So far he’s done everything right. His initial message mentioned something very specific and idiosyncratic in my profile, one of those special details I mention to give guys a flavor of the true me (something I’d never mention here because that would be revealing a factoid that ‘s just TMI for someone trying to remain anonymous). It’s something we have in common and we exchanged a few emails about it right away.
And then he mentioned this event/thing he wanted to go to on Saturday. It’s a very New Yorkery thing to do and it’s something I’ve always wanted to go to but never have. Perfect for dates.
The thing is, I’m feeling really mellow about this date. Not that I don’t think I’m going to like this guy. I do. But I kind of don’t care how it turns out. I don’t feel like I have anything emotionally invested in it. Which, I gotta say, is kinda a nice place to be. For now.
