Online dating for well educated
A face-to-face first meeting allows you to get a feel for his personality, his sense of humour and his ability to converse in person, none of which can be determined on an app.
It's these detriments of dating apps that waste our time when someone we meet up with isn't at all who we thought they'd be IRL, and it's these wasted nights that motivate us to meet men out in the real world, instead.
Sometimes, only certain tables have an outlet to plug in your laptop, which is a great excuse to ask to share the table (since you need that plug).
