Sometimes I am too nice or optimistic on dates and think they could turn around. This was a big mistake because for the next hour all he did was complain about his job and his roommate’s girlfriend.
When he wasn’t complaining, he found ways to bring his best girlfriend into the conversation.
When we see something is not working, we can move on to the next person without making the effort to tell them why.
The worst part was that he thought the date went well enough to go in for the kiss. Even if he hadn’t talked about his exes and best friend, I still would have not have wanted to see him again because of how negative he was about his job and how awfully he spoke of his roommate’s girlfriend.Then, I got an e-mail from him: not a single word, just a photo of his penis.—Diana, NJMy date told me he wanted to take me to a restaurant out in a ritzy town that was pretty far from where I live.He looked normal enough, and I agreed to go on a date with him.We met for drinks, and things were really going well.
