If I Could Blog Back Time Thursdays - Worst Dating Disasters

Come join me for this week's edition. Post yours and comeback and sign up with MckLinky.
This Thursday's topic is: Worst Dating Disaster -
Come on, even Lola has had a few dating disasters, what about you? Was it a blind date? Was it your date or the venue? Did you ever date that person again?
I've had a few doosies! One I can't even clean up to make it PG-13. Well, that and I don't want to divulge any ah, er, ahem, lesbian dating secrets, after having taken the oath and all.

Let me start out by saying nearly all of my dates had been blind dates, unless someone provided a photo. I always tried to not have any preconceived ideas and I had always been a person more interested in personality and what's on the inside. (Really!)

I just remembered one lesbian dating disaster that I can tell. This girl lived in Canada, flew down for a date. I met her online. She was a bit younger, but she said she liked that because she was "mature". Mmm hmm. We didn't exchange photos, just descriptions. I would know her at the Midway gate because she would be the one carrying a rose (so cliché!)

When we met, she gave me the once over...and not in a nice way. Up and down. The expression on her face said it all. She was not pleased. She was also extremely rude about it. She made a rude comment that I can't recall. (Yes, I probably blocked it out, it was that hurtful.)

I don't know why, perhaps I thought I should play U.S. ambassador and show this Canadian that not all Chicago lesbians are fat, ugly, ogres. My feelings were hurt, but I held it in and offered to show her the town. Why not? She came all that way. I was more than gracious.

We went to Navy Pier. She didn't say a word the whole ride from Midway. I tried to make conversation but she didn't even respond! Not a word. Even when I asked questions! When that failed, I resorted to tour guide mode. When we got there she used her cell phone to get the time for the next flight back. We walked around a few minutes and then left. She offered to call a taxi. I said I would drive her. (Why? I have no idea! I should have just left her there, but I'm not that kind of person. I invited her, I drove her there, I felt responsible for taking her back to the airport.) She stared out her window the whole ride back...seething. When she got out of the car she threw the roses I got her at me before she slammed the door. All I could think of was "I'm not really that awful looking, am I?" I was crushed.

And what, you may ask, did she look like? Younger than I thought, a bit too heavy eye make-up, black nail polish. Very goth. But that wasn't what made her unattractive. What made her unattractive was her look of disdain and her incredibly rude behavior. I don't believe I've ever met anyone so rude before...or since.

Oh, my god. You are WAY nicer than I would've been in that situation. Kudos to you for taking the high road. I hope that bitch gets what she deserves.

WOW! I don't think that I could have been that nice. Good for you being the respectful one though!

How awful! Good for you for not stooping to her level. I had a similar date with some guy I met online who was extremely unhappy with my appearance (even though I told him repeatedly before we met that I was somewhat overweight), told me so in no uncertain terms, then had the nerve to try to get me into bed. Go figure.

Ugh, that sucks. I would have left her there!
