I mean, at least give a girl ten minutes to clear the premises!
Look buddy – either step up to the plate and take charge or just are to my suggestion. Turns out he was an ER doctor (no complaints there) and conversation was easy to come by. Will had made plans to meet friends for dinner (a classic move, an “escape hatch” should the meeting be a failure – which I fully understood), so we wrapped it up after an hour and said we’d meet again. It was nice to have a new male text buddy but seeing that a new texting friend wasn’t my end goal.
I let this go and tried to play “light and breezy” (a feat for me). He was easy to talk to, there were no awkward silences. I was eager to get the show on the road to see if there was any potential here.
He not only told me with his words, but was doing a somewhat exaggerated yawn-stretch combination.
Universal body language for “I’m sleepy.” It was 9pm and I’d only been there for a little over an hour.
If it’s one thing I have learned about online dating in my limited experience, it’s that you should not waste time going back and forth on email or spend too much time talking on the phone or texting before meeting in person.
