Lights, Camera, No Action (Online Dating Part 2)

Okay, round two.  E-Harmony’s second offering was a little better but still disappointing.  And confusing. 

 I can’t remember who made the first move but we exchanged e-mails and had a couple long phone convos and some texting.  He worked nights for the local news as a video editor.  He seemed cool enough.  We decided to meet for lunch because of his work schedule.  I took my lunch hour and met him at a Mexican restaurant.

 Again, he’s not bad looking and has a little bit of lisp.  From his eagerness on the phone and over text, I was a little wary.  He wanted to talk to me so much that he called during his dinner break and I listened to him crunch on tacos at Taco Bell.  I thought he might want to jump into things too soon and I was not down for that.  It was the most boring date.  I couldn’t think of anything to say and if I did start a topic, he would latch onto it and then I couldn’t get a word in.  It was mercifully short because I was on my lunch hour.  As we’re walking out, he will not stop talking.  I don’t even know what he was saying.  I tried to tell him I had to get back to work but I don’t think he heard me.  I finally just wandered over to my car and he drifted toward his, still talking.  What the hell?  By the time I got back to work, he had already texted me saying he had a great time.  I said I had a good time even though that wasn’t strictly true.  He texted me again that night and I responded.  I was willing to give it a second date just in case but then nothing.  He just dropped off the face of the earth.  Really strange.  Maybe he wasn’t over-eager.  Maybe he was just crazy.
