Maybe the Spotted by Locals team should open a new subpage just for my Tinder-related spotting. Since I only discovered its potentials not long ago, there will be plenty more of these first-date-articles coming in soon.
One of the recent ones happened last week and it was in this bar right here. We agreed to meet in front of the place at 20:00. As I was tied up with something, I had to postpone it for a half an hour. Long story short, I ended up waiting for her, walking around the bar, having a smoke and day-dreaming at night for the next half hour. The reason was a common misunderstanding. OK, maybe she forgot about the postponement.
Well, we had to break the ice, so 2 glasses of red wine were ordered. The waitress was very nice, she even found a bottle of wine which wasn’t even on the menu. You know the feeling when you talk and talk, searching for an interesting topic to spark up the conversation. Well, we were doing the same. We stopped looking for it, took another sip of wine and then it just hit us. You’d never guess – feminist theory! Her being a social work student and me being an aspiring writer, as well as a part-time philosopher… it struck a chord.
Long story short, the bar’s cosy late-night atmosphere and its comfy chairs helped us open up and let the words flow until the closing hours.
