Note: this is NOT the guy who canceled on me earlier in the week

Name: Joe Llama

Introduction Platform: Bumble - we’d been texting for about a week and a half on the app

Age: 50

Relationship Status: Divorced several years (I think six or nine or something? Can’t remember, but long enough, for sure). Two kids - one in college, one in high school who lives with his mom.

Job: Owns a software consulting company

Lives: On a ranch about 45 minutes from my downtown place (better than Big Wild Rancher’s hour and a half commute)

Length of Date: 3 hours

We Did: Met for coffee and walk on the city trail and then we added a light snack/glass of wine afterwards.

He Looked: He’s maybe 5’11”, has an extremely striking face, very handsome. His wardrobe could stand some updating (he dresses a little bit like an early-2000s club dude), and his personal style is a little dated as well (can you say lots of hair gel?)

I Looked: What I wore to brunch club, minus the Loubie heels. Instead, I changed into flat knee-high boots but kept the furry coat, polka dot blouse and distressed denim.

Convo: So much walk and talk! We did the normal getting-to-know-you kind of stuff and I asked him a LOT of questions about his life on the ranch. Y’all. He has a LLAMA!! And donkeys and longhorns and chickens and dogs and…and… I mean, he basically has a zoo at his place! I’m fascinated! We ended up talking quite a bit about brain injuries because he suffered a concussion from a fall about four years ago that he’s still recovering from. We discussed recovery methods, food that’s good for your brain, supplements and eating/drinking habits. I found all of that interesting and helpful. We moved our walk and talk to coffee and continued the conversation and then moved it over again to a little French bistro where we had some salads and I had a glass of wine (he doesn’t drink but was fine with me drinking).

High Point: He has kind of a dorky personality that I found both humble and hilarious at the same time. I found myself laughing HARD several times and I could tell that it made him feel good. I was pleased to feel such enjoyment today.

Low Point: I feel awful even writing it, but I’ve already said it above…though he has extremely attractive features, his whole LOOK needs a major update. It could be tons of fun dressing him!

How It Ended: After our tiny dinner, he walked me to my car and we hugged it out a couple of times. I was totally open to a kiss from him, however a kiss on the lips never happened (we kissed on the cheek)

Chances Are: If he asks, I’ll go for sure. I give it a 75% chance of him asking.

Date Rating: B. It would have been an A if he’d both kissed me and asked to see me again.
