Jimmy is Italian, and 28 years old. He told me about this girl he went on a date with for the first time. He didn’t know her very well, having only met briefly at a bar in the middle of the day. The bar was crowded, he looked around and saw an empty chair at a table occupied by an attractive girl, he asked if she would mind if he sat down, she didn’t.
They started talking and he thought they had a lot in common, so he asked her out and she accepted. They decided to meet at that very same bar on Saturday night at 7:30, from there they would hit a club. He was really looking forward to their date, she seemed lovely, and he wanted to know everything about her. He spent more time than usual getting ready for their date because he wanted to make a good impression….that was time he’ll never get back.
When she arrived at the coffee shop she ordered a coffee with 2 martinis, this took Jimmy by surprise, but it was Saturday night, maybe she had a rough week, or maybe she was nervous about the date, so he put it out of his mind.
Then, on the way to the club, she pulled a joint out of her purse and asked him if she could smoke it in the car. He said no of course, and told her to wait until they got to the club to smoke it, which she did on the way from the parking lot to the front door.
When they got into the club she ordered 4 shots of tequila. The contrast between the graceful dancers in the club and his sloppy drunk date was apparent to everyone.
She was slurring her words and stumbling, to say she was ‘ feeling fine’ would be an understatement. He couldn’t wait for the date to end.
Finally, at the end of the night he drove her home being careful not to speed because that was all he wanted to do. When they got to her place she invited him up for a ‘night cap.’ Jimmy politely declined saying he had an early day but offered to walk her to her door to make sure she got in alright. She was offended that he didn’t want to go up to her place and let him know it. She told him she could make it into her house just fine, that she didn’t need a chaperone, especially a ‘pussy’ like him.
As he watched her fall up the stairs, losing a shoe on the way, he thought of Cinderella and realized that Prince Charming dodged a bullet in this first date disaster!
