blind date

I hadn’t shaved in a few days
but at least I showered

I keep telling myself I’m doing
so much better since

they talked me down

and now here I am
a few days later going on

a blind date

smelling somewhat delicious
and sporting a three day beard

as I wait looking out the front window
I keep asking myself

what the hell am I supposed
to talk about

january two thousand twenty

  1. Let your date lead the conversation. Most women value men that are good listeners. As common denominators appear, talk about them.

  2. small talk is so difficult. Listen or at least pretend to listen…will make the date happy 🙂
