The Date From Hell Video
It's Been Nice Sitting With Your Purse!
Submitted by: Jonathan
Ok, so I had just been dumped by my long term girlfriend and was tired of just
I needed to go out, meet some cool ladies and have some fun! On
my way to get coffee one morning I happen to run into a girl from school, who I
hadn't seen in a while (let's call her Cindy for the story). We start chatting
it up and I ask her if she wants to get dinner and see a movie this weekend.
She agrees and gives me her number.
That Saturday I pick her up and we head downtown to grab some food before the
movie starts. First thing that was off was how shy and tense she seemed to be.
I was hoping getting her to talk help loosen the tension of a first date and we
could get to know each other a bit better. Unfortunately she only had a
three word vocabulary.
Me: So do you like to read at all?
(brief moment of silence)
Me: Any books you recommend?
Me: Well what kind of books do you like? Mystery, romance, Fiction?
Cindy: I dunno
I would try to ask open-ended questions or at least talk about stuff she seemed
interested in (I was getting tired of yes, no, I dunno), but she never bothered
to expand on anything! She never asked me anything either, if I didn't initiate
the conversation we would have been walking around in silence the whole time.
I couldn't figure out what the problem was. I wasn't asking anything
inappropriate or doing anything to make her uncomfortable,why couldn't she just
relax and start enjoying herself? But she was just tense and seemed very
uncomfortable. She never was like this any other time we had seen each other.
So we get to the movies and I take a seat towards the middle of the aisle.
Cindy doesn't sit next to me but chooses to sit one seat away from me with her
purse on the seat between us. I'm in shock, what is this nonsense?
Me: Umm..... what up?
Cindy: I like to have my space when I'm at a movie.
Me: No, this isn't right. If you're over there it's like we're not even seeing
this movie together. Are you worried I'm going to try to put my arm around you
or something? Look, I'm not going to invade your space or anything but at least
sit next to me.
Cindy: No, I'm fine over here.
What the heck kind of date is this? I wanted to leave then but I already
purchased the ticket so I figure I'll just watch the movie, sitting next to her
purse! At this point I'm over this whole ordeal and am more curious on how this
girl actually manages to have any kind of relationships acting this way. So I
ask her how her love life has been lately.
Cindy: Well I just moved in with my boyfriend who I've been seeing for a
WHAT THE HELL? Are you kidding me? Why did she agree to go out to dinner and a
movie with me if she has a boyfriend? I assume she thought I wanted to hang out
as friends. Which is fine, but she probably could have told me that at any
point in the last hour we had been hanging out! It was obvious I was treating
this as a date from the start, if she didn't want it to be a date she needed to
let me know from the get go!
After the movie I drive her home in complete silence (I had stopped caring about
getting to know each other at this point). As she is getting out of the car she
has the nerve to tell me "We'll have to hang out again soon." I laugh and tell
her flat out "I don't think so" and drive home never to see her again.
More Dates from Hell
True.com..... aren't they suppose to be one of the better sites that screens for
felons or marriage?
Well...I had been conversing heavily on the phone for months with "Mitch" from
Victorville, California. We decided he should take a trip to New York because
we both felt this was it, love. The week in the Big Apple was great. Then it
was my turn to go to California...
Mitch turns out to be a married, lying, cheating , gambling and stealing, not at
all the same guy I met here. The first couple of days were great...but... then
we hit the casinos. Well 15 hours later after losing he agreed to leave. Next
day another casino..bingo.. another loss. He became a mean, nasty, hurtful,
disgusting, deceitful person.
The true colors do come out. Even the sites that claim they check you out
really don't, or at least not completely as they say. Be careful and sometimes
I guess we have to second guess our situations. It's too bad and very sad.
