Yep, got set up with some guy. It went like this:
Me: Hang out in bar for ten minutes, guy shows up. Awkwardly shake hands.
Order drinks, I get cheap swill, he gets fancy beer.
Me: So what kinda tunes are you into?
Him: "Hmmm, Whatever is on the radio I guess. I like pop music and techno. You?"
Me: "Oh I like all kinds of stuff but have a pretty big soft spot for like Thrash, Death, black metal, loud stuff, I also like some darker ambient stuff. All kinds of things honestly.
Him: Losing interest. "Oh yeah never really got into that kinda stuff, I'm not a big music guy."
Me: So what do you do for work?
Him: "Going to law school right now, working on becoming and environmental lawyer specializing in litigation." Goes on for about 20 minutes about law school stuff.
Me: "I'm a bowling alley mechanic. ^___^"
Him: "That sounds neat, Is that like a part time kind of thing?"
Me: No. :(
Him: "Ahh cool. Must make good money being a mechanic.
Me: "Enough to get by, and buy some toys."
Silence broken by drunk friends at bar talking to me about metal show we went to.
Friends leave, awkward small talk. Finish drinks.
Him: "Well I got a long drive home ahead of me, you have a great night."
Business like handshake.
Me: " Have a good one." Finish drink, stare at bar top, have another drink, stare at bar counter.
