The Worst First Date

One of the many examples of my bad first date experiences...

Posted on

So I met this guy on Bumble..

I probably should have taken it as a sign when I accidentally blocked him. Regardless, I met him for drinks and the date seemed to be going well until things took a turn when he went on a rant about his ex girlfriend. From that point on I knew disaster would ensue. We spent two hours at the bar we met at, I had one drink, a $16 glass of Cabernet Sauvignon to be more specific (this will be important later). He eventually looked at the time and said he needed to get going because he had to work early in the morning. Great, respectable, responsible. When we stood up, he mentioned to me that I am "tall for a girl" (I'm 5'7") and being that I am a polite person I did not point out to him the fact that he is "short for a guy" though it definitely crossed my mind since he was probably my height, maybe an inch or two taller. We go to the front to pay, and this is where things really escalated. Our bill was $25. At no point in the night did I insinuate that I expected him to pay, but I suppose he wanted to be a gentleman and settle the tab for us. Unfortunately "gentleman" was a very wrong assumption on my behalf. He started freaking out at the server, and freaking out at me, completely outraged that it could possibly cost $25 for two drinks (his beer and my glass of wine) and that I would have the audacity to order a $16 glass of wine. At this point I'm a combination of embarrassed, uncomfortable, and unsuccessfully trying to contain my laughter. Before I had the opportunity to offer to pay, his card was in the machine while he muttered to himself under his breath as he paid the bill. I got in my car and drove home, knowing full well I would not be going on another date with this guy, and hoping I wouldn't hear from him again. No sooner do I walk in my front door, I have a message from him asking "where should we go next?" to which I replied explaining I wouldn't feel right going on another date and leading him on when I decided I'd just like to do my own thing for a while. I woke up in the morning to the message pictured below and have concluded I am done dating and will probably die alone as a result.
