Recent Weather Has Convinced Me of a Deep South Pole
January 23 is no ordinary day because, when written in numerical form, translates to 1/23. Or, in another sense, 1-2-3. This brings us to dating, which can be absolutely wonderful when everything clicks and a genuine connection is being made. However, there are also those occasions when things do the polar opposite (sometimes even during a polar vortex…coincidence?) and not even a Boy Scout could start a fire between the two of you.
Returning back to the forever popular sequence from above, dating is not always as easy as 1-2-3. It’s exciting, yet awkward. Sometimes, there are similarities between you and your date with a few things to discuss for a substantial amount of time. The date’s going great with a nice flow of conversation and subtle flirting. In this case, any moments of silence just seems natural and appropriate. Sometimes though, there are dates when we can basically witness our words hit a brick wall in the middle of the table.
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
This silence is deafening and not natural.
That’s okay. It happens. Not everybody is perfectly compatible. That’s, in fact, why we date. But, for 99% of guys out there, regardless of whether the date went perfectly well or badly, we’ve experienced one of those moments when we’re sitting in our cars and we calmly reflect on the night and our articulate, purposeful and always engaging conversation with a beautiful girl sitting across from us illuminated by the gentle glow of candlelight.
Guys flipping out and overreacting to every seemingly stupid, non-suave thing we said or did on a date…that’s as easy as 1-2-3.
