He Danced Like A Flamingo

My worst date was with a guy who seemed rather strange, but at that time (I was under 20). I was willing to give a guy a chance regardless of what my gut instinct was telling me. So we meet at a place with live music and a few people are dancing. I love to dance, so I said, hey, let’s dance. Big mistake. He resembled a flamingo, arms outstretched and lifting each knee to hip level before flinging the lower leg forward, like some automated kicking motion. He just kind of pranced around like this, in a “rhythm” that had nothing to do with the music. So, I’m thinking, ok, he’s not much of a dancer, not a huge moral failing or anything like that–but when we sit down (I was quick to say I needed a drink, so we could get off the dance floor before he hurt someone), he goes on and on about how much he loves to dance and he’s so glad to meet a girl who loves to dance, and how we could go dancing each night. He was completely uninterested in anything I had to say, asked no questions, talked about himself nonstop, and kept trying to get me to commit to joining him for dancing for the next several nights.

I could not get out of there fast enough and was so glad I had–as always–driven myself to this first date. He stalked me for a while at work so I quit the job I had (near where he lived) and made sure not to go to that part of town again. Fortunately, he was not smart enough to find me again. I learned to listen to my gut after that!

You’re A Big Boy Now

I am so sorry so many people had so many bad experiences… My worst date was last night. We met for a drink at a local bar. We live 5 minutes away from each other. The place was 8 minutes away on Rt 9. He never confirmed the date and I had to call him 20 minutes before the date to see if we were on. Anyway… Got to the bar exactly 10 p.m. the time we said we were going to meet. The place, I thought was a little noisy and I thought once he came here maybe we would go to a more quiet place… This jerk called me off the hook..saying he is lost. Texting me and calling. Finally I tell him exactly where the place is and he wants me to stay on the phone with him until he arrives… I told him no. You are a big boy now and find the place… So he arrived a half hour late… Never apologized and proceeded to insult me and judge me the whole hour we spent together. He never offered me a drink and finally said he was leaving. I said I was staying and I just thank the Lord the his true colors came shining through on this one time meeting!! Sometimes people are deceitful…because on the phone he was very pleasant and complimentary!
