Stone, that’s super creepy. I’m glad you sent the no thanks message. I hope he doesn’t say anything totally dickish back, but I wouldn’t count on it.
I echo Kate’s hiking gear idea.August 15, 2015 at 9:49 am #372154LianneParticipant

Woot woot, yay ver!!
Thanks ladies for the hiking outfit suggestions. I’ve realized that I only own grungy gym clothes but I think I pieced something together.August 15, 2015 at 11:15 am #372157KateGuest
Please don’t wear grungy gym clothes on a date.August 15, 2015 at 11:44 am #372159
No, no, I pieced it out of non-sports wear clothes that can be used for a day hike! I am using the black legging capris and cute sports bra idea plus a v-neck tshirt.August 15, 2015 at 12:04 pm #372161KateGuest

Last night was fun! The club was really neat and everyone was friendly. Plus I had a place to wear the shoes I bought for halloween last year. Yayyy for somewhat justifying shoe purchases! We also spent an hour or so at his house making out. So overall a really fun night! Tonight I’m meeting my best friend for dinner and a movie. Best weekend I’ve had in a long time!
Oh and here is what I wore if anyone is interested. It was so much fun to dress up in something out of my usual comfort zone.August 15, 2015 at 5:34 pm #372172veritek33Participant
So for anyone that wanted details, I met tinder teacher for dinner at an Italian restaurant where we sat and talked for two hours. Then we went to a bar a few miles away and sat at the bar and talked for hours and my abs hurt from laughing so hard. when he drove me back to my car he parked next to mine and kissed me and all the butterflies were in my stomach. So then we kissed a few more times. And then he walked me to my door and more kissing. And then just a little bit more kissing. And I really really like him . 🙂August 15, 2015 at 7:25 pm #372175
kare, you are a bombshell! Love your outfit and I’m glad you had fun. Fabbity fab date ver! Thanks for sharing!
The hike with Tinder Finance Guy was really nice. It was super hot out but we chilled by a waterfall. We grabbed dinner at a fun local bar. Kind of an awkward end because he had to run to catch the train so no hug goodbye (I was driving).
He has this way of saying things that could be braggy/humble brag, but he really does seem genuine and just matter of fact about it. He talks about money, savings (“accumulating wealth”), investments etc. and to me that’s like woah too much. On the flipside, he’s cute and considerate. On paper he’s a solid person… job, has his own place, ambitious, likes his family. But maybe too ambitious for me?
A couple other red flaggish thing are: he mentioned offhand that he came out of a long-term relationship in February. Do you think 6-7 months is enough time to get over someone? I wanted to ask him how long the relationship was, but I didn’t since, like, don’t talk about exes on early dates, right? Also he he said an ex from Gr. 12/first year university was “crazy” which I’m not keen on as an adjective for women, but I guess that was also a while ago. This only came up because we were talking about high schools and his ex went to one of the ones we talked about.
I’m not sure if we will see each other soon or ever… He’s been working really late hours and my next two weekends are actually packed. I think I’ll leave it in his court to initiate again.August 15, 2015 at 7:55 pm #372176muchachaenlaventanaParticipant
Omg!! Never again can you use being in a parking lot as an excuse for a dude who didn’t put the moves on your sexy self. I’m SO happy for you. Do you all have any plans for a second date? Yay!!!August 15, 2015 at 8:08 pm #372179AngeGuest
I think 6-7 months is fine if he seems to have moved on and isn’t focused on it. Depends on the person really.
