Apparently I either rocked the last five messages, or I picked better targets. I got four replies. One of them doesn't count since I accidentally messaged Isaac, but that's still more than twice my usual response rate.
I'm meeting someone tonight for coffee. And I don't know if we'll get along, and if we get along I don't know if we'll be interested in anything beyond hanging out sometimes for coffee. Maybe it will all end badly. But right now, it's only possibility. And that's exciting. His name is Nick.
