I couldn't believe that she'd react so rudely to something and then try to act as if it didn't happen. Perhaps she still believed that, like a child playing hide and seek, if you covered your eyes you would disappear. So, yeah I, um guess it is about time to get out of here?
I turned and began walking down the street and she followed closely and said, 'How far away is your car? Where did you park? She replied, 'Oh, I took the bus here. I don't have a drivers license.

I see the pair of sandhill cranes they were about yards down the fairway so I paid them no attention. I take my swing and to my surprise, the ball was a low line drive that got no more than a few feet of the ground. And to my surprise, one of the birds was in the way of the ball.
It was sad, but little did I know she loved these birds and the look on her face was horrific. She broke down in tears. We played the last two holes with maybe exchanging 10 words. Didn't hear from her again. This was about two years after graduation, so we're at different colleges. We had Facebooked a little, and I agreed to a date for when I was home for the holidays.

OK, I'm a broke college kid too, so whatever. Chats and flirts with them literally right in front of me. Now I'm just pissed and want to go home. Told him this. He convinced me that we should at least ice skate, he already bought the tickets, yadda yadda. I'm pretty far from home and don't know anyone in the area, so I agree to go with.
Now I really just want to go home, but I have no way out. On the drive home, he mentions that his grandfather lives nearby and it's a special day for him, would I mind if we stopped? At this point, this date can't get any worse, so I say sure, why the f not. You read that correctly. A where-the-dead-people-stay cemetery. It's about 11 p. I'm now terrified out of my mind, frantically texting my parent where I am and what they should do if they don't hear from me soon.

We hang out and chat for awhile before, nothing odd. About halfway through the movie, my phone starts going off vibrateI check the number, don't recognize it. So I ignore it. It doesn't stop going off for 10 solid minutes. So I excuse myself to take the call, thinking it must be important. I go back and get her from the theater. I hand her the phone and she gets really quiet and takes a few steps away just looking at the floor and saying "mhmm, mhmm. I'm actually pretty amused by the whole thing, say goodbye, and finish the movie.
She explains that it was her ex-boyfriend from a few states away, and that he didn't take the break up and move well. And I guess he went through all her emails, got my number, and found out we were seeing a movie together.
He told them I had a gun. Either he didn't call the one we were at, or they didn't take him seriously. I replied to her saying that I don't know if we can go out again, if this guy is going to do stuff like this.
I mean, she needs to either make him back off, or call the cops. I get a reply email, not from her, but from him. He was intercepting her email. So I called her, told her she needs to get this guy out of her life if she wants to date people. She didn't think it was that bad, so I told her that I wasn't comfortable going out again. No biggie, she was still cute and I hope I am not that shallow. Still, I decided, people have dealt with much worse.
But then it got absolutely fantastic — a friend of hers shows up, and these two are pointing, laughing, and screaming their heads off and calling random characters 'gay' and whatnot. After we smooched, I looked at her and said, 'I love you. I was 15 at the time.

We get to the restaurant too late and its closed, so he complains about that. His friend calls him while we're looking for a new place, he answers and complains about how this date is so bad.
We ended up eating at IHOP, all the while he's still complaining about how terrible that date is.

At the end of the night he drops me off and tells me he had a great time even though it was a terrible date and he would like to see me again. Didn't happen. Maybe if he hadn't whined the whole time I could have had fun too. I was with my girlfriend at the time, she brought a friend, Sarah, and I brought my friend Darren. Sarah was super into Darren.
Darren was super not into Sarah. Darren looked at her, patted her on the head, and said 'Okay goodnight.
It had been going great up until dinner, when she stumbled over a curb. I went to catch her, and promptly whacked her in the face with my head.

He was a former marine who served in Vietnam and did the usual 'scare the bejesus out of the daughter's date' by coming out sharpening his kabar knife when I picked her up, needless to say he really didn't like or trust me after that.
So I guess it worked out OK in the end. Felt great. I thought I was talking to my friend with the same name as my date. It was my date and not my friend. We had been talking for about weeks before we decided to meet up. Agreed that we would take my motorcycle out for a ride.
We got off the bike, sat at a picnic table, and just talked for about an hour. We get up to leave, and I realize I left the lights on I'm like 'S, this battery is going to be toast Six months after the divorce I'm on my first date with a girl named Heidi. She wanted to stop by a local tavern that was hosting a charity benefit. We did Walk in the front door and immediately I am face to face with the guy who screwed my wife.
He attempted to say something to me and I immediately cut him off and threatened him rather harshly. He left. She said I should have punched him. Then went to a party at a mutual friend's house where I got black-out drunk and passed out and I was supposed to be the DD.
We had a lot in common including our hobbies and politics and stuff like that, so I was thinking we might hit it off. Now bear in mind that I'm not super attractive so up to this point she hasn't seen any pictures of me, instead we have pre-arranged recognition signals.
She walks in the door and I spot her by her clothing instantly, and start waving. She gets this sort of uncertain look on her face and walks over and says 'Sam?
Small talk fails and for 45 minutes she complains about how no one is refilling her wine glass she kills the glass every 20 seconds.
I try to be civil and change the subject. Awkward conversational topics ensue, nothing even close to first date etiquette follows. Three quarters of the way through I go to the bathroom and our waiter walks by, asks me if we are doing a reality show or something along those lines, since he has seen this disaster in motion. The date looked shocked and ended up not being able to pay her bill, so the friend who hooked us up got a call and flipped the rest of her check. I had previously made a 'bet' with her wherein if she won, I'd make her dinner and bake pie, but if I won she had to make out with me — either way, win-win, right?
Midway through the flick, she says, 'I'm still a bit hungry — I think I'll go grab a quick bite of the leftovers. I decide about 45 seconds later, as my stomach rumbles, that this sounds like a great idea. I was shocked — I'd never had a date try to rob me before. I asked, 'What the hell are you doing?
At that point, I reached over to the counter and grabbed a slice of the pie. I looked her in the eyes and said, 'Don't forget your desert. She so happen to be a friend of my best friend's current girlfriend, so we decided to make it a double date.
During the movie everything was going as planned, I sat by her while my friend sat with his girlfriend. Then we see a couple of her b girlfriends walk into the theater, and who happen to see the girl I was with right away. When her friends got to where we were sitting, the girl I asked out turns to me and asked, 'Can you scoot down a seat so I can sit next to my friends?
And to add insult to injury, she stayed there, and her friends ate the popcorn I bought.
