Peril of the Week – The Girl with an Extra Accessory
A gentleman recently wrote into the site to tell his story about a woman that he had met online who he really liked.
We all know that first impressions matter. One will notice your table manners, if you are sending text messages during dinner, or have your iPhone or BlackBerry on the table, it’s typically a turn off and could result in a bad date. All of these issues will make the difference on whether you will make it to the second date or not.
This gentleman had great phone chemistry with his date. He was looking forward to an evening of wining and dining. She apparently was on a strict diet of protein and salad. Although he preferred a more balanced meal, he accepted this….until, she took out a scale that had a rectangular plastic container that she put her salad in to weigh. He understood that she might have been on a diet, but thought she could have estimated its weight vs. actually weighing it in public. That was the end of a romance that could have been. He knew he should have been more sensitive, but wondered, couldn’t she just estimate how much to eat? He thought someone should give her some dating advice and leave the scale behind on her next cyberdate.
