it’s the first installment of actual dating adventures! up to now, we’ve just been hypothesizing and strategizing, but starting right now…it’s some real live adventures!
so tonight i met Monsieur Un. he works at a law firm as a day job, but is a painter in real life. like most artists i know, he has sold his works, but is not making a living off it.
we started the evening at bushwick country club. which was a fun enough bar. very williamsburg. inflatable deer’s head on the wall. i had 2 vodka tonics and a hot mulled cider with bourbon. [that one was delicious.] after drinks we went to a mexican place across the street. it was good. very hot salsa and fresh ingredients. kind of the way to my heart, really. and then we ended the evening with pastries at…this italian place like a block from my house. whose name i can’t remember.
all in all, it was an enjoyable evening. M. Un. is a nice person. who literally said at least 5 times how great it was to meet me. and he said that he’d been on a couple of dates through howaboutwe.com, but that he hadn’t met anyone interesting. so i guess that makes me feel good. or interesting at least. i mean, whatever. i guess i knew that i am an interesting person. but i guess it’s good to know that i am still interesting compared to other new york girls. i don’t know if it’s an internet dating faux pas to discuss internet dating on an internet date, but i did. mostly because i say what i want, when i feel like it. suck it, social convention.
so yeah. i’m actually not too terribly sure what to write. i’m feeling a little underwhelmed. i mean, it was fun. and i’d like to see M. Un again. but i’m not going to lie. it wasn’t some instant love connection. which shouldn’t be surprising. since i’m not really that kind of girl. and i think i am going to see him again. he brought it up as we were saying good-bye. so it seems like a reasonable thing to think. unless he’s like other people who say, “oh yeah, let’s hang out, i had so much fun, blah, blah fucking blah, i’m just so hard to pin down."
i apologize for my first adventure not being terribly adventurous. but hey, i didn’t get dismembered! so that’s always great.
also, if you haven’t noticed by this point. i am numbering the boys…en francais. i think it hits the right blend of flippant and pretentious that i constantly strive for. on the internet, at least.
also! my lovely friend dearmissjulia has joined this blog! so hopefully we will soon have posts from her, too! email me at email@example.com if you are interested in writing here.
