I would like to propose you adopt the “one strike” rule—that is, a rule that states you cut a new woman off immediately as soon as she makes a mistake or does something that pisses you off.Perhaps this seems unduly harsh, but I believe in today’s dating market there are good reasons for guys to adhere to it strictly. It’s annoying, it can be emotionally bruising, but worst of all it’s time consuming.I made friends with a lot of the international students which was cool, because there was a new group of them to get to know every few semesters.” Uh oh.
ast week, I went on my first date with Jack, the young publicist I met through work.
And after I tell you all what occurred on that date, I’m confident you will understand why my first date with Jack was also our last.
“I’d choose a good book or deep conversation over a social event any day.
I hated parties, am not into sports at all, and usually my friends had to drag me out of my room to go out — they still do.
After we talked about the usual first date topics for a while—upbringings, family, jobs, blah, blah, blah— I asked him about his college experience and what it was like (you know, since it was still fresh in his memory).
“To be honest, I hated the academic rigidity of exams and classes, but consider myself an intellectual,” he said.
He met me by the steps of the New York City Public Library and was as cute as I remembered, but slightly younger looking (which was probably just my subconscious reminding me that I was a cradle robber).
He suggested we go grab some coffee and then maybe a bite to eat afterwards, depending on how we felt. “It sounds corny, but I’m one of those ‘my body is a temple’ people.
“You seem like you’d take things farther than I would …
with the guys you meet.” “Well, it seems you’re implying that I’m ‘easy,'” I said, “which isn’t the case at all. I wasn’t sure if he was testing me to see how I’d respond, or if that was really what he thought, but I wasn’t amused. because I was able to weed out one more jerk and move on.
I want a relationship though.” And then the moment that changed it all .
