“I only ever met one guy from Tinder. He seemed nice enough on chat but was kind of pale and sweaty in person.
For our first date he decided the best place to go was an Indian take away for a plate of curry. Now I am not against eating any kind of Indian food but a take away? Why eat stuff that’s been sitting in a baine marie for two days? And pay $9.50 for two curries and rice?
I declined to eat anything because I had actually thought we were going for coffee and I wasn’t that hungry.
He started sweating halfway through his curry and then decided he wanted to help me set up my own business and kept badgering me to do this and that. Throughout this conversation he kept sweating as he ate his curry and wiping his sweat with the tiny paper napkin they give you with a plastic fork and knife. Soon it was just a little ball of sweat soaked paper that left little flecks on his semi shaved face.
I never saw him again.
I dont understand how men think. Did he take me out for curry to make me feel comfortable? Or to show off how he could eat spicy food? Why eat something that’s guaranteed to make you look unattractive, especially the first time you meet someone?
On a date, I go out of my way to avoid things like burgers and eating with chopsticks. I know with chopsticks I am likely to fling the food into someone’s eye. With a burger I have to lick mayonnaise off my fingers (can’t wipe it off with a tissue, it is too delicious!) and I always manage to take a giant bite when he asks me a question and then have to wait till I can chew politely by which time I have forgotten the question!
Like burgers and chopsticks on dates, I also avoid Tinder like the plague. In fact I havent been on a date in three years. I enjoy flirting vicariously though by watching reruns of Sex And The City because why the hell not.”
