They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Quite often you hear stories of single women lining up with casseroles when a man becomes newly single. Perhaps there is some truth to this, as there is a huge following for the “Love Potions” recipes on the CyberDatingExpert site.
However, as hungry as a man may be, what happens to his manners in the matters of the heart? I heard a story recently about a woman who was going on a cyber-date with a man she met in an online dating site. He graciously offered to meet her for dinner and he suggested the restaurant.
The woman arrived right on time, only to find her Internet dating partner at the table, halfway through his entree. At first, she was confused. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding about the time of the reservation? She asked him if she was late for their date, and he replied with, “No, you are right on time.” Naturally, she found his behavior on the rude side, and walked out of the restaurant.
Seriously, if you are going to invite someone for lunch or dinner, don’t you think you should wait until your guest arrives to order your meal? It was time for her to say “next.”
