Bad date-o-rama:

Or 10 ways to get your ass kicked to the curb

10. You never ask any personal questions, so that by the fourth date you have no idea that I have a graduate degree or what fields I studied in college.

9. You call me right after I text you. If I didn't call you, then it means that I couldn't.

8. You invite me to dinner then later ask me to cook you dinner.

7. I ask you for a later date time, then you stipulate an even later one. You then proceed to show up earlier than I asked you to, nevermind the time you wanted.

6. You show up dressed down and early.

5. You show up unwashed and early.

4. I look like a hot, foxy momma and you don't say a damn thing about it!

3. By the way, you're moving out of town in a couple of weeks???

2. Yes, there is a thing called dinner conversation. It's interactive and generally themes build upon each other in a stimulating fashion.

1. You try to school me on rocks. If you hadn't committed numero diez you'd know that, yes, indeed, I do know a little about granite.

I recently published an article on the complexities of dating in general and blind dating and online dating in particular – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

How to create your profile?
1. Make a realistic profile. Try to show your best qualities without lying about something you are not. Try to find out what exactly appreciate the other at you;
2. List the most important features you expect your partner to have, but don’t exaggerate, just stick to the real life;
3. Learn to recognize a cheater from a sincere person by reading that person’s profile or by asking a set of questions that would reveal that person’s ego;
4. Start by chatting with more than one person;
5. Try to communicate with that person in an open manner;
6. Study the other’s profiles to help your create a more attractive profile for yourself;
7. Save yourself if necessary and don’t let these kind of virtual reality seize you completely. Give yourself more options in your life and consider virtual reality as one of the many, and not the only way.
