Most embarrassing date?

If you have spend any time on the dating scene, you will embarrass yourself on a date. It’s one of those things that happens inevitably, because we are human. We try to put our best foot forward, impress our date, and present a great image because we want them to like us. Sometimes, things go awry and the next thing you know you are trying to play off a slip, fall, or foot-in-mouth comment.

I think embarrassing moments on a date can be a blessing in disguise, though! How you recover and handle the situation can actually impress your date more, endear you to them, and break the tension a little.

What is the most embarrassing moment you have experienced on a date? How did you recover from it?

Have you ever been stuck with someone who embarrassed you? Was it something they did that ruined their chances with you?

Happy Friday!

Naw, not liking the floral dress. Boots and walking shorts (just above the knee). Too many bugs for daisy dukes….

O/T:

While waiting for our food at lunch today, my co-workers and I started talking about waxing…eyebrows first then the convo went into the Brazilian waxing of the va-jay. They said it hurts like hell but it’s worth it and I should try it…but I tear up sometimes when I get my eyebrows waxed so I don’t know if I want a Brazilian. Have any of you ladies tried it?….and if so,is it really worth it?

Lady – Me too…I’m getting antsy and need a vacay. I’ve got four weeks and every year I end up scrambling the second half of the year because I don’t get out of here early and often enough. Not this year! Hopefully, if all goes as planned, I have WDW and the Carribean on my radar…that’ll get rid of some of my days and give me the break I need.

@Kimmie: I almost said a bloody Mary! Best bloody Mary I’ve had in recent memory was at Huey’s on River St. in Savannah. They use the Absolut Peppar vodka, to give it an extra kick. I had two, just to be sure they were really up to par. :)

@Sassy: It doesn’t hurt as bad as you might think, but I’m not gonna lie to you, there are parts that hurt like a mug. It’s totally worth it, though. As a friend of mine said, “it feels so good, I can’t stop touching it!” :oops:

Sassy – Get out of my head! We were just talking about the Brazilian waxing yesterday but neither of us have tried it. I’m pretty good with the eye brow waxing but cannot fathom getting my herrs ripped out of the CT like that. Once I pulled a string thinking it was a piece of thread and turns out it was a gray hair. That ONE TEENIE TINY HAIR being pulled hurt like HEYAL!…plus, not sure how i’d feel with some person with hot wax all up in my cooch garden :shock:

Lady – Speaking of corporate….I’ve got a recruiter that’s been hot on my tail this week…we’ve talked about 3 times and communicated via email. He sent me a request to connect on LinkedIn…. I’m a bit disappointed though because we were suppose to talk by end of week. Anyway, I told him no less than 15 grand and a signing bonus to pack it up. Funny too because this is the same company that I’ve tried over the last year to get noticed. I’ve gotten hits on my resume but nothing that’s hooked. I was blown over when he mentioned the company.

@Sassy ~ I had it done, it does sting, I won’t lie. When finished, you are so clean (except for the landing strip). I thought mine to be quite pretty (lolol, I did). When the hair grows back, it’s baby fine (well mine came back that way). I was a little woozy when I left Spa Sydell…Go for it, then go get a drink.

Kimmie: At Huey’s, they use the Peppar, and Whiskey Willie’s mixer. Season salt on the rim, and served with an olive, pickled okra, celery, and a slice of lemon. I also highly recommend Zing Zang mixer – it’s made by Lea & Perrin’s, and is the shizzle.

Lady, I found you some cute shoes at Zappo’s. :)

@Sassy – try it, just once. I do recommend leaving a “landing strip” though, since that (believe it or don’t) is the area that hurts the worst. Even the hiney didn’t hurt like that.

I can’t remember which stings more, the area away from the lips or the closer you get to the lips. Whew, I thought she’d never finish, but the finished product was worth it (lol).

Spend more time with those who make you smile and less time with those who you feel pressured to impress.

Never tell someone their dreams are impossible. You’ll feel like a fool when they prove you wrong.

No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.

Pursuing happiness by acquiring material things (fancy cars, expensive jewelry, designer clothing) is like jogging to the grocery store on your treadmill: it won’t get you anywhere.

Laugh at stupid jokes. Apologize. Tell someone how much they mean to you. It’s the small moments that make life grand.

Life is way more enjoyable when you stop trying to be cool and simply focus on being yourself.

Start by asking yourself whether each of your relationships drags you down or lifts you up.

Surrounding yourself with positive, loving people is half the battle of living a happy, successful life.

When the ‘want’ gets stronger, the ‘how’ gets easier.

Too often we judge people on too little information. Instead of judging someone for what they do or where they are in their life, figure out why they do what they do and how they got to where they are.

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND MIA! ;)

Bye C!!!

Sorry, Sassy. Didn’t mean to scare you, but yeah, they’re very um…thorough. Good news is, if Mr. Bermuda is craving tossed salad, you’ll be fresh and clean as a whistle. :)

Will do, Lady. :)

@Leggs – further for me. But, as you stated, totally worth it.
