I’ve played cupid in my day, maybe once or twice.
However up until this point in life I’ve never been the person that someone set up. Until now.
My soon-to-be former FWB seemed to think his good friend in Ohio would be a good match for me. And on a recent trip to OH to visit my college friends, I ended up meeting Mr. Ohio.
Yes, I went to another state and ended up on a date. Surprise!
Mr. Ohio drove 2ish hours to meet me and we went out for dinner which turned into a drink at the bar date…that turned into coffee in a bookstore date. (Aren’t those the BEST kind?) Oh, and how could I forget it turned into a “come in and meet my friends” date before he drove home.
The soon-to-be former FWB did a good job. At first it felt like “you’re single and he’s single and you both want kids and I want him to move to Buffalo so I can hang out with him so why don’t you date” kinda thing.
But as the night went on I quickly realized this was only part of his plan. I think it was about at the point where he was talking about catching minnows in the creek as a kid and selling them with his brother. (Ok, my brother and I didn’t SELL them but we did catch them and try to feed them to our cats, with no luck.)
It was a nice date.
And even though Mr. Ohio lives…well…5ish hours away.
We’ve managed to have two more dates. Ok, one didn’t really count because it was lunch and the now-former FWB was with us, but…
I’d say that’s a pretty good track record so far.
