I got set up on a blind date once. A guy I had a class with tried to hook up me up with a friend of his. Very intelligent, not all that attractive, but I thought, what the hell, he seems really smart, and I find brains sexy--maybe this guy will grow on me. Nope. I have since amended that smart guys, who don't condsend, are sexy.
Example: I was trying to be silly and make conversation, so I said "So how about that Global Warming huh? Are you for it or against it?" He said 'What?" so I repeated..."Are you for it or against it" I said with a giant smile on my face to let him know it was a joke. He sat there and stared at me, so I kept going.."Well frankly I am for it...I am cold all the time, and I hate cold feet, don't you?" He then broke into a 20 minute lecture about how awful global warming was, the castrophe facing the earth because of it, and how insensitive I was for being for it.
The date was over at this point in my book.
The whole night he talked about himself, blah blah blah--anytime I claimed little or no knowledge in a subject he brought up he became very patronizing...the dude was only 4 years older than me, but made a point of telling me how young and naive I was at every opportunity.
This guy was a jackass loser with no manners, who was rude to the waitstaff and me.
But this is the best part, at the end of dinner, he asked me if I wanted to go get a drink somewhere, (it was like 8:30) And I said-Nope, gotta go home. So he walked me to my car, and actually asked if he could call me sometime, to which I said "No, I don't think so" Smiled, said thank you for dinner, and good night. Hahaha!
