Dating few weeks
There was no doubt about it, he was cute — but as we settled in with our Bud Lites (his choice, not mine) it became clear that we didn’t have all that much in common.
Where my ideal Saturday involves reading a good book at my neighborhood coffee shop, he much prefers to spend his precious non-working hours drunkenly wandering the streets of New York with his buddies.
Still, I had another week of my experiment, and I was determined to see it through.
Besides, I was surprised to realize that I was having more fun than I’d had in years.
But despite a long day at work, I put on a fresh layer of makeup, wriggled into a cute dress in the office bathroom, and headed to a bar within walking distance of my job.
I spent two weeks trying new restaurants and bars, participating in activities that got me out of my comfort zone, and meeting interesting people.With two weeks’ worth of first dates, at least one of them had to be boyfriend material, right?I knew it was ambitious, but I’ve always been someone who accomplished anything she set her mind to.So after months of my friends telling me to “get on it,” I finally worked up the courage to sign up for a dating app.After getting the encouragement of matching with a few guys I didn’t find repulsive, I decided that every day for the next two weeks, I would go on a date.
