Need advice: So I met this guy (who also happens to live in New York) via grindr at Southern Decadence. Over a night of causally meeting for drinks and getting to know him, I feel like I'm already falling for the guy. It's never happened to me before. I'm extremely rational and measured in my dating life (explains why I'm single). Regardless, he wants to be friends and / or friends with benefits. Definitely not looking for a relationship right now (he's recently single after 12 years). I'm potentially seeing him over the weekend during the day. Two things - what would be a good activity / date plan? And how do I approach this? I don't want to alienate the guy because of what I feel already (which realize can change over time). Thanks!
