A day in the life of Andrea's dating...

So upon texting back and fourth w/ boy #1, Scott on Saturday afternoon, we confirmed we would meet up at the Sports Pub at 3 to watch the Packer Game.

At 2:53pm he text me saying he was there and he was at a table right in the front, which was a sigh of relief because I never know where to meet anyone when it’s a date like this. I got there right at 3:00 and found him. Upon review I was pleasantly surprised; he did look like his pictures, cute. I was a tad bit nervous, just because that’s the way I am. The game started and he and I started talking. While it was hard to have a conversation due to the fact we were watching the football game, I could feel myself talking but then quickly looking away to see what the play on the TV was. While the conversation was good, we got along good, he was nice and funny.

Towards the end of the date though I could kind of feel myself maybe getting a little bored. I was supposed to meet my friend at 7 to work on homework, so I kept looking at my phone to know the time. He said he understood that if I had to go I could leave. But I said since my friend wasn’t texting me back yet, there wasn’t any reason for me to leave. The Packers won and then we started watching the Jets game because they were in OT. At the end of the jets game, he seemed to quickly get up and want to go. Now keep in mind, when I got there he was sitting, and in his profile he said he was 5’8. When walking out to the car, he was maybe only 5’6. Again no big deal. We stood there and said good bye and he said he would be in touch.

I left not really feeling goose bumps. I felt more of a friend connection more than anything. While he didn’t do anything wrong and it wasn’t a bad date by any means. I didn’t feel a spark. I almost feel like we had a better spark over email than in person. Which is weird. In conclusion, I would give him a 2nd chance and go out w/ him again to maybe see if something is there and it was first date jitters. But alas, I find him and I might just be better friends.

Date rating 6 out of 10.

I say give it a 2nd shot; you both probably just had 1st date jitters and it was the first time you ever even met. The 2nd date is bound to be better and less awkward.
