Restaurant Rating: 🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰 out of 5. I FINALLY tried @hannysbar’s tiramisu! And oh my goodness I’m in love. I tried a Shirley Temple too and I think I’ll stick to alcoholic beverages. 😅
Date Rating: 🔥🔥🔥 out of 5. On July 4th, I matched with this dude Kwame. He’s 6’7” and gorgeous and… my complete opposite. That same day my friend Aubrey swore that my opposite would balance me out (so on brand for a Libra lol) so I took this guy who works the night shift, doesn’t drink or party, and has abs that I could wash my makeup brushes on and gave him a shot.
Let me just say that I THINK someone is snitching! He’s only really available from 9PM-2AM so our date was at 10. He was super suspicious and asked me what I was doing before that (I was on a date of course). If in real life, one of your guy friends says he’s gonna date me don’t leak this blog until after 😂
Anyway. One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone says they have to tell you something… and then they don’t tell you. Don’t bring it up at all because my curiosity will get the best of me. He did that for the first ten minutes of the date. I quickly had to get over that and then it was smoother sailing. He’s very level headed and somewhat soft spoken. He’s also the oldest in his family so he carries himself with some confidence. I love that he’s passionate about his job. Just hearing him gush about it made me swoon 🥰
Then there’s the issue of his ex. It doesn’t bother me that he brings her up often; it’s that he compares her to me. I am very proud of my individuality. I am not like the next girl and you won’t find a duplicate of me. (You probably won’t find a duplicate of her either) To associate me with bad memories when we JUST MET is so deflating. I felt myself trying to advocate for how I was the opposite and it didn’t feel very romantic.
He invited me back to his place to “chill” and I had to decline. He did not kiss me goodbye so I’m taking that as an indication that he doesn’t wanna see me again; which is for the best I suppose. Opposites just don’t attract.
