Sonya Dines Out

OOTD 11/18/2013

I don't have a proper outfit post for y'all, because these low-quality selfies were the only pictures I managed to take. I do have a bit of news: I went on a date tonight! With a guy from OkCupid. I wrote a recap on Tumblr immediately after getting home, and I'm gonna post it here too, because it's the story behind me getting fancied up in a cute collar AND floral ruffles.

Basics: Korean food. I picked the restaurant. We split the bill. Roughly 1.33 hours.

He was nervous, which was kinda cute. And surprising, since I don't think of myself as intimidating.

He told me that I was more attractive than my pictures, and then asked if I did that on purpose, as some kind of weeding-out-the-shallow-ones strategy. (Lol, no.) He was also more attractive than his pictures, but I don't voice every weird backhanded compliment that occurs to me, so I didn't tell him that.

I forget why this came up, but he asked if I was a feminist and I was like, "Yeah," and then he said, "So I'm only paying for half of this bill, huh?" I think he was kinda joking--but mostly serious. We did end up "going Dutch", as I mentioned in the beginning.

He told me a little bit about his experiments with "hacking brain chemistry" to make himself more productive and outgoing. According to him it's been a success. (I have no idea what he was like before, so I can't comment.)

At the end of the date, when I was dropping him off at the train station, he said, "I don't know if it's better to ask for a second date now or send a message later." There was a bit of awkwardness, but I said yes to hanging out again. I was a little surprised that he seemed quite into me, because I didn't feel like we ~super clicked~ or anything, but who knows what he was thinking.

From this recap, it probably doesn't sound like a charmed encounter, but it was actually quite nice. It's just that the negatives/weird stuff are the only interesting parts...

  2. Oh man. Your description of the awkwardness totally reminds me of myself on first dates or so. Thankfully your date went well! Sometimes it was all I could do to just smile and then make it through the dinner conversation ;)

  4. I am happy for you that you went on a date! It's fun even though you may have not connected immediately. Sometimes those sparks can take a little bit of time, or maybe they don't happen at all! The mystery is intriguing. :)
