Yesterday I went on a date and it was very impromptu. Guy (to be known henceforth as Pitas, because that's what we ate) asked me if he wanted me to have dinner and I didn't have any plans so I agreed to it. It's about going along with the moment, I thought.
We spent about half the time driving around trying to find someplace to eat, and then we ate and the food was good, and the conversation was good, but there was no chemistry. Also, Pitas was shorter than I am, even though according to his profile he'd be a bit taller. I've dated shorter guys before, but it's annoying to expect someone to be two inches taller than he actually is.
Then I went home and talked to Pitas on IM for a few hours. I think perhaps I'd like to be friends with him, but not continue to date him. I'm not sure how to go about this. Should I say something to him now? Would it be bad of me to go out on another date, or could I chalk that up to "testing the friendship waters" more?
