How Can You Tell When You Are On A Date?
I had a nice co-worker who left our office and moved to a job in the City a few months ago. In February, he called me to schedule a dinner to “celebrate our new jobs.” Since then, our appointment has been moved around three times by virtue of scheduling conflicts we have both had. I am going to see him for an early dinner in Berkeley tonight. I told my co-worker about my dinner with this guy, and she insists that I have a “date” with him. I think this is “dinner with a friend,” because I am meeting my friend for dinner. I know I’m really out of practice, but wouldn’t I somehow know it if I went on a date? This was so hilarious I went around laughing to myself for a while this afternoon! But now, all of a sudden, I'm starting to worry, hoping that there are no misunderstandings, feeling self-conscious. Yikes. I’m too old for this “single” business.
