Hmm...Part III

UPDATE: Well, it was nice. And that's about all I can think to say. Didn't really feel a spark, but that's ok. That's not going to happen every time.

So....uh....If you call to confirm your get to know one another lunch and then spend the next 5 minutes listening about her ADD, restless leg syndrome, neurologists, headaches, sleeplessness, cramps, bloating, and weight gain, should you 1) scratch your fingernail over the mouthpiece and say, "can't....hear....break....up...stup...cell...pho" and then hang up, 2) mention you may be late because you have to meet your parole officer, or 3) set your pager to go off 30 minutes into the lunch and then pretend you have a Priority 1 help desk (this has worked once before).

I'm leaning towards 3.


Aww. Oh well. Gotta start the dating somewhere. Welcome to our world.

None of the above. Go to lunch and tell her that you are tired of this silly dance and you and she should go to bed right now. Might as well take the proactive approach and weed out the garbage part. By the way, the pager move is only for afterwards if she says ok.

HA! Three is the best plan but she will likely see right through it. Especially when it happens again on the second "get to know one another lunch because the first was interrupted"

Bless your heart!! As "C" so aptly stated, welcome to singles' world!! Keep it simple and friendly. If need be pretend, you are having lunch with a friend and stick to light conversation. Let us know how it went.
Happy Thanksgiving!

A lot of dates are like that, hun. Nice people, but just not feeling it. But its way better than being out with a psycho. Be thankful she's not a psycho. You'll get plenty of those soon enough.

Yeah just wait for the psychos. The good part about psychos is they're usually easy money if you know what I mean.
