It’s been a while since Victoria actually found a decent person to go on a date with. She never thought about using online dating as a way to find people—she always liked meeting people in person first instead of going off of a picture and a profile.
But after not having any luck with finding somebody who wanted more than just a fling, she decided to take to the online dating scene and give it a shot. After going through hundreds of left swipes she stumbled upon one profile that grabbed her attention.
Not because she wanted to potentially date this person, but more out of curiosity.
Between Victor staring straight across the table and Victoria covering her embarrassed face, there was a long standing silence at the table. Victor’s eyes were wide with amazement from hearing such a blunt question being asked from a stranger. Even though an appropriate answer would have been to ignore the question, he couldn’t help but to think about the right way to reply.
Victoria repeatedly apologized from behind her hands, “I don’t know what happened, I’m so sorry for asking!”
“I, uh… Hm. Well, this is a first.”
Victoria moved her hands and looked at Victor, “What do you mean?”
