So, I went out for drinks tonight with a friend from work who I'm really glad I met. She started less then 2 months ago but she's the kind of personality that's outgoing and warm and funny - the kind of person I wish I could be if I weren't so shy around people I didn't know. We were sitting in a meeting with her manager last week, getting into business when she turned to me and asked if I was seeing anyone because there was someone she wanted me to meet. No joke. Thank goodness AF, her manager, and I have a pretty friendly relationship because I would have been mortified otherwise.
Anyway, long story short, I met him tonight at one of the many trendy nightspots that singles often frequent in my neighbourhood and he was everything that she said he was - good looking, tall, suave - yes, suave, which, to my mind has a bit of a sleazy connotation which wouldn't be a long way off since he is a sales account exec but he's saved the ick factor because he seems genuinely considerate and tight with his younger sister, who is friends with my friend.
I have no idea if he knew what was up...but he seemed like a good guy, and if he wanted to get together with me one on one, I wouldn't be averse to it...but I can't say I'm overwhelmingly interested. I think it's the suaveness...he's a little too...slick for me. He picked up the tab for all his sister's friends, including me, which was very generous, but he just seems a little too polished. And to think that I thought that that was what I was looking for in a guy! Hmm.
