The Language of Love

Thanks to the magic of internet dating, two people in my social circle were matched together and went out for coffee. They weren't previously acquainted despite having a bunch of mutual friends (though it seems likely they've attended the same party at some point), and didn't realize how much their own circles overlapped until later in the date.

So fate finally brought these two together, right? Not exactly. Certain friends have been able to get both sides of the story on the blind date's dysfunction. The best snippet comes from the guy who, for clarification's sake, is white, educated, and a native southern Californian: "She asked me if English was my first language... twice." I think that's all you need to know about how well that conversation went.
