What Not To Do/Say On A Date

Look what's back!!! That's right folks!

What Not To Do or Say On A Date
The famous segment is back! You can check out the previous segments here.

Let's jump right in, shall we?

Clearly I've been out of the dating world for two years. I forgot how rough it is out there.

I met this guy at work. I work in one department and he works in another. We have very little contact but when I do see him, he's always nice and we have friendly/flirty banter. We exchanged numbers and had been texting back and forth a lot for a few weeks. We decided to finally hang out. The day was set and started off right.

He showed up early.
He paid for the meal.

Then something unexpected happened... he says, "I think you're special."

Um... what the heck? It was so out of left field, I didn't know what to say. I wasn't completely sure what he meant so my instant reaction was, "Like short bus special?"

He clarified and said, "No. Special as in I don't meet people like you everyday special."

I was pretty excited about this. That was a really nice thing to say.

So the evening ended and he calls me on his way home and sets up a second date. We agree to meet 3 days later for dinner.

Well kids... 3 days later came and went and he fell off the face of the earth. No cancel phone call or text. I was completely stood up. *Let that sink in*

I had never been stood up in my life.

Talk about awkward first sighting at work. Dude literally saw me and turned around and went back through the door he had just came in. He later apologized and said he had "family issues" going on BUT last time I checked this was 2013 and it takes about 2.5 seconds to send a I have to cancel text. I mean really if you are a grown adult over the age of 20 you need to send a cancel text at the bare minimum. I don't care if you've got a death in the family, have the poops, just feel plain lazy and don't want to go out or even meet the love of your life in the meantime... you always send a cancel text. I think the only time it would be OK not to see a cancel text is if you're in jail and if that's the case then I wouldn't want to date you anyways! Grow up! Grab your balls and just send it.

HA! Oh my gosh I can't believe it! That is so funny that he just basically poured his heart out to you and then never called! What a butthead!
