Okay, maybe that title is a bit melodramatic, but when you're sixteen and eager to find true love, a disappointing date is like a kick in the solar plexus.
And I had many a non-perfect date back in my day. Ah, I remember one classic date, where I was totally, utterly crushing on a guy--I thought he was so freaking cute, and I couldn't believe we were going to go out!
We went to see some movie, laughed and talked and enjoyed our time together, and at the end of the date...he shook my hand.
Yes, SHOOK MY HAND.
Shaking hands to cement a business merger? Rock on. Shaking hands when introducing yourself to someone? Absolutely.
But to end a date? He might as well have chucked me on the chin. LOL.
Well, needless to say, that was our first and last date.
I've had other disappointing dates, too, as well as outright bad ones--like the time I was stood up for two hours on a double date--and when the jerk finally showed, he spent the whole evening making fun of me with my friend's date...then, had the nerve to ask me at the end of the night, "So, am I getting a kiss, or what?"
RIIIIIIGHT. What a pair on that guy!
So, anyone else have any really disappointing or bad dates to share? Commisserate with me!
