So, I had a very nice dinner tonight, but it was not a date.
At some point in the evening I asked if it had been clear that my intent had been to ask her out on a date, and she said she'd been unsure, but that she was seeing someone and was thus unavailable. She did, cruelly I'll note, mention that - at the time I left Amazon - she /had/ been available. Tsk.
So, we had a very nice dinner and talked about Amazon and Popcap and various random things, and it was very nice, and then we went home. We both agreed we should do this again.
