There is a guy that lives above me in the fourplex I live in, he just moved in a few months ago, and has been asking me to go out and do something for quite sometime. I kept giving him excuses, for he just isn't my type. Finally, I ran out of excuses and he put me on the spot and so I said I would go out and do something and I asked what he had in mind and he said dinner.
Well the next night, he comes to my door, dressed nicely, but I was so dreading going out. I asked him if he had anywhere in mind and he said he made dinner reservations!!! Well in this small town, there really aren't restaurants where you have to do that, I had never been to this one. It was very fancy, beyond my interest. Very expensive. Well, we got seated and there was a rose on the table and he had that sent there for me. He said that that place was recommended to him, that he wanted somewhere romantic. I couldn't believe he said that. Then, the menu's were in cursive and due to the dim lighting, I couldn't read the menu well, I couldn't understand half of what was on it so I had him order for me. Well the food looked fancy even, and tasted fancy. It was so gross. I fibbed and told him it was good and picked and stirred and nibbled and told him I was full. Well, he told me I looked nice, and I replied with thanks, I just got out of the shower. I mean c'mon, I didn't think of this as a date.Every time we got in and out of the car he wanted to open and shut my doors and he told me that he was sorry if he wasn't talking much that he was nervous. Well when I got home, I thanked him for dinner and the rose, and he told me that he would like to go out with me again sometime!!!! I told him that I am very busy and that if I could fit it in, sure. I don't know why I just didn't tell him I wasn't interested. I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I don't even know how old he is and he has never asked me, but he looks way to old for me. I don't know.
If I had been on a date with my bf, that would have been so perfect, or even with a guy I had a crush on, but this was a guy I had been avoiding. It was so bad, the best part was coming home. Any ideas how to let him know I don't want to go anywhere but maybe Mcdonalds with him if that? lol. I am such a nice person, but he is not my type and I don't want to hurt him.
