Happy Tuesday everyone. First off I’d like to send my thoughts and prayers to the people of Houston, Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you would like to donate to the relief efforts, visit www.redcross.org as I pledge to make a donation as well. Staying true to routine I thought it’d be cool to share some dating disaster stories. When browsing, I came across a story on shape.com that I’d like to share with you all.

Bad Date, Take Two
“I’ve been on and off various dating sites for years, and occasionally I end up seeing guys I’ve gone on dates with in the past. Normally, I recognize and ignore them. One time, I agreed to go to drinks with what I thought was a new cute guy who had messaged me. When I walked into the bar, I greeted him warmly. He laughed bitterly and said ‘So, now that you’re still single and getting desperate, you’re willing to hang out with me, huh?’ Turns out, he and I had gone on one date five years ago and had zero chemistry. Not only had he held a grudge, but after he said that, he was surprised when I turned around to leave—he seriously thought I had wanted to see him again!”
Have you ever been rejected before? If so, did you resent the person and for how long? Rejection is never fun, but holding onto resentment for long periods of time is not healthy. At least in instances that are not that serious. I find personally that it is difficult to hang onto anger. It only causes you to feel miserable, while the other person is more than likely living life without a care or care of you. Five years is definitely a long time to resent a girl after only one date. It wasn’t as if they were in a committed relationship and she wrongfully broke up with him. If there is no chemistry more than often it is better to just be friends, if that. I truly don’t know why the man thought she would want to see him again after throwing a petty grudge from five years ago in her face. That is definitely an indication of what she can expect if she were to enter a relationship with him, so I think I would have passed on him once again as well.
