That is inexcusable. If it happened to me, I would probably chuckle a bit. Especially on a first date, I wouldn't care about the person enough to even get mad.

I would say "then why didn't it work out then, hmmmm? Maybe you should go back to dating them!" and then say "I don't see the point in continuing here", get a doggy bag and leave.

I think I'd go Scarlet O'Hara on him and splash my drink in his face and make an extremely dramatic exit.

Cretin: "I'm used to dating someone better looking than you."
Me: "Oh really? Me too!"

Cretin: "I'm used to dating someone better looking than you."
Me: "Your mother must be VERY attractive then."

So people, how would you react if your date said that they were use to dating someone better loking to you?

Unbelievable! I think I’d like to go with one of these two replies:

I guess one could say "Wow, I was just thinking the same thing about you but I didn't want to be a jerk by saying it out loud."

Or

I understand completely. I'm used to dating someone smarter than you." Then I'd kindly ask, "what became of that better looking someone? She decide prostitution was a step UP? "

If only I could be that quick on the uptake!

Regardless of what I’d say, the date would end very quickly. After all, I wouldn’t want to keep the poor guy form his better-looking prospects any longer than I had to.

Guys, honestly. Monitor yourselves!

Edit: Just read Zardoz's quip about "your mother." OMG!!

I would have a hard tme being rude, even if they were rude first. It's just not me. BUT...he would never get another date, so hopefully he wasn't planning on it.

This is a classic sign of a potential abuser. The first step is to lower your self-esteem. BTDT...never again!

I would probably start laughing, after the initial shock. Then tell him, gosh that is so funny. I was thinking the same thing about you.

I'd tell the guy not to let the door slam his ass when I kick him to the curb side. I'd get out and walk out on him, right then and there. That's low blow, period, end of story.

That's funny I got told once Gee you are better looking in person than your photo. I was speechless. The date did not go well.
If a guy said that to me, I'd say well nice meeting such a jerk as you, don't call me and I won't call you. Ta ra.

I'd take it as a serious evaluation of me, rather than as being rude. I might say something like "But am I smarter than them?"

I have had an experience when someone let loose with a spew of insulting comments about me, and got up and walked out. The man seated at the table next to me put the moronic man in his place - he was still seated looking at my steak dinner that he was going to have to pay for muttering what a **** I was. I had made the comment that he was an arrogant SOB, and gotten up to walk out when the man seated at the table next to us stood up and let loose with his opinion of Mr. no manners.

Okay, first this is way, way different for a guy:

Frankly I'd laugh and say, "Well I should hope so!"

I'd probably be too busy wondering what on earth he was thinking of, saying something like that, to react much at all right away. Followed closely by wondering what might constitute a response both within the bounds of manners and that he deserved. I do not think there is a response that meets both those criteria.

But as for what brought it on, I wonder if travian didn't hit it, back in January:

Since the OP said later that the woman was fairly attractive and the guy was acting tense, I'm pretty sure what happened is the guy listened to too much advice from the stupid dating 'gurus." I'll admit, I looked at some of their websites for some tips. Most of the advice they give is crap, and this guy was trying to follow one of their tips (even though he did it poorly).


It does kinda sound like a terrible misinterpretation of The Mystery Method... which is supposed to be a good deal more subtle and playful than that.

Nice to see, reading on, that he got a drink in the face and a walk-out after all. I'm sure he earned it with the next remark, too!

Before I walk out, I'd tell him, "yeah I can imagine women whom you dated think the same about you too and thus you need to "downgrade" yourself now in order to be dateable. Btw I don't find desperate guys attractive at all. Ciao!"

I'd politely respond with one of the following (whichever "popped" into my head first):

"Apparently so are the people you date!"

"I was just thinking the same thing! I guess that is the difference between us-I have a big heart and care about others feelings, and you have a big mouth!"

"How is a classy sweetheart like you still single?"

"You must date around a LOT!"

"This is a date? I thought you were from the escort agency! That explains the (mole, buck teeth, lumberjack hands etc.) you have..."

Then I would excuse myself and exit stage left!

That is cold. I suppose I would have replied that I was used to dating someone with better manners and left.

I'd tell him that I'm used to dating someone with a REAL penis. Guess that would make us even.

(That is just assinine.)

Could it be that the man referenced here in the OP was speaking the truth.

Maybe his blow-up doll IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!!
