What Happened:

One night while staying visiting friends I found myself swiping away. (Really, I’m just looking for people I know because I love to read the bios). But I came across Lucas and thought I’d give him a go when I saw he was from Chicago. Midwestern and New Englanders have this special bond. I can’t explain it, but I was all about it.

He offered to meet me in Boston which was so fucking sweet but since I was in his neck of the woods anyways, figured I’d save him the trip.

He was very cute and just seemed like a kind soul. He covered my coffee and we got chatting. He was an engineer and had grown up just outside Chicago. He had two sisters who he was close with and seemed like he was raised right.

We chatted for quite a while but I just couldn’t tell if he liked me or not. I couldn’t place it if it was just he wasn’t feeling it or, he was an engineer and therefore couldn’t make it obvious if he did or not.

He walked me to my car and we hugged. We had only chatted through Tinder so I didn’t have his number. I was feeling ballsy so I sent my number over. Radio silence. After 48 hours I deleted the thread out of embarrassment and that was that.
