“Well,” she said after a very pregnant pause, “He’s pleasant.”
For my good friend Tiffany, a chatty date led to a surprising revelation about his most long-standing commitment.
“I have a relationship with marijuana,” he told her.
Talk about a first date buzz killer.
LiParentSource.com contributor Amy was stuck in traffic on the Throgs Neck Bridge when a guy in the car next to hers asked for her number. After two lengthy, enjoyable phone conversations, she was surprised that traffic guy showed up for their date with an unexpected guest in tow -- a funeral director friend of his who had officiated at two funerals that day.
The three of them went to an arcade. While Amy’s date and his friend played video games, she tried to figure out an escape plan. Finally, her date and the funeral director took her home.
“He walked me to the door (solo, thankfully!) and tried to kiss me goodnight,” she recalls. “with his friend sitting in the car, watching. Needless to say, we never spoke again.”
Which just goes to show that threesomes of any kind aren’t exactly an ideal first date configuration. On the bright side, Amy's tale proves that you never know what can happen when you play in traffic.
