Argentine and dating
to surprise me as long as there would be something vegetarian.Things almost immediately got off to the wrong foot, less because I was 20 minutes late (He then went on to say that all woman abandon him, not exactly first date conversation either!After exchanging a few messages on the website, he suggested moving over to email, it would be easier than logging into POF all the time. I was starting a draft email from my regular account when I stopped dead in my typing tracks. The poor thing was having a rough go and a queasy stomach to make matters worse. He wasn’t supposed to come back until the weekend and it was Tuesday… Nevertheless, I couldn’t really make him suffer so I helped him come back putting my hypothetical romance on hold…
Then I received a message from yet another photographer. Back on whatsapp, the Texan had replied to my message rather quickly, yet, instead of just a amicable hello and suggestion for a day to meet for coffee, he starts a “get-to-know-you” dialogue.(Looking back over his messages to pick a few out for the post, I came across one where he’d already asked this.) Our conversation was fine but any sparkle that had been kindled over our whatsapping was quickly fading. The restaurant didn’t take credit cards (not so uncommon here)… He was a little embarrassed and I could tell he hadn’t done that on purpose, promising to pay next time. As we walked past the closing up ice cream shop, I knew this was the end of the Texan too. Not only was he quite cute, he took me to this fabulous hipster bar located in a private mansion.
