My friend Heidi and her friend set me up for a blind date. I heard he has a good job, is good looking, and has no kids. Sounds good… He called me and asked me if I was interested in meeting. Sure, why not. When I asked where we should meet, he hesitated and said, “Let’s not do a dinner”. I said, “ok, that’s fine with me if you’re not comfortable”. Then he said, “um, it’s not that. It’s just, I only have four dollars in my wallet right now”. Hmmm great. That’s a good start, heh. Anyway, I agreed to meet him at a coffee shop at 1pm on Saturday.
When we met at the coffee shop, we introduced each other, and right away, he said, “By the way, I need to get to my buddy’s place by 2:30 (pm)”. Oh. Maybe I didn’t give him a good first impression… We ordered a couple of ice coffee. I watched him and asked, “are you going to get this (tab)”? He said, “I will get this THIS TIME.” Ok, he stressed “this time”, probably implying I need to get it next time. Fine. Not a big deal.
We sat down and talked. When I told him he was attractive, he said THANK YOUUUUUU with a big smile. OK…. Then I realized he hasn’t complemented me at all. Fine. Not a big deal. Then he told me that he doesn’t want to be used by a girl, and he wants to be treated nice. I asked how he meant, and he said, for example, he wants to get a good gift on his birthday, not like a T-shirt he got from his ex-girl friend. Hmmm, I think I got it. He is high maintenance. This is going to be interesting. He is a girl trapped in man’s body.
He asked me what time it was several times during the conversation. A little after 2pm, I asked if he had to leave soon. He said yes and we left shortly after. When we got out of the coffee shop, he said, “It was nice meeting you, call me sometimes”. Call you sometimes? Does he really want to talk to me again, or is he just being nice? A few days later, I did call him, and we had a really long conversation, for 90 minutes! He asked if I want to go to the coffee shop again. Hmmm, did he mean we will go to the same coffee shop for the second date?? Then he said, “Next time, you can pay for the coffee”. Oh jeez. Before we hanged up, I told him he should call me if he wants to talk to me again. I never got a call from him… Oh well, that’s that. I’m glad it’s over.
