The date from hell. Come have a laugh at my expense.

Monday, October 07, 2013

So a little over a week ago, I was super excited because I hate a date. A date! Yaaaay!

Well come have a laugh at my expense, because it was the date from hell.

So my date and I decided that we'd have a mini cookout. I told him I'd take care of the food, and asked him to bring a bottle of vodka and whatever chaser he'd like to have with it.

So here goes the fun...

Strike 1 - he shows up two hours late.
Strike 2 - when he gets to the cookout area he is HIGH AS A KITE. (disclaimer - I don't have a major issue when people smoke weed, but NOT ON THE FIRST DATE).
Strike 3 - He brought a half pint bottle of new amsterdam vodka, and half of it was gone! Ok, if you're familiar with New Amsterdam Vodka, the 750 ml bottle is generally about $15 so it's not expensive vodka. This probably puts the half pint bottle around $7 or $8. Then you drank half of it before you even got to the date? WTF?!?!?!

There is one final strike which I'll get to in a second - but for the "date" itself, it went okay. He told me his entire life story (and he has waaaaaaaaaay too much baggage for me to deal with, even if he didn't have all these strikes against him). He told me he was nervous, that's why he showed up to the cookout high as a kite (and probably drunk). He also told me I was being "secretive" since I wouldn't spill my guts as well - ahhhh whatever. But now for the final strike...

So when it's time for this fool to leave, he gives me a sob story and asks me for $20 for gas. Am I on punked? I can't make this stuff up... emoticon

Back to the drawing board...sigh. emoticon It's kind of funny though. I should write a book about all my bad dating experiences.

    Sounds like a real jerk . . . I wouldn't have even had the date at all with someone who showed up that late, it shows total disrespect.

    That's awful. I would have disappeared after the first hour of lateness. I don't think I've had a lot of bad dates, although I've had some awful boyfriends along the way. Bad dates are infinitely better, because it's a lot easier to make them go away.

You write well and are very pretty! Don't be so accommodating next time! 2 hours late is inexcusable - the rest is crazy. The weed thing - the first date is testing the waters, and he should be on his best behavior, so even if that's OK with you, I still say that's a huge NO on the first date.

    OMG!!! You are right, I did laugh (out loud!)
What a sad excuse of a human being! Well, at least he made it very clear to you that he is not bf material! or friend material.
I'm sorry that the experience was so bad. That really takes the cake.

    I like to just meet for a brief coffee date. It saves a lot of time and you learn a lot during that type of date.

    The good news is that you found this all out on the first date and not after he has been hanging around for awhile!

Better luck next time!

    I've had some bad dates but this one takes the cake lol ... the nerve of that guy. It's all definitely good material for a book - I've been collecting my stories for the past 11 years and still single.

    That's when you say GOODbye to BAD rubbish! It really is better this way. Way too many of these fools can put on a good face for a while and then once you are hooked on who they've been "pretending" to be, then they bust out with what an asswipe they really are. So at least you didn't waste too much time on this loser.

    Awww, he asked you for money?!!? Wow! That definitely belongs in a book somewhere-- I could add some dating disasters of my own to that book! But, I'm glad you were able to laugh about it and move on. Clearly not the best first impression for him to give.

    It is a good thing you have a sense of humour and can see past the drama. I am sorry things didn't work out but at least you can laugh at it. Good for you for taking the chance in the first place.
