A MAN who has casually arranged his third date on a Saturday night when the previous two were midweek genuinely believes she will never suspect.
34-year-old Tom Logan has set up the date when neither party has any work commitments the following morning and is confident Sophie Rodriguez will not wonder why.
He said: “Our first date was on a Monday and I suggested just meeting for coffee, making me look super keen and not like someone who needs alcohol involved. Strategic.
“Once that one was quickly dispensed with, but still counts, our second was on a Thursday at a restaurant. We had a bottle of wine but, like a gentleman, I didn’t make any moves and I think she was impressed with that.
“And lo and behold, here we are at our third date and it’s on a Saturday. Who would have ever seen that one coming? All those excuses about needing to be home because it’s work in the morning are right out the window.
“I even checked if she had any plans on Sunday while feigning interest in her life and she’s just ‘going for a run’. I stopped myself saying ‘you’ll be well exercised already, love’. Don’t want to give the game away.
“The whole initial meeting to shag trajectory – or IM2ST, if you will – has been exquisitely timed. I hope she appreciates that, and that I’ll never call her again.”
Rodriguez said: “A Saturday? For the third date in a three-date series? Why, how unexpected!”
