Another One Down

Filed under: Dating,Personal — by teofilo @ 3:14 pm

I had my third date with the latest girl today.  We went to an anthropology museum.  It was fun, and she seemed to enjoy it, but we didn’t talk much and it felt a little awkward.  Afterward I asked if she wanted to get some coffee or something and she said no, she really had a lot of work to do.  I said we could do something again sometime and she said maybe, but that she really was thinking of this as just friends and that we didn’t seem to have enough in common.  I said that was fine.

She was right, of course, as the fact that we didn’t talk much at the museum illustrated.  We have some things in common, but I was always concerned about whether it was enough for anything to happen.  She never really seemed that interested in a relationship with anyone, actually, which is what sometimes happens with these set-up situations.  There were also some logistical issues, not as bad as with the previous girl who lived extremely far away, but still potentially problematic; she doesn’t live very far away from me, but it’s still a non-negligible distance, and she doesn’t drive, which meant I would have had to put a lot of effort into seeing her.  That would have been worth it for someone who seemed to be really into me, but I never got that impression from her.

So I’m not too upset, and actually a little relieved.  It ended well, and now I don’t have to worry anymore about any of the problems I had been worrying about recently regarding this.



  1. This is fine, reminds me just on reading of some museum dates I had with the same result. It did end well, as you say.

  2. Not to get New Agey, but in my experience there is quite a lot to be said for ending dates/relationships on a pleasant note. Who you are does reverberate; behaving honestly and honorably with one person has ripple effects beyond that him or her. Not to mention being easier on the conscience.

  3. Bummer. I know you’re not totally devastated or anything, but still. Bummer.

  4. I found another activity you could try: LARPING! (Second page, second paragraph.) 🙂
