When it comes to horrible dates, we've all been there, done that...maybe even done it again. ' Me: 'Ummmm.' (He kept saying 'what else' like to hurry the convo or something—it was really weird)Him:'Ugh, do you know anything? My date repeatedly and periodically yelled, 'I know you think this is my fault, but it’s not! ' To which I screamed, 'I’m not the one who cried in the cop car,' to general merriment."After emailing with Henry on Ok Cupid for about a week, we decided to meet at Home Sweet Home on Chrystie Street for a date.
Think of preparing for your date like you would for a job interview for your dream job.Believe it or not, I hadn’t even heard of online dating before.This ad claimed I could meet the woman of my dreams on their site, so I was intrigued. Well, one thing led to another, and there we were sitting across the table from one another at dinner.He kept interrupting her and even started an argument with her about how to manage her career. She ended up meeting him for sushi and from the beginning of the date until it was over, he continued to argue with her. Since they had communicated mostly online, they ended up with a false illusion that they were in a relationship. After several emails back-and-forth, it was time for them to talk on the phone and move the relationship along. In this case, both of them started to text friends during the date. He said he wanted to go on a “real date.” She knew better enough to say no to this request. In this case, her date thought she had never been married and didn’t remember what she did for a living.She should have ended the conversation with, “I don’t think this relationship is right for me. The couple waited almost three weeks before ever hearing each other’s voices. Unless you want your date to end badly, keep your Black Berry or i Phone off the table. It’s rude and sends a message that you are more interested in something other than your date. Always meet your date in a public place and don’t end up in a car with someone you don’t know on a first date. If you are on a date, make it personal and keep it light.
