Needy Ned

March 8th, 2012

I met him online and liked him, but I knew something was off when I heard his suggestions for our first date: sky driving, going away to the mountains for the weekend, going for a helicopter ride, etc. I suggested we grab a bite downtown. When he picked me up, I got into his car and all he said to me was, “So, your place or mine? We can go to mine but I think my Mom might still be up.” (He was 29.) I left early and he text me the next morning saying that I needed to “be more attentive to his needs.”

    After one date? Hell no.

    What you should have done says:

    What you should have done was go sky-diving or a helicopter ride and make him pay for it, and then just leave after the first date.

    My response? “I’m am not your girlfriend. You haven’t earned the privilege to call me that, yet, so until then, I don’t have to be any sort of way for you. And by the way, there’s a difference between being ‘invested’ in someone, and then being someone’s beck and call.”
