Ok, so you found a cute, seemingly normal guy in the sea of douche bags we, unfortunately, call our dating pool, yet EVERY f*cking man has this uncanny ability to piss you off BEFORE you even meet in person. HOW IS THIS A THING?! We've teamed up with The Single Society to bring you the six things men do before dates which annoy women.
Whether you are in a big city or are in the burbs, choosing a meeting point that is mutually convenient is of utmost importance. Expecting your date to drive two hours or take three transfers on a bus/subway to a bar that is five minutes from where you reside, you're fucking rude. Countless guys on dating apps are always suggesting we meet at a venue that is OH SO accommodating to their location and don't pay any mind to what kind of commute is in store for us. This tells us one of two things: you are lazy as hell, or you are just trying to make it easy for you to take us back to your place. Either way, you sir, are an asshole.
**extra points to the gentlemen that offer to meet somewhere in the lady's neighborhood.
I get it, you want to appear that you are trying to get to know us, but that is the whole point of a date. We will get to know each other then. If the chemistry and conversation aren't there in person it doesn't matter how pleasant our conversation was via text. Make a plan, follow up. Well share life goals and decide if we want to eventually see each other naked when we meet face to face.
**if there is going to be quite a bit of time until you are able to meet, texting to ask about someone's week or something simple is nice. Save getting to know each other for the date though.
We get it, sh*t happens. Deadlines get moved up, flights get delayed and people get salmonella. But for Christ's sake, show up for the dates you plan when humanly possible. Don't be the asshole who has the nerve to actually admit he got too drunk the evening prior to the point where you can't even function enough to have a substantial conversation. EVERYONE. IS. BUSY…and you are probably not that important, so be considerate of other people's time. Also, if you need to ask for a raincheck, make the effort to ask about your date's schedule for the upcoming week and try to make a plan immediately.
As demonstrated in number 3, there are TONS of flakey people on dating apps. If you planned a date and haven't spoken in a few days, follow up early in the day. Before noon preferably. No one wants to wait around checking their phone to see if a date is still on for that night. If we don't hear from you at a reasonable time, we assume we are being flaked on and want to make other plans before it is too late or before we decide whether or not to wash hair/put any effort into our appearance.
It's simple. Just pick a f*cking place. Restaurants and bars are aplenty in most areas. There is no bigger turn off than a guy that is wishy-washy and can't just take the reigns and decide. You also have to be mindful of your choice. Is a live jazz bar really an easy place to have a conversation ? Is the dive or the Irish pub more of a place to get smashed with your buddies during the football game? Wine bars are always a great way to go. The cozier the better. Bitches love wine bars! Also, if you are going out in a neighborhood that you are unfamiliar with, there is this great little invention called the internet, and it is quite resourceful.
I feel I don't need to say much about this. Texting us after you have been out drinking to ask if we want to 'meet up' or 'hang out' is a bush league move. It's desperate. It's sleazy. Don't do it. F*ck off.
And there you have it. The 6 things guys do that piss off girls before a date. Now, ya'll go get your shit together.
