After two phone conversations with AI, I knew he seemed much closer to dorky-dorky than cute-dorky. But I figured if I were physically attracted to him, that could be endearing. Yeahhhh, he's not so cute.

The thing was, we had planned to go to 2 places on our date. Note to self! Plan one place, then see how the date goes before agreeing to a Part 2. Because Part 1 would have been fine. Just have a good drink with some decent conversation, say thank you, and leave.

When Part 2 of the date happened, I realized something I hadn't been able to figure out during Part 1. (Non)Adorable (Not so much)Intellectual is a spitter. Yes, of the "Say it don't spray it" variety. This was not so fun. I had to force myself not to visibly cringe every time the dude opened his spitty mouth. If the place had been less crowded, I would have figured out a way to move my chair further away. Alas, 'twas not to be.

I need to become better at getting out of dates. He wasn't a bad guy, so I didn't want to be rude. And so our date lasted over 3 hours. Oy.

If AI were less clueless, he'd realize my body language was not inviting. He'd realize that when I didn't let him walk me home, it was a sign that I don't want to see him again. I fear he is indeed quite clueless. But if he doesn't call, then hey--I don't have to "let him down easy." So wish me luck that he actually gets it!

Aw this date just sounds hiss!

Hopefully the next one will be a winner.

Hey CJ, I am amazed at your endurance. Once I sussed this process out, I refused to go for anything resembling a real date and would meet for no more than a cup of coffee.
You can tell within seconds that you are not interested. I found spending more than 15 mins or so was beyond torturous, so I made sure to not let that happen.
You must have a really high tolerance level -- way higher than mine.

Yuck, what a disgusting date! I hope you don't hear from him again, but if you do, as you already know, be kind as you decline further dates. Here's hoping the dating gets better!
