"We met at Coffee Shop in Union Square.
Him: 'Hey so tell me about yourself. What would you like to drink? What do you normally drink at brunch?'
Me: 'I normally drink Champagne, but I heard the Mojitos are great here, so I will go with that.'
Him:'I'm on my fourth cup of coffee.'
Me: 'Oh, rough night last night?'
Him:'Yeah. So, what else? What else?'
Me: 'Ummmm.' (He kept saying 'what else' like to hurry the convo or something—it was really weird)
Him:'Ugh, do you know anything? OMG, look behind you, I've been trying to figure out these people since I got here.'
Me: 'Hmm, interesting group. It looks like they are DJs.'
Him: 'So, what else? Where do you go to the gym? I go to NYSC.'
Me:'Sports club L.A. I used to go to NYSC, but I live right next to L.A.'
Him: 'Oh, strippers work out for a discount there, don't they? I guess it makes sense. Get a little work out in, go right to work in your little outfit. What do you think about that?'
Me:'Um about what?' (Honestly...I had to play dumb at this point because I knew this guy was weird.)
Him: 'That life, you know being a stripper, getting a discount in the gym. How cool would it be to work out and go straight to work?'
Me: 'Umm.' (Is this guy really asking me these questions? How am I supposed to respond to this?)
Him: 'So, what else? Your turn!!'
Him: 'I hate moments of silence. So, tell me about reality shows you watch?'
Me: 'Oh I like Bethenny Frankel...I like The Voice!!'
Him: 'Do you watch Idol?'
Me: 'Nah, I like The Voice. It's diff—they don't judge you and the judges don't face the singers.'
Him: 'Should we turn around?'
Me: 'Haha' (eye roll)
Him: 'I'm gonna use the little boys' room. When I come back, it's your turn to ask me questions!'
Me: 'Oh god.' (eye roll...I'm exhausted what is with 'what else'? Why can't he let the conversation just flow?)
Him: 'Okay, whaddya got?'
Me: 'Umm.' (but before I could get a word in....)
