Worst. Date. Ever.


I heard about this incident a few weeks ago on the radio, and the tale gets worse when you read the AP version of the story.

We’ve all had some pretty bad dates. I’ve had a guy enter my car with an open beer bottle. (Breaking the law is a good icebreaker.) Then, there was the guy who texted and answered his phones during our first – and only – movie date (…and people wonder why I go to the movies solo). The worst was the guy who asked me to meet him at his job, and then he ran out of gas before we could even pull out of his parking space (… at least the ‘date’ was not boring.)

As awful as all that is, the poor, single woman in this story experienced the hands-down worst date ever. If you use the phrase “grand theft auto” to describe your date to your girlfriends the next day, you have automatically earned a spa day. I’m going to guess this was an African American woman, but regardless, there are lessons to be learned by every woman.

The No. 1 Lesson: If I guy directs you to Buffalo Wild Wings on your first date, run like Flo-Jo in the opposite direction.

You post the other lessons. Oh, and share your worst date ever.

    Nicely done. I see the humor (lol @ the Snoopy reference).

    MY FAVORITTE THUS FAR! I think it’s much more fair to ask someone to tell me something exciting about their life…if it includes a mate, great. However, you hit it on the nail, “Really? Is that’s what’s on your mind?” Giving women an opportunity to think of themselves as something other than “single,” is a great way to help them focus on how great they are outside of a relationship.

    Being coupled, for many women, seems to be the ultimate accomplishment. In many instances, it validates them…that is until they find their purpose. Blessed is the one who finds their purpose before hand. Doing so helps intensify whatever relationship they decide to enter later—even if it’s to build on the relationship they have with themselves.

    If a guy tells you he’s not the “boyfriend type,” listen to him!!!
