But...mmm...not getting good vibes from this woman.
Me: Hi (name). Not sure if the embassy thing is a joke but it reminds me of the US embassy in London. Some guy behind blacked out glass and just weirdness abounds. So how are you finding fabulous (village). I've never heard of the place.
Her: Hey the embassy is real and the blacked out glass guys are also real haha. But I worked there for a short time (1 year). And didn't like it very much. If u never heard of (village) how do u know it's fabulous
(22 hours later)
Me: It's still good good experience. Something interesting to put on your CV. I just assume that (village) is fabulous. All of these small towns in Scotland are. So what is there to do in (village)? I see there's a castle. That's cool. How long have you been here?
(2 days pass)
Me: I'm going to (village) for work on Friday. It's a sign. Want to do something?
Her: Maybe What's your plan on Friday?
Me: Going to work...court finishes at 4.00...sometimes much earlier. I don't know when it will finish until on the day but never past 4.00. We can go to a pub. Or coffee if it's earlier in the day. What's your schedule like on Friday?
Her: I am thinking about dinner. But only if u have time. Or some drings at 4 can also do.
She was never going to reply to that message about what there is to do in her village. And when I suggested meeting up, she wasn't completely sold on the idea. And then she suggests getting dinner rather than drinks. This costs more.
It's a bit weird, isn't it? Well, I suppose the dating experts at TIY -- TMB are few. So I'll just tell you that it's weird. A dinner is a date. And I don't like talking and eating. And eating out generally...I don't do well. Particularly so on these internet dates. I can't eat much.
That said...I suppose I have had dinner a few times with these internet women. It never went well, but coffee and pubs never went well either. So I don't think it's the venue that's the problem.
