Let’s Start This Thing!
This is that awkward first post where I’m not sure what to say. It’s like that moment at the party where the host wanders off and you’re suddenly left standing next to that pretty girl/boy, and realize you have nothing interesting to say, but you also called dibs on him/her when you walked through the door with your best friend.
“So… Have you known [insert name of host here] long?”
“Oh ages. We used to date in college.”
“Really? So you went to [insert name of much better school than yours here]?”
“Just for a few years. Then I shifted over to Oxford.”
So very out of you league
“Oxford! That must have been interesting. Study anything… interesting?” Yes, you sounded like an idiot there.
“I did my thesis on gender rolls and representation in gay male erotica authored by women.”
You make enough intelligent conversation to get his/hers number at the end of the night. Your friend gets drunk and throws up in the back garden.
Can’t wait for our second date.
