Thanks to all you on GT who encouraged me to respond to my OK Cupid correspondent with the Phd.

First off, I did contact him first and received a response almost immediately and far better written and charming than I could have ever imagined albeit chock full of high brow cultural references. (I liked it). It sort of blew me away, this does not happen often.

We've continued to correspond and he suggested a date. Meeting for coffee tomorrow. I can hardly believe it!

I should emphasize that I have done OK Cupid on and off for about the past three years and never gone on a date with anybody from this website because no one really seemed all that interesting.

I hope I find him as cute and charming in real life! (His got these Tom Hardy like lips, oohlala) And I hope he finds me attractive too. I haven't been this excited about a date in... years. I haven't even been on a date in five years!
