How To Get Rid Of A Guy In One Weekend

When you are out on the dating scene you inevitably come across a few frogs before meeting your prince or princess. The meeting of said frog just so happened to a girlfriend of mine this past weekend.

She met him over the internet on one of those dating sites. She thought his picture was adequate so she decided to give the guy a chance. She contacted him. She waited with baited breath to see if he would respond as she reached out to several guys prior on this particular site but non responded back so her ego and self esteem were a little bruised to say the least.

The very next day as she is checking her email she sees one from the guy she contacted the day before. YES! She thought. They did the prerequisite email back and forth before they decided to exchange phone numbers.

After talking over the phone they decided to meet a few days later for coffee at a nearby Starbucks.

My girlfriend arrives and scours the place but does not see him so she takes a seat and waits. A few moments later she spots a guy that looked a lot like the guy from the net so she motions for him to join her. He sits for a second and she sees almost immediately that he is not really her type but she decides to soldier on. They move the party over to the nearby restaurant that resembles a Boston Market just a few doors down.

Things are ok. They laugh and joke. Things seem to go very well except there is so chemical reaction. No spark. Nothing. Oh well, maybe he could be a good friend at least she thinks to herself.

A few days later he calls my friend and asks her out again. She agrees thinking that she’ll give it one more chance. He suggests dinner at a restaurant close to her home. Bonus for her. They meet and again, great laughs, good conversation but no spark. The check comes and of course he pays. They talk about events going around town the next day and decide to meet up and enjoy the beautiful forecasted weather and hang out.

They meet up the next day as planned. My girlfriend buys the tickets to the first venue they attend and he buys for the second venue. They then decide afterward to walk to the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore to enjoy a nice lunch. My girlfriend decides to pay for lunch since he paid for dinner the night before. This was actually pretty calculated on her part. She, by this time, had already decided to dump the poor fella and didn’t want him to think he was stiffed for an expensive dinner so she paid this go round.

After lunch they walk to their cars. He offered to drive her to her car as his was closer and hers was about 4 blocks down the street. She agreed. Now they have to walk through a shopping center to get to the garage. They spot a Coach store and my friend just had to go in. There is no way on God’s green earth she would ever pass up going into a Coach store. It’s just not going to happen. Anyway, naturally she sees a beautiful bag she just had to have and proceeds to the register to pay for it. “$400.38” The sales lady exclaimed. My friend reaches into her purse and pulls out her debit card and pays. They walk out of the store.

It’s been 4 days and my friend just called to tell me she still has not heard from him.

Is that all it takes to rid yourself of undesirables?

Nice.

I guess so. He must've thought she'd be expensive after the wining and dining romance phase dies down.

Or he feels embarrassed that she's richer?

searchingwithin said...

Either that, or he "just was not that into her" either.

~Best Wishes~

that is too funny and I am so glad I am married! The dating scene scares me.

That's hysterical!

Guess he thought he couldn't fill the purse so he better quit while he was ahead.

Tanyetta said...

What Tonya said.

That's why I don't carry a purse. Probably also why I get stuck with the frogs for longer than the week they deserve.

MP said...

lol! he got intimidated and ran off. Lucky her i guess.

SSC~ The Domestic Diva said...

That is funny!

Trixie said...

At least she GOT to date him before he dissapeared! She's just bummed he did the dumping before she did!

CC said...

Basically, yes. Guys have some sensitive egos. I never say what I make and I sure as heck don't like going shopping for myself around them. Most women make more than men, so if a man sees you paying for a costly item and he's been taking you out all this time, he might feel some kind of way. I like men to pay on the first two dates b/c I think it's the gentlemanly thing to do but I get his point if he's dropping money on all these outings and you are saving up buying some Jimmy Choos. It is what it is!

He may have been feeling the same as her the whole time.

Joe said...

Only the insecure ones.

I once dated a guy who's idea of a nice gift was to send me a free Coach e-card.

FUNNY!

Wow, this theory doesn't work on my husband-- I spend his money all of the time and he just keeps hanging around...wait, no he didn't. He SAID he was deploying, but how do I know that's really where he went?

Amber said...

Oh my gosh. What a story and it makes me sooooooo glad to be out of that scene altogether!

Just move on now and you'll meet the best. As you've said you'll meet frogs first before the prince or princess, so tell your friend to move on and meet the best for her.
