Dating Disasters

We've all been there girls. Stuck on a date with someone who either just doesn't take your fancy or who is boring as hell. You politely excuse yourself to go to the toilet, on your way you look for the nearest exit and wonder if you can reach it without him seeing you. Instead you end up stuck in the bathroom frantically texting your friend hoping she will give you The Call. You know the one I'm talking about. "There's been an emergency at home." "Your goldfish has died!" "Your house is currently being burgled by aliens looking to find their cricket bat!" I think you get my point here. You put on your best Drama Queen act which would put Angelina Jolie to shame and put on the performance of your life acting all shocked, saddened, panicked and frightened and make your excuses that you have to leave. He knows what you're doing but he politely offers to get you a cab home as he's just as bored as you. Yes girls this is a disastrous date. 

I've not been on very many dates in my life but the ones I have been on I can remember as being absolutely terrible! There's one that sticks out in my mind more than the others. This guy (let's call him *Kevin*) had been speaking to me for around a year, every weekend asking me to go on a date with him. Each time I politely declined and said "maybe next time" it wasn't until after about 12 months that I gave in and finally said yes. I thought what have I got to lose it's only one date after all. I decided to leave the what's and the where's up to him, which was probably my biggest mistake! *Kevin* picked me up from near my home, I wasn't giving him my address, I couldn't cope with any more stalkers! He told me he had decided on the Trafford Centre, with it being quite close to my house I didn't mind. Plus who doesn't like a nice wander around the Trafford Centre every so often? There was little to no talk on the way, this should of been warning signals straight away, but I put it down to him being a little shy and possibly nervous. I tried my best to engage him in conversation getting the odd "yeah" and "no" out of him. I was glad when we finally got to our destination so I had an excuse to get out of the car. As soon as we walked inside *Kevin* said he needed to go to Selfridge's to "have a look at a few items" I didn't mind as it gave me the perfect excuse to have a look round the makeup counters and at the shoes and handbags. He shouted me over and asked my opinion on what I can only describe as the ugliest tracksuit I have ever seen. I gave a nice comment on how it's nice but not my style. I expected him to put it down and for us to be on our way. Oh how I was very, very wrong! He bought the tracksuit which cost him almost £400. Really for the price it was absolutely disgusting. We eventually headed over to the Food Court. He asked what I would like to eat, and I replied with "anything, I'm not too fussy" now this is where the story really becomes disastrous! I could see him weighing up all the different restaurants and food places and I got a sinking feeling. I couldn't help the horror on my face when I saw him start to make his way over to .... KFC!!! Now I'm not high maintenance and I love fast food just as much as the next person. But I've never eaten KFC in my life, and honestly it's not somewhere I would expect to be taken to on a first date! I simply ordered a small fries and a small Diet Coke and sat awkwardly whilst he tucked into a big box meal. I couldn't wait to get out of there and get home so I would never have to speak to him again. 

A few days later, I was relaying my terrible date to a friend of mine, reliving all the horror over again when she tells me she had the same experience with the same person and that it never went anywhere because she found out he had a partner and child. As if it couldn't get any worse! The little sneak had a child and a girlfriend! As all of this was happening he was still contacting me, asking for another date. I just couldn't believe it. I confronted him and he denied it until he was blue in the face and told me that my friend was lying as she was jealous (he wasn't exactly all that to look at so definitely nothing to be jealous over) I think it's safe to say he never got a second date, and I never spoke to him again! I've only been on one other date since and that wasn't exactly date of the year. I think I'm now mentally scarred from dating for life. Maybe I'll just go extra crazy cat lady and stick a bow tie on my cat and take him out for meals instead. I'm sure he would be better behaved and much better company!

    1. I still cringe whenever I tell someone the story, thankfully I can laugh about it now! At the time I wanted to cry. £400 on a tracksuit that looked like it was made out of black trash bags!

  3. Oh dear! This guy sounds like a nightmare. I think you dodged a bullet there!!! I once had a date at the Trafford Centre, we went to mini golf... Turns out the guy was not a gracious loser as he lost to me (beginners luck on my part) and stormed off. Didn't hear from him again :/
