Around 4:45, he called to let me know that he was stuck in traffic and would be there in ten minutes. The car ride over there was quiet, which was a little awkward.

We met at his friend’s house, had a drink or two, then carpooled to the zoo. We picked up our free VIP passes, and headed inside.
There was a lot of drinking, a little music, and somewhere in there he kissed me. Once the ice was broken, we were very comfortable together and had a great time.
It was a little weird having our first date be a group-thing with nobody else on a date, we went with it.
