So do 12 construction workers on my way home and some weird asshole on the subway and Weird Barry who is always sitting outside my building. Sometimes it's just totally out-of-the-blue inappropriate touching, sometimes it's someone yelling at a waitress out of nowhere to the point where we're truly terrified, but the point is, between that and the street harassment, we might be a little on edge.3.

"He wants to go to Neil's on Third," we will tell our friends. He's really serious about you," they will say if it's a great bar, and, "Ugh, maybe you should just cancel," they will say if it's a bad one.

It'll easily take me 30 to 45 minutes to get there, and that's if all the trains haven't mysteriously shut down because of construction no one believes will actually ever fix anything, but that's a whole other thing. Which means we probably don't want to just "come over and hang out" for the majority of our first few dates.13.
