What were you hoping for?
That we’d click as we did online; that we’ll be more engaged in conversation than we do online
He’s got charming dance moves.
What did you talk about?
A lot—it was about five hours of talking about politics, national heroes, theater, our respective careers, and family life
Any awkward moments?
Between us, no, but we had a good laugh about the scary-funny Uber driver who was supposed to drive me home but was not only literally all over the map but seemed spaced out (so I cancelled).
Good table manners?
Impeccable and refined
Best thing about him?
He offered to walk with me for 3kms and tour me around places I’ve never been to before
Would you introduce him to your friends?
Yes, I think they’ll like him very much.
Describe him in three words.
Smart, cute and likes long walks
What do you think he made of you?
A recluse who likes short walks
Did you go on somewhere?
Yes, we made three stops in total—four, if I include our meeting place
And… did you kiss?
The best I got was a pat on the back and only because he wanted to check if I was sweaty
If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?
I wouldn’t have worn leather shoes.
Marks out of 10?
Would you meet again?
