What Not to say/do on a date Part 11

Welcome to another installment of, What Not to Say/Do on a Date! If you've missed any of the other segments on my horribly bad dates, you can find them here

So this story is going to be a little bit different from all the rest.... This past weekend, I attended a party for one of my coworkers. They were having a bonfire out in the country and when I say country, it took me 45 minutes to drive there from my house and I almost got stuck on an uphill gravel road. Let's just say that my tires, on my poor little Kia Spectra were spinning their hearts content out trying to get up it. 

So when a group of us (who rode in my car) finally got there, introductions were made and food and drinks were offered up. Since there was good number of people there a few people never got introduced to one another. Well I'm getting a drink and my coworker came over to introduce me to his neighbor. Instantly my heart went into my stomach....

This neighbor is someone my coworker has been trying to set me up with for at least 2 months now. What's happened is he'll tell me a little bit about him, go and talk to his neighbor and do the same and then tell us each other what's been said. Confused? Yeah me too and I'm even involved in the situation. So this was it, we were finally coming face to face. I had heard endless conversations about him and him about me. Coworker makes the introduction and then nothing. It was a party so I didn't think anything of it. 

Later in the night, we ended up standing side by side and I struck up a conversation with him. He literally pretended like he had no idea who I was. It was as if  he was just finding out that I existed in the universe. Seriously? I knew that the coworker had been talking about me. He sure had been telling me tons of things about him! So I automatically assumed that he just wasn't interested in me and this was his way of letting me know. 

Let's just say the conversation was rough. It became like one of those moments where you're sitting in the dentist chair and you know the silence is inevitable. I ended up leaving with the group I came with shortly afterwards and felt like complete crap. I had even curled my hair and put on make up... only to get shot down. So I'm guessing this is the date that will never be....

Your blog is so cute!

Sorry to hear about the awkward conversation/introduction, at least you realize how socially awkward he is early on, rather than after a few dates!

That's so lame. I hate it when people act like they have no idea who you are. DUMB. Seriously, what a jerk, you aren't missing out on anything there. Hopefully your co-worker stops trying to set you up.

Looks like there's a major consensis here: it's definitely his loss!

Shann said...

I think if a guy is worth your time he would strike up a convo with you! He's not that sharpest tool in the shed.

PS I'd love to be a guest blogger on the topic. I've been in similar situations!
