I have never been on a coffee date that went well.
It’s as if investing only $2 in your first meeting somehow destines it for failure.
What can you learn about someone in a 30 minute conversation that’s going to drive you wild for them?
At best, it’s a polite conversation about things that don’t matter.
At worst, it’s an awkward conversation about things that don’t matter.
It’s a waste of everyone’s time.
I personally prefer to share a meal with someone. To share a drink and perhaps get relaxed enough to get the real conversation flowing.
My $1000 date was fantastic.
Not because my date spent $1000 or because the $500 bottle of wine made me want to cry tears of joy.
No, it was because I had a connection with my date. We were both relaxed and the conversation flowed freely.
But a coffee date? Who falls in love over their Starbucks?
I suppose this is just a rant about not having the opportunity to connect with anyone on a meaningful level and blaming the coffee date for the lack of connection.
The truth is people do fall in love over lattes.
Just not this woman.
