Relationships-Online Dating BuffetI had an online fish on the line for a couple of weeks but the short of it is, while that the fella wrote nice e-mails, and had a nice voice on the telephone, the line broke when he took me to a buffet for our first date. This is not the best place for steaming a plate full of romantic interest when the ambience is smothered with gravy, grits, and a passel of folks who are just concerned about how much they can pack into their gizzards for $9.99. I even broke down and told him I was a senior citizen so that he could get a discount on the tab. Who makes up this stuff?

I just couldn't warm up to him over my plastic glass of water and trying to figure out what line to get in with regard to the one-hundred fifty-nine food choices. What kind of a guy takes a gal to the buffet? I don't even eat at the buffet at Mexico travel destinations. It’s fine if you are ordering an omelet for breakfast but the rest of the meal choices are just that, choices. There are so many choices and I am a decision maker. So for $7.99 I chose the salad, seafood and seven glasses of water. Small talk after packing in as much as he could had my eyeballs swimming and looking for the nearest toilet. I struggle with going to the bathroom with strange men sitting across the table from me.
