The date started out good—he was cuter in person than in his pictures, we were laughing and talking about our interests, and then the conversation took a turn for the worst.
All of the sudden out of nowhere, he started asking me about my past relationships, and he mapped out, in detail, his past 3 relationships and why they didn’t work out. (Keep in mind he is a tad older and never failed to remind me on multiple occasions and mentioned that he has been doing this (dating)) for a long time and is really good at knowing if there is a connection right away, and also stressing how important physical attraction is above everything else. When I said that sometimes the physical attraction comes later in a relationship, he straight up disagreed with me.
He immediately said he is not looking for anyone who has never been in a serious relationship and he literally asked me if I was a virgin. I laughed off his question and then he continued to hate on people who want to wait until marriage…all the time, still not realizing that’s how I felt.
We were talking about my best friend and how she can approach guys at bars, and he went on to later call her my “slutty friend”.
What I’m really mad about is my behavior—instead of dealing with an uncomfortable situation and standing up for my friend and letting him know how horrible he was making the date, I just laughed everything off, kept looking at my watch and probably gave him the wrong idea of how I felt about him.
The whole time he kept alluding to going on a second date and every time he mentioned a friend of his he’d say something like ‘you might meet him’ as though he was the one who got to make the decisions about whether or not there would be a second date and I passed the test.
So I guess the best parts about that date was that he was kind of cute and he paid for my drink. Still can’t decide if I want the free dinner and the second chance to set him straight or just not waste my time.
