How i got a date on a date

I had an eHarmony date with a guy I was [to be brutally honest] not interested in at all. I don’t really know why I agreed to go on the date. I was not looking forward to it much but I decided to go anyway. I am glad I did.

We planned to meet up in Hollywood because it was half way between the two of us. I suggested a coffee shop that I frequently go to.

I arrived there a bit early just to grab a table. When I arrived the cute barista I hadn’t seen in several months was working. We chopped it up again like old times. He ended up giving me my drink for free. And I told him I was there for a “meeting.”

When my date arrived I knew at once it was a mistake to meet up with him – we were not going to be a connection. We had coffee for about an hour and then I had another meeting to get to [this time it was actually a meeting] but as I got ready to leave I told him I had to go to the restroom in hopes that he would leave and I could talk to cute barista boy again before leaving.

It worked.

We chopped it up a bit more and ended up exchanging information. And that’s how eHarmony KIND of worked for me even though I didn’t actually end up dating any of the matches THEY gave me.

Shameless or resourceful? Well done, my friend.

Well, Robin...perhaps I should write a follow-up to the evening proceeding the exchange of information? Two words: Orange Peel. mmmmm, memories.

So he left when you went to the bathroom at the end? Wow, I could never see myself do that ... must have been a REALLY bad date.
