Claire couldn’t tell if the date was going well.
She was trying to be open, she really was. But walls built as strongly as hers don’t crumble easily. This has been her 14th first date in three months. None of which had ever led to a second. No matter how hard she tried only one word answers would leave her mouth and anything else was a comment that could come off as rude if you didn’t know her sp...
The woman across from me was sobbing hysterically, snatching her hand away from me and sobbing harder when I reached out to try to comfort her — I had been on bad dates before, but never one that had ended quite this dramatically.
It had started when she mentioned her cat. “Ah yes,” I had replied, “human’s narcissistic asshole best friend.” Turned out her beloved cat of 17 years had just died the...
I Can’t Handle Myself
I hate myself. Why do I do this? Why do I put myself in situations like this? I could have said no, that I’m in a relationship, or not looking for a relationship. Of course when she asked to go on a date with me that popped into my mind immediately. Obviously it’s because I’m self destructive and insecure. She’s everything good about life. Her laugh makes people warm, and her smile is perfec...
Can You Read Minds?
Why do I do this to myself? Every time they say something nice, every time they compliment me or comment on the layout of the room or the deliciousness of the food I make a joke. They probably hate me. I’d hate me, why would you want to date such a pessimist?
I did warn them beforehand and they said it was okay, they keep smiling at me too which I guess is a good sign. But I wish I could just st...
She’s doing it again.
That thing where she keeps talking about herself in this whole “whoa is me” type tone.
I thought she said she didn’t want to be know for her past, yet here she is constantly showing me songs she wrote when she was a child, to music videos she released 5 years ago.
It’s cool, sure.
But it’s also super lame, and nothing I would have been remotely interested ...
The Opposite Date
“So what do you do for living?” I ask
“I hack into people’s social security and steal their money” he says jokingly
“Really!?! So do I” I tell him
“wh-what” he replies “I was joking”
“I wasn’t” I say dead panned
“Alright.. what’s your favorite hobby? Mine is football”
“Oh my girlfriend is the star goalie of her local foot ball team.. she’s a keeper.” I tell him
“We need a check”...
Interesting Conversation Piece
“You’re a riot,” she laughed, holding her hand close to her mouth.
“A riot, huh?” He cocked a brow. “That’s a new one, I’ll admit.”
The girl’s laughter morphed to surprise. “Really? You’re hilarious! I thought everyone knew.”
He shrugged. “If some people aren’t that bright, there’s nothing we can do about it,” he said with a sigh.
“You think I’m bright,” she grinned. She had a cat-like smile. ...
Women are complicated specimens of nature. You have no clue how they operate nor the decency to care in the beginning of old age. Some days they love the hell out of you and wanna smuggle suffocate you on a personal presidential level, when yesterday, she treated you like two servants and a robot; a maid, a waiter, and an ATM. Some days you aren’t in the room when she comes in and you’re still not...
Everyone said Tinder was a scam, that no one ever actually finds someone halfway decent on there.
I downloaded it while I was drunk and set up a profile that… exaggerated my qualities, to say the least. How any idiot who believes that a 21 year old woman can be a chef, model, actress, and regular volunteer at Feed my Starving Children is beyond me.
I mean, it’s not all lies, really. I used to he...
