(quote) Anna-1061976 said: I can definitely contribute to this post. My worst date was also a first date, and also with someone on another dating website. He asked me out for coffee and I said yes. As soon as he saw me, a look of obvious disappointment was on his face. To make matters worse, he kept pointing to another Asian women (and yes more attractive) within our vicinity and repeatedly kept saying "I really thought you were that girl." Then as I proceeded my way to get some coffee, he declares "I want ice cream. I don't drink coffee." Come on now! Why ask me out for coffee if you don't drink coffee? I would've said yes to ice cream. Then as we sat down, he plops his huge backpack in between us and doesn't even turn his chair to face me. I'm a very patient women and this just irked me even more. I initiated the conversation and all he did was eat his ice cream. He gave one word answers and didn't even bother to ask me anything or comment on anything I had to say. I was practically giving a soliloquy. Then exactly 30 minutes later his phone goes off and says that he has to go. He didn't even say goodbye or thanks for meeting me, he just stood up and said he had to go and then left. I was just stunned and kept thinking, did this just really happen? So after our "date", I ran errands and guess who I bump into again? We were both crossing the street going opposite ways and I just looked at him and went my merry way.
You ARE a patient woman.....he wasn't worth 30 minutes.
I think I told this one already, probably in the Men's Discussion Room, but here goes: many years ago, at a party, I ran into a woman on whom I'd had a crush-from-afar even earlier than that - back in highschool. Anyway, seing the hand of fate in this, I asked her to dinner (not the best first date strategy, IMHO). She said that would be fine as long as it was 'early'. So, this being summer, we ended up dining in a restaurant while the brilliant late-afternoon sun blazed through the window. Towards the end of this fairly brisk encounter she said, "Well, I have to be going. I have another date tonight". And after a brief look into her purse she added, "I don't think I have enough cash for a cab to get me there. Could you lend me some?".
