  • Cracker: Rate my Date,

    I'm afraid I fall into the "chicks with kids"category. But that did'nt seem to make to much difference when I signed up online with a dating agency, because I met quite a few really nice guys. Perhaps being 30 something helps, because, lets face it, most of us have either kids or at least a small carry-on size amount of baggage at this age!! The one date that sticks out for me, was the "accountant/DJ" (!!??) that I went out with. Once.
    At first sight he was at least 20kg heavier and half a metre shorter than his profile..and after drinking 3 bottles of wine whilst incessantly talking about how great he was, he took me back to his place to see his "renovations"..(I know) I think it was the 9000 inch TV that caused the most alarm. And after sitting facing me with fingers steepled, he misread my horror at him, as a sort of shy unreadiness for how great he really was. "I can see you're not ready for this.." he said softly. I asked him to take me home. On the way he says "Can you sing? Because I can.." and then horrifyingly, he launched into a terrifying falsetto "By the look in your eyes, I can tell your gonna it over me...?!"
    I dug my nails into my arm to stop the pain, and after he stopped singing I was home, and I said " Er, thankyou..see you later"
    "Maybe.." he said with a smirk and one raised eyebrow.
    "Maybe." Still, I was unperturbed, and have met my guy since, we've been together for nearly three years now, and as long as he takes his medication, we're sweet as!
