Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Another great addition of the 7:15 Second Date Update was thanks to Jamie and Steve. Jamie told us about one of Steve’s hobbies and it is a creepy thing to talk about on a date. They decided that they would visit the amazing Bernini restaurant in Ybor City.

Steve reached out to us today about his date with Jamie. He stressed that he is familiar with our 7:15 Second Date Update and that he is not our typical guy. “I know you have some crazy people on here” he Steve but was adamant that he did not fall into that category. He told us that nothing out of the ordinary happened on the date. No drama, no exes, and no weird job was talking about.

When we got Jamie on the phone she that Steve was a nice guy but they probably weren’t a match. It was not so much anything Steve did but more about what he was in to. For example Jamie claimed that Steve was an obsessed murder show fan. Right off the bat we could see that it was probably a creepy thing to talk about on a date. According to Jamie, Steve was very detailed in his explanation of the content on the podcasts and shows that he loves. Jamie said that it was the only thing he could talk about. Oh and real quick referring to a homicide is not the best ice breaker.

Steve responded to Jamie’s story with very little argument. His thought was that they were talking about things that they enjoy and these are real things happening in the World. Now it should be said that some of the “True Crime” type podcasts and shows are some of the most popular in America. Would it be a deal breaker for Jamie who said that outside of being a little freaked out Steve was a good guy? Jamie let’s know in the video below.
