OK, so I went out on my first date with Cool-Guy-I-Met-Online (aka Matt) and I think it went pretty well! Way better than some other first dates I remember. No horrify facial features to politely not look at. No debilitating breath to contend with. No embarrassing, awkward silences to deal with. And I didn't put my foot in my mouth once! Nor did I drop anything onto my un-napkined lap or spill ranch dressing on my shirt. All in all, I was very proud of myself.
