“Adam” – what a weird, quirky dude. We met at a local wine bar, and shortly after I met him, a new guy sat next to us. Adam seemed more into talking to this new guy than to me -- his date – the person upon whom he should have been trying his best to make a good first impression. (if this is improper English, so be it – several glasses of wine were drunk tonight for the sake of sanity)
The whole night, “Adam” was just too strange. He eventually got worse, making inappropriate comments (“Liv Tyler is a nice piece of ass” and “I’ve got to pee”). When he chatted up the 40-something blond to his right with the deep cleavage, I was happy to let him go.
The highlight of the night? The new guy next to us, and his girlfriend, who joined him a little while later – what a lovely couple! I invited them to an upcoming happy hour I’m hosting.
Another highlight of the evening: discovering this lovely new wine bar. This region was previously verboten for dates because it was around the corner from This Guy… but since This Guy has been abducted by aliens, I’ve reclaimed this mini foodie Mecca.
More tomorrow, when sober.
