Last Tuesday I met up with the fifth guy I have dated. I was really looking forward to this date. This guy was really quite cute and leading up to the date we exchanged several well writting, charming emails. I actually felt a good connection with this self-proclaimed geek. The fact that he described him self as a bit of a geek was actually a selling point for me. I kinda like that geeky vibe. I like that guy who was kind of geeky as a kid but eventually came into his own around university.
We met up at the Shoe Shop...where I also met up with Victor and Pat...seems to be a go to choice for blind daters apparently. When I arrived he was there waiting on a table he scored on the patio. I went over and gave him a hug and sat down. He looked exactly as he did in his profile so that pleased me. What I was not prepared for was the weird speech impediment/accent. It totally threw me off. I actually had a difficult time understanding him at times. I can't even mimic it or explain what it was like...it wasn't a lisp...it was like his mouth was extra spitty and he dragged out his words...kind of like a valley girl...but not.
He was also not just a touch nerdy...he was extremely nerdy. I'm talking comic books, wrestling, video games, action figures, zombies, computer programmer, Star Wars, Transformers....think Big Bang Theory. I am sure he and Sheldon would be great friends!
The bottom line is this guy was nice but there was zero attraction. It really was a shame because probably more than all of my other dates I was looking most forward to this one. I must not have done it for him either because I haven't heard a thing from him either. This makes life easier:)
Oh yeah...he was also a 31 year old with Optimus Prime and Spiderman posters adorning the walls of his apartment(or so he told me).
