Dinner and a Movie

So you're on a blind date. You go to dinner... talk about awkward! During dinner, he goes on and on about himself. You can't get a word in edgewise. Plus, he looks kind of creepy! In your mind, you call him "Creepy Guy." You just want to get away from this horrible date!

But sadly, you are obligated to also go to a movie. You show up to the theater. All the movies have already started. Well,... all but one. It's an R rated movie full of sex and such things. That's all you need, right? Watching raunchy nastiness with Creepy Guy. Ewww!

So, do you:

A. Buy tickets for the G rated show that started 20 minutes ago. Tell Creepy Guy, "The beginning is always unimportant anyways."

B. Buy tickets to the next G movie, which doesn't start for 45 minutes. While you wait, go grab some coffee at the nearby Starbucks. Prolong the date even longer... But, hey, caffeine can help any situation.

C. Just go see the nasty movie. Close your eyes, and pretend you're in a happy place.

D. Lie and say, "I've seen that already. It's dumb." Then ask Creepy Guy if he could just take you home.

E. Something original


If you're a guy... then just reverse the scenario. She can be "Crazy-Girl-With-Stalker-Like-Tendencies."

Probably watch a movie that had already started..I couldn't stand seeing the raunchy one with him! I wouldn't want to linger over coffee either.

if i was with a 'crazy girl with stalker like tendencies,' there is no way i'd let her know where i live. i'd rather hitch hike home

oh now that is a tough one....I think I would suggest coffee and tell him that you have an early morning so seeing the next movie just won't do. Coffee then home....

Now you got me thinking....

i'd excuse myself to the bathroom, pull out my cell phone and call a gal-friend. I'd ask her to call me in a few momments and pretend that there's an emergency and i need to come at once.

If theres a movie I really want to see....and I think I'm only missing credits...then I go see it.

Otherwise, I say oh well, maybe another time, and take her home.

While in line buying tickets, hunch over and groan, then run to the bathroom and come out twenty to half hour later telling him that whatever you ordered at dinner did not agree with you and you just needed to go home and go to bed.

I would LIKE to make an excuse and go home. What I would probably do is see the movie.
