What Not to say/do on a date Part 7

If you've missed any of the previous segments, they can be found here. Also, I had someone ask me if these are stories I've heard. Um no! These all happened to me! They are dates that I have gone on.
This week's What Not to say/do on a Date actually took place on a 3rd date. 

The guy and I had known each other for awhile but had lost touch over the years. We came back into contact and ending up going out on a date. It was so nice that we made plans for a second one. The first 2 dates consisted of things like going out to dinner, going to the movies and shopping. 

On the first date he met me at my house and we rode together. The second date I drove to his house and picked him up. When I got there he was already waiting outside on me. We went on the 2nd date and it ended great. 

Now here comes the 3rd date. We decided to go see a movie and that I would swing by and pick him up. When I go to pick someone up or when I'm going over to someone's house I have a tendency to call them and let them know I'm almost there. I figure everyone likes a few minutes notice to be ready. On the way over, I made the call letting him know I was almost there. When I pulled up to his house he was outside waiting like how he had been the last time I picked him up. I didn't think anything of it. I figured with the phone call that he'd just decided to go ahead and come outside. 

So... we end up going out to eat and not to a movie. During dinner, he asks me if I'd like to come back to his house and watch a movie instead of going to the theater. I said yes, thinking that it would be great to spend some time with him without 50 other people surrounding us. Once we finished dinner, we headed over to his house. I parked outside of his garage and we walked in. 

As soon as I walk in there's a lady standing there looking at me. I thought, Um...did we just walk into someone robbing you? 

Turns out he lived with his mother and failed to mention that.... 
For future reference guys...you might want to tell your date that even though you're a successful, working adult,  you live at home with mommy before you bring your date home.

He could have at least let you know. No shame in that. Plus, I know so many people that had to go back living with their parents due to the economy etc or for whatever other reason...but at least mention it. It's not a sin. I would not mind. Sure at some point I think I would, but I would absolutely appreciate it if I was told beforehand and wouldn't think his mom was a robber or so. :( Silly! So sorry you had to experience that.

Oh sweetie-I LOVE reading your blog every week esp your dating stories. You must have flipped out. I would have said that same thing about being robbed! Wow well that is just lovely. How long is he going to be living with his mommy?

Young Mom/Wife said...

Oh dear lord! That is definitely a date no-no. Your dating stories are seriously cracking me up.

Ashley said...

Haha thats awesome! Straight out of Failure to Launch!

Kristin said...

No way. That's hysterical. Was she going to watch with you? Ah ha ha

When ever I'm laughing out loud - I always stop for a second and feel a little bad - because this really happened TO YOU, but then I get over it and start laughing at how stupid guys can be...

living with his mom...okay everyone has difficulties - but not telling you he lives with his mom before he brings you over for the second 1/2 of a date... that's priceless...

His mom! OMG. I would have died. Isn't that interesting...

Ashley said...

YIKES!!!!! You really need to write a book to guys on what not to do on a date!

Jessica said...

I'm not going to lie I kind of suspected that once you mentioned he was waiting outside the second time. I do, however, think he should've told you. I think it's awkward to meet someone's mom that way.

Pamela said...

I thought something seemed fishy!!! Oh boy! Talk about awkward! He should have said something earlier!

Tall about a buzz kill! Be it judgemental, I will own the fact that I couldn't do it under any circumstances. At the place in life that I am, this is just a no go for moi.

2nd Date: Roommate is his brother. Brother locked himself out. First thing after he picks me up, we have to go to his house and give his brother the spare set of keys. Wellllll... Living room consists of a tv, a recliner, and a huge stuffed bobcat lunging at a bird. Nothing else. I was MORTIFIED. Especially by the dead cat attacking a dead bird. I was expecting a story like that from this dude... but Mom is pretty high on the "shocker" as well!
