My Date, In A Nutshell, It Was Boring...

Dates should not be boring. Let me repeat that: DATES SHOULD NOT BE BORING. I went on a date yesterday with this guy. We met at the National Zoo, walked around, talked, walked around, talked. Then I was SO over running, screaming kid banshees and cool animals that could care less about the gawkers. We left and I could have went home at this point. The conversation was very...blah. He suggested we go for ice cream. We get to Coldstone and they are closed. I suggest we go to Alero for a drink. We get there, and I excuse myself to go to the ladies room. While waiting for the person already in there to come out, I see A BIG ASS RAT RUN IN THE KITCHEN, ok, well it wasn’t that big, but when I can see something running around in circles, in the kitchen/stockroom/restaurant, I’m out, like, like (insert phrase here)... I RAN OUT AND TOLD HIM WE HAD TO GET THE FUCK OUT ASAP


(Side Note: For my DC folks, do not go to Alero in Cleveland Park: End side Note)

We finally found a frozen yoghurt spot, and by this time I was so totally not “there”. We finish the date, he drives me to my truck, gives me a kiss on the cheek, and we part ways. A few hours later he texts me and says what a great time he had (wish I could say the same).

I know what you’re thinking? “Diva, what’s wrong with him”. Aside from the fact that I would have had more fun folding paper bags into origami shapes, or I could have played vodka pong with myself, or skipped rope, or laid on the couch and painted my toes...

He was a Good On Paper guy by all accounts, it was just lifeless, no joking, no chemistry, nothing...good on paper does not mean good in person...

Hey Diva. Sorry about the boring date. Was the guy acting nervous and fidgety b/c he was around you or was his personality just bland by itself?

LOL. Is this the guy that was late last time? Maybe it was for the best

P.O.W.

P.S. You go on more dates in one week that I do in a month. Its sad really

I feel as though I would like to know why he took you to the zoo.

You So Crazy by Martin directly addressed the issue with taking girls to the zoo.

Please tell me this wasn't a first date. If so, that dude is just cheap.

Dr. J - Ok, before I elaborate on the Zoo thing, please tell me what Martin said....why can't you take chicks to the Zoo on a date, LOL....gotta know

Tunde said...

Dually noted on the Alero thing. Thanks for the update.

favorisntfair said...

The zoo Diva? I'm too through with him...lol. Boring dates are the worst.

Chaotically Calm said...

Now Diva you strike me as the type to have an exit strategy planned you know quick txt to friend to call you and act like an emergency happened that you must attend to.....oh maybe that's just me.

i think alot of people are not themselves on first dates. Alot of guys try so hard to be smooth, gentleman like etc and forget to be funny, exciting and actually have a good time.

@ Everyone ... The Zoo wasn't the problem (as it WAS my suggesstion) LOL... ummm I didn't wanna do dinner and I didn't want to do an evening date, or anything related to food.

It was just the Chemistry and lack thereof. Like he didn't come up with anything else when we left. He asked me what I wanted to do, and I told him to choose since I chose that...he came up with ice cream...

Nelia said...

I vote that you give him one more chance. And start the evening off with a healthy round (or three) of cocktails. If he still doesn't do it for you, then it's time for the blow off.

Shoot. I like the zoo.

Maybe it was just you.

Im noticing a trend in your dates. Can you guess what the common denominator is?

London Escorts said...

Hi Diva, Nice positng.

Thanks London, Welcome...

PS: This was the guy from a few weeks ago that was 30 minutes late...so this was his second and last chance...

Marty J. Christopher said...

There's nothing wrong with him, and there's nothing wrong with you. Bad dates are about bad chemistry. The only thing that sucks about them is enduring them. Sorry you had to endure that. : O (

Thanks Marty J, you're right. We did hang out on Wed, but well it's not meant to be, you can't force the issue. He'll make some librarian very happy one day :)
