Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing.
I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.
I'm 5-foot-10, and I've always had a thing about height, and I saw this guy with a really sweet, open face, and he was 6-foot-9, I was like, , and one of my favorite sentences ever, "If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of the machines that registers earthquakes tens of thousands of miles away." And he responded and said that he actually had a sweatshirt.
About three weeks into things, we were eating dinner at a restaurant in Brooklyn when I realized I was just so infatuated with him.
I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there's a 13-year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart.
So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.
But I met a bunch of really interesting, great guys, who I still keep in touch with — it's hard to be real friends with them, but we're pretty friendly.
I've set up some of the guys on dates with my girlfriends.
