Him: So, do you have any siblings?
me: Yes! I have a sister who lives in NJ.
Him (staring, unsmiling): *crickets*
I kept looking at my watch and saying "Don't you have to go back to work now?" He said, "I'm good! I told them I'd be late!"
When the torture finally ended, I realized when I got home that I stank like rotting salmon and goat curry (even though that was not what I actually consumed). I aired out my car, took a shower and immediately threw everything into the wash, even my boots & jacket. I felt robbed of a leisurely afternoon off.
The evening date was with someone I just met the day before for a quick coffee. (Both of us had gotten small drinks to make it fast and then enjoyed the conversation so much, ended up chatting for 3 hours.)
Dinner was a completely different experience than lunch. Date #2 has a very calm and sweet demeanor and carries himself with confidence. He also seems kind. We closed out the restaurant chatting and then sat in the parking lot laughing at funny videos. Date #3 will be tonight.
