I had been so conditioned to be blown off, I thought he was politely breaking up with me.So we didn't really talk for a couple days, which felt like a long time. I realized he wasn't trying to end things; he did want to keep dating.Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later.I gave him my phone number and he texted me, "Hi, Hannah, it's Matt." And I said: "Which Matt? We went on a hike, and we put wine in water bottles and had a little picnic at the end of the hike.
We're thinking about how and when we'll tell our families.We had such a great time, we went to about seven different bars afterward.About three weeks into things, we were eating dinner at a restaurant in Brooklyn when I realized I was just so infatuated with him.But [I] get panicked when I think about the fact that he lived literally one mile away and we had no friends in common. Six months after moving to New York, I started online dating.Not necessarily because I really wanted for find a boyfriend; it was just me just wanting to go on dates because they were so much fun.
