Rolling the Dice
Tara thinks dating is a crap shoot (and this week the odds of a good date were against her).
Let's face it -- dating is a crapshoot! I'm sure all single women will agree that on the topic of dating, you just never know what you're going to get. But I'm always willing to roll the dice and take my chances and here's a quick pre-date checklist:
Mutual attraction: check
Compatibility (at least "on paper"): check
Common interests: check
So with the checklist items crossed off, it has to be a fantastic and wonderful date, right? WRONG! But why? Let's take a look at the three dates from tonight's episode, shall we?
I love both of these people, and I was so excited to see them finally go on a date; and it was so beautiful with a perfect location and wonderful people. Note to Glenn: if you want more than a high five after a date, you may want to show your abs…I'm just throwing out a suggestion, that's all.
Matt and Sexy Canadian
Could there be a better-looking couple? Seriously, that was ridiculous! To me, this date seemed like it was straight out of a movie.
Even though his date could've made most men commit to anything, Matt stood strong and didn't hurt the sexy Canadian by lying to her. He was honest and you can never fault him for that.
Ah yes, this is the date that (in a million years) I never would've expected to turn out the way it did. I understand that everyone has an "off day," but this was out of control. On paper, my date was perfect: great personality, good looking, and knows a bunch of my friends. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING!
Seriously, a note to guys out there: if you don't like your date's outfit, let it go and say she still looks great. Be honest about other things, but honesty is not the best policy when talking about your date's dress, especially on the first date. Next, never talk about any sort (no exceptions) of bodily fluids on any date. Come on, that should be Dating 101! I am not even touching D.T.F. I already made it clear that the Jersey Shore clothing style is repulsive, let's not start talking like them!
