5. The Best Worst Date Stories: The Mother of All Catfish
Brian was not looking for love or a partner when this catfish of all catfishes happened to cross his path. He used to hang out every Saturday and Sunday with his friends before both of his best friends bid their goodbyes to bachelorhood.
This meant he was the only one who could not ‘relate when they gave reasons for not being able to show up for their boy time.
The Emotional Hang-up
This happens much more often than we might think. Do you know how suddenly all of your friends are happily married and you are not? Then, you start feeling like your friends have been taken away from you by the cruel reality of life.
And so he was complaining, a lot, oh a whole lot. ‘What happens to their bros over females mantra? And each time he gets a firm answer, ‘Wives happen.' Wives aren't any regular females, they are wives, and with that, he would zip it up.
After a few months of endless complaints, his friends decide to find a solution. They created online dating profiles for him on all the hot dating sites. He attended a couple of dates, but none was as exciting as he had expected, except for the last one.
His boys set him up. They pick this random profile that has tasteful photos of a beautiful moderately curvy and toned lady; she looks of Hispanic descent.
They arrange a meet up over lunch hour, and Brian was very excited. For the first time, he even put in some effort to visit a barber before a date; of course, the first impression is essential on first dates.
He gets to the restaurant 20 minutes before his date and walks straight to their reserved table, patiently waiting for his queen.
The Catfish Moment
A few minutes later, he sees a short chubby girl with a t-shirt, jeans, a hoodie that was all the way opened in such a way that he could read the quote at the front of her t-shirt.
She strutted her way towards the main table, and Brian secretly wished that he could disappear from the face of the earth, but it was a little too late.
They sat there, avoiding eye contact altogether and almost having zero conversation. His most awkward first date ever!
Why the Mix-Up?
