Bad Date

I had the longest and most busy week ever, and the only thing that kept me going was a date I had planned for tonight. It was a pretty casual date- some guy and I went ice skating with several mutual friends. Why didn't I enjoy it? First of all- I hate ice skating. I haven't ice skated in years, but I thought it would be a fun experience. I fell repeatedly, which was really embarrassing. Second, he hardly spoke to me at all the whole night. Since we took so many people with us, he was distracted and later got a headache, then didn't even say goodbye to me when he left. I'm not clingy or anything, but I really wish he would have spent more time with me than he did. We spent about 10 minutes together the entire night, and none of it was one-on-one time. His friends were annoying and inappropriate, trying to get is to kiss and pressuring us to sit closer (which I guess I wouldn't have minded, it's just none of their business).
I haven't been on a date with a guy in over a year now because of a fear of commitment that my last boyfriend contributed to. This date was a big deal to me, but it ended with me driving through the McDonald's drive through and ordering a chocolate milkshake by myself. I don't even like chocolate milkshakes and I don't usually go to McDonald's.
I'm pretty sure it was all his friends' fault for not minding their own business. He could have manned up a little and told them to back off or something, because they were just plain immature and that probably made him nervous.

  • Give the guy a second chance. Email or phone him and see if he wants to try again, but this time just you and him. Then you'll give each other a fair chance. And if something happens, let it happen. Don't be afraid to let love in.

  • Awkward. But if you like the guy be open to another try. Maybe he was just as irritated by the situation as you.
