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.
