Can you help me find this vaguely-remembered creative essay about dating that was published on The Awl (or similar) maybe a year ago?

It, or at least the beginning of it, was written in the second person (probably). The essay started off with two people meeting up for a third date after (I think) sleeping together on the second. There was a nice description of the awkward greeting moment, where one person goes in for a kiss on the cheek and the other goes for the lips. And... that's about all I've got.
I'm pretty sure I read it in the summer of last year.
I remember it being on The Awl, but it might have been on some other similar internet place (like The Hairpin or Thought Catalog, although I've checked both with my vague search terms with no success). Come on, MetaFilter, you're good at this!
