I catch the flicker of a frown cross my face before I school it away. She must have caught it. I should have known better but I need more data and it's taking longer than I expected.
As I study her face for acknowledgement of my error, the information starts scrolling in, mocking my impatience. Reviews and star ratings, recommendations of similar partners. I begin to approach, skimming the content of the reviews as I cross the room. I freeze, sensing a similar increase in tension among others sharing the room.
They've got the same notification I do. An anomalously favourable partner-competitor ratio coupled with fairly dramatic promiscuity estimates at a nearby venue. It's a sensitive situation to navigate, as even those not subscribed to the somewhat exclusive feeds I (and evidently some others) have access to can sense that something is happening. I need to bail on this place and figure out my approach to the other without disclosing too much information through my behaviour.
