Matchmaker Part 3
As planned, we met at the Essential Bakery on a rainy Sunday afternoon. This was probably the "blindest" date I had been on! I heard a little about him from my aunt, who knew his grandparents. But the details were vague (and slightly inaccurate). Of course, I also did some facebook and google research.
As far as I know, he had very limited information on me. Probably even less than I had!
So, I called as I was arriving, and he gave me specific information about where he was sitting in the restaurant. We ordered some lunch and started to chat. As the conversation advanced, I think we both got the sense that we didn't necessarily mesh romantically. I'm not sure if he even realized that it was supposed to be a date--it seemed very platonic.
Final conclusion--we're both very busy with school. I assured him that, if he wanted to do something fun around the Seattle area, I'd be happy to accompany him or give him good ideas. But I felt more like we were cousins than potential sweethearts.
I called my aunt. She was disappointed. But, you can't force love, right?!
