Date Update: He Wore Flip Flops

Alright so here's my #throwbackthursday even though it only happened like 2 weeks ago but I'm trying to forget the whole thing so I'm pretending like it never'll know why very soon....

Sooo I decided to go on a date. It's been a little while since I went on a date and the dating apps have taken a bit of a slow turn so I decided to step out of my comfort zone for a minute...I slid into someone's DM.

Now I sound like a tool. lol.

But no seriously so I'm not naming names because it's embarrassing and I don't want anyone to find out who it is because the date didn't go so great but he's a really nice guy so I don't want him to be humiliated. Okay so anyway, I knew about this guy because he's pretty popular around the local area and without giving too much away, he's a DJ for a radio station. Not saying where...but I listen to the station every morning and something about what he was talking about caught my attention so I DM'd him about it. Just like totally nonchalantly.

So like maybe I should have made myself clear, I didn't even find this guy attractive really. I mean he's cute but I didn't really think he would be my type. So this was just more of a test to see what would happen honestly...I sent him a message, acting super casual like no flirting- nothing. Well somehow the conversation kept going, he was clearly into it and eventually he asked me out. Like I said before, I didn't even TRY to flirt.

Well, I was like WTF YOLO and decided to go out with him.

So how did it go?

Well, uhm, okay let me try to explain...

  • He wore flip flops: No. Just no. Like are you kidding me?! He is like a lot older than me and he's shlummin around in f*&(ing flip flops!!

  • He didn't pay for me: This is the second time this has happened to me. I spent $8. He spent $30 and he couldn't pay for my $8 meal. OUTRAGIOUS. STILL SHOOK.

  • He was funny but no common interests: Super cool, super laid back and so nice butttt besides the mutual "friend" we had we didn't really have much in common and after seeing how he was dressed I really knew things would probably not work out lol. (I promise I'm not shallow)


The moral of my super embarrassing story is that taking risks can lead to bad experiences but the bad experiences are what teach you what not to do next time. The dating game is hard, but when you don’t put too much pressure on yourself to find your future husband dating can actually be fun (even the bad experiences).   

Hope you enjoyed hearing about my very sad dating life :)
