Dating in the BOI is BACK!
I know – it’s been some time. I just haven’t been really dating.
I go out.
I get a “wink” on my inactive Match (plow to get me to return)
I might get a “match” on that Tinder app.
Nothing blog worthy.
From now on, I’m switching up the game. I’m sharing YOUR dating stories in the BOI. YOU have probably so many to share, and this is dedicated to you.
Today’s blog entry is about Ms. Negative. Glenn went on a date with Ms. Negative, and this is his story…
App Used: Tinder
# of Dates: 1
Dater: Glenn, a 26 year old 6’2 white male living in Boise, Idaho
I’ve decided to write about the
dating life so that you can understand how freaking weird it can be.
Here are my wonderful stories.
I met Ms. Negative on Tinder (this will be a recurring theme), she was
Cuban, cute and claimed to be an actress. We matched up and then did
the typical tinder dance of texting and snapping each other for a week
to make sure we weren’t being catfished. Honestly everything seemed to
be looking pretty good, so we agreed to meet for dinner in The
Village[ of Meridian] .
We had agreed to meet at 7 so I showed up at 6:30 and
awkwardly sat in my car for 25 minutes and then called her to say
I had just shown up.
Surprisingly she didn’t answer my call so I shot
her a text in which she responded lost my credit card. I can’t come.
Alright… I wasn’t really expecting her to pay, but whatever.
I explained that to her that she wouldn’t be paying, but she claims she’d
still need it. Fair enough. Well, 20 mins later she finally finds her
credit card and I said I’d be willing to wait (1st hint that I should
have left). What I didn’t know is that she lived 45 minutes away, so
at around 8:30 she finally shows up.
We finally sat down at the bar to get a drink and she of course
orders the strongest and largest margarita I’ve ever seen. After the
first awkward 5 minutes she begins to open up. To most people this
would mean talking about your goals, your friends, school or whatever
other normal non crazy people talk about.
Nope, not even close.
Ms. Negative on the other hand decided to tell me about how she’s still in love with her ex, how she hates her parents, how she wishes she could afford to go to Australia and that Idaho is the worst (2nd hint i should have left)
This goes on for a solid 15 minutes before I finally interject and ask if there’s anything positive happening in her life? She just claimed her life is the worst and that she couldn’t wait to leave this “shit hole state.”
During her entire negative and depressing monologue I
managed to share that I was getting ready to interview with the Police
Department the next week .
As the “date” (if you even wanna call it that) progressed so did her
consumption of margaritas. She was three deep and I could tell that
they were taking their toll. We continued to only talk about her for
another 35 minutes (3rd hint I should have left) when she says she’s
this was somewhat fun, but she was ready to leave. Now I should
explain it was in November in Idaho, so it’s like 14 degrees out. I
did the polite thing and walked her to her car. Classic me I had
parked on the complete other side of the village, so here I was
standing outside her car freezing my balls off.
She offered to give me a ride, but followed up with
Oh you’re trying to be a cop right? Is
it a problem that I have like a lot of drugs in my car
oh like I get it everyone smokes weed, no worries.
She hit me with
nah like I have a lot of different things in there.
I got real sketched out and made a break for it.
Just me making a b line for my car. You never realize how huge the village is
until you have to cross it in icy 14 degree weather. When I made it home safe and decided to ghost her (the old tinder cold shoulder), yet two days later she reached out to me to explain
I wasn’t the one for her
Well I wish Ms. Negativity nothing but the best in her journey for whatever she’s looking for and hey maybe she’ll find peace in Australia, her ex, all of the drugs in her car or margaritas that she apparently really likes.
For me I guess I’ll just
keep swiping right
