Charming, but single

A journal in dates and drinks

You look like this guy I know ...

What do you do when someone you KNOW messages you through a dating site? Send back a chatty, "Hey, remember that night at [The Cigar Bar] when we all listened to that little band?" Or, should I ignore the fact that we have mutual acquaintances and act "surprised" if I end up setting up a coffee date with him. This guy isn't a close friend, but we've met through friends at least once. He definitely was checking out one of my buddies the night we met. He even asked if she had a boyfriend.

The girlfriend I was with that night, we're kind of opposite types. I'm tall with brown hair and she's short with blonde. The other differences are harder to pin down, but they are there.

We approach things differently.

She's a lawyer. I'm a PR girl.

She was drinking Miller. I was sipping white wine.

I mean, he was definitely a nice guy, even if he did check his Blackberry at the bar.

But, sloppy seconds? Knowing that at first glance he went in the opposite direction?

Or, do I assume that it was dark and maybe he didn't get a good look the first time?
