3 years ago my buddy set me up on an arranged date, but prior to going on the date I desired to be familiar with my possible date. After speaking with him for a couple of weeks and being familiar with him we finally decided to have our first date. He was a gentleman he pertained to the airport to pick me up, opened the door and was polite. Our conversation in the automobile had no uncomfortable moments of silence as we headed to our restaurant.
The dining establishment was his choice which was a surprise to me given that it was Ruth’s Chris Steak home. We bought appetiser’s and beverages to begin off the date, we talked and chuckled over dinner and shared some humiliating moments over dessert. In my mind I believed is this night too good to be real. We spent over 3 hours talking and chuckling as the night came to an end the waitress brought our check.
This is where it gets interesting. As he’s frantically checking his pockets for his wallet in my mind I’m thinking he’s joking with me he did have a sense of humor over dinner. Don’t get me wrong I don’t ever mind paying for dinner, but on a first date “forgetting your wallet” might be pushing it especially when you’re having dinner at a steak house. At the end I ended up paying for our dinner which wasn’t cheap, we headed out and drove back to his hotel and it turned out his wallet was left behind now I don’t know if it was intentionally left behind, but it was defiantly at the hotel.
We freshened up and headed out again to continue our night. Till this day my husband and I laugh at my first disastrous date and what’s even funnier is that my husband is the guy who “forgot his wallet.” So my bad experience actually ended up turning into a good one.
