Introduction Platform: Hinge
Relationship Status: Divorced a couple of years. Two kids (one autistic son who is doing very well and headed out for his first year of university in a town several hours away) and a daughter in high school.
Job: IT Security
Lives: In the burbs because of kids/school stuff
Length of Date: A couple of hours
We Did: He met me at an outdoor patio close to the apartment building where I’m planning on moving (more on that later). I had been in the area all day yesterday and we had tentatively made plans to go see a new outdoor music venue, but thankfully we both decided to make it easier on ourselves and meet at the patio place.
He Looked: He’s extremely handsome - originally from Puerto Rico, so has that Latin swagger, but not in a machismo kind of way like some guys can have. He’s got a thin build that made me feel heavy. His hair is thick, wavy and impeccable. His smile is friendly and wonderful. I don’t even remember what he was wearing. Clearly doesn’t matter.
I Looked: Little green sundress that makes my eyes look pretty. Mask - until we sat down socially distanced-ish and ordered drinks.
Convo: We covered a lot in a short amount of time. Lots of stuff about the apartment hunt as it’s been top of mind for me - lots of stuff about how the area is different/changing. Lots of stuff about life during Covid (naturally). A little bit about relationships. A little bit about work. You know, the usual.
Low Point: Not sure.
High Point: Not sure.
How It Ended: We both looked at the time. I decided I needed to go because I had to call my parents (what a WEIRD excuse??!!).
Chances Are: Not sure. I’d really, really like to have another date with him to find out more. He was sooooo very friendly and nice and handsome and I don’t think I was flirty enough. Dang.
Date Rating: B
