A couple years ago I was very single and dating all kinds of people from all areas of my life, including people I met on the Internet. I went on one date that wasn’t bad or good. We never contacted each other again. Just last week, I was working at my fancy waitress job and had a guest who looked very familiar. We tried to figure out how we knew each other, and once I walked away to get drinks for the party, I immediately recognized my guest as the boring-date-man from an online date.  I chose not to share my new enlightenment. Later that night I got a text from “Brian,” (I still had his number in my phone!) saying he finally figured it out! Just goes to show how boring seldom changes.
