Comic Strip - Date by ARCHVERMIN Comic Strip - Date by ARCHVERMIN
On the subject of bizarre first dates - I once got asked by a chick to join her for her Sunday mass and then spend the rest of the day together.

I thought it'll just be like a regular Christian mass or something and didn't think more of it.

So I met her on Sunday morning, and she took me to large building, descended 2 flights of stairs, and into a giant televangelist auditorium - complete with overhead screens, professional cameras and a rock band on the side of the stage. In the middle of the stage was a young dude in a smart shirt proclaiming the wonders of God through his microphone.

He was very animated, asking direct questions to members of the audience, and the people responded with equal enthusiasm. I don't even remember what he talked about, but there were a lot of (repeated) invitations for me to join their regular gatherings, help them teach immigrants how to speak English, and that I should purchase their CDs (which contains all their best songs, mine to own for $19.95).

I think that was one of the longest 2-hours I've ever spent in my life.

She asked me afterwards what I thought of it. I remember mumbling something non-specific and made excuse to leave after lunch.

Try going on a date, waiting an hour at a train station and finding out the girl looks nothing like her photographs, nor does it turn out that the location that we intended to go to FOR the date - at her suggestion - actually exists.

Meeting up with a girl on a date and the first word out of her lips is "Let me explain," is always a bad sign. :I

well damn that sounds bad

how did you leave in the end?

To be fair, I should have checked up on the location before even setting out. But google maps gave me too much confidence, I tell you!

She explained why she frauded photos and why she just "wanted me out here" to see how I acted with her. Ironically, it was because SHE was apparently dealing with a bunch of online weirdos, and wanted to keep her exact personage a secret, and date in a "neutral" area.

Despite it feeling kindof kidnapper-ish, I wasn't as brave as you and gritted down for the whole date.
Surprisingly, it didn't turn out monstrous. But that was certainly the last she heard of me. :0 Starting something off with elaborate lies isn't the best way to start something.

That's hardly my worst dating experience, but yeah, I suppose you're right. XD We'll look on the bright side, lol.

As Christian.... My humble apologies. Evangelism dating is never a great idea >.<

lol I went to a catholic school myself, that's why I was even more bewildered by it. I was seriously hoping I had gone a boring sermon with rows of old ladies instead.
