Why Am I On This Date?

I went on a coffee date this afternoon.  I found myself thinking, why am I on this date? A) I should have asked for clearer photos before agreeing to meet him - my fault.  B) I think he wanted someone to listen to his enormous list of problems.  They included how expensive San Francisco is, his train wreck last relationship, his father passing away two years ago, and other topics you wouldn't normally discuss with someone you just met for the first time.  I didn't like the questions he asked me, also things you wouldn't normally discuss when you first meet someone - last boyfriend, darkest secret, broken dreams, et al.

Even worse than the "conversation" if you can call it that, he didn't understand my clear "don't touch me" signs and invaded my personal space.  An example, he tried to put his arm around me, I moved far away and was practically walking in the street.  He did at least five times before I shouted, "What are you doing??!?!!?" 

I ended the date when I saw him looking me up and down very slowly; I should have ended it sooner, but I was trying to be polite.

  1. You should not be too eager to go on a date with someone. Hurrying in the matters of date can put in some really bad situations. Always remember to thoroughly talk with each other before getting to meet each other in real.
