Dating Disasters

Well, I never had the priviledge to do much dating. I met my husband a month after my 16th birthday and we have been together ever since...But I have been on some so-called dates. Once I went on a date with a guy named David Prince. I was a sophmore in high school and it was our Homecoming dance. It was my first year, in a new school and he was one of several guys who asked me out. He seemed like a great pick. He was very good looking, dressed nice, and seemed very charming. We talked a few times on the phone. He even came over my house and we talked. Finally we went to homecoming. I was so angry, because I did not want to wear a dress. My mom made me. She made me wear this hoop floor length strapless gown, with a tiara, and these semi-high healed glass slippers. When David arrived, she wanted me to make this grand entrance, down the stairs, so I thought I would give myself a practice run. I waltzed down the stair, ended up tripping and falling and breaking the freaking heal off my shoe. My cousin Kevin had to nail the heal back on (that was a sign). My hair had come down, so my sister had to pin it back up. David arrived 45 minutes late and we headed to the dance with our other friends. He kept telling me over and over how pretty I looked, and I was blushing from ear to ear. When we got to the dance, he didn't want to do anything, we didn't talk, all he did was stare at me. Making me soooo uncomfortable. My god-brother Nic ended up babysitting me and David the whole night...He said that David had STALKER tendencies...whatever that meant. Finally,David asked me to dance. I looked at him, and he started to look a little funny...He looked as if he was melting...turns out David had on foundation and eyeliner....HE WORE MAKEUP! When I asked him about, he acted as if it were the most natural thing on earth. He said it brought out his good qualities... I was so unnerved by this. We ended up leaving with our other friends and going to the movies. We went to see Halloween 4 Michael Meyers return. When we were in the movies, I tried to put the makeup thing behind me. David had his arms around me... a scary part of the movie came on...he screamed, i jumped and kicked my glass slipper to the front of the movies, hitting some man in the back of the head, he laid his face on my chest, foundation was everywhere...the man who I hit with my shoe, stood up and starting cursing about being hit with the shoe...I was so embarrased that I never claimed my shoe. I just left the movie theater with one shoe on, we ended up going to White Castle ...and then we went home. Needless to say, David and I broke up about 3 weeks after this...he was not my type......lol

OMG OMG OMG!!! I'm dying laughing over the make up thing and just when I thought it couldn't get weirder than David wearing make up. There you go hitting a guy with your show! Bwahahahahahaha... I'm sorry honey, but that tops mine easily! (I'm not sure if that's a good thing!)
