There was definitely sexual chemistry there, but there was no innuendo coming from him like there had been before the date. What had seemed like one of the best dates I had ever been on suddenly turned into a total disappointment.
Cooper texted me after the date ended, which I received just after I got home. But after one nice, normal text, he started sending me innuendo-filled texts again. Again, like I had before our date, I told him directly but nicely that I wasn’t interested in that, at least not right away. The transition between the vibe of the date and the vibe of the followup contact was jarring. It was so disheartening to have been on such a great date and felt so connected and then have that happen afterwards.
I felt as though he assumed that because we went out once, it was then OK to jump right in again with the texts, as if I hadn’t been into them before the date purely because we had never met in person. I told him that my allergies weren’t an issue, and I’m used to being careful about what I order. I realized right away that we were just too different.He insisted and said that the reviews of the vegan place were really good.

We were driving downtown, and I was the one calling the other drivers names, and he was just like “It’s OK, it happens.” He also spoke really softly, and I was struggling to hear him in the small space of the car.I did not want to be the kind of person who complains on a date, so I said I was OK with the fact that we now had to go look for a third place.The next place we came across was busy, and there was a line out the door.Right away, the date had proven to be the best one I had been on in a while.
