I think the awkwardness was coming from both of us. I think we're both just awkward people.
Dates go better when one person is extroverted. He seemed kind of nervous around me: I noticed that when he was showing me a picture on his phone, his hand was shaking! I wouldn't have thought the weirdness was worth following up on but I guess he did because he sent me a weird text today. He said he was sorry our goodbye was so awkward & different from our first date but he's trying to just meet people without starting anything romantic.
Sounds to me like an excuse to explain away why he wasn't as interested the second time around, but whatever--neither was I. Either that or he's gay.
Thank you for the well wishes about the next guy! (Oh dear, what a conveyer belt...) I'm also going out tonight with a guy from a couple of months ago just for a good time. Yes, I'm a "good time" girl now. SMH.
