And usually, when a guy asks me out, if he doesn’t explicitly says, “a drink”, I suggest – “How about we meet for a drink?”
Funny then (or not so funny) how a good 40% of those guys show up and immediately order food. Sometimes, lots of it. As if they’re settling in for a long evening. Making it nearly impossible for me to leave quickly without being a total bitch. If we both just order a drink, I can leave after 20-30 minutes with a polite, “it was nice meeting you.” But I can’t do that if there’s a table/bar full of food in front of him without seeming a heartless bitch.
This really annoys me. And it’s been annoying me more lately, as more and more guys seem to be doing this (arrive and immediately order a bunch of food, even though I only agreed to meet them for a drink). I think it’s kind of rude of them, actually. But maybe I’m just being nutty.
What’s your take on this?
