Background: I had been writing back and forth on Jdate with “Moishe” for a couple of weeks, and he FINALLY asked me out! I said yes, and then we started talking details.
“wanna meet for a coffee and chat and then if we click maybe we can hang out somewhere
if you would like that Dunkin donuts in natick is good”
(He lives in Framingham, which is 5 minutes from Natick. I live in Brookline, 45 minutes away.)
My Thoughts: Sure, the location that’s closest to YOUR house, and NOWHERE near me? How about you come to meet me? Or, even half way? Chivalry is NOT dead!
And, Dunkin’ Donuts? I love you, Dunkin’, but you’re not a great atmosphere for a date. It IS a down economy, but maybe splurge on Starbucks? I know, I’m asking a lot. There are usually Starbucks on every corner — here’s a map if you need help locating one.
My Response: “I’m really sorry, but I’m feeling sick today, so won’t be able to get together. I’ll let you know when I’m better and can get together.”
(By the way, while I was searching for an image for this post, I came across this photo. Maybe he thought this was me? Well, THAT would explain his desire for Dunkin!)
