Post-Date Update

You know,

When you tell people you're a nurse...it seems to automatically equal them telling you everything in their entire medical history. Usually over dinner. Now, I am pretty used to this. But I was really hoping that this might be different. This date was probably the worst in my life. First of all, I nearly had a panic attack before I went to meet him. I was on the verge of throwing up...possibly peeing my pants...and there was the thought of not even getting out of my car. Thankfully Taryn talked me out of it... or maybe not so thankfully (KIDDING TARYN I LOVE YOU!).

This was a good foray back into the world of dating. But the date was absolutely horrible. Sorry...the guy was absolutely not like his profile at all. He seemed to have some personal hygiene issues. His teeth looked like they had never been brushed. Also, if you don't know this about me...the smell of salmon makes me tremendously nauseous. I have gotten physically ill from it before! I casually mentioned it before we even ordered how it made me sick. What does he do? ORDERS SALMON. Which okay whatever buddy... but I literally just said it makes me nauseated. I ordered a spinach salad with grilled chicken which was delicious! I used the restaurant website and it came out to about 450 calories and about 13g of fat for my whole meal. TOTALLY on plan. Even if I was nauseous as hell eating it. Did i also mention he took 2 hours to eat the salmon? I was about to lose my cookies.

Perhaps the worst part of this date was not the fact that he told me that at 27 he already had gout and diabetes... but the fact that he literally did not stop talking about his Ipad and his computer the entire date. He even interrupted me a few times to tell me about his computer or something he looked up on his Iphone. How about you date your Ipad buddy...he told me he takes it into the bathroom with him. Right.  Needless to say, I was not that impressed. He didn't seem to care that I was even THERE. He just wanted to play with his little phone and talk down to me like I didn't know how to use a computer. Not good.

But I might have made a mistake...please don't throw anything at me. He asked me out again and I panicked and said "yeah". I really wanted to say no but I was really afraid of hurting his feelings... yes, I was a coward. Now I am not sure how to fix it. I kind of want to ignore it and hope it goes away...is that wrong?

Anyway, I came home and relaxed, finished up some things for work, did laundry, and got all the nerves out of my system. My mom says you have to go through a few bad ones to find the good ones. I guess that's true in my case! Dating horrorstories? I want to hear them. Lol also...anyone have a brother or a cousin? Man oh man. LOL.


  1. "You did what?" was the first thing I said when you said u agreed to go out with him on another date. Seriously, you need to find an excuse to not let that date happen. Especially when he ordered something that you had just said made you ill. was he even listening? I think you were polite. The date would have ended as soon as he ordered the salmon. lol! yes.. I'm that crazy.

    I'm glad you were able to stay on plan while eating out. Lord knows that is really a challenge for most of us. Good job!

  2. Wow! He is something else! I can relate to people sharing their medical history and then asking for professional opinion when I'm socializing :( But I guess that's part of the health care worker package.

  3. Definitely do not go out on the second date. It's best just to tell him that you really don't think it's going to work out (over the phone). The 2nd date makes it harder to break it off....don't want to lead him on. It sounds like he might not get many second dates and he may look at this as an opportunity...Just saying :) btw...way to stay on plan!

  4. Yeahhh, avoid that 2nd date :p This one sounded awful and you don't need a repeat of that :p

  5. If he calls you be nice. Definitely DO NOT go out with him but just say you are really flattered but you don't think it's going to work out. Then wish him well and peace out. It's a perfectly diplomatic answer and if he starts asking questions just say you didn't feel a connection and it wouldn't be fair to either of you to continue dating and then just wish him the best and hang up so he can't talk anymore. It's a pretty clear message but a nice one. Sorry your date sucked:( Hopefully the next one is better. xoxo

  6. This sounds like one for the books...and yes, your mom is right, you have to go on a few bad ones before you can appreciate the good ones.
    Hygiene issues are so unacceptable.... tell him to buy a toothbrush! How lame of him- I am sure YOU had spent some time making yourself look your best!
    Next time!
