Two divorcees dating
So at 26, single for the first time in my adult life, I decided to spend the summer traveling. In mid-June, I landed in Edinburgh and started swiping.I matched with Nicholas* on Bumble, who was 29 and a pianist. He said he "liked foreign girls," but it never worked out because they eventually went home. On my last day, we hiked to the top of Arthur’s Seat, a hill overlooking the city. Probably not normal first date behavior, but this wasn't a normal first date.
He said his internship was busy but good, and that he was enjoying Seattle.
Nicholas said Will sounded like a prolific dater who’s been moving through girls for years — and that I was too sensitive for quick, casual dating.
He might be right about Will, but I didn’t agree with his assessment of me; I’ve dated other guys before and since Will, and I haven’t cared about anyone else.
He took me to a hidden “secret bar” for tinto verano (chilled red wine with lemon-lime soda) and vino de pasas (raisin wine) — both were surprisingly good.
That weekend, we went to a music festival with his friends and danced to DJs and bands.
