First date confusion, should I get another chance?

I met someone on an online dating site and he invited me for drinks. I told him I couldn't go because I was still in a different city as I was being relocated (to his city) for work. My relocation process took about three months and during this entire time, we spoke over email and Skype, and he kept asking me when I was coming and he invited me for dinner by the time I would finally arrive.

He still did not accept my share and we agreed on having a drink in another place to calm both nerves a little bit.
There, the conversation went back to normal and he started talking about his brother and I asked a clarification question about it. It was his turn to be upset: I would int

  • You sound intolerably uptight. I would have walked out on the date and hired a hooker for the evening, but that's just me ;)
