I know that you all are dying to hear about the Date with the Catholic. Suffice it to say that the date itself was really fun (in my estimation) and that a good time was had (I think) by all. We met for a drink at a cheesy establishment (in case I hated him, I didn't want to meet someplace better) and then moved on to a less cheesy one. We basically hung out and talked for like 5 hours. No awkwardness - at all. I haven't heard from him since we parted ways, and so I'm not sure what more to say than that. Between the two of us I think we broke many of the rules of online dating and maybe even some of the Roman Catholic Church.
New goal for self: Learn to end a date properly.
Incidentally, I may have the opportunity to work on that goal very soon, as the Businessman has asked to meet.
