Disastrous Dates

After listening to a friend’s disastrous introduction marriage date, where her date spent the whole night complaining about living at home and suggested that if they got married they would be living with his parents, I was reminded of some of hideous dates that my family had organised for me.

Date Number 1: Short, tight and asked a number of questions like what would I cook if we his mum was away and we had lots of guests. I would have preferred, do you like cooking?

Date Number 2: Pendoo.

Date Number 3: Boring. Looking for a housekeeper and maid for his Mum. I would have to become vegetarian and would not be allowed to drink alcohol in the house. I guess he was another Pendoo.

Date Number 4: Great fun but we were not attracted to each other. We did however become great friends.

Date Number 5: Pest. Wouldn’t take no for an answer. At one stage my gran even got involved. When I said that I didn’t find him attractive, her reply was “What has that got to do with anything, just marry the man”. OH NO!!

After 5 unsuccessful introduction marriage dates over a number of years, I decided that it was enough and I would find love the western way. He would ride on his white horse and whisk me away….

  1. Bunty, very funny post especially your gran’s comment.

    My mum thinks it is awful to call someone ugly which is one of the reasons I gave for not taking up her offers of introductions. No time for diplomacy even though beauty is ofcourse subjective…

  2. Bubbly – what a fantastic set of dates – I loved the pindoo comments too! I hope they had side partings and combs in their breast pockets!

  3. Oh dear, I am newly back on the dating scene and stories like this make me want to go into hibernation for a while instead of meeting people… I’m sure I’ll be adding to this list of horrific dates soon enough…

  4. I’ve also been on some howlers but I almost love being on bad dates as I can’t wait to laugh about it with family and friends!
