Match Made In Pants Up"DATE"
Welp. I went on another coffee date this afternoon. I feel like I just need to keep knocking them out because I have so many to go through and the longer I wait on each of them, the more likely they are to get bored and unmatch me or vice-versa. This guy I think was a recent match. He literally said a few things to me on Bumble. And then said, wanna meet? Now, normally it wouldn't be THAT easy. But I was just in that kind of mood and made the plan! Plus it helped that it was the middle of the afternoon and I had no other plans holding me back.
So this guy seemed decent looking from his pics. Not crazy attractive. A little bit longer hair. But not like man-bun long. More like an awkward grow out after a bad haircut long. He's also 42 I think. Maybe 41. I have my match settings to only see people from 31-42 I believe. I started out with 32 to 39... but #options.
I will say before the "date" I was really dreading it. Like "Do I have to put pants on right now" And "Oh man, my dog is snuggling with me on the couch... I don't want to have to lose this place.
But alas, I still put my pants on and went. It's not nice to ditch and I try really hard not to do that. Plus, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!
So we met at a coffee shop in SE. Rain or Shine Coffee. Was a cute little joint. The second I saw him in person I knew he was on the not as cute side of the online pictures scale. But he wasn't terrible looking. Just a normal average dude. And to be honest, conversation wasn't bad. He seemed like a really nice human being. But things started to get a little awk. He was asking me if I liked to cook. And really I don't. I don't really mind cooking but it's not my thing. So then he said, "Do you eat out a lot then." And my answer was also no. lol. I could tell he was like umm...okay... ha ha but I didn't really want to shout out that I come home to a cooked meal every night from my roommate, who happens to be my mom. ha ha. I'm so that person. Gah! The one that I'm sure some guy is blogging about right now... something like "She was cute, but then we met and she told me she lives at home in her moms basement and thinks she's a rockstar." Lol. Shoot! I'm the stereotype! And to be honest, it's embarrassing to admit! I wish I could afford my own place.... but such things take time... so anyway... back to MY version of the date! ;)
The date was starting to wrap up right around the 1 hr mark. Which is right around when the awkward pauses happen. Nobody had any more surface level questions left so somebody has to wrap it up. He said, I'd like to see you again. And I said, yeah sounds good. And then he caught me off guard with, "Well what did you have in mind?" Um.. dude, I don't know. YOU'RE the one who just said you wanted to see ME again. I haven't been planning our second date this meeting. It was super awkward and honestly felt like he was judging me based off what my idea of a second date would be. And at that point I really just wanted to say my 2nd date will take place on my couch. Not with you. But with my dog... lol.
Needless to say we walked out and he commented on my shoes and jacket saying we were matching. So I'll call this guy; Match-made-in-pants since I decided to wear pants. :)
Honestly, if he called or messaged me I MIGHT see him again just cause he seemed like a decent human. But if I had to be honest, no sparks flew. And the end just got weird. So if he doesn't message, nothing lost. And I certainly won't be messaging him. On to the next! Still kind of excited to meet the guy who likes Trump. Which is surprising. But I'll go with it! And that's today's up"date"!!!! :) Trump guy, should be this weekend...
