He actually lives in my home town (a few hours away, but I go there often) and I met him over the holidays when I was visiting family. So we ran into each other a few times over the week that I was there and we've had a few lengthy, flirty conversations but no dates.

Since then we've been emailing. The April date he invited me on is to a ball game. To SL's first question: it's that I don't want him to go to the trouble, especially since I hardly know him and I don't think there's a future with him. He's really cute and fun to hang out with, and I kind of wouldn't mind going on a date with him, but he lives far away and I don't think we'd be compatible for anything long-term anyway.
