Does planning matter when dating? Or am I just that anal and obsessive compulsive?
Mr. Nice guy tells me that we are going to the movies on Friday. Cool! I would not be getting off until 6pm. I informed him that I would go straight home and get dressed. I never took into account that he had not told me a time,but I blew it over.
Friday comes and 6:00pm also comes. I go straight home and began to get ready. I was ready by 7:00pm. 7:30 comes and goes and 8:00pm arrives. He arrives shortly after. He asks what time does the movie start.
Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh…I would love to meet someone who can actually plan something! Am I expecting too much? You asked me out. I did not know I was suppose to seek out this extra information.
Since I am pretty much dateless, I searched on my phone for movie show times. The next movie would start at 8:25pm. He speeds to the theatre. I questioned the importance of my life. He becomes aggravated. We arrive at the theatre and the movie is sold out. He looks at me and ask what did I want to do.
I really just wanted to go back home. Heck, I had to be at work bright and early Saturday morning. The thrill of a date was gone so I said it doesn’t matter. He said I’ll at least take you to dinner then. So to dinner we went. It was a quiet dinner but I guess he can try better than he can plan.
There is nothing wrong with planning. There is a time for spur of the moment and the non planning of events. However, if you ask someone out have some sort of plan.
