hebrew hammer

I had a great time on my date this afternoon. I thought he was cute, funny, intelligent. Despite this, I left feeling a little down. Toward the end of the date I think I felt some preemptive defensiveness. Either I got a sense that he wasn't as interested as I was or I am not used to feeling anything beyond neutral. I became very casual. I said, "it is too bad you live so far away," (he lives about 4 hours drive and was in to see his family), "but it was nice meeting you". He agreed and we parted ways. I did mention to him that next time he was in town he could call, but wasn't I again closing things off in a way? Was I not saying, nice meeting you, but unless you are back in town, there is no point? I don't know if I feel like he didn't like me or that I ruined it even if he did. I think I might email him to say thanks for coffee etc... I am not sure how, but I am willing to go out on a limb and give him the message that I would like to go out again, even if it means he may not take the bait or he may not feel the same way. What do I have to lose?

I won't bother getting into the list of things that weren't ideal because that is too easy for me. It is one thing I know how to do, but suffice it to say that for now, I was not put off.

I just got home from a friends where we watched The Hebrew Hammer. A great movie that every Jew should watch. I am going to have an annual Chanukah party and screening. Just imagine: latkes, gelt, manischewitz drinking games...
