My worst first date story: On my fifth blind date via eHarmony (is it still a blind date if you’ve seen a picture but never met in person?)…anyway…I went to meet a woman for lunch at a restaurant. I was right on time as usual. I arrived to find her flirting with the bartender while having a cocktail. After she finished her drink and her discussion with him, we sat down and I saw that she had already ordered and finished half of her lunch. She ordered some ice cream after finishing her food. I ordered and we talked briefly. I was less than half-way through my meal when she excused herself to leave to go bowling with friends. Of course as a gentleman I did pay for the lunch including her cocktail. Others probably have worse stories than this, but this was easily my worst “date”.
It was all a blessing in disguise however as on my very next blind date I met my beautiful, wonderful wife.
