Date Lab: Does he pass the grandma test?

Amy: I think there was definite chemistry. I don't think it was overt flirting; it was just engaging conversation.

Jason: I tend to be a little bit shy. I'm a little reluctant until I know someone to start flirting. I wouldn't say this is a love-at-first-sight kind of thing, but that is not necessarily bad.

Amy: I finished my beer and said, "I think I'm pretty tired." We wrapped it up around 12:15.

Jason: I offered to give her a ride. We were both sitting in the car so it was a little awkward, but we had a quick hug goodbye and a kiss on the cheek. We didn't exchange information. One of those things I am absent-minded about. But we have each other's work e-mails and know where each other's offices are. I know how to get in touch with her.

Amy: [I'd rate the date a] 4.5. It was a good date to end a really good weekend. I'd definitely get together again.

Jason: I would give it a 5 [out of 5]. I would not say I am completely head-over-heels in love, but I thought it was really a great date.

Update: A week later, the two wanted to go kayaking but because of chilly weather opted for dinner and a movie, instead. They're planning a future kayaking date.
