My sixth date.

I am starting to get the hang of this dating thing... I am paying attention to body language and what is said at the end of a date to indicate if there will be a second date.
This guy was blah. He was not interesting, not good looking, and had a monotone which made most of the conversation unbearable! He tried to crack a few jokes and they may have been funny if he was able to use other tones to indicate when he was joking and when he was serious. He didn't know what to order so he asked my advice. I told him what I would recommend and then when the waitress came along he tried to flirt with her by asking her what she would recommend, not a smart move on a date... He talked about how he dated a girl who was not Jewish for 4 years and they broke up two years ago and he hasn't been able to get over her since then. He asked me about my past relationships and I told him very little. He asked if I was still friends with my ex boyfriends and I told him that I was. He told me that was compleatly unacceptable to him and that he would not be bale to handle that if we got serious... Well thanks for the heads up buddy! I don't remember ever asking him for his opinion or approval! And aww shucks, it looks like we won't be able to get serious!
He tried to joke around and use insults to try to be funny. They were not so funny, he was not so funny and the date as whole... not so funny. It was an hour of my life that I will never get back.
I noticed that he was leaning into me accross the table, indicating that he was engaged and interested in the converstaion. I, on the other hand was leaning back in my chair with my hands crossed. I noticed that I checked my phone quite often and I checked my watch a few times too. This is a good indication that someone is not interested.
Also, after the date, he walked me to my car (that was nice) and gave me a hug and a gross wet kiss on my cheek and said that he would love to call me sometime but I hadn't given him my number. I smiled and said that I don't give out my number but that I had a really nice time. He said that he would wait for me to call. He may be waiting for quite some time!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another unsuccessful jdate...


  1. It is the waitress' job to be able to recomend something off the menu. I highly doubt that he was hitting on her.

  2. I've now read all your dates. This is a brave thing you're doing, trying to find someone who will not only make you happy, but your mother happy as well. I wish you the best of luck, maybe date #2 will be the right one.
    Can't wait to read more!

  3. I really want to know what happened with the Lawyer! Are you guys still talking?!
