With Valentines Day coming up it made me think about the dating scene and how I'm glad I'm not in it anymore. I've had some real "interesting" dates. Let me share a few.
Disclaimer: All the men shall remain nameless. As they should cause these are embarrassing.
Stinky Feet: Circa 2002 I went on a couple dates with a dude who seemed pretty cool. Finally invited him back to my apartment to watch some TV. He took off his shoes and it was all over. Could not WAIT to get him out of the house. Had to fabreeze the floor after he left.
Cheeseburger: Went on a date with this guy. Everything was going really good. My friends were having an after party and I asked him if he wanted to go. He did. So I get into his car and we head that way. About half way to my friends house I look over and dudes eating a CHEESEBURGER. Keep in mind that we had never gone thru a drive thru and the fact that we had dinner earlier that night. I was like "Where'd you get that cheeseburger?" and he said "From earlier, I kept it under my seat". The debate is still up in the air on whether using your car as a refrigerator in March is cool or not. Besides, who wants to eat a cold cheeseburger? Gross. No 2nd date.
Hates Everything: This guys was the "glass is half empty" type. He didn't seem to enjoy life very much. One night he wanted to try his hand at Chicago Style Pizza (keep in mind he was making it for me too). If you've ever had it it's pretty damn good pizza. Anyway, I asked him what he was all going to put in it and he started naming off things I don't like. Onion. Green Peppers. Yuck. So I asked if he could just put those items on half the pizza. He told me he could not do that because "THE PIZZA WOULD BE LOP SIDED". I went home.
Whether you're single, married, gay or straight we've all had horrible dates. I'd love to hear yours. Shoot me an email at email@example.com. Keep it short. Keep it simple. Keep it clean. I may just hook you up with a prize pack (certs, concert tix, CDs, tshirts, etc).
Happy Valentines Day! :)
