First Date - Revisited

Okay. So upon reflection maybe I was a little harsh and rash in the blog I wrote last night and just recently posted. 

It was a first date and on the grand scheme of first dates it wasn't that bad. 

He wasn't creepy. He didn't try to stiff me for his part of the bill. He didn't ask me to fart on/for him. It could have been much worse. 

But in the end I felt like I was on a date with my high school math teacher. Okay so my high school math teachers were a woman and a 60 year old man with long nails and shirts made of table maybe I wasn't on a date w/ my high school math teacher... 

Anyway, despite the conversation having few awkward silences, him having a not-so-bad personality or just wasn't what I was looking for. 

I don't expect prince charming or a knight in shinning armour...but I do expect a clean shirt, some level of chivalry and a few (small) sparks.


  1. Either way, you deserve better :-P And blogging rants is always the best.

  2. Sparks are well worth finding, and if that means suffering thru a few bad first dates, it's ok. At least he didn't spit on you, touch you in inappropriate ways, or bring his mother..... :)

  3. Oh I hear ya! Sparks are a must-- granted, they can develop over time but 45 minutes is pretty much my limit :)

  4. I'm sorry the date was a bust, but it's been a story to tell right? Good for you for getting out there and you have that experience under your belt. Don't give up yet!
