A couple of months ago I went on a date with this lady I met online. I was so surprised to meet her the first time not because she was beautiful or it was our first meeting but because she brought her mom to our first date. Most people at this point will try to make some kinds of excuse to leave the situation, but it had been a long time since I went on a date and I didn’t want to spend the holidays alone.
As the date started, I asked her if she wanted to go grab a dinner at this fancy place (and, of course, her mom was invited), but she said no because she just ate with her mom before meeting me. I was little confused at this point, but I tried again I asked if she wanted to at least grab a Starbucks as dessert and she responded with: “Oh I don’t like coffee.” I was running out of ideas so I tried again asking her if she wanted to see a movie and she told me, “No, I just saw a movie.”
By then I had nothing to offer, but then she asked if I wanted to walk around the mall. I said fine so we start walking around the mall with her mom. At this moment, I realized what was I doing and none of us were teenagers. We were both 23-year-old people on a date. So I asked her if she wanted to sit down and talk and she agreed. I thought we could be alone and talk, but as soon as the first conversation ended, she called her mom over to come and sit with us.
Imagine my surprise as we started a conversation with her mom about my future plans with her daughter. Trust me I did not see this coming either (sigh). At this point I was trying my best to get out of this situation without causing any problems, so I told her, “It was nice seeing you. I hope we can do this again later.”
She: What’s wrong?
Me: I am sorry I have a final to study for tomorrow.
She: Why did you even come on this date then?
Me: I am so sorry I know it’s only been three hours maybe next time I will make it up.
We said our goodbyes but she wanted kiss or something so I just gave her big hug and peck on the cheek and ran out of there.
Few days later, I got a text saying: “I had a wonderful time and her mom says ‘hello.’”
