me: i need a fun setup. can you help me out?

me: you must
7:21 PM BOY: let me think on it
BOY: and, how do you define fun
a nebulous word really
me: easy going, easy to talk to, confident
thinks i’m cute
me: attraction’s nice, but not mandatory
7:22 PM BOY: just so long as he’s attracted to you
me: not to sound cocky, but that’s not exactly the most difficult thing
BOY: there ya go
you’ve got it, and you flaunt it
7:23 PM me: well, it’s not like i’m all that intimidating or inaccessible, either
and at this point, a date would be nice. he doesn’t even have to be emotionally available
BOY: right on all counts
7:24 PM what about OTHER BOY?
do you know him?
me: um, yes. what made you think of him?
BOY: single, fun…used to be in the [cool] ward
7:25 PM me: i saw him today, and he invited me to his bday party
he’s a cool guy
BOY: see what i mean
consider yourself self-set-up
you don’t even need my expert services
me: cop out
7:26 PM it’ll be fun
BOY: lemme think some more…just in case he doesn’t propose to you whilst he blows out his candles
me: no pressure
i know you’ll be thoughtful
BOY: now i will be
7:27 PM me: you’re a dork
BOY: i KNOW you’ll be thoughtful, BOY (WON’T you?_
me: i GUESS i was being passive-aggressive
7:28 PM when’s the date planned?
or is it planned
me: no date planned yet
just the bday party
so maybe something after that
BOY: wait, maybe i’m confused here
7:29 PM nothing planned…just want to be set up, right?
BOY: got it
when’s OTHER BOY’S bash
me: i haven’t thought that far ahead
BOY: what’s he doing?
7:33 PM i’m going to find someone for you
BOY: i actually have a really nice guy in mind
me: hmm. cool
BOY: if i could only remember his name…
7:34 PM i watched a football game with him last night
BOY: i’m not sure…maybe the upper east ward
me: family ward?
BOY: he used to be roommates in dc with one of my old hs buddies
7:35 PM i think he does finance or something
but, nothing less than a really nice chap
he’s in a family ward
probably my age
BOY: BOY2’s great

7:36 PM BOY: it was at his place however
7:40 PM BOY: BOY3 his name is BOY3
me: BOY3? [occupation]?

he’s a cool guy
7:41 PM BOY: and?

BOY: shall i press forward with the mission
me: sure. it’ll be fun

7:42 PM you should consider yourself invited

BOY: good for you
i’m going to the Red Bull soccer game
they should let you play
i’m on a team now
BOY: we got killed with a kapital K last monday
7:44 PM me: dude. i would have brought you some good luck
distracted the other team with a little leg
7:45 PM BOY: i think we needed more than good luck…although that would have been distracting to us as well…would have ended up in a 0-0 draw
me: where do you play?
BOY: [sports place]
7:46 PM me: would it be okay if i showed up sometime?
there’s not really seating
me: i see
BOY: but, i think the games can be watched thru the glass from a hallway
me: all righty then
when’s your next game/match?
7:47 PM BOY: tom night
me: cool. i’m going for a swim, then i might drop by.
do you go a whole 90 minutes?
BOY: no, 50
7:48 PM me: oh. OH

BOY: i’ve just started going there…so i’m not 100% sure
there are 2 next to each other
7:49 PM BOY: i think we are in the [area] which is furthest north
well, if i can’t find you, i won’t beat myself up
but if you lose, you can’t blame me
BOY: we are even then
