Another first date today. This one was a blind one, and I was more nervous than the last - even got to the movie early so I could have a nerve-reducing drink next door at Tapas Teatro.
She seemed happy to see me in the lobby of The Charles, but I couldn't read any signals during the movie. Because my mindset is still middle school, I like to do this sort of lean-over thing and see if my partner is willing to sort of lean towards me, so there's at least a little bit of contact during the movie. However, she had positioned her body away from mine, turned left, and the whole time to make myself feel better I was trying to tell myself that this was just by accident, that other people really didn't think as much as I do about these sorts of things. Later, she seemed to go more straight to the front, in a sort of neutral "I could let you rest your hand on my knee or not, really, I could take it or leave it" position, and I was able to position myself so I was sort of rubbing the side of jeans, but I was sort of straining because she was turned towards the front instead of towards me, and didn't make it any easier for me, so then I figured she just didn't want it. I gave up, and eventually just didn't care any more. I was hopeful she'd want to go to Club Charles afterwards for a post-drink or something, but she was very matter-of-fact when we left, shaking my hand and asking where I was parked (of course, the opposite of her direction) before I could say anything. And that was that. I do not think I will see her again.
Oh well. It still feels good to get out there. I've actually had a pretty active social calendar lately, and it's nice.
Match Point was pretty good, though. A little slow, though.
It's so disappointing that no Oscar movies are out right now. They should have been re-released because I would have been all over Munich, Good Night and Good Luck, and Walk the Line today.
