoughts on setting up someone you met online?
