The Bright, The Bad, and the Bleak:
8 Types of Dates We’ve Had
These days, it’s harder to snatch a good date than winning the lottery. The idea of finding your perfect match is definitely, what dreams are made of, but alas, what we’re looking for seems quite elusive. While there are several apps that can help you find your “The Right One,” we somehow always end up with “The One Here Right Now,” which may not be exactly what we’re hoping for.
Until we land our Happily Ever After, that perfect match, it’s safe to say that we have to go through dates with these individuals first.
The One with the Heavy Baggage
We’ve all been with a person who seems to seek out all the worst possible scenarios. I mean, sure, we’re all going to fail at something eventually, or die someday, but you don’t need a Debbie Downer to remind you about these constantly. We wonder if they see how this date will end.
The One Who Is Constantly Everywhere Else but Here
We realize it’s the digital age, but checking one’s feed while on a date will never be acceptable. If this non-committal person can’t focus his attention on you and you alone for an hour (two, tops), it won’t be too far-fetched to think you’ll always play second-fiddle in this relationship.
The One Who Expects You to Pay for Everything
At first, it would seem extravagant for this date to order the premium stuff on the menu. He chats you up, makes you feel comfy, and everything’s going well. Until you ask for the check, and that’s when he stops acting so big time. And they don’t cough up the dough. It would be alright if we go Dutch on the bill, even pay for most of the stuff that’s been ordered. But, golly, don’t order the most expensive item on the menu when you can’t pay for it. If you can’t afford it, what makes you think I can? And even if I could, why should I?
The One Who Constantly Sells Himself to You
There seems to be a conspiracy in the universe in which we have to go out with a Kanye once in our life, and that kind of date never really ends well. First of all, they’re not Kanye. Plus, imagine being with someone who can’t stop bragging about everything about himself all.night.long. When we’re looking to hire someone, we’ll ask for your résumé.
