I tell her I don’t mind waiting around until she sorts out her issues, which I guess is an OK thing to say if I stop there.
We also discuss a plan of using “voice memo” on our phones to record the conversations we have, so we can review them later. *ding ding* Girl #2 B: Hi I’m Bryan, how’s your night going? The beaches, the surfing, the West Coast Rainforests. I’m going to do a Scandinavian tour in the summer, I’ve been meaning to do that for awhile.

Petersburg for awhile…all the destinations…5.5 weeks…I have lots of vacation saved up from last year, so I’m burning it up. Like I grew up in BC, but the jobs out here are so much better. The plant is in really bad shape, the catalyst moves around continually so lots of things break. I text her that night, and then later in the week to joke around.
At first I scoff at him, but then I think back to how I used to scoff at Online Dating. G: I work for Dow Chemicals B: Oh yeah, OK, so Dow Chemicals, so we’re kind of neighbours then. There is some decent banter, and she repeats that she really had a lot of fun on our date, so I am feeling optimistic about things.
