Bad dates. We've all been there. I don't know a woman (or man) my age that hasn't been on one. But have you ever been the cause of the bad date? I hadn't... until this weekend. And I am SO utterly embarrassed.
I was out with a guy on a second date and I actually snapped at him. Granted, I didn't mean to get snippy... really. (Personally, I think he kinda deserved it, but that is neither here nor there.) The date was a nice guy, really. But he teased and was sarcastic the majority of the date. I get sarcasm; I do snarky… but not 100% of the time. After a certain point, I can’t take it any more. So I snapped at him. I probably shouldn’t have done it, but I did it anyway. To be honest, it was like I was watching something out of a movie. My inner voice was screaming “NOOOOOOO!” But I couldn't undo it, press the rewind button, or crawl under a rock. Nothing. I just had to apologize and brazen through it.
His response? "Well, that was fun… Other than you yelling at me."
