someday you'll be able to look back and laugh at it. It was my bad decision to suggest anything beyond coffee, so I take the blame for this. Yes, instead of thinking crummy dat/meet say I learned something and carry on.or sell the story to a comedy show and make the back. Not Tim Horton's, but Starbucks for the quieter environment. What bothered me the most was how she represented herself, and became rambling on about her bad dates. First Man I met was 100 pds heavier, lied about everything ( including his name since he was " wrongfully" accused of sexual assault)However driving home I had to pull over to the side I was laughing too hard to drive, and my friends enjoyed laughs at my expense. Talking about previous online dates or maybe even the wardrobe wouldn't have bothered me that much.
The story-teller will likely use their favorite terms to SLAM the other people, and you will instantly know the trigger words for when they are upset."Yes!
People will tell you a LOT about themselves if you pay attention, and who in their right mind DOESN'T pay attention on dates?
If it ends up being a bad date, I'm still not stuck there for 2 hours.
Just as surprising is there are a few guys who are here/were here who also believe in no coffee meets-dinners only rule-even though they could end up meeting someone who totally misrepresented themselves, but the guy is still stuck with the dinner bill.
However it would be a casual restaurant where we could finish a meal within 45-60 minutes.
If the date is really bad, I could order to go or put my food in a doggy bag.
She talked about her past dating problems saying how guys would bail on her during dates and how guys would drive away upon seeing her.
I should've ended the date after the sushi bar, which I paid the bill ().
If a gal wants to tell me a few stories of tragic dates and missed cues, I'm fine with it, I love stories.
The way people tell stories gives you clues on what they VALUE, what they LOOK FOR, what they OBJECT TO, and how they DEAL WITH the adversity they face. It is NOT about "my value", or me thinking I'm too good for coffee, or some such nonsense. I made the mistake of boxing myself in, as far as time, my first online date.
This thread reminds me of at least a couple of women who are former posters, who said a first meet/date must be a dinner date (at the guy's expense of course), and they would never agree to a coffee date, because in their mind, it proves the guy is a cheap SOB.
