(Part 1) So, i recent met a new guy on an app Conversations via text and one long phone date have been going well. Here comes the actual plans for a first date at a gallery and maybe food afterwards. I asked him where is the gallery? All he tells me is that I can generally park at A Street and B Street or park by his place. Mind you, I haven’t met this dude in person yet. He’s virtually a stranger. I ask again where exactly am I going.
