Alexis's Sides

Dan searches a dating website on his laptop. The title of the site: “Dates for the Different.” Dan hits enter and hopes for the best. We see ALEXIS (25, punk rocker, bright red hair, multiple piercings) pop up on the screen.

Dan enters and spots Alexis seated at a table for two. He’s nervous and sweating.
Dan makes his way to Alexis. She’s confused by his backwards- walking. He offers his hand. After hesitating, Alexis shakes it.
Dan sits down but Alexis remains standing. She takes a napkin and rubs his sweat from her palm. She looks towards the door.
Alexis shakes her head at Dan. It isn’t going to work. She leaves.
Dan is disappointed but still determined.
