Love the sweater, it’s hot, but your makeup is really over the top. I like you better with a natural look.
Hmph, the food in this place is just ok, dog. But, you know, it’s nothing special. It’s just not doing it for me tonight.
The movie, I don’t know what to say really, because it was just horrendous!
I didn’t get to see American Idol tonight, but just watching it sporadically this season has evidently rubbed off. Even without a tape to listen back, I know I was a bit too judgmental yesterday. And maybe the day before that.
I’m hoping my friends will give me another chance, but when you’re meeting new people, exposing your judgmental side can be a serious mistake.
Going on a first date means putting yourself on the line. You’re looking for acceptance, interest and attraction, and you’re hoping to return the feelings. I seriously doubt you’ll criticize your date directly, but even if you take a run at the non-personal stuff—like the restaurant, the news or the weather—your date is going to secretly wonder how harshly you’re judging him or her.
On a first date, leave the postulating to the pundits.
And I’m sorry if I was channeling my inner Simon yesterday. I’ll try to do better. How about you?
