Worst. Date. Ever.

I don't ask for much, really I don't...

My flight down to Melbourne was delayed by, roughly, a million years so I was late the first night and only arrived at about 9:30, too late for the proposed early dinner date with my ex-pseudo-girlfriend.

Not to be detered we met up the next day for coffee, even if it was later than planned following my inadvertant tour of Melbourne on the public transport system of confusing maps and drivers who won't speak above an irritating mumble.

Eventually I got there, apologised for being late, made with the standard idle chit chat, and then there was about ten minutes of awkward silence until she asked what was wrong.

I said I didn't know.

She said she didn't either especially since we used to be able to talk for hours.

I had a nasty suspicion that it was because she was hiding something from me since in the past whenever she felt guilty she'd stop talking and act very awkwardly until she spilt.

I asked if she really didn't know?

She said that she didn't.

I said, ok fine. But you can tell me if there's something wrong.

She asked me to drop it.

I dropped it.

Things improved, there was talking and little to no weirdness until her boyfriend showed up.


NEVER again will I date a bisexual.

Oh my god, that's awkward. Sorry to hear about that. Did you go all the way to Melbourne just to see her?

Anyway, have a great day.

I think I should add that a) this was actually an honest to goodness date (and she planned for the boy to be there too if you catch the drift of her thought process) and not me getting ahead of myself and b) I was in melbourne to see relatives, thank god, because if I'd gone that far to just see her and (as it turns out) her boyfriend also I would have been very irratated.

That was a bit of a cowardly move on her part I must say. I mean, why couldn't she just come out and tell you this, preferably BEFORE you guys made plans to meet? Dunno. ARGH, we bisexuals! We are an annoying lot, aren't we?! Fret not, at least now you know that definitely prefer women who are completely gay. See? That's a positive outcome, no?
