What not to say/do on a date Part 4

Incase you've missed out on the last 3 parts of this new segment I'm doing just look under my labels for "What not to do on a date." 

Out of all the dates I've been on, this one ranks right up there in the, "Oh my god, how can I get out of here as fast as I can" kind of dates. I should have known it wasn't going to be a great date because it was a blind date (my one and only blind date that I will ever go on). A mutual friend set up the date and we met at the restaurant, Uno's. 

As soon as I see the guy, my instant thought was, "Oh, he's cute!" We started talking, while waiting on our table and the conversation seemed nice. We sit down at our table and the waitress comes. It was in the late evening around 9p.m. so I decided to get a drink. I ordered, presented the waitress with my i.d. and then he placed his drink order...a water. 

At first I didn't think anything about it. I thought, maybe he just didn't want a drink. My drink comes and I can see he's staring at it. So I ask him.
Me: "Did you not want a drink?" I was confused. It seemed like he did.
Him: "They won't serve me."
Me: Now I'm very confused. "What do you mean they won't serve you?"
Him: "I'm only 19 years old."

Ooooooh My Goooodnesssss. My 27 year old male friend, hooked me up on a blind date with a 19 year old?!?! At the time, I was 24 years old! I got through that dinner as fast as I could. The age difference was way too much. He didn't even remember watching School house rocks.

Ohhhh my gosh! I cannot believe your friend set you on a date with a 19 year old! Was it a joke?!

Young Mom/Wife said...

I'm sorry but I laughed pretty hard at that one! Was your friend just trying to be funny or did he honestly think this was a good idea?!

KatlynAnn said...

Katie said...

OMG! AWKWARD!!

Laura and Ryan said...

OMG! Yeah, they should definitely be of legal age to drink! hahahaha

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Oh dear! Yeah once you've hit 21, anyone underage is officially too young to date!

Heather said...

OH my goodness, that's awful! I can't believe your friend didn't share about the age difference!! Bless your heart!

JenellyBean said...

I thought he was gonna say something crazy like I always get out of line when I drink.

So he didn't look young to you at all?

Aubrey said...

HA! Poor guy!

Ashley said...

Oh my freaking gosh. This is hilarious.

Kate said...

Oh god. You are too funny the way you tell these stories.

Blind dates should require a application or survey... one that asks for their AGE.

Ashley said...

OMG!! I was thinking, damn what did he do to get that restaurant not to serve him!! Then you said the age! WHOA!!! I would've died!! But I got an awesome laugh!! You poor thing!!

Annie said...

Jessie said...

Rachael said...

Hahahaahahahahaha...

I mean, that's not at all funny. I'm sure it wasn't at the time, but what a great story. I wonder if his friend told him he'd be out with a cougar? lol. I'd have downed that drink so fast!

BSS said...

I left something for you on my blog, by the way :)

Mrs. Smith said...

HA!! OMG that's hilarious. My husband is 5 months younger than me, but I could never get past 5 YEARS! :)

redheadchick said...

I've totally been there!! I was set up on a blind date with a marine once and it wasn't until we ordered drinks that I found out her was 18. Granted I was only 22 but still!! Ugh, that was also the LAST blind date for me!

That would be mortifying, especially as a woman!
