Kill Me Now!

What a strange person

Now that I have written a book about weird dates, it is amusing that even my dates know that I have written the book. Instead of asking me whether they are going to be in the sequel, they tell me their war stories. On Wednesday, I had a date with Janet. Janet is not for me at all, into tantra and numerology, but she told me a story of something that happened to her. You be the judge:

It was a fine summer evening and Janet was asked out on a date by Peter. They decided to meet at the Marina. There are many fine coffee shops and restaurants at the marina, all quite willing to make you part with your money. Meals there are not that expensive, quite comparable with a meal at the Waldorf Astoria. “A fool and his money are soon parted,” as mentioned in the rhyme by Thomas Tusser. OK, I admit, I am also a fool.

Peter suggested that he and Janet go for a short walk before they sit down for coffee. Was Peter being romantic? This was their first date after all. Or maybe he was trying to save money. They walked along the marina, a cool summer breeze coming in from the sea and Peter was rambling on incoherently about absolutely nothing while trying to take Janet’s hand. Janet kept resisting, she did not know the guy yet.

After ten minutes of strolling and the constant attempts at contact, Janet said “Can we please find a place and sit down and talk.” Janet wanted to get a feel of the guy. Peter turned to her and said: “Do you think there is a chance that there will be something serious between us?” WTF? They have just met! Did he not get a signal from her rejection of his advances, that it is too early? Passers by would have thought that this was a fencing bout with Janet parrying his every move.

Janet replied “It is too early to know, we have just met. I don’t know you yet. Let us sit down, have some coffee and talk.” Fair enough.

Peter turned to her and said “OK. Let us sit at that coffee shop.” He choose a cheap looking coffee house where the price of a coffee was cheap compared to a steak at the Waldorf Astoria. On the way to the coffee house he asked again: “Do you think there is a chance that there will be something serious between us?” Wise Janet did not answer.

They sit down at the coffee house and Peter sits on the edge of his seat and asks again “Do you think there is a chance that there will be something serious between us?” Janet looked at him and said “I really do not know you. Let us talk for a while.” Why was Peter being so anxious? He looked at his watch. What was his hurry?

Peter then said “What about sex tonight?” WTF? Janet almost choked. What kind of a person is this? What a strange person! What a strange question. Janet replied “No, there will be no sex tonight.”

“Thank you. I have another date waiting for me and I am already late.” He got up and left, leaving Janet with the waiter hovering over her waiting for her to order.

I wonder if Peter will phone her back?

    I hope Peter got lucky with the next date. Sound like a good guy! Remember, gentlemen, it’s a numbers game. If you ask ten women that question, and one says yes, then you’ve achieved your goal. :-)
