There’s been a lot of buzz lately about how to detect a date who’s “Not That Into YOU”.
What about routing out a Romeo whom “YOU Should Not Be Into” ?
We don’t hear as much about that.
Can you decipher the dinging of bad-date warning bells? How about a bunch of red banners flapping wildly before your eyes?
To help you out, here are Ten Toro-genic Flaming Flags from my very own Lousy Love Life archives. I ignored every single one of them. I hope you won’t do the same with your romantic radar.
1)Brought me flowers stolen from my neighbors’ gardens.
2)Said he was “expecting a blonde.”
3)Referred in an email to “tying me up.”
4)Told me lots of interesting stuff about his wife.
5)Walked in carrying a guitar, sat down, closed his eyes and sang horribly to himself.
6)Took me to hear a female rock star and then attempted to put the moves on her.
7)Was always deep in his cups.
8)Was unbearable unless I was deeper in my cups.
9)Frightened me to death with:
D)His Bad Tempered Drunk Driving
10)Invited me, and his steady girlfriend, to the same club on the same night, while lying to both of us about each other. I wondered why his “colleague” was wearing a hoochie mama dress and why he said he was suffering from a “rare and painful neurological disorder” that made it impossible for us to hold hands or even stand close to one another.
I wondered but I never spotted the flag. Or the bull.
