2 months of dating
That Thursday though, he texted me: “Hey, I know you can’t do dinner until Monday, but would you want to meet me for a drink at least after work tonight?I’ll come to your part of town so that you don't have to worry about driving late.I thought he was attractive, obviously, and I could also tell from his pictures he loved to travel, which is something I love too.It was especially nice to have the chance to do a little more digging around with mutual friends before we started talking.At the time, I lived in this condo that had gable fences, and when he picked me up, he said it was like a fairy tale.
But this was different — I was actually excited about it.
Besides, I was working crazy hours and had no time to go out on dates anyway.
But over a few glasses of wine one night, my friend convinced me that I needed to meet someone and go out, so I signed up for Bumble. A big part of the reason that I swiped his profile was because we had so many friends in common [Bumble connects you through Facebook friends].
I had always thought dating apps were for people who only want to hook up, and that wasn’t what I was looking for.
My thinking was that I’m not going to meet anyone that is driven and has good morals online.
