Why my online dating career is over..

I talked to this guy for a while.

We met online.

exchanged numbers.

He seemed cool.

Single dad.

Hard working.


We planned to meet. Today. (as in Saturday.)

I took a shower.

Shaved my legs (not that I was planning anything.. ) but you know how much I hate to shave my legs.

Picked out an outfit

did my make up

straightened my hair.

An hour and half of prep time.

He picks me up.

Says I look nice.

Then nothing.


We get to the restaurant.


I talk.

Because I ALWAYS talk.

He doesn't.

I borrow a pen from the bar.

I try and play tick tack toe on a napkin.

Cats game

I try and play hang man.

He is not impressed.

Even less impressed when I hang man-ed _ _ _ _ _ _ _!

Whats that spell?


Hey, I though it was funny.

No laugh.

After thirty painful minutes he says: "I don't feel it."

Ya think?

I nicely said "I agree!" when I wanted to say "No shit, Sherlock!"

I tried to talk, until our food came.

He didn't.

I quit talking.

He ate.

I didn't.... NOT ONE BITE!

I asked for a box.

So did he.

Our check came.

I offered to pay.

He wouldn't let me.

We drove home.

Said goodbye.

Record for shortest date: 46 minutes!

It took me longer to get ready.

Epic fail.

Still single! :)

Anyone up for a game of hangman?

Rebekah said...

Oh my goodness! This had me laughing so hard. I'm sorry it was awkward but you can look back on this and laugh!

Iris Flavia said...

Soooo bad, what a waste of time that guy was - so sorry!!!

Unknown said...

wow, how painfully obvious he was snoresville.

I guess it could be worse, right? He could've been infatuated with you and you not agree ... lol

Anonymous said...

Lol I'm sorry your date when that bad! It made me laugh though. Did he honestly think that would go anywhere if you did all the talking?? CHECK PLEASE!

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

Holy jeez! So sorry that didn't work out, but so glad you realized it early on and got out of there! You WILL find a guy that you can laugh with and play tic tac toe on your napkin with... hang in there! He's out there! :-)

Renee said...

Just out of curiosity, I wonder what he would have been feeling? Or better yet, how does he know he's feeling something if he doesn't open his mouth? Lol.

Oh well, it seems for the best anyway. You're not meant to be with a lame-o.

Token Yankee said...

I went on a date with a girl like that. It was hard work making it through the night. I never asked her out again after that.

jules said...

That is so awkward!! I am so sorry. But pretty funny at the same time. I'm glad you just gave up and didn't even eat. What a jerk on his part too!

Shelley said...

That's hilarious that you were bored enough to do those little games and that you spelled out awkward!! Haha!! What a bad date!! Don't give up though. Not every guy would be that socially inept on a date!

Syndal said...

haha that's an amazing story. we've all been there. (i met my bf on he was not the first date I had to go on through there!)

He & Me + 3 said...

OMgosh for real? That is just crazy. Atleast you were both honest and ended it quickly.
