I actually just remembered another date I went on in the past. This is a much shorter story/confession than WBB
I was about 20 years old so I cant actually remember where it is we met but I do remember arranging to meet at Marble Arch for the date.
Marble Arch is a funny place to meet there is not much around there apart from the park but it was his choice so I turned up.
I was in a pretty summer dress and shades but he……well he arrived in a boiler suit very much like the picture above.
I remember seeing him walk towards me and feeling a little embarrassed I immediately said "do you work in the carwash?"
"no" he said "why do you ask that?"
"no reason" I lied
He had no plan as to where we were going so we were just walking around the are. I didn’t really wanna be seen with him so I suggested that we get some food.
He was pretty cool with that and as we walked past a Pizza place he suggested that we go in there.
I wasn’t interested in him, I knew I wasn’t just the way he talked and I could tell he would be one of those clingy boyfriends who after a while would want you to wipe their bottom so conversation was pretty dry but all of a sudden at some point in the date he reached his hand over the table and put it on top of mine and told me how beautiful he found me and how I was the woman for him
I looked down and saw these long crusty nails all brown and different cracked shapes YUCK
Now WBB had long fingernails I actually forgot to put that but these...well they were just disgusting!
I quickly pulled my hand back saying "boys shouldn’t have long nails" and he looked back at me quite hurt but I know I couldn’t be with a man with those nails.
At the end of the meal the bill came and he looked at me and I looked at him and we both looked at each other for about 10 mins then he said
"do you have any money?"
"huh?" I said?
"can you pay?" he said
"no hun" I lied "I don’t have anything on me
"what about cards?" he said
I told him I would have a look but I needed the bathroom
I know this is really cruel but I just couldn’t be bothered and I left…
I feel quite guilty about that so if by any chance you are reading boiler suit guy…I'm sorry…
Readers...lurkers those are two of my worst dates...if you have had a bad date give me a shout and I will interview you on my blog...
