Your question was: Is match.com having connection problems now?.
You're not being prude. Yes, it's odd. Did he want to go out to a club or something? I'd probably do this with close friends but not a guy I'd never hung out with, and at midnight at that. Nah, I'd pass on it. I would have told him it's too late, and I'd rather get together earlier in the night for __(dinner, or whatever the case)_____.So, what did you end up doing?.
No, you are not a prude. I know that here in Florida places like South Beach dont first "get going" until about midnight. Everyone has their own way or their own biological clock maybe yours and his just dont fit that's all...
Thanks! He wanted to go to a bar or something I think. It was a Sunday night, so we didn't have a whole lot of options. .
Part of the problem was that his flight got in late. But still, I didn't feel wrong - like creeped out or anything - it just wasn't..."comfortable" maybe? I don't know. Anyway, I just told him that I ended up having family plans. But he seemed okay with it, and I think we'll try and go out again when I'm in town again next week. I've suggested a restaurant - so even if it's 10 or so it's still a legitimate activity. :-).
Thanks for your help. Clearly I don't ever go on enough dates to ever know what I'm doing!..
Yeah, I know what you mean about not being entirely comfortable. It's good you didnt get a creepy feeling. This guy must be very anxious to see you - in a good way =) - if he wanted to see you right after he just landed..
Having dinner is nice because then you get to chat some and you wont be too tired to go for that night cap..
Depends on his work schedule. If he works nights or swing shift on a regular basis, a midnight date using Match.com isn't odd at all. I work nights so I end up going out at those hours all the time. For me, a date using Match.com at midnight means I get to sleep in. But I do realize that most people aren't on a night schedule so I try to make dates for more normal times..
If he's on a more normal schedule, then you should be flattered that he still wanted to see you at that hour and after the frusteration of a late flight..
You are definitely not a prude for turning down a date using Match.com that late, especially if you have a more 9 to 5 lifestyle...
It was pretty late , especially if you felt it would have signals attached you weren't ready to send out... hopefully things can be better planned out next time.
