World’s most awkward first date.

On a whim, I decided to stop by Starbucks to catch up on life. You know, respond to e-mails and write blog posts and stuff. I came in ready to conquer the digital world.

Little did I k now, I was positioning myself to be right next to two REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE situations.

To my left was a guy that kept unzipping his pants.

but to my right, you guys.


I live tweeted the whole thing but I didn’t want you guys to miss out on the fun, so I screen capped my tweets to share right here on my blog.

You are all so very welcome.

It was so weird. I kept wanting to see if she needed an “emergency” phone call where she had to run, or if she was at all annoyed by his really cocky attitude. and more than anything else, I had really hoped to be able to see how they parted ways. A hug and pleasant words? Perhaps no hug and an uncertain understanding of what happened next? Would she be excited? Oh man. I just wanted to know SO BADLY, but I decided to go to church instead.

Have you guys ever witnessed a weird first date? The worst part of this one is that I couldn’t figure out if the girl was just being polite or if she was really into him. To each their own, but the guy was freaking CRAZY!

    At least it wasn’t you who was on the date with that guy.

      SO TRUE… though i feel like i’ve definitely been on dates that were awkward ahaha.

    Ahh, it totally stinks that you couldn’t see how it ended!! I’m SOOO curious about what went on in the girl’s mind! WOW!

      I KNOW!!! i just want to know if she was being polite (because i have TOTALLY been that person before) or if she was actually interested in him.

    In university a group of us were out to dinner one night and sat across from a man and a women. For the life of us we could not figure out if they were father and daughter or if they were a couple on a first (or one of their first) dates! This was almost four years ago now and I still think about the weird interactions we witnessed!

    laughing aloud in my school’s shared workspace “office” thing–THIS IS FREAKIN HILARIOUS. can’t wait to share it on fb ๐Ÿ˜€

    I have been on my fair share of awkward first (and only!) dates!

  6. November 18, 2015 / 11:26 am

    WAIT THIS GUY IS SUCH A WEIRDO. “I don’t have friends” and then “Do you do anything social?” Ummm, excuse me? Also “I don’t like to talk about myself” but ALL HE DOES is talk about himself. Yikes.

    Do you think we’ll be able to experience one of these at Lionheart? Or hopefully our blate isn’t an awkward live-tweetable first blate…yikes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    sooo turns out this is even funnier reading it through the 2nd time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. November 18, 2015 / 1:12 pm

    Hahaha. This was ridiculous. I was reading your tweets to Nate as you were live tweeting it and we just couldn’t figure this guy out!

  9. November 18, 2015 / 4:01 pm

    Oh my goodness! How awkward! And, I LOVE people watching/listening!

  10. November 18, 2015 / 10:08 pm

    Hahaha this is a crazy world now-a-days… I kind of am glad I was not dating when social media was around… he sounds like a real winner LOL

  11. November 18, 2015 / 10:21 pm

    Best part was when he talked about the right side of her smile. Like, what?! Makes me think of that awful MTV show where people went on bad first dates and got paid based on how long they could stick out the awful… haha, poor girl.

  12. November 19, 2015 / 5:28 am

    I remember when you live-tweeted this…it’s hysterical. What a weird guy.

  13. November 19, 2015 / 9:45 am

    Haha! That is so awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. November 19, 2015 / 9:58 am

    LOL this is so crazy! I don’t know how you even kept enough composure to live tweet it! I would have been doubled over laughing the whole time.

  15. November 19, 2015 / 10:02 am

    This was hilarious. Did she even speak? I’m going to now spend all weekend sitting in coffee shops hoping to witness something half as entertaining.

  16. November 19, 2015 / 11:16 pm

    Bahaha. First dates are the WORST but this one is even more awful than normal!

  17. November 20, 2015 / 8:00 am

    Oh. My. Goodness. I just really want to know how the girl was responding to all of those sentences!!!

  18. November 23, 2015 / 7:54 pm

    How crazy! I love that you live tweeted it, so entertaining! I walked into a restaurant where people were meeting on a blind date and it was pretty awk but I didn’t hear as much of it as you did this one!

  19. November 28, 2015 / 12:33 am

    Now I’ve had some bad tinder dates but this is hilarious!

    Oh my goodness this is fabulous. Facial hair? Reading old texts? And so many contradictions.
