This is what happened after my first date with a guy I met online...
Needless to say, we did not have a second date.
What a way to get really excited about dating again...It took me about six months after The Aussie and I broke up to break down and join a free internet dating site. If you have ever tried this out, maybe you're like me and just responded to almost anyone (ALMOST) who messaged you. When I finally caught the attention of a guy I thought seemed pretty cute and interesting, I gave him my phone number. One phone call later, we made plans to go out on a Thursday night.
I'm not going to even pretend I don't get nervous on first dates. But then I got there and I was my usual charming self. Unfortunately, he was SO into himself, I don't think he was even listening to what I said. One of my big pet peeves about LA guys that live on the Westside is that they feel like they are above everyone else. This guy grew up blocks away from me in the Valley, but was shocked that I kept my 818 area code after moving away. Oh, get over yourself. You're not even that cute...and you're DEFINITELY not 5'10". Sorry, dude.
On my way home, I started texting one of my male best friends about the date. Just as I hit some serious traffic where the 10 freeway meets the 405...BOOM! I rammed right into the car in front of me. I was mortified.
Dating is going to be awesome!! I never told the guy I went on the date with about the accident. Well, he never tried to reach me anyway. Asshole.
