yeah............but it's kind of 'close', Bob!!! SO - I'll just foist myself on the same train...............(just to make you feel better)

When HE shows up looking like my GRANDFATHER!! YEE gads that happened to me for a lunch 'date' at Marina Jacks! I saw the white shoes and the white hair and the 'pocket protector' and almost ran for the hills!

I'm NOT a 'lunch drinker' but I had 2****ails.............and he STILL looked like my
Grandfather!

1. You show up inexplicably late.

2. You spend the entire date talking about yourself, your ex-husband, and all of the rich, successful men who've wanted to marry you (and how you should have picked one of them, instead of your ex).

3. Bad breath.

4. You are touch-phobic. Okay, I'm not a grabby guy, but if we're walking through a rutted parking lot with you teetering in your high heels, and I offer you my arm... take it!

I actually had one date that included all of the above. The kicker? Decided to give her a second chance (I'm an idiot, I know, but she was gorgeous), and she stood me up.! Serves me right....

Hey openwatercaptain - what about those who want to show you their mug shots????

I really love the ones who break the date by not showing up, no call until much later and then expect another shot at it.

I can't Say I've ever been on date where they "bumped" into their ex. I have been on dates where they talk about their ex a lot. If a person needs to start talking about their ex on the first date, I tend to think they are not really ready to get involved in a new relationship. Going on a date with a person who is bitter about, just about everything is definitely a deal breaker!! Manners on a first date can go a long way!!

Suni

What is even worse is having people with that dang blue tooth in their ear that you can't see. You hear them talking and not sure if they are speaking to you or not. If someone met me for the first time with one of those in their ear, I think I would immediately walk away.

Perhaps those things in their ears aren't really phones at all. Perhaps they are just designed to look like that because "they actually are talking to themselves"
And that could be because they find themselves so very interesting to talk to????

Mike, what would be worse, is that they try talking to you while they are still trying to chew that roll YUCK

Friend of mine went on the first-date and discovered the guy had really bad ROAD RAGE!! Not sure if that is an indication of how he would be in a relationship, but would be a deal breaker for me. It would have me concerned

Bob, have you ever seen that comedian Bill Ingals (Engalls) who does that

"Here's your sign"??? #'s 8 and 10 sure would fit lol

Almost like when your car breaks down, you are sitting on the side of the road and a person stops and asks "car problems"

Suni I thought I had left all the bubba's behind in TX, however, they appear to be EVERYWHERE lol. Yep, I quickly turn and run at the mention of that name or as you said someone with two names for one. They might want to take me out four wheeling in the MUD! I am somewhat adventursome but getting jossled around and muddy is not what I call fun.

Oh, had a friend who on her first meet........the guy READ to her from a Astrology book all evening, telling her about herself (yawn) then when she said they should call it a night, thought that meant to GO FOR IT!!


I think all these bad dates....perhaps have the wiring in their brains either not connected or backwards

Ok true story. I took this woman to lunch. I road 50 mils to give her a ride on my bike and go to lunch. She tells me about her soon to be abusive Ex. then starts to cry in the middle of lunch. tells me she has to go to court the next day. I tell her to be happy she will be done with the guy. Then she says that she has to go to court for atempted murrder. She had cut her soon to be EX with a knife and left him for dead after he stoped her on a back road. I got her home quik and never saw or heard from her again.

Not only that I had put a brandnew Helment($150.00) on her porch (she didn't want to wear it) and I was in such a hurry to get away I forgot it. No way I was going back.

I had another one (10 yrs older than her pic) I met for dinner after she wanted to get coffey. We had just sat down and I showed her my tattoo and she jumped up knoking her chair over and started screeming at me about devileing my body. Everyone was looking to see what she was screeming about. I thought about saying something about her being overwaight but didn't. I picked up the coffey and droped them in the trash and told her if she wanted a ride home to get in the truck. I droped her off and never saw or heard from her again.

I met a guy at Down Town Disney who was very very late . I tried calling him to make sure he was alive and well and he never answered his phone. He apologized for being late and said he left his cell phone at home. Moments later it rang in his pocket. He acted shocked and surprised that he had it with him all the time, and it must have had some terrible malfunction. He was a terrible actor by the way. We went to dinner although I had already concluded this would be a one time meeting. He tried to be charming and make up for his poor behavior. I tried to be social. At the conclusion of dinner , he said you are not going to believe this but I forgot my wallet , I guess you will need to pay. I smiled and said I am afraid not. I rose from that table and walked away. I mentioned to the server on the way out that there is a possibility that the gentleman I was dining with may try to walk out without paying. He called me the next day to ask when he could see me again.

here are some dealbreakers for me...

He reeks of the very distinct odor of cigarettes.
He never stops talking about himself long enough to find out anything about me.
He has his eyes glued to my chest and never makes eye contact.
He intently watches the sporting event on the TV in the sports bar and I know that he has not heard a word I said.
He flirts with the waitress .
He speaks in three word sentences and has the intelligence of a amoeba .
He keeps calling me baby or sweetheart and never says my name once( since he unlikely has no idea what my name is)

Cajun so sorry about the loss of your friend, its never easy saying goodbye to someone you care about . Life is funny sometimes, it seems like those who live their life on the straight and narrow, and are loving and kind are taken from us to soon. May peace be with you during these difficult times.

Leaving someone at a restaurant door is very poor behavior, but I think after I got over the initial surprise I would be thankful that he showed his true colors from the get go. Yes most often there are always two sides to a story and somehwere in the middle lies the truth. Sometimes it is just as it is. There is no way to justify leaving someone like that regardless of the reason. I think we all have felt like running off from time to time. Its far braver and respectful to simply indicate , I am sorry but I do not think you are right for me and end it properly. Kindness is such a dying art , we need to resurrect it.
