Date #97: Mr. Zzzzzzz....

Signs you’re on a lousy date:

· you hope you can escape in time to get to Whole Foods before it closes
· you fantasize about the singer in the band your date suggested you see together (oh man… those lips!)
· you start to write your blog entry in your head

Note to self: when potential date seems devoid of personality in e-mail and on the phone? No chance that he’ll be smooch material in person.

I knew I should have gone to the gym instead.

Sucks... One thing I have learned... trust your gut. Even though I keep ignoring mine and going out with terrible people, my gut told me it was a mistake every time.

this is hilarious. i recognize that last one, writing the blog entry in my head *during the date.* you're wanting to say, 'hurry up! isn't this date over now? i want to write this down before i forget how i was going to say it.'

Good call--don't even bother with the ones that you don't click with on email or phone!! But I know, I know. Every once in a while we forget that. Until we find a Mr. Zzzzz!

My brother always brought a pack of cigarettes with him so that if he saw the date going nowhere fast, he'd just whip out a ciggy, and nine times out of ten she'd be all "eewww, you smoke?" and that would be that.

What I like to do is push the envelope with her and ask really bizzare, deeply philosophical, or metaphysical questions.

Either we'd have a real intriguing conversation or she'd flip out!

Actually -- as soon as I realize a date is going nowhere, but still have to stick it out for some reason (in this case, a concert in a small venue)... I'll be the worst version of myself! I'll totally speak my mind (eg, blunt/negative things I wouldn't normally blurt out on a date)... won't bother fixing my hair or lipstick... I'll slouch.

In a nutshell -- I'll try to turn the guy off as much as possible. (in this case, it had no impact -- he wrote to me today, saying he had a very nice time)

All that...and low standards, to boot.
