I HATE BLIND DATES
Over the years well meaning friends and family have tried setting me up with men. And after each attempt I say never again. Well against my better judgement I allowed myself to be set up by a relative last night. And all I can say is "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE MEN OUT HERE!!!"
The date started nice enough, but progressed to diasterous very quickly. His first mistake was sitting next to me in the restaurant booth, (you know I politely asked him to move to the other side), then he asked me how many men I've slept with in the last year, (none of his flippin business). And the final straw was this statement, made with a straight face, intent on an answer from me. "So, S. what's wrong with you that you are almost 40, childless and still single?" Let me tell you, my mouth hit the floor, hard. I couldn't believe it. Still can't. I looked him in his eye to see if he was serious and the bastard said, "WELL?". Like he was annoyed that I didn't immediately answer. Needless to say, I not so politely told him what an ignorant question that was. Gathered my belongings and told him to go "Straight To Hell, Fucking Asshole!"
Why do me think that we are so desperate for their company that they can say or do whatever they want and get away with it. What woman in her right mind would have continued to tolerate his presense after that kind of behavior?
Yes, I'm single. Yes, I'm childless. And yes, I'm almost forty. But none of that means I'm an idiot who will put up with being insulted on a first date! None of that means I'm so desperate to have a man in my life that I'll accept an ass-hole just to say I have a man. I have and will be fine all by myself before I will ever put up with shit like that again or ever!
So, I'm back to my original rule. NO BLIND DATES!!!
Right now, I can't wait to get my hands on the relative who thought this was the guy for me. He is soooo Dead Meat!!
Sorry about the ranting and bad language. But I needed to get it out. I slept fit-fully last night, and knew if I didn't vent soon the next man I came across was going to have hell to pay. And I'd hate to inflict my bad attitude on someone who didn't deserve it. I think I'm okay now that I've gotten it off my chest.
I hope you all had a better Valentine's day then I did.
