Here’s What You Do
Meet him at a place you won’t be ashamed of when you tell the story later. My friend met his boyfriend on Grindr, but he tells everyone they met at the coffee shop near Park Sans Souci where all the employees are brooding and starving and the biscuits are delicious. Don’t be like my friend. Instead, go to places that don’t embarrass you. Better yet, just avoid places that don’t fit the way you picture it. You might not think you have control over how you meet people, but you do. And when you meet him, you’ll know you’re supposed to be meeting him. Maybe you’ll feel it on your skin, or in your dick, or in your stomach. But somehow, someway, you’ll know this is happening for a reason. And don’t lie to him. I heard somewhere that strangers lie to each other three times within the first ten minutes of meeting each other, so try not to do that when you meet him. You don’t have to be clever or charming right now, so just focus on telling the truth.
