Date from Hell


I thought the "date from hell" happens only in the movies.

Sadly, it wasn't. It was real! I've had such a terrible date that I think I will abstain from that for now until I've fully recovered from a traumatic experience. I think I should share with everyone my definition of a date from hell.

First of all, he wouldn't tell me where the restaurant is and kept on insisting he drives me there. He came in a freaking expensive car and took me to a glitzy hotel for dinner. But... we ended up eating at the coffee house! Lol....

1. He kept on blabbering about his cars. He has many expensive cars and is also thinking of getting a P*****e (sports car, go figure) and asked me if I would like to go choose the colour with him. Ask me if I cared. FAILED!

2. He kept going on and on about his attire which happens to be an expensive brand. He wore the same brand from head to toe. And if that's bad enough, he even told me he just bought a suit from the same brand for RM**** and how good he'll look in that suit. I almost PUKED!

3. He kept on telling me about his maturity, intelligence, attentiveness, wide network and all the shit when I've actually heard that almost for the tenth time inclusive of those through the telephone conversation. FAILED!

4. Then, he dictates what I should wear and what not! Who he thinks he is tell me that?!! And he wanted to take me go shopping for clothes. FAILED!

5. Then, he tell me that I should be his gf! Hellooooo, only 2 dinners and I be your gf?!! Are you dreaming or am I? HELL NO!

Ooohs... and he has been very impatient ie. at the jockeys, waiters and waitresses.

Actually, those were just the highlights of the evening. There's more to it than just some cheesy, almost-vomiting-lines that a 25 year old like me would never believed. Who's so naive to believe that there's love at first sight (is there even one?)? And funny, I was not even moved when he told me he wants to buy me a diamond. Sometimes I think these men need to be taught a lesson. Don't think money can solve all problems (although most of it can) and don't think you can always get what you want. There's no short cut in life.

I'm sure if a relationship is solely based on money, it will not last. Relationship is built on a foundation of love, trust and commitment.

My solution, I conclude that this man is no good for me. I stop picking up his calls and pretended to be sick the next day. I'm happy to know that my nightmare is over. I totally hate people who do not respect me.

Most newly rich behave like that.

ask him go fly kite....he's so rich i bet he has never done this before!

eiling lim said...

Anon: Yes I believe so.

Li Wei: I pretended to be sick. So at least, he's not being embarrassed by me directly.

Wai Lun said...

He must be feeling rather insecure. Most of the time, insecure people like to flaunt their wealth and status just to impress their date. I can imagine it must be a helluva date for you ........

The guy who drive yellow Ferrari?

He chose coffee house may be he had enough of fine dining for the week and missed hawker food but couldn’t eat at cheaper environment?

Cath J said...

OMG!!!!!!!! Serious this happened to you???????? euwww... hate this kind of HUMAN.... ;-p

zéwt said...

one question though.... how the hell did you meet this guy and why the hell you agreed on a date with him at all? :P

Admirer said...

Life is like that, you meet the frogs (me included). One day your Knight in Shinning Armour will come on white horse to sweep your feet of the ground. I am well informed and it comes from the horse mouth! The least I can do is to strike a right note! Plus 88 dinners! Ha-ha!!! :-Q ;-))

eiling lim said...

Wai Lun: That's inferiority complex.

Anon: No. This is another person who drives a Merz.

Anon: I don't think steak is a hawker food.

Cath J: yeah so you can imagine?!!

Zewt: Through a friend and I don't judge a person on first impression so the second dinner (this one) tells it all!

Admirer: I prefer frogs then.

Huai Bin said...

Very dodgy date indeed. I would have been bored out of my mind. Haha! :)

Raymond said...

Is dating at a coffeeshop a wrong first impression for someone with high expectation?

Anonymous said...

Sad to hear your predicaments.
Luckily you are wise enough to ignore him. This kind of guy thinks that his money can buy anything in this world but he just got the wrong target. I wonder how many girls have fall prey to this mercedes driving eagle?I hope one day he will be a victim himself by getting caught in screwing somebody's wife or girlfriend and made to pay out handsomely for his itchy prick...Take care girl..the world is full of vultures...Ray111.

KY said...

hahaha so tragic, u should stick around with cool dudes like myself, horny, & mr. poh

suituapui said...

Such people have very low self-esteem and an inferiority complex! They think they have their money to flaunt so they can twist everyone round their finger... They should go and see a psychaitrist!

Ya...agree with KY...but add me to the list too! Hahahahahaha!

firefly said...

I am surprised you went through the whole night with him. You boleh tahan?? Geli nya! If I were you I will make excuse to leave earlier.Cal cab or ask a friend to drive me home. Anyway your article really funny, can't stop laughing.Hope you are OK.

boo_licious said...

He is probably used to everyone fawning over him becoz of his money. Good riddance to people like him who think that women shld fall at their feet when they mention they have $$$. Well done eiling, for dropping him!

foongpc said...

What?! And you turned down his offer to buy you a diamond? Hahaha!!

Anonymous said...

Was his steak cooked to medium/well done and he took it with chili sauce?

eiling lim said...

Huai Bin: My mind was also not working!

anon: Fully agreed. I failed in judging.

Anon: I should kick somewhere else too!

Raymond: No. I don't mind dating at a normal eating place rather than a coffee house in a 5 star hotel?!!

RAY111: I would have thought that many girls would have fallen prey to this man. Lucky not me!

KY: Yeah I should. Thanks for reminding me!

STP: And you of course!

Firefly: Actually I was just being polite to end the dinner. I didn't want to show that I am rude and actually I'm a very obliging person.

Boo_licious: Yeah! Good riddance! Thanks gal.

Foongpc: I know. I had the same reaction too! Lol...

Anon: No chilli but it tasted really terrible even for a glitzy hotel.

cc said...

Get out of there quick! Sounds like a complete moron who's trying to bribe you into being his gf. You deserve so much better than that!

Happy mid-autumn!

eiling lim said...

CC: Hey, happy Mid-Autumn Festival to you too!

Sarah Joan Mokhtar said...

Well it helps to have a sense of humor about it! Hope he didn't cap off the evening with an 'indecent proposal' . Blegh!

p.calais said...

he's just full of himself!wat a looooser!

eiling lim said...

Sarah: He did but I did a good job by saving myself out of that situation.

Param: Yeah. He's totally no good for me.

dating london said...

don't give up on the thought of love at first sight because it really does happen and you will find someone that's perfect for you. I met my husband on a london dating site for professionals and we first met at a coffee shop. we're in the same line of work and so he understands about the pressures and lifestyle which means no real time to have a social life. Although this guy had the money he obviously needs a woman who will be impressed with that, and you need a man who knows he can afford to treat you but can enjoy the simple things like a romantic walk in a park. you just wrong for each other and that's ok!

TheGunner said...

How did you even get into a date with him in the first place?

eiling lim said...

The Gunner: Don't remind me. It was actually for business.

xaviersuren said...

Well, it is really well said. Some guys thinks that they can bring any women to bed by waving some money at them and (no offence) some women thinks that they can bring any guys to bed just because they are pretty/hot. Love is really made of 4 strong pillars if you ask me. Trust, Tolerance, Understanding and Honesty.
Without this strong foundation, no matter how beautiful you built your relationship, it will collapse one day. Cheers.

Mavericko said...

Another kiasu-kiasi ah beng in town huh!

eiling lim said...

Xaviersuren: I believe so. Money seems to be in question in relationships nowadays. Thanks for sharing.

Mavericko: No class ah beng!

I got here because I was trying to find review for some of the restaurants in KL. But, LOL.

The level of 'salah'-ness that this guy is at is amazing. For instance, he's actually insulting your intelligence and integrity if he thinks that you will be impressed by his wealth and fashion choice. ROFLMAO

Does he speak fluent English at all by the way? He does not seem very well educated... and like what others have commented, quite Ah Beng like.
