Tinder Date Turn Embarrassing

There was a time I looked to online dating to find Mr. Right. As it turns out no prince but a lot of stories to tell. There was a gentleman who had grabbed my attention long enough for a second date.  After having a pub meal the waitress came to ask if we were on one check or separate. I knew my date wasn’t the most financially stable and he unexpectedly drove 30 minutes out of town for B-Dubs. With this in mind I kindly suggested we split the bill. Without hesitation he gave a sigh of relief and lipped ‘thank you.’

When the waitress returned she tapped the check book and with a big smile said “It’s all good!” I gave her the look of confusion and replied “Well I’d hope so otherwise I need to check my bank account.”

Again she replied “It’s all good” with that same cheesy smile.

I looked at my date and thought ‘awe he is so sweet going behind my back and covering my meal’. I then voiced these inner thoughts by asking “Did you..did you cover the bill?” He gave me a blank stare, a shake in the head and a light “no.”

At that moment I assessed the situation and added the math “…..We have to go!”

“I’m still drinking my beer” he said with question and little to no understanding.

Now at this point my anxiety is heightening and I am praying what I calculated doesn’t happen. By the way have you guessed where this is going? Most people don’t. If you figured it out at this point comment below with a #hayliestory.

Fifteen minutes go by and I am starting to relax. He is almost finished with his tall boy and I am home free. A different waitress from the opposite end of the restaurant approaches us. I start thinking ‘oh no my card didn’t go through.‘ She reaches the table with a welcoming smile and a white receipt in hand. She hands the paper to me and says “the gentleman over there wanted me to give this to you”

The receipt consisted of the following:

a number    (444)-555-555

a name         Roy “Something”

and……..     YOUR WELCOME

My face was beat red and my date didn’t look much better.

“Well that is what I get for taking a pretty girl out; another man pays for her bill”

“No please this never happens..really I am more of an ugly duckling like… this never EVER happens. I’m so sorry. I’m embarrassed.”

Needless to say I never went on another date with this guy which is how my 2 date rule began. As for the Roy Something well I never texted him because not only did he embarrass me on my date he spelled “Your” possessively and not conjunctive. Today I laugh it off as another #hayliestory.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great photos or video
    clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video
    clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

      Thanks! Glad you enjoy it. My best advice is to do what you are passionate about and focus on good content. Quality not quantity. As far as what platform that is up to you. I personally like WordPress but there are other sites like Wix and Squarespace; it all depends on what you are going for. Hope this helped. Happy Blogging!
