Short stories about online dating
I had been so conditioned to be blown off, I thought he was politely breaking up with me.
So we didn't really talk for a couple days, which felt like a long time. I realized he wasn't trying to end things; he did want to keep dating.
Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing.
I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.
So we set up the date but had to push it off a couple times.
So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.And when I finally met Eddy for our first date, I had been going on so many of these, and was so busy, I didn't even know his name.I walked into the restaurant where we met, and I literally had to check my phone, like, He took me out to dinner, which is a really bold first-date move, and it ended up going really well.Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later.I gave him my phone number and he texted me, "Hi, Hannah, it's Matt." And I said: "Which Matt? We went on a hike, and we put wine in water bottles and had a little picnic at the end of the hike.
I'm 5-foot-10, and I've always had a thing about height, and I saw this guy with a really sweet, open face, and he was 6-foot-9, I was like, , and one of my favorite sentences ever, "If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of the machines that registers earthquakes tens of thousands of miles away." And he responded and said that he actually had a sweatshirt.
