Together dating success
And when I finally met Eddy for our first date, I had been going on so many of these, and was so busy, I didn't even know his name.I walked into the restaurant where we met, and I literally had to check my phone, like, He took me out to dinner, which is a really bold first-date move, and it ended up going really well.We had such a great time, we went to about seven different bars afterward.About three weeks into things, we were eating dinner at a restaurant in Brooklyn when I realized I was just so infatuated with him.Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing.I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.So we set up the date but had to push it off a couple times.
He had met my son, so we had to ask: Do we have a future? I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm just going with it. But I liked him back, and he messaged me right away. If he seemed normal, we'd have a drink, rather than building up this idea of who he is. On the site we used, they have a question that asks the things you can't live without, and I wrote was bad for the eyes and something about the evil eye. I actually forgot his name — I only remembered that he was no. When I got home, he texted me that he was deleting his account, and I was like, OK. It was the beginning of summer in New York, and every weekend was busy.
I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there's a 13-year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart.
So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.I went on dates with a few guys, and it wasn't good.
