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?!


  1. I'm a little sad about this one! There was such build up and potential, and I had already implanted in my head this picture of you guys growing old together...I need to stop doing that!

    Oh well, there are plenty of other fish in the sea! (I said that just for you since it was on the list of things NOT to say to people) So I'll end with just keep it casual...

  2. That's so true, you can't force love!!

  3. I am just a bit unhappy relating to this just one! There were this sort of build-up along with potential, along with I had already incorporated around my go that image of a person folks ageing jointly... I have to cease doing that will!
