A date’s better than no dates…

If you’re in your twenties, the holiday season means a flood of engagements will be coming through your FaceBook newsfeed. I suppose that has had a hand in raising my anxiety of being single and has caused my screening process to become a little more lenient. Apparently I have a date this Saturday night with a guy who’s profile I only glanced at, and exchanged no more than two messages with. I thought I might as well get a night out of deciding if this person is worth any more of my time. I have very low expectations, which means it’s going to take a lot to be let down next weekend. In the meantime I’ve been exchanging messages with a girl I’m really not that excited about, but hey someone female actually isn’t ignoring me on these sites for a change.

Back To The Bar Scene

In bed with a hangover, but the blog must go on! Last night I wound up with a group of friends at the lesbian bar I’d been to a couple of weeks ago and this time it was packed. I found it was a very different scene than my first visit, and with a few more drinks than the last time I didn’t have much trouble talking to anyone. Unfortunately, all of the girls I spoke to turned out to be straight and just there for friends or siblings I didn’t find very attractive. One woman tried to teach me how to dance and I did enjoy listening to a group of girls with an accent I really liked. Overall I had a good time, though I didn’t really get anywhere successful in my dating life…Except for one message I came home to in my dating site inbox:
“And would you be free to meet up for drinks on Thursday?”
It was from a girl who’d actually replied when I sent out another 10 messages a few days ago. I don’t know a lot about her, but I like the idea of meeting someone in person first to find out more. Thursday is the day the girl who texted me wanted to meet, and although we have a time, she never replied with a place so I’m not even sure that’s happening. I’m still keeping the possibility open so I asked if this girl was free a different day.
