#WeekendCoffeeShare–The Obligatory Post-Date Update and Other Stories

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m feeling much better than I was last week at this time. After spending half the day on Monday in bed, I forced myself to get up because I had dinner plans with a friend and, after a good night’s rest on Monday night, I felt much better on Tuesday.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you remember that post about birth control that I wrote a few weeks ago? Well, it was all for naught. In the end, I didn’t get any lecture about going off of birth control, though that is probably mostly because my doctor read through the wrong file before coming into my appointment and totally thought I was someone else. He apologized when he realized the mistake and I truly do think he felt quite terrible. I admit, it did feel a bit impersonal, being asked about someone else’s recently inserted IUD and someone’s job, but I guess doctors are still people too, and mess up every now and then.

Okay, so I still got a lot of satisfaction from writing that post, so it wasn’t actually all for naught. The point is, my doctor had no idea who the heck I was at my appointment. Makes for a bit of a good story, eh?

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m only realizing now how much I have to do for Thailand still and have been busy trying to figure everything out. So, that’s a thing I really have to keep in mind these days.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m actually really concerned about this technology dependent world we live in because, yesterday at work when my coworkers found out I had a date AND that I met him in person, they were all astounded–you mean you didn’t meet him on Tinder/Facebook/the interwebs in general? You mean people still meet other people to go on dates with in person these days?

UM…YES!  I know meeting people in person can be nerve racking at times, but it is possible, people and yes, it still does happen. Perhaps if we weren’t all staring at our phones/a screen of some sort for 75% of our waking hours, we’d all have better luck meeting people in person. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather meet someone in person as opposed to online. But that’s just me.

Okay, rant over. Moving on.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that, speaking of my date, it was quite lovely last night. He was really nervous for most of it, I could tell, but we have quite a lot in common and it was an overall nice time. We went out to dinner at a nice little cafe and then went for a walk around one of the lakes in Minneapolis and just chatted. It was a beautiful night. We are planning on spending more time together in the future.

If we were having coffee, I’d be about ready to finish off my portion of the coffee share–and I’d be ready to ask you, do you have anything to share over coffee?

  1. Sounds like you’re in better spirits! I’m happy that your date went well, and I do agree that meeting people in person is a nice way to take a break from technology!

    As for myself, I don’t have much to say over coffee (or water, as I would prefer) this week, but it’s been relatively smooth sailing, thank you very much! I wish you a pleasant week! 🙂

  2. I would always prefer to meet someone in person rather than online, but as someone who doesn’t really even like leaving the house, it’s not going to happen any time soon! Glad to hear you’re feeling better!


    1. I’ve never looked into online dating before as it’s really just something that’s never interested me, but I do understand it can be convenient for some people. I just thought it was SO annoying that my coworkers thought it was the most amazing thing that I had met someone in person. Hence, the mini rant.
      Thanks! Glad to be feeling better, too. 🙂

    1. I’ve actually never dated anyone online. It’s something that’s never interested me. My roommates last summer tried to fix me up with an OKCupid and I was like, “hell nooo!” I think it has to do with my personality, but online dating has never appealed to me.
      That said, I’m really glad it went so well, too!

  3. Yay! Happy for your Britta. Hope you get to see him again soon. Meeting someone in person IS the way to go, no matter how old fashioned it may seem.


    1. I don’t think it’s old fashioned at all. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s normal…I’ve never been interested in online dating, though, and always have thought it was a bit of a strange way to meet someone.

      1. Haha, I agree! I don’t understand how its become so normalized these days. It just seems so weird and unnatural and impersonal and, well, you said it…creepy!
