Speed dating stories
Speed Dating is a scary story about a man who wants to find true love, but can’t find a woman that lives up to his expectations. My mother kept asking me when I was going to find myself a nice girl and settle down. The event was being held at a fashionable bar in the city center.
I assured her it was only a matter of time, but I knew that was a lie. All of my friends were already married and some of them even had kids. I dressed in my best shirt and pants, splashed some aftershave on my neck and left the house.
Approximately two months after the man I thought I was going to have babies with and I broke up, I decided to plunge back into the dating scene.
I hadn’t had any kind of rom-com meet-cute with a hunky guy, no friends were begging to set me up, and my last experiences with online dating had gone like this: guy who cried on our first date because his dad left when he was a kid, guy who farted in the movies so loudly that the old lady in front of us shushed him, and guy who called me a whore during brunch and then asked me out again.
I was shocked when I saw how many other people had shown up. When the buzzer sounded, it meant your three minutes were up and it was time to move on.While that may impress some women in Chicago, here in DC where there are more lawyers than cherry blossoms, I was not impressed. And it started to go down hill so fast from there I thought I'd get motion sickness. When everyone was ready, the buzzer sounded and the speed dating began.The first girl I sat down with was 21, much too young for me. The third woman was really ugly and I caught a very bad smell from the fourth.
