I asked if he was free later that evening for a drink. I got to the pub convinced I wouldn’t find him inside. Not only that, but he seemed even more attractive in real life.He was extremely polite and gent-like, funny and frankly not at all what I was expecting, if I did have any expectations.
One man posed the question ‘since when is being argumentative a bad thing? Another claimed I read like a female version of him.On a night out, I often have major self-doubts ringing in my ears if someone tries to chat me up.I’m often incredibly dismissive of men who appear interested because there is an automatic presumption on my part that the person has no idea what I’m really like and that the second they do, they’ll be running in fear.Having to sit and think about why I do certain things both opened my eyes and made me feel even more hopeless than I’d originally thought.But the minute my profile went public, I felt a wave of liberation and nonchalance about it all.
