iwakar. i agree with you.
my concern was not avatar's requisites for dating or his modus operandi of scouting out potential mates (it's amusing, but he can do whatever he wants, it's his life) but that he went ahead and planned a date with a woman who has already violated one of those requisites. why even dangle the context of romance in front of someone who he's already decided doesn't fit his standards? i understand it's just a first date and no one can predict how mutual emotions and dynamics will play out, but it is his mentality prior to setting up this date that i had an issue with. i, personally, would not want to go on a date with someone who has already mentally checked me off nor would i initiate such an encounter without sorting out my thoughts and emotions. what would be the point? otherwise, i'm glad he had a good time, that's what good conversations + connections are all about.
