The One That Left Me Speechless.

They say pictures are worth a thousand words. This one however, left me speechless. Hold on I’ll get to it…

Ok. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever experienced while out on a date with someone? Awkward moment ? Funniest moment ? Well I’ll share my weirdest and maybe one of my most awkward. I once went out for drinks with a guy… Well actually I’ve gone out for many drinks with many guys. But this time was different. The original plan was to go and get drinks. Just fun and low key but on our way to the bar he gets a call from a family member asking him to come to a birthday barbecue at their house. Immediately I did NOT want to go. This was a first date , so meeting his family was a little uncomfortable for me. I barely knew him so how could I sit with a bunch of other people I didn’t know and pretend I was having a good time ? I couldn’t.

We get to his relatives house and he said it was just going to be a quick hello, happy birthday and bye. Well he lied. We ended up staying for a few hours and I felt so awkward being around all these people I didn’t know, including him. A whole family, that didn’t even say hi to me the entire time I was there. Of course I tried to make conversation but it always died off quickly when another family member showed up to the house . Not to mention I didn’t even know where my date was for 3 and 1/2 out of the 4 hours we were there . So I pretty much sat by myself , eating my burger and reading on my phone. God I was so annoyed. He finally comes to find me and asks if I’m ready to go…I was ready to go before we even got there…I tried my best to not sound as irritated as I probably looked so I smiled and said “Yep!”

We’re on our way to the bar and start talking about things we have in common, likes, dislikes. Once we get to the bar , the bar that I had suggested, he ends up knowing half the people inside. Great. When he finishes catching up with all of them he turns his attention to me.

A few drinks in he starts telling me about this Rolex that he bought for himself. Pretending to be interested , I said “Oh really , do you have a picture of it?” He said “Yeah , hold on.” Then he takes out his phone , scrolls through the camera roll and faces his phone towards me. He says “Check this out.” And I shit you not…( no pun intended) it was a picture of him sitting on the toilet, pants around his ankles and all, taking a selfie. He said “What do you think about that?” I looked at him and was lost for words. That doesn’t happen to me very often, but in this case I was left speechless.

It’s getting late and I’m ready to go home. He has to drive me because we came together, the most awkwardly silent car ride ever. We get to my place and I step out of the car. He says, “That was fun, let’s do it again.” I looked at him, smiled , and shut the door. That would be a no. What a shit date that was. Sometimes I wonder what goes on in the minds of these boys…(can’t really say he was a man… But how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? The world may never know.
