Horrible stories about online dating
No cell phone back then, so I was stranded out at the reservoir with a loser who clearly had no respect for me. There was a huge filthy mess of dishes in the kitchen, and a mountain of dirty laundry in the bedroom."You can start wherever you want," he said, and flicked on the TV.
I felt beyond "used." I had to give plasma so we could go on this crappy outing and then I got sick so he proceeded to drink all the beer! ) I was very naive and I felt so embarrassed for him, that he thought that this was even remotely close to acceptable human behavior, that I downplayed the whole event and tried to pretend it had never happened. When I asked what the h--- he meant, he replied that in India, the women do all the cleaning, so I'd better get started. I did a summer internship at a museum years ago when I was in college.
"Erica" called my cell and said she was running about five minutes late, but would try to hurry.
I thought it was very considerate of her to call, especially since she was only running a few minutes late.
I offered to pick her up at her apartment, but, she said she didn't live too far from the restaurant where we were going to meet, so, she'd just meet me there after work.
I arrived at the restaurant first, and, was able to be seated right away.
Once the dinner was over, I said, "Well, it was nice meeting you all, but we should get going if we're going to make it to the theater in time for the show.""Erica" and her friends got quiet, and started fidgetting a bit.
Finally, the woman said, "Oh, I'll ask him, you two cowards."I was thinking, "Great, now they want to come with us to the theater." I couldn't have been more wrong.
He just said "Let's get something to eat." and lead me to the car.Now that I'm older, I realize the "scene" I should have made once we arrived at the blood bank and gotten out of the whole thing! He was the man, he had the plan for the date and I just went for the ride. After the term ended and I went back to school, I got a call from one of the researchers I worked with over the summer.He wanted to meet and have dinner because he was going to be in the city.Uh--no, I really just wanted to get to know you better, and, having these people around just makes it harder?Surprisingly, the dinner went fairly well, "Erica's" friends were pretty funny, and we laughed a lot.
