I’ve been set up on a blind date.
Stilt’s attitude towards blind dating:
Friend tells me via email that she met someone that who is interested in meeting me for drinks. She gave me his full name and says he’s a professor. I google him. He is not a troll. But I do not respond to her. For TWO HOURS.
She replies to me, saying “I sense you are thinking about this. I am giving him your contact info. You can yell at me later.” My reaction:
Then I reply immediately,
“EMAIL ONLY!!! I AM SO YELLING AT YOU!”
After a week, the Prof contacted me. In a polite and succinct email, he recapped meeting my friend and suggested we have drinks this weekend. After a few hours, I replied that I was visiting family out of town all weekend for Mother’s Day. I suggested next week/weekend.
He confirmed. Thursday. Drinks.
