I love coloured tights, dresses with cardigans and comfortable, old-fashioned shoes. I met Henry on a dating site. His profile was long and very quirky, and was written like he was describing himself as a character in a book. I thought this could just be an interesting creative exercise for him; it could mean that he wants to stand out somehow; or it could mean that he was a bit of an odd duck.
At the time, I was probably trying to be too open-minded. But also, you should be attracted to the person you date! He was also passionate about environmental and human-rights issues, which also seemed like positive common ground. We agreed to meet for a walk in a park. Henry arrived looking somewhat harried and seemed nervous. Once again, I was trying to be open-minded! Henry brought drinks and a bunch of snacks for us to share. Right away, Henry expressed his surprise that I agreed to go on a date with him, since he was unemployed. I realized that I had missed that fact in our chats online.
We talked a bit more about his circumstances and Toronto star dating diaries seemed to me that he was possibly unemployed by choice. I value my career and being able to support myself. I was also a bit worried about the money he had spent on snacks for the date.
We moved on to the topic of travel. Toronto star dating diaries thought he was joking since we had just met, but there was no indication that he was. Maybe he saw them as subsequent dates. I politely responded with something noncommittal. By then I was cold and hungry. I started to feel bad for Henry. He was a nice person and very well-intentioned.
Why make him waste his afternoon, too? I was more than ready to leave, but he wanted to keep walking and talking. I wondered, why is it so hard to get out of awkward social situations? I felt that I had met a sweet, interesting person, but I also learned, on Toronto star dating diaries specific date, that I should always trust my gut and myself.
