I’m not perfect. I make mistakes, even when it comes to online dating. I accept my mistakes and generally do not dwell on them. But there was one mistake I made not so long ago that had me angry for weeks. I needed a lot of Vodka Red Bull’s to get over the fact that I screwed things up with one of the hottest girls I’ve ever met…before I ever got any from her.
I met this girl named Kristin on my
. I had met a few very attractive women online, but none compared to Kristin. Her body was banging. She was tan, toned, and looked pretty damn close to a porn star. On top of that, she was an intelligent, fun girl that wasn’t full of herself or stuck up. Basically, I couldn’t think of a better chick to hookup with. I really don’t know what she was doing with me. She could have any guy she wanted. I guess I got a bit lucky. Well, until I fucked things up.
It was a perfect evening when we met. The temperature was great (low 80’s with a slight breeze). We agreed to meet at a local pub that was within a 5-minute drive to my house. I like to go somewhere close to home so I can get her back there hassle-free. When she showed up, I had to refrain from completely freezing up. I thought her profile picture was smoking hot, but damn…she looked even better in person. I don’t know how it was possible.
The evening started off well. She seemed into me and I was definitely digging her. I just knew I was going to get some. Her body language was very positive. She smiled when I talked. She laughed at my stupid jokes. And she did not back away when I made physical contact. We each had a couple of drinks but neither of us got drunk. I never recommend getting wasted on a first date.
About 45 minutes into the date, I was getting very close to making my move and suggesting we go back to my place. But then I made a huge mistake. The 2012 US Presidential Election was only days away when this date took place. I was a big Barack Obama supporter. I took a look at the TV screen and made some comment about how much I love Obama.
After I made the Obama comment, she gave me a dirty look and then said, “let’s not talk politics”. I should have just kept my mouth shut. She clearly was not an Obama supporter. But I couldn’t help myself. I made a comment about how great Obama is and that I would be voting for him. She got very angry. So angry that she got up and left and told me I was being very rude by continuing to talk about politics after she asked me not to. And that was the end of the date. All because I had to open my mouth about my Barack Obama love. The lesson I learned from this evening? Never bring up politics on a date. You just never know if she’ll find it offensive.
