[Note from Jenn: Last week I introduced Avra as our dating blogger. You can expect to hear from her most Fridays, sometimes with longer posts and sometimes with a moment from the front lines of dating over 40, like today.]
I met a guy for a date a few days ago. I had talked to him on the phone for about an hour a few days before the date. He seemed intelligent and well spoken. He had a social worker type of job. I had the feeling he was quite down to earth.
I didn’t however think about how that should influence what I wore on the date. I showed up in a cute vintage tight leopard sweater over a black lacy camisole and jeans. He was definitely a granola guy.
He took one look at me, then one look at his watch – and it was all over as quickly as the drinks went down!
