17 Habits That Could Completely Ruin A First Date
“How about when I was invited out with a guy I met online to a nearby sushi place. We texted and chatted for about a week ’til I finally felt comfortable meeting him. Date picked me up. The conversation on the drive there was great. Seemed like we were connecting.
However, while at the restaurant, he proceeded to order about $100 worth of sushi, while I ordered maybe a roll and some appetizers. My total would have been about $30, at most. I tried to engage him, but quickly realized the conversation was lacking, because he was…uh. busy.
He proceeded to text on his phone the entire time at dinner, ignored me, and took pics of his food, posted that the place we were at was amazing. He. Ate. Everything. In. Front. Of. Him. OK. Gotcha.
At this point, I knew what was going on.
And…when the bill came, he was still on his phone, posting, texting, laughing at the response to his posts. He ignored the waiter, plus the bill. The waiter politely left it on the table. I looked at my date, then the waiter. Date never looked up from his phone.
I then quietly, and politely asked the waiter to split our bill (since date was so consumed with his phone, he didn’t notice). Waiter retrieved the bill, adjusted it, then came back. With separate bills this time.
The look on my date’s face when he was handed a $100 bill for his food was priceless. I paid mine with my card, plus a hefty tip. Date asked me, ‘Uh, oh crap, I forgot my wallet! Can you spot me?’
I just pretended I was on my phone and left him there, and walked out the door. I’d already ordered an Uber at this point (since he drove us there). And yes, don’t worry, the waiter got a massive tip, about the amount of my bill — it wasn’t his fault that the date was an asshat.” —u/justanaccount80
