"The date ended pretty fast. She said she was jet-lagged because she flew in from Florida.”

"That's the same time zone. She also flew Sunday, and it was Wednesday."

I wouldn't sport that beard unless I had a 99 mph fastball and a brutal cutter

isn't That WHY GOD created Razors?

Peter said...

Perhaps she saw him and thought, "OMG- a Trump voter!"?

Sebastian said...

Jet-lagged was just Trump-speak for really tired. Get with it, people; don't be so literal. Go with the flow of our prose-poet-in-chief.

These are hilarious.

Best Line: “He made a lot of upsetting jokes. He talked about going to camp and how they used to throw semen at each other. I kind of just smiled and nodded through the whole thing.”

That's a rough beard, brah.

Afterward
Samantha: “We both said we were tired, and I called an Uber and he offered to wait, so that was nice. He asked me for my phone number and texted me his full name.”


These kids today, amirite? Texted me his full name--I chuckled.

Alex:♥♥ “It felt less like a date and more like a meeting between two classmates who were forced into a group project. That was the entire connection that we had.”

If I understand the concept that's pretty much correct, right?

Undateables: Brittany & Mark

What the hell? I guess I gotta get out there--super cute 26 yo nurse this guy treats kinda badly (and who apparently isn't her type at all) makes out with him the first night they meet? Geez.

I think it's funny that some young people are ready to own the label "undateable."

Kind of an achievement, isn't it?

You can get yourself into a frame of mind where you think: What I am is so me — and I gotta be me — and there's just nobody who fits on all points.

I love this column. I'm going to read them all.

I used to fly to Miami every two weeks. It worked okay. Spring wasn't as exciting as usual, is all.

I think I'll go kiss my wife and tell her, "Thank you."

A global phenomenon of sort

You're attracted, or you're not. If you not attracted but polite, you make some excuse. Bravo to her.

I remember when I was in high school, and everyone wanted to grow a beard. It made you look older, and mature. That was 1974.

One of my high school buddies continues to sport a beard. Yes, it still makes him older, and more.........

madAsHell said...

This is also why wives should shave their pussies.

David said...

He's 30 minutes late and she is into her third drink? Head to the nearest exit, man. The chick is trouble.

R.J. Chatt said...

When I was in college the typical lame excuse for not going out with a guy was unbelievably, "I have to wash my hair."

Zach said...

His ideal date is a bar that has Mario Kart?

I don't think he's clear on the concept.

Zach said...

It's a first date. You have to pretend to be interesting.

Matthew Sablan said...

"He's 30 minutes late and she is into her third drink?"

-- Thirty minutes late? I'd have to say maybe both of them should have ran for the door.

Bob Loblaw said...

Nah. He showed up thirty minutes early already three drinks in.

That seems like a lot for a first date. Even if I drank often enough that I could put away three drinks without anyone knowing, I wouldn't necessarily want her to know that.
