This is a small corner of my blog where I can vent about the trials and tribulations of being Single In the City!!
Sooo I’ve been single for over half a year and I’m not going to lie, I bloody love it! But that being said I’ve still attempted put myself out there enough to experience the awkwardness of first dates again… (Let the ground eat me)
This time round I’m being picky AF. Mainly because I deserve to be. And I wont settle for less than I deserve!
I learnt a lot in the last few years of what I should and shouldn’t put up with.
I’m also not 100% sure of what I’m looking for in a guy but, basically someone on my level who can have a laugh – surely not too hard to find. Wrong.
So to vent on the weird dates of this year (and let me tell you I’ve had a few) I’m going to go back to one I had in about April time…
I’m going to call guy number 1 Tinder Tony –
SO Tinder Tony seemed all fine, great night, met for 8pm drinks got home at 4am. Clearly we must have got on well??
Nooo. Basically he did three of the biggest no-nos in my opinion. And the thing is all of this really didn’t hit me until the next week when we started to plan our next “date”.
I’ll start with the worse thing. He tells me about the last girl he went on a date with and how she was “obese” . Seriously?! My response was your obese and my obese are probably a different thing. I’m sure she was fine… Later he repeats she wasn’t chubby she was obese. Right pal, strike one.
Also I was aware going on the date there was a pretty big age gap. Me being 23 and him 29. But hadn’t overly thought into it until Tinder Tony decided to comment that he feels like a creep. Okay… I hadn’t thought of that. But the fact you’ve said you feel like one, now makes me feel like you are one…. Strike two Tony.
Anyways strike 3 isn’t too bad. Call me super fussy but weird vibes….
Head to a new bar. He goes to the loo and I’m at the bar getting us drinks. Next minute he appears crouched beside me and goes imagine if I showed up this height, what would you do. Mate, along with calling yourself a creep you’re giving me the weirdest creeped out feeling. You looked hot before now you just look weird… I’m out.
I’m going to be honest and say I took the wimps way out by texting him a week later explaining how we didn’t suit and then BLOCKED.
I would say things can only get better, but hold on for the next installment of Single In the City as Dr Boarding School was much worse…
Until next time,
