Toned Folk Sean: I was pretty comfortable going into the date, but I was a little anxious on who I was going to meet.
Liz: I was pretty calm for the situation – what was the worst that could happen?
Sean: I arrived at 7:05 and she was waiting at the bar.
Liz: He seemed calm – or at least he fooled me.
Sean: She was a pretty girl with an athletic body that looked very nice in her black dress.
Liz: Sean was attractive, tan, and you could tell he was in good shape.
Just for Kicks Sean: We tried to figure out how we matched up and realized athletics was a common bond. Also, it was funny that neither of us had ever gone on a blind date.
Liz: We covered the standard conversation bases with talk of family, travel, job, etc. I gave him a hard time for canceling our date the first time around.
Sean: We talked about where we were from, college, soccer, and lacrosse, along with our jobs.
Liz: He plays professional lacrosse and I play soccer year-round. We’re both from the Boston area and hang out at similar spots.
Sean: I also discovered her sister filled out her questionnaire for her – ha-ha!
Liz: I would say that both Sean and I have easygoing personalities, which made it easy to feel comfortable with one another.

Liz: No groundbreaking epiphanies here; I was just along for the ride and enjoying the night. There was definitely an energy over the excitement and randomness of the evening.
Entourage Sean: We headed down to West End Johnnies to catch the end of the
Liz: It was nice he was willing to introduce me to his friends, who were a good time.
Sean: After the Celtics game, I drove her back to her place. I asked for her number and gave her a hug and kiss on the cheek.
Liz: His friends were heckling us in the car, so it was entertaining and great comic relief to a possible awkward moment.
Post-Mortem Sean says: B
Liz says: A – good times all around
A Second Date? Sean: I would like a nightlife setting rather than a dinner date. I think both of us would be more comfortable in that setting.
Liz: Sean was cool – I think we’ll see each other again.
