This is a series of emails between me and Connor, a guy I met on

Hi Christina,

So here’s a thought. Since tickets are expensive, how about we do something different for our first date —get a drink, a coffee, etc. Then, if we seem like a fit for each other, I’ll buy us both tickets to another Celts game. What do you think?

Hi Connor,

That sounds great.  Let’s get a drink on Friday, March 29th.  What time works best for you?

Hi Christina,

Sounds good. How about 7pm at Asgard in Central Sq?

Sounds perfect.  See you then!

Hey Christina,

I’m sorry to switch gears, and I know it seems wayward of me, but I’d actually like to reconsider our date. I’m (shallowly) looking to meet taller women, and have decided to be a little more choosy.




It actually works out. He’s looking for someone who’s taller, and I’m looking for someone who’s not awful. Win win.
