Embarrasing dating stories
It was literally the only date I’ve ever been on where I’ve had no more than one drink.The highlight of the evening was him telling me about a year in his early 20s where he was recovering from a car accident and took up a side job as a private detective for six months.
When I finally arrived, I apologized and hoped to have a bit of fun since the journey had been so long and awful.
Instead, I spent the night listening to my date talk about this cool project he did for three weeks at work—so cool I can’t even remember it now—and being asked whether I liked Disney and video games.
He texted right away to make plans for a second date.
I woke up the next morning super hungover and had to tell him I wasn’t interested.
He showed up in a suit with a massive posh umbrella, and immediately I could tell we both weren’t into each other.
He seemed to want to leave with the belief that I fancied him, though, as some sort of ego boost.
He was the quiet, brooding, artistic type back then, and I was hoping he still was.
When we first met up, everything seemed fine—he was outfitted as a hipster and even had a good job.
Side note, he had greeted me with a ‘you look like your photos! or replying to future texts.” –Casey, 28, San Francisco “My first Tinder meet-up also happened to be my first date after a shattering breakup, and I felt all kinds of badass for finally getting back out there.
I was already into this guy—his pictures were cute and the texting was good.
