Hang Up the Phone
On a recent first date, the girl I was with must have had her cell phone glued to her ear. From the time I picked her up, she was either on the phone, texting, or checking her e-mail. I spent more time looking at the ceiling. What I did next should qualify me for some kind of award. I excused myself from the table and walked out of the restaurant and into my car. I drove home and left her there by herself. Ah, the joys of messing with someone like that.

Are You a Perpetual Prowler?
Although online dating can open up a world of options for you, it can also open up a world of frustrations. When there's an endless supply of potential connections, it's hard to be satisfied with just one. Even though you've had a few dates with a potentially great girl, you might find yourself continuing to looking online to see if there's someone better out there.
Taken, But Available
Not every couple has a cute (or even socially acceptable) answer to the oft-asked question: "How did you two meet?" That's because for a surprisingly high number of couples, the answer is: "Oh, I stole him/her away from someone else."
