About the date…
Four members of Männerchor amassed at a round table on new side before their date, Kraig Davis, strolled in wearing a beige thermal overshirt and a smile. After getting food, they conversed for about an hour.
How did the date go?
M: It started out a little disappointing when we learned he’d be going abroad next year. But then he showed us pictures of himself in middle school and we really clicked.
KD: Not as well as I’d hoped for. There were a lot of points where we had differing opinions and I accidentally forgot one of their names.
How was the other person?
M: A little overzealous at times, but he means well.
KD: I like some more than others.
What was the Peirce atmosphere like?
M: At first there was no one in here, but then it got a little chaotic. A bunch of people tried to sit with us and we had to turn them away.
KD: Too loud. Not as intimate as I wanted.
Would you go on a second date?
M: We’re planning our ideal apartment together, so maybe. We have a lot of rooms to figure out that we should discuss at a later date, maybe over coffee.
KD: I don’t know, they’re a little weird.
Sum up the date in five words.
M: Kraig messed up real bad.
KD: It wasn’t nearly intimate enough.
