Tinder date number 3 was the best so far. This was the guy I originally blew off. Then we rescheduled and he blew me off. He texted me about an hour before we were supposed to meet to say his dog was sick. I thought it was a pretty lame excuse but I did the same thing to him first so couldn’t be too mad! When he reached out for us to try a third time I decided to go for it.
We met at a casual but nice restaurant. We sat outside. He ordered us an appetizer. He took the initiative and just did it. I appreciate that. That is manly in my opinion. We each had two drinks during dinner. We were there for about two hours but it didn’t seem that long. I was comfortable even though the conversation lagged at times. He grew up close to me. He didn’t graduate high school but got his GED and started college at 16. He works with boats and sounds successful. He doesn’t believe in debt. Being a Dave Ramsey fan this was music to my ears. Also, we ordered carrot cake to share at the end. This restaurant is known for their amazing carrot cake so I was very excited when he suggested it. He paid for dinner, I offered to split it but he said no way. I offered to be polite but was happy that he didn’t take it.
Our date was last Thursday night. He texted me on Friday asking if we could hang on Sunday and I told him that I had plans but suggested Tuesday. He said ok cool. Its now Tuesday at 5:54pm and I haven’t heard from him. Was I supposed to reach out?! I want someone that makes an effort. I don’t want to chase him around. I’ve done that before and don’t want to anymore!
