Dating a guy with roommates
I figured, this way, I could see if he was down to talk or if he just wanted to hookup. He texted that something abruptly “came up” when I’d already been at the meeting spot for 30 minutes. We went to the same party a few weeks later, and he a) acted like nothing had happened, and b) tried to make a move. —After online dating for a while, I was so over exchanging endless text messages before actually making plans for a first date.
Instead, if a dude seemed to have decent spelling and a job, I was down to meet up and decide in-person if there was something there.
(I’m 22 now, so I consider myself extremely wise without anything left to learn #Just Kidding).
Anyway, this dude kept asking me to hang out at his house—which I was not at all interested in—so I switched it up and asked him to meet me at the local coffee shop.
After a night out, we were heading back to his (read: parents’) place and stopped into a bagel shop for drunk food.
You’re welcome, and no, we’re not sorry for sharing.And then he did—wearing grey sweatpants and a Bob Marley t-shirt.We sat down in a booth and he immediately starting talking about everything from his childhood to his job. Clear that this wasn’t going to be a two-way conversation, I went into interview mode.I was too scared to do anything, so I quietly waited for my food and got out of there ASAP.The rest of the walk back was spent listening to him talk about how he and his friends always do that between shovelling pieces of smoked salmon in his mouth.
