Sex and Romance in the New World: Four Nightmare Dates

Let me tell you my story so that others might avoid similar unpleasantness.

Let me tell you my story so that others might avoid similar unpleasantness.

It's funny. I never used to date as much as I seem to now. I don't like dating; nothing about it suits me. I generally believe that people are fucked up, and I try to avoid unfortunate evenings. Lately, my dating life is made up of people I heavily screen. Life is too short to spend time in bad company. Having said that, this post is about bad dates, because I've had them despite my screening process. I guess it is wrong of me to assume that people know how to act right, but after the past few months and experiences, I realize they don't.

Here's a pre-emptive clarification: This is not an anti-men post.This is anti-idiot post. Women as well as men can be a fun treat (sarcasm intended) in the dating world. When men that I date fuck up, each gets my PowerPoint presentation of ways they disappointed me. I now realize I've done them a great disservice by not making that public, so that others might learn from their utter dysfunction. I start today with the first of four of my worst dating experiences.
