What if he's genius? ...Unlike me.

Okay, this one is saturated with angsty mopey teenager-ness.

I met a guy on an online dating site for college kids. It's legit because you need your college email password. Yet I know there are loopholes and such. However we added each other on Facebook.

He's an engineering major. He wears rectangular wire frame glasses and has a carrot top. He's get brownie points for being atheist like me. Yet when I creeped on his Facebook, I noted he was good friends with a kid from my high school. I investigated further and I say some comments on a status. Jeez, I don't if it was the SAT vocab or what. But he might be a little too smart for me. I can't handle that because as an egomaniac I can't date someone who can articulate better than I can.

I meet him Friday for Middle Eastern food. Hopefully my illusions of him will be shattered after we shake hands.
