Twitter Dating #4: "OMG I'm totally DOING IT with @--- RIGHT NOW! After all, he DID spring for dinner & movie & you should see size of his c
(ed. note: Aw, too bad! That one must have been over 140 characters)

Twitter Dating #6 (the next morning): "Hm. Daylight changes things. & now he knows where I live. I might have to move."

Twitter Dating #7: "Unfollowing/blocking @---."

The end.
