At Donna Bella Designs we love running contests, because it’s a great way to reach out to our potential customers in a fun and interactive way! We are especially excited for this contest because we are looking for the best AND worst love stories out there. If you are attached and want to share the cool way you met your significant other, do that…OR, if you have a story about your worst date ever, we want to hear it!
To get things started (and since I can’t enter the contest myself), I am going to share a story about MY worst date ever! Here goes…
I was set up with this guy Cody through a friend I’d worked with in the past. He invited me to go to the July 24 celebration concert at USANA Amphitheater. I thought, cool, this will be fun. However, the first red flag I should’ve noticed was that he wanted me to drive. “You fly and I’ll buy,” were his words. So I went to his house and he let me in, and immediately I could tell he’d been drinking. I don’t drink, so I passed when he offered me a beer — perhaps forgetting I had to drive to the concert!
So we left for USANA and he wasn’t terribly belligerent on the way there, but as soon as we got there he wanted to go to the bar area and drink some more. I couldn’t stop him, so I sat there and watched him get even more drunk, to the point where he was slurring and stumbling and everything.
The concert started, and on our way to the general seating, he lit up a cigarette, ignoring all the “No Smoking” signs posted prominently everywhere. He was soon stopped by a security guy, who told him to put out the cigarette. Cody stared at the guy as he took at least three more long drags, then dropped it on the ground and stepped on it. The security guy told him to pick it up, and Cody swore at the guy under his breath (though loud enough for him to hear), then begrudgingly picked up the cigarette butt and threw it in the garbage.
We finally went to sit down, and despite everything things were going okay for a while…until he wanted to get up and dance. I didn’t know “dancing” to him meant grinding against me like we were in a club! Families were sitting everywhere, and one guy soon told us to stop. Cody just turned around and swore at him, and kept on acting a fool. I got sick of it and told him I wanted to sit down, and for a while I just had to deal with him loudly making fun of every artist that came on the stage.
Once the concert was over, I drove him home and thought that would be that, but he started drunkenly begging me to come inside and “watch a movie” with him. No way! As soon as I could pry his hands off of me I was out of there!
Now I’m not sure my story would be worthy of a prize in the contest, but it was certainly a terrible date! I also think it’s a good example of what we are looking for. LOVE STORY entries will be judged based on how much our hearts go aflutter…and WORST DATE entries will be judged based on how cringeworthy they are!
