I have to put myself on blast. It’s not something I am proud of nor do I condone this kind of bad dating behavior. Recently, while I was having dinner with a guy, I got caught gawking another guy. I know, I know, it doesn’t get much tackier than that! I have no real excuse for it, really. I mean, I did have some wine and I was not enjoying the conversation at that point. Even still, it didn’t give me a right to stare at the fine (FINE) man walking by.
To make matters worse, I locked eyes with said good looking man and he gestured something to me. Just when I tried to figure out what he was saying, I notice my date looking at me as if I had sprouted 5 heads. Oy. I tried unsuccessfully to play it off and that just irritated him more. Things went downhill from there, including a icy glare and awkward silence.
Needless to say, I don’t think I will hear from him again. He was justifiably annoyed. Heaven knows what I would have said or done had he been the one checking out some woman so blatantly. I feel awful, truly.
Do you ever have a problem with wandering eyes? When you are out with someone, do you ever sort of check out of the conversation and somehow start looking around at other people? Why do you think it happens?
What would you do if you caught your date or your significant other looking at someone else in front of you?
P.S. Do you think I should let sleeping dogs lie or would it be nice if I at least called to apologize?
