Dating Disasters

Dating disasterHis name was Craig and I met him the night before at a party.  We exchanged numbers and decided to go out to dinner the next night.  He picked me up at my apartment and said he liked my outfit, not because it looked good, but because it matched his outfit.  We drove to the restaurant and the whole time he told me how good he is to women, how lucky I was to be going out with him and how much he would like to go to the gym with me so we could “sweat” together.

We got to the restaurant and he was amazed that I ordered his favorite drink, we must be connected in some way and he started planning camping trips, visits to amusement parks and overnight excursions.  He had planned out the next 6 months of our lives and this was our first date.  At the end of dinner he asked me the age old question, is the glass half full or half empty?  Being a little pessimistic, I said half empty.  He became extremely angry and said he refused to believe that, that his prior girlfriend had been a pessimist and he hated it.  He refused to talk to me for a half an hour and drove me home.  When we got to my place, he actually said that he forgave me and acted like I should be very grateful.

Needless to say I never went out with him again and it was the weirdest date I’ve ever been on!!
