hi! So I went on a date last night, first date with someone I met online. Lets call him Ben. I cant stand online dating but its a good way to meet people these days. Its still just as tough as going to a bar. You have to weed through the crazies and creeps. Who is looking for a hook up and who is looking for a mother. It is harder to tell the liars from the honest joes. When you meet someone in a bar you can tell when they are full of shit or at least I can. Online it takes an email or two, a phone call to tell what kind of person they are.
So anyway..Ben. We had emailed a few times then talked on the phone. Unfortunately he is as much of a decision maker as I am so we had a hard time picking a place and thing to do. He was way more confident then I was that we would hit it off. I was aiming for a quick drink or coffee for a first date and he was up for a whole day of stomping around town. I think he is just a more optimistic person or I have been on more crappy first dates then he. Which I think is the case. So we met at this really nice outdoor mall. One of the things I love about Cali is there outdoor malls. It was a bit chilly yesterday but we sat outside and had some coffee then decided to go to a movie. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I know its not a date movie but he had read the books and I had seen the European version so we knew what we were getting into. Ps great movie. We then went for pizza and joked around a lot. He laughed when I took the kids menu to and crayons to color while we waited for our food. We did the puzzle on the menu which was cute. Overall it was a very nice first date.
