The Date You

Don’t Forget

Karmela, 28: “I was out on a blind date with a guy who seemed to be struggling to converse after we initially met and sat at the bar.  The place was very crowded and very loud and I thought he couldn’t hear me well.  He would stare at me, and then look abruptly look away as if he was distracted.  When I attempted to initiate several conversations on various topics, he would mumble a response with his head turned in another direction.  Finally, when I asked if anything was wrong, he blurted out that he was bored. He gave me a weak smile and apologized for being so blunt.  Of course, I excused myself without responding and left him sitting there.”

Marla, 36:  “I’d been dating a wonderful guy for only four weeks when he asked me to accompany him to the zoo on a lovely Sunday afternoon.  When we stopped in front of a pond where two beautiful Flamingo birds sat sipping water, he pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him.  I said yes, and dropped everything in my busy life to be with him.  We eloped to Puerto Rico the next week, and we’re still in love two years later.”

Pam, 28: “I was excited about being out on a first date with a guy who was smart, handsome, and driving a brand new Benz.  When he asked what restaurant I wanted to go to for dinner, he frowned at my reply, as if he didn’t approve.  When I suggested another less expensive place, he said the first choice was fine.  When we got to the restaurant, I ordered lobster tails and he ordered crab legs.  However, when it came time to order dessert, he excused himself to go to the men’s room.  When he didn’t return after fifteen minutes, I asked a waiter to check on him and discovered he had left the restaurant.  I was so embarrassed, I couldn’t breathe.  I paid the check and left the restaurant in tears.  The next day when I called the friend who introduced us to complain about what happened, he informed me that the guy had a reputation for testing women for what he called “the gold-digging gene” and I failed the test.  He claimed the guy left me with the check to teach me a lesson.  I am still angry and it happened over three months ago.”

Laurie, 26: “I got stood up one night at a popular restaurant where I was supposed to meet a guy I’d been dating awhile.  I sat there waiting for him an hour longer than I would have normally because it was raining very hard outside.  While I was sitting at the bar, I noticed a very striking guy not far from me, who also appeared to be waiting for someone, and it seemed he had been there when I arrived.  Just as I decided to leave, he sent me a drink.  I nodded my thanks and invited him to join me.  It turned out that he had been stood up as well, and we ended up spending the evening together and having a great time.  Six months later, we were married, and we’re convinced Fate had a hand in our meeting.”
