Okay, this doesn't come close to the "Cheesy Nut Man" story but I need to get it off my chest.

Dude, when we meet after work at 6:30 and the waitress asks if we want to see a menu in addition to our beer order, don't say "No thanks" and then add belatedly "Unless, you want something Better4me". Really? I was supposed to eat something before meeting you? Really?

Dude, your concerns about your student loans, or how much beer costs, or complaints about your ex wife (divorced 21 years ago ex wife) are not first meeting conversation topics designed to endear you to me.

And when I end the date after 90 minutes (because I'm hungry and am going to go get myself a taco somewhere dammit!) and I say "It was nice to meet you", don't say "Really?" in response to that statement. You knew, didn't you Dude, you knew...

Was it bad that I didn't send a "nice to meet you " text?

Back to the drawing board!

I would of definitely expect we would be eating if someone set the time for 630 after work.

6:30 is definitely an eating time, even if it's only apps.

If I'm on a date and it's time to eat and my date doesn't want anything and I'm starving, I order something to eat. I would just say, "if I'm drinking beer, I better eat something" and order some nachos, wings, cotton candy, raisin brand, a strawberry Snow cone, whatever"...If someone doesn't understand you need some food then...What am I missing. Oh, and if they try to have a wing (which they will) just stick their hand with a fork and have them continue their incessant talk about themselves for your ninety minutes of fun and walk out with some bbq sauce on your lips.


I've wiped the shit off. It can be wiped off you know.

Addendum:
I did send a text this morning. "Thank you for the conversation and for the beer last night. I don't think that we are a match. I wish you the best of luck!"

His reply "NP. Same to you"

So we're cool. (And apparently typing "no problem" is too much of an effort.)

Do you think he is still available? I am in the state of mind where I could easily replace food with alcohol. It is an either/or situation right?

risingfromashes I think there are a few more nutrients in tacos than in beer.
