Ok, so you all know I’m “dating” again right? Well, it’s sorta been really sucking considering I’ve been dealing with the whole anti-social thing. But alas, I went on a date with some poor sappy fool who I felt bad saying no to, even though I knew I wasn’t “feeling” him.
Yesterday we went to the Upper West Side for dinner, which was to commence at 6 sharp. Now, let me start by saying that he lives in Jersey, had train problems and didn’t arrive until about 7:15, I know, not his fault, but fuck him, I WAS ANNOYED. Ok, I tuck that, put it aside and think I’m gonna enjoy this evening out. Well, MY GOD! I was mortified to be seen with him! Ok, YES, I know what he looked like, I’ve seen pictures. And YES! I’ve spoken on the phone with him for like 2 weeks, but I knew he wasn’t my cup of tea, yet still, I went. There really wasn’t anything wrong with him, he just wasn’t what I was into and he was a bit of a guido. Also, all he kept talking about was the New Jersey Jackpot and Power Ball…. UMMMM…. I REALLY DON’T GIVE A FUCK BUDDY! Yeah, so I scoffed down my food, but mid way through he started talking about going to Central Park after dinner, now I wanted to bail STAT. So I slowed down my eating and told him half way through that I wasn’t gonna be able to. Since he was an hour plus late, my sitter had things she still needed to do (thank god for the cop out). Sorry buddy. He was dissapointed, but I really didn’t give a crap!
So now dinner is done, check comes and I start putting my scarf on (your girl isn’t trying to waste another second with this dud.) He wasn’t to pleased I must say. So here we are on 83rd and Amsterdam and I’m all like “I’m gonna take a cab home because I really have to be there soon” it’s a bit after 8 at this point. Mind you, the train I need is about 3 blocks away. So we walk out the door, I give him a quick half-hug and thank him, but what does he do? One, he hugs me for dear life and two, he goes for my lips! WHAT!?!? Can you NOT READ THE SIGNS??! Quickly I give him the cheek and pat his back and say “Uhh, you don’t have to wait around, there is a cab right there” and I pretty much trow myself into on coming traffic!
“Hi, can you take me to the train station on 81st and Central Park West please?” 6 bucks in cab fare later, I’m well fed, done fleeing and on the train heading home and will NEVER talk to that dud dude again!
