Can’t Handle It
My Very Worst Date happened about two years ago. I met A through some mutual friends and we started hanging out. We made plans for me to come over to his house for dinner one Friday night after having hung out a couple of times. The day of the dinner, I got fired from my job. I felt terrible but decided to still go over to A’s house anyways.
When I got there, I quickly realized he had invited some of our mutual friends for dinner as well. I was upset, thinking it was just going to be dinner alone, but I let it slide, trying to have the rest of my day go better than the first part of it. Being people that I knew as well, I let him and everyone else know that I had lost my job. He didn’t console me or anything while everyone else was, but I chalked it up to him making everyone dinner. I had walked in and noticed two tables set up for only couples. but when it came time to eat, he sat us down at the only table that wasn’t for just two people. I was a little upset but again tried to make the best of it.
After dinner, he proceeded to get high while the rest of us decided to go downtown. I rode with him downtown – bad idea I know – but once we got there, he dissappeared. I didn’t see him the rest of the night. I ended up having to catch a ride from my friends so I could get back to my car. Ditched on a date on the same day I lost my job!
He called a week later to tell me that he wasn’t ready for a relationship, but I let it go to voicemail.
