Almost forgot to blog about this one! I met up with Michael on a hot, humid night at pub Italia after he was done playing soccer. We had chatted a bit back and forth, and he seemed really great and we had similar profiles. He's a grade 7/8 math teacher. I was pleasantly surprised when I met him because he looked better in person than in his photos. He wasn't what I was expecting though, not better or worse, just different. I think I was picturing him a bit more nerdy. It was a fairly short date - I think I only had one drink. The conversation felt a bit forced and there were some long, awkward pauses. He started to tell me how he invited a girl from his soccer team as his date to a wedding the weekend prior...but then ditched her?! I thought that was maybe not the best story to be telling someone on a first date! He also seemed like the type of guy who is maybe a bit too negative and enjoys a good debate. Not really what I'm looking for. At the end of the date, we parted ways and biked home. He did mention if I wanted to do it again, to let him know...but that won't be happening.
