fully expected this to end with "and then she saw my pony avatar on my internet spess shits forum and left in disgust"Alright, this isn't an emo-post, but more a success-post and realization post.
Like so many other young professionals in Stockholm, I peruse tinder. Not in the hope of actually meeting the mother of my future children but more as a distraction and the occassional fuck-session. But for once, something serious and good might actually be on the hook. 27 yo, 175cm / 5'7½", guess 55kg / 120 lbs, brunette, very pretty.
Lengthy pre-date daily conversation since we both traveled alot, but after a month we meet for drinks. All goes swimmingly, time flies and all of a sudden the hotel bar is closing. Quick kiss and the promise for a second date. The day after she texts and asks if I'm free a couple of nights later, so a second date a few days after the first one. We have tapas, talk (she mentions wanting to see my apartment after talking about all the renovation I've done), leave the restaurant and go to the subway where we stand around kissing for a few minutes. Decide to grab another glass of wine at a random bar, talk and kiss, after which I ask if she wants to see my apartment (smooth call-back), which she naturally wants to. The day after I think I score serious bonus points for making scrambled eggs and bacon and fresh pressed juice (yes, I have a juice presser and fruit).
Third date a few days later, breakfast/morning coffee, and it just feels natural. Her shifting my arm so I'm holding her over the shoulders, the talk, the silences that are never awkward.
I could seriously fall for her if I haven't done so already, and I think she's absolutely smitten with me as well. It's the full shebang with several texts per day, snapchat, what have you. It's all very cutesy I have to admit.
Too bad she's left this Thursday for Kenya & Tanzania for a month to do work on her MBA thesis.
Expect serious sad emo posts if the worst comes to pass and things die off, but atleast there'll be on-topic posts instead of goddamn fatty nerds wearing hats for fatty nerds.
