I decided to put myself back out there and see what the dating scene was like after all these years. I agreed to go on a blind date with a handsome cool brown skin gentleman, with a low cut Caesar and goatee. Ladies he was very attractive and in great physical shape. We spoke on the phone a few times and seemed to really hit it off. From the pictures he sent me, skiing, surfing and riding his motorcycle, I could tell that he was adventurous and that appealed to me.
We decided the first date would be dinner and a movie after work in an area I was a tad bit unfamiliar with. I took a wrong turn somewhere and got lost on my way to the restaurant. I called him for directions and pulled over at a gas station as he had instructed. It was still bright out so I wasn’t scared. Plus, I knew how to find the expressway if I wanted to head home. He arrived at the gas station about 15 minutes later, making that our first encounter. Not really what I was going for but I was the one who had gotten lost. I was pleased that he did the gentleman like thing by coming to get me as oppose to giving me more directions over the phone though.
He opened my car door, we hugged and said hello to each other. I thought that I would get back into my car and immediately follow him to the restaurant but instead he began to make small talk. I figured he was nervous. I’ll admit I certainly was. I tried really hard not to stare and smile but he was very attractive. After a few minutes I sat back into my car and just when he was about to close my door he said, “AWalk you are even more attractive in person. You look beautiful. I love your outfit and the way put yourself together, you look terrific!” Ladies, my heart was like warm butter over some hot corn on the cobb. LOL. I smiled and said, “thank you” as if I wasn’t fazed a bit. I reached to start my engine but noticed he still had not closed my door. That’s when he hit me with it. This fine tall handsome man looked me dead in the eye and said “You have on a nice pair of heels there. You mind slipping your feet out so I can take a look at your toes?” WHAT?!?!?!? LMBO! I had started to chuckle then it grew into a full blown laughter.
We had joked on the phone about women that wore high heeled pointy toe shoes with jacked up hammer toes before. I was really hoping that this was a joke gone too far but would quickly end. NOPE. He crouched down and slipped off my shoe so fast and so smoothly, it caught me completely off guard. I was startled and yet excited at the same time at his skills. It made my mind wonder for a minute. LOL. Don’t judge me.
Now, I have been told that I have pretty feet many times before. And it’s true. I scrub my feet daily in the shower and I keep them well-manicured. I was not ashamed to show them off but this was our first date and we were at a gas station on the way to dinner. That’s when he did the unthinkable ladies; he held my shoe to his face and inhaled deeeeeeep. He looked at me and said, “Bet you thought I was joking about having a foot fetish! Nah girl, you have cute feet too. The kissable type!”
Stick a fork in me, I’m done. I was SHOCKED. I thought to myself “never before and never again”. I asked for my shoe back with a disgusted smile on my face.
Once we began our journey to the restaurant, I pulled a quick right when he made a left and I was on the expressway home; never to be heard from again. He called and left a message apologizing and asking for another date but flashes of him wearing my shoes and licking my toes kept me from returning his calls. I’m just not into all of that.
LOL needless to say it was an interesting encounter and way too funny. I’ll let you guys know how the next date goes. #takemyfoolishadvice the purpose of the first date is to get a second one. Don’t let too much of yourself out there at once, it might be too much for the other person to handle. Share your craziest dating stories below.
