Bachelor #3

Me: So basically you're a huge snob?
The Scientist: Yeah, pretty much. Is that a problem?
Me: Not necessarily. I guess it depends on whether my type of snobbery intersects with your type of snobbery in the Venn diagram of snobbery.
TS: My type of snobbery includes appreciation for the "Venn diagram of snobbery."
Me: Oh. Well then maybe we're good.

The Scientist: I'm really glad you emailed me. So... do you have any sort of rules about calling?
Me: What?
TS: You know... Three days? Two days? Is that too soon? Does that freak you out?
Me: Oh. That. I hate those stupid rules. I was just talking about this with a friend today, actually... She thinks three days is entirely acceptable and that even a week is standard. Maybe I've just lucked out with the guys I've gone out with; maybe that fact that most communication is through email now speeds up the timeline. Whatever--usually they email me either the next day or not at all. Why would any man who actually wants to see me again wait a week to contact me and expect me to go out with him again??
TS: ...
Me: So, um, to answer your question...
TS: I'd better email you tomorrow.


(I think I might actually like this guy.)

Was he impressed with your use of old-timey slang (assuming you used any of the old-timey slang we suggested)?

I would like an illustration of the Venn diagram of snobbery please. I assume that the overlapping part contains "knows that non-fiction means true."

He sounds like his humor coincides with yours.

Plus you already have a visual of telling your grandkids how you got together...

So, really, it's just a metter of setting the date. :)

A MATTER, not METTER

(oh please don't let me have another typo while correcting this typo) :)

Hee! Venn diagram of snobbery! You are too hilar.

lizgwiz said...

I think I like this guy, too. And I want to sit under the table on your next date and listen to the witty banter. Is that weird? ;)

Jess said...

I totally like this guy too. It's a Venn diagram made in heaven.

Poppy Cede said...

ZOMG HE JUST SAID HE LIKES YOU. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monkey said...

I already like him- hope he becomes a regular character.

Erikka said...

Awesome. Good for you!

Noelle said...

I am so glad you are going through all this dating stuff, so I don't have to! Oh, wait...

Carrie said...

"I hate those stupid rules." Oh, no. Who are you and what have you done with Stefanie??

Peter said...

Scientist guy sounds like he has the right chemistry with you. Good for you! Do I hear a echo in the chamber??

Lara said...

OMG!!!

Aaron said...

"Venn diagram of snobbery". Nice.

Stefanie said...

R--An illustration of the Venn diagram of snobbery WOULD be a good idea... I'll have to think about what would be included...

3Cs--As soon as I saw a second comment from you come in, I knew that's what it was going to say. ;-) I had to leave Noelle three consecutive comments the other day, because I kept having typos in my comments! I feel your pain.

NPW--Thanks. :-)

Liz--Weird? Maybe. But hell, maybe I could use the help!

Jess, Poppy, Monkey, Erikka, Peter, and Lara--Settle down, folks. It was one date. Glad to see you're all so excited to get me hooked up, though. ;-)

Noelle--You know me; I'm here to help (and commiserate, depending on the day).

Carrie--I have no idea what you're talking about, my friend. I have always hated that particular rule.

Aaron--Thanks. Our ads might as well have said, "Elitist nerd seeks same," right?

I like snobbery in a person. I think I like this guy too.

Whiskeymarie said...

Oh, and remember- DO NOT take him to the "bar of doom" we discussed previously.
Just don't.

Stefanie said...

Don't worry, WM. Wouldn't dream of it (unless I decide I want to get rid of him. That place is CURSED, I say.

L Sass said...

I like him so far!!
