don’t be a stranger!

After my interesting coffee date last week, I felt it was time I started to be more proactive about meeting people and I signed up for an online dating site. (Not one of the more popular commercial ones, but a decent, free site, just to get my feet wet.) I received a handful of interesting (i.e. weird) messages in the first couple of days, none of which I replied to, except for one nice, normal one that caught my eye.

So, I messaged back and forth a couple of times with this one guy and talked on IM through the site once for about half an hour on evening, and then he asked if I’d like go out on a date. I figured, why not? Isn’t that the whole point? So, we decided to shoot for Sunday afternoon and determined bowling would be a fun first date. In the few days leading up to it, he had my number, and would text me a few times a day asking how I was doing and obviously showing interest in meeting me.
We talked on the phone earlier today to finalize plans. Everything seemed fine – we met up, chatted, bowled, laughed, seemed like a decent time. Then it was time to go our separate ways and instead of any, “this was fun, let’s do it again” all he said was, “don’t be a stranger!”
Don’t be a stranger? What the hell does that mean?
Perhaps it’s true – you get what you pay for – and maybe I need to join a dating site with a membership fee. 🙂


  1. I used to love purusing (sp?) those dating sites in college. That was HOURS of entertainment for me, but it always seemed like people seemed a lot different in person than they did online. Hope he texts you tomorrow.
