goes on a date that 20 year old me did not go on.

I forgot if I ever told you guys, but I met ex 6 weeks into my freshman year at college. (By coincidence yesterday was the 22 year anniversary of that date.) I didn't date other guys at school, although I had some admirers from the co-ed fraternity I was in. And maybe a hookup or two otherwise.

So, fast forward to last night. I had started talking to a guy from a dating Web site earlier this week, mainly because he liked some of the same bands I do. He also is an alumni, albeit a little older so we were never on campus together. After some back and forth, he wrote to me on Thursday night asking if I wanted to see some band in Philly. I didn't have anything to do, so I said sure. It was bound to be better than meeting flustered 50 year old guys for drinks.

We met outside of the venue, and it was literally a date from 1992 albeit with some wrinkles, gray hair and talk of our kids. He was cute. He was quiet and thoughtful, just like I remembered Rutgers boys to be like. He talked about music he loved and the job at a record company he had in college. He gave me a ride to the train station afterwards. That's the good news.

He's recently separated and in that trying to figure stuff out phase. He's got four kids, all older than 10, I think. He works for his Dad's company in Jersey, and he lives about an hour away from me in South Jersey.

So, I have no idea. I'd be pleasantly surprised if I see him again, but then again I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't. But it was nice to at least glimpse at the other path.

No, we would have stayed together forever and ever due to our love of music.

Anyway, the update is that we're supposed to get together again to maybe see some more music at some later date. As friends (as he had a nice time on Friday). We'll see.

I don't know why his wife left the marriage, we didn't get into that.
