Margari… Not Having It

Where do I begin with this date; lets call him Nicholas. So we met at a Mexican restaurant because I really wanted a margarita. I was completely caught off guard when this dude started to talk.. his voice.. sounded like a girl. INSTANT TURN OFF. All he talked about was all the other Tinder dates he went on and how there never was a second or how weird the girl was. I should have taken that as a sign & RUN.

You know the margarita I wanted… well I took one sip & then the Nicholas spilled my drink all over me. I look like I peed myself. (Rolling my eyes) The whole time he is just laughing & thinks its the funniest thing in the world. I asked the waitress if they had a blow dryer in the bathroom…  I don’t know if the embarrassing part was him spilling my drink or the waitress coming into the bathroom and asking if the guy was my boyfriend and once I told her no, she looked relieved and told me how she couldn’t believe how rude he was, by just sitting there and laughing.

In that moment, I did not want to go back out there. I texted my mom and asked her to call me in the next 5 to 10 minutes telling me I need to come home. YES. I asked my Mom to save me from the most awkward date of my life. For some reason I attract the men who just love to laugh at the craziest things.

Moral of the story: Always talk on the phone or facetime before actually meeting the person. In all honesty, a voice says a lot about a person and can change your whole outlook on someone. Oh If he starts talking about other dates he has been on where there were no second ones, just get up and walk out.

The Man With too Many Giggles

Back in September, I went I my very first Tinder date.. now I don’t know if you call going to your local Durbin’s Bar a date, but that is where we went. Mind you, he also picked me up in a baby blue Chrysler.. which in my opinion is a total girl car. RED FLAG. Let’s talk about his outfit: Nike shirt.. like the word “NIKE” written across his chest. Great first impression dude.

Now we get to the bar and we order drinks.. he got a Budlight & I got a Coors. So your basic beer, nothing crazy. As we are sitting there, talking about life.. I guess. He just begins to laugh.. by laugh I mean fidget awkwardly and kept playing with his ears, while basically sitting on the edge of his chair. Mind you I was just sitting here, very calm, trying to understand how to interpret this dudes behavior. I don’t know if it was just the one beer he had, that made him “feel some type of way.” I know I was not feeling this date anymore and wanted a ONE WAY ticket out of there.

My friends told me that maybe he was just nervous. Yes he could have been nervous but it wasn’t like he was doing all that fidgeting at the beginning of the night but towards the end it was unstoppable. I know when I’m nervous, I talk a lot more and talk by gesturing my hands a lot more. I am not an awkward person.. if anything I am the one who will keep the conversation going. Needless to say, there was no second date.

If you ever experience a date or a situation with a dude who giggles after everything you say.. RUN.

Future Tinder go-ers, here is a piece of advice when meeting a guy: drive to the destination separate so that if it really is that awful, you can come up with an excuse to get out of there!
