App: Coffee Meets Bagel
Date Location: Crossing Nines – Quincy, MA
Location Review: 4.0 Stars – Definitely a hidden gem outside Boston. The patio gives a whole view of the Boston skyline plus the food is actually good.
Date Duration: 3 hours
I never meet anyone off of Coffee Meets Bagel but somehow, it happened with Mark. Conversation wasn’t particularly any which way on the app but he asked me out and I didn’t have a reason to say no. What sold him though was that not only did he give me a specific plan for the date, he also included a rain plan. My Type A ass was thrilled.
He was taller and cuter than I thought he’d be. Very blue eyes and had to be at least 6’1″. I had to give it to him. The date he picked was nice af. We were there around sunset and saw the whole skyline light up.
Mark was a nerd in all senses of the word. Worked in IT, loved board games, and had a passion for history I don’t think I’ve ever encountered. Like he knew every single everything when it came to the state of Massachusetts.
Family seemed relatively normal. He was from MA, went to school there, and didn’t want to leave. Weird to me, but okay. Was going through a bit of a weight loss journey so it didn’t seem like he knew he was cute which is always a plus. Also super liberal which I am always down with.
He talked my fucking ear off until about a beer and a half in. Because he was so nerdy, I wasn’t sure if that came from not being able to hold a conversation or that he was nervous. As the night went on, looked more like nerves.
We ended up closing the bar down and he walked me to my car. I wasn’t sure if he had a good time. Yeah he paid but that doesn’t guarantee anything.
I was kinda expecting that we would kiss but then again, you can never count on it. I miscalculated. We hugged and I went on my way just very confused as to wtf happened. He was nice. I had a decent time. But wasn’t sure where he stood.
By the time I got home I got a text saying I was beautiful and that he wanted to go out again. Guess I did okay.
