Speed dating horror stories
Maybe you’ll luck out and meet someone awesome (and I really hope you do!
For anyone else considering the sport that is known as speed dating though, I’ve prepared a few tips that may help make the experience slightly less awkward.
The best advice for approaching a speed dating event is to keep an open mind and prepare to entertain yourself during the event.
The grueling evening of mini-interviews couldn’t come fast enough.
Out of dozens of suitors, none were deemed even ok-ish enough (and definitely not eligible by anyone’s standards).
When I say creepy wit I mean he told me tales of taxidermy, and bodily functions – oddly enough two things that don’t get me going. Each more horrifying than the next, not only in appearance but also in level of weirdness – also, no I do not want to meet your mother after talking to you for two seconds…jeesh where did these guys come from?!
Being my first time, I tried to take it in with as much wide eye optimism as a virgin dreaming about his/her first time.
Maybe this was just one, singular, awful experience though.It’s possibly I just happened to be unlucky in my pool of speed dating candidates. I sat at a lone bar table while countless man tried to woo me with their wit for five minutes (though some made it seem like five hours).I dressed accordingly, of course, and brought a spare best friend I had lying around (ain’t nobody got time to do this alone).I wish I could tell you there was some spectacular man there who wooed me effortlessly, or that I didn’t feel like I was about to end up on the back of a milk carton.
But both of those would be lies and we don’t like liars here. The first man up to bat, who looked like a reject suspect from an episode of Criminal Minds, tried to wow me with his awkward charm, and creepy wit.
