I had no idea at the time that what transpired on that date would make me swear off internet dating.
But it did.
You see, I kinda liked the guy.
He was respectful, thoughtful, and nice.
A real gentleman.
Per typical first date guidelines, we chatted about careers, family, hobbies, etc.
And it went nicely.
I mean there were no fireworks, but I was so impressed that he wasn’t staring at my tits or trying to talk me into going back to his place that I didn’t care.
I was happy just being treated like a human being.
Granted, he was a former Mormon, with a big Mormon family and all the issues that go along with that.
But overall, he was a step up from what I’d been experiencing.
But then he said it.
“I think I can speak for both of us when I say there’s no chemistry.”
First of all, please do not presume that after spending two hours with me that you can speak for me.
Second of all, how the hell would you know about our chemistry?
You haven’t even touched me.
It’s ironic, isn’t it?
A decent date caused me to swear off online dating.
But it’s true.
I drew a line in the sand and I haven’t crossed it since.
I may be a little on the “friendly” side, but I don’t make assumptions about chemistry until I’ve kissed someone.
That’s just how I roll.
