This has happened to me enough where it's starting to become a "thing." The date is going great: We're enjoying our meal, el vino is flowing and we're--for lack of a better word--vibing. (I know that sounds hippy-ish, but you know what I mean.) Then, I say that one thing that blows their hair back. Maybe I'll quote something from Arrested Development. Maybe I'll make a particularly funny Jurassic Park joke. After he drops his fork on his plate and holds both of his sides in laughter, he'll say, "Just marry me, now!" Then, we'll laugh. I'll blush. We'll pick up the conversation from where we left off doing our best to be unselfconscious about what just happened. It's awesome.
But, then by our third date...nothing. Somehow between our first date and our third date, I guess I became unmarriable? Where was the guy who got such a kick out of me that he considered--even just for a second--becoming legally bound to me? Where'd he go?
Has anyone out there actually married a guy who has told them that they should get married on their first date? Or, if you hear that phrase out of a guy's mouth, should you know that you'll be doomed, like if you tattoo the name of your significant other on your body you'll break up soon? Has this happened to anyone else or am I alone in this? I don't know. I give up.
