Are you ready to cringe with me? Samesies. So my second worst date was from OKCupid. In no way, shape, or form am I knocking this dating site—my brother actually met his wife on there, and they’re perfect for each other!
This is super unlike me, but I actually messaged a guy first! I’m so shy when it comes to guys; I NEVER talk to them first.
He messaged me back and we started talking back and forth for a few weeks. We planned to go on a simple, cute date: a walk around my favorite lake, dinner, and if it all went well I was going to invite him up for a drink!
So we met, walked around the park and really hit things off. Until—we sat down on a bench and things instantly changed. He talked about himself for over an hour, and every time I tried to say something, he would make it about him (strike one).
Finally, I suggested that we go get dinner. His response (I sh*t you not): “I’m not hungry, but I’ll take you wherever you want to go I really don’t eat much, I just drink beer.” (Strike two) This is the part where y’all are probably like, “Hailey, why the heck would you keep spending time with him??” Well, I never leave a date—unless things make me super duper uncomfortable. Three strikes and you’re out, right?
Here comes strike three. On our way back to our cars, we walked over a bridge where we walked past a cluster of flowers and crosses. He smiles and goes, “what, did some idiot jump?” Someone had actually jumped off of that bridge a few weeks prior.
- Suicide jokes are never funny
- Why would anyone think that it is okay to joke about this stuff?
Needless to say that was our last date.
