Disaster Dates

by Coco Diong

 These are the dates that are seldom talked about.  They’re the ones where maybe you started with a lot of hope and your hope died before the evening was over because something bizarre and unexpected happened.  Check out these examples…

Selena – “On the first date with a guy, who I thought had a lot of potential, he took me to his friend’s house on our first date for what he called a small get-together.  I was sitting in the kitchen involved in a big political discussion with him and some of his friends when a new group of people came in the door.  After they came in, I noticed he became distracted.  Then he excused himself “for a minute,” and never came back.  Later, I learned from one of his friends who ended up taking me home, that his ex-girlfriend had shown up unexpectedly, and he had left with her.  I never heard from him again.” 

Diane – “It was the day before New Year’s Eve and I didn’t have a date.  I was wracking my brain for a possibility when I thought of my brother’s friend who I met two days before.  He had been with someone else when the introductions were made, but he had held my hand longer than necessary.  Suddenly, I wanted to know more about him since I noticed he wasn’t wearing a wedding ring.  I reached for the phone to call my brother and the phone rang.  It was him asking me if I was busy on New Year’s Eve.  I told him no. However, it turned out he was trying to find a date for his friend.  I was embarrassed, but I agreed to go.  It was the worst New Year’s Eve I’ve ever had. I ended up double-dating wth a guy I was initially interested in. My date was at least seven inches shorter than me and all evening he kept referring to how tall I was.  I ended up catching a cab home alone before the clock struck twelve.”

Jimmy – “I was out on a date with a real classy woman at a very classy restaurant when I spotted my crazy ex-wife come in the door.  When she spotted me, she left her party, came over and sat down at my table, introduced herself to my date as the mother of my children, and the woman “he’ll” always love, and abruptly left.  My date was cool and appeared unruffled by the incident until we left the restaurant.  When we got outside the door, she informed me that she didn’t want to date a guy with a crazy ex-wife, wished me luck, and walked away.”
