Second Date vs. Nth Date

As I mentioned in the comments on a recent post, I've reached the point of wanting to settle down. For good. Therefore, the stakes have changed for my dates. If I'm asked out and I accept, it's usually because the guy seems nice enough, though I usually don't have a lot of hope of him making it to a second date. However, if I ask a guy out, there's a huge difference—I want him to make it to the nth date, not just the second.

Such is the case with Theo. I had an excellent time with him Saturday night and I'd really like to see him again. Unless if I completely misread him as we said hasty goodbyes as I got off the train, he's interested too. I sent him a short message this morning, so now the wait begins.

In other news, I read this somewhat offensive column on Huffington Post today. Now, I have to start by saying that the author is a senior in college and a guy, so his perspective is likely to be different than mine anyway. Still, I can't say that I'd consider doing any of the things he mentions in his column. Would you?

Wow. That article was utterly disgusting. He is the sort of person I think the world would be infinitely better off without. My guess is that he is some kind of sociopath.

Let us know how it goes with Theo! It sounds promising!

. . . huh? I'm not even sure what the point of that was, other than that Jeff Katz is a jerk. I text my friends late at night all the time . . . but it's not because I want a hookup. It's because I'm a night owl!
