Eek! New thread! So sorry to have disappeared. Welcome to everyone that's recently joined in!
Since aino and gymlee asked (I posted in the old thread about a horrible date I went on)...here are some of the details:
: I met this guy at a bar. We talked a little....to be honest he (and his friends) seemed a little immature, but when he asked for my number I gave it to him. I figured he deserved a 2nd chance at a first impression, or that he wouldn't call at all. He did end up calling, and he wanted me to meet him at the same bar to hang out with his friends. Then he asked me to dinner beforehand. He's 33 (I'm 24).
Well, we met at the restaurant and things were...okay....the conversation was a little awkward at times (he actually made a see-food/seafood joke).
(I'm trying to keep this from turning into a novel. There were a lot of things that went wrong on this date, so I'm just writing about some of the big things)
We took separate vehicles to the bar. At one point he and I were stopped at a red light and when it turned green he actually peeled out
in his truck (on purpose, and he was watching me for my reaction. Was I supposed to swoon?). At that point I just wanted to go home. Instead, I went to the bar like I said I would.
His friends (6 or 7 people) were already there, and most of them were drunk. We were sitting in an outside area and in order to get to the main bar, you had to walk up some stairs. Well, one of the girls in the group kept looking up skirts as women walked up the stairs, and then telling the group what kind of underwear the women were wearing. Mature, right?
A large portion of the conversation was either Harry Potter, Star Wars, or World of Warcraft/dungeons & dragons/etc. I have nothing against those things....but I'm also not particularly interested in them. So I was really bored. At one point I actually took out my cell phone and started texting, because I felt so left out of the conversation.
I'm not sure how this next topic came up....but then some of the group starting talking about my date's back hair. (Don't know if he actually has any or not....but they started talking about it). Then the conversation switched to (my date's) *ss hair. Now, I do not consider myself a prude...but I was so
uncomfortable at this point. I didn't want to be around them or listen to any more of their conversation.
So I walked up the stairs (careful to hold my skirt since I didn't want that girl looking up it) and sat at the bar to talk with my friend that works there. I didn't want to be rude to my date, but after everything that had happened, I just stopped caring about if I offended anyone or not.
My date texted me a few days later asking me what happened. I told him everything that went wrong on our date, and although he wants a "2nd chance at a first impression" I don't see that happening. (I did apologize for being rude by leaving them all though.)
So that was my date. I'm sure if only a few things went wrong it would have been okay, but the crude humor pushed me over the edge.
How's everyone doing? It's raining here now, so I'd really like to just curl up in a chair with a book. Need to exercise first. Also need to plan what I'm eating for dinner...
