I met a guy on OLD and we’ve been chatting for a few days. He suggested meeting up next week, I suggested a big town pretty much equidistant (not directly between us, it’s south for him and west for me). He has come back saying he wants to explore the pubs in his village where he just moved to today...
AIBU to think we should meet in a bigger town? Would you drive an hour to meet a man for the first time in his home town? I don’t know why I’m feeling weird about this but something isn’t sitting right with me!
He sounds lazy. If you're driving you won't be able to drink so what's the point of 'exploring the pubs' - unless he's planning on getting you tiddly, then 'Oh, whoops you can't drive home now you'd better stay over...'
Seriously though, if he won't compromise for the first date...? I wouldn't bother.
