My badass best friend went on 2 dates in 8 hours on Friday, and it proved to be a highly insightful exercise. My interpretation of her narrative here.
Male 1: Impossibly handsome and preppy. Lived in Newport for a time. Law degree. Boring, but did I mention his eyes?
Male 2: Corky, entrepreneurial spirit. Fun. Dedicated. Leader. Interests include, professional bowlers and Bernie Kosar.
Male 1 conversation: Gossip about mutual friends and acquaintances, money, power, etc etc etc.
Male 2 conversation: Hilarious banter, playfulness. Insight into his business, the challenges of maintaining customer loyalty and personalization while gaining popularity, including the superficial demands and uncomfortable political implications. Personal hobbies. Travel. Spontaneity.
Guess who she has already given the pleasure of a 2nd date? Sexy eyes is crying into his $30 martini.
