I effing hate all of you

"Just give him a chance!"

"Go! You might meet someone else there!"

"You should go. You'll have fun."

These are just some of the things I heard when I blogged about The Lawyer asking me to his law firm's prom. At that point, we had only been out once (and talked on the phone a few times).

But all of my readers (and friends who don't read the blog) said I should give him another chance.

So I did. On Wednesday. After two hours (and no dinner!), I packed it up for the nite and knew once and for all that I did not want to go out with him again.

Except... now I have to because he had already asked me to this thing. UGH. (Side note: who asks someone they've only been out with once to a black tie affair? Dorks, that's who.)

I am DREADING this black tie event next Saturday. As in, I would rather do the following things in lieu of going to this event:
  • staple my eyelids to the carpet

  • get a UTI or yeast infection

  • wear pegged jeans on a date with an incredibly hot guy

  • have extra fat injected into my ass and thighs

I have a feeling this is going to be a looooooong week. I already can't wait for Saturday to be over.

SERIOUSLY, PEEPS... is it too late to cancel? And if it's not, what should I say?

JESUS H.....girl..a "UTI or Yeast infection. For the love of God DON'T GO!! \You know I can come up w/ a million excuses (go figure), but I think you already prefaced this date w/ "yes, i can go, unless the "anonymous bride" needs me." Well, I'm thinking "anonymous" needs you! hmm...aren't we putting place cards together or perhaps just having a last girls' sleepover next Saturday? I think we are!

Carrie - LOL. I know. I was thinking of using the bride, but at this point it would need to be an emergency.

My idea? Say that there was something wrong when we went to the dress shop this weekend, and that we have to drive to Cincinnati (where there are a zillion bridal stores) on Saturday to pick up a replacement.

Not sure placecards or a sleepover would fly... but an emergency trip might work, no?

Don't go... and you don't need an excuse. You never know - he might realize it was a bad idea, as well! Don't waste your time!

Don't go. If you're already hating it this much, you'll be miserable at the event and in turn make him miserable. It was unfair of him to ask you to go until you went on at LEAST two dates.

Um... but is this why you never called me back last night to let me know if you were coming over? Shade-ville.

can I go on record now and say I was one of the few who commented on the previous post saying dont go?

Just be honest with this guy and tell him you don't think it's a good idea of you go. Tell him this is all to much right off the bat and you're just not comfortable with it.

Call him/email him today. He's a handsome looking guy - I'm sure he'll have no problem finding a new date by then! And you'll feel much better you did!

Honesty is REALLY the best policy. It will be like taking off a band-aid. It makes you nervous at first (on my hairy arms is does)...but as soon as it comes off there is a sense of relief.

And if you ever run into him again you won't feel like a complete bonehead!

Love - MOLLY

BUT, what if you go and you meet the man of your dreams at the event? Would you then owe The Lawyer the finder's fee? A quagmire, for certain.

UPDATE: I am pretty sure I am not going. Will spare you the details of how this all transpired, but I basically used a little white lie (named Molly AKA Bride-to-Be) to get out of it.

Sorry to disappoint if you thought I should go... I just couldn't bring myself to do it!

P.S. Why does everyone comment as ANONYMOUS? At least use an alias (like I do!) so I can respond directly to you in my comments. :)

Ugh I have had a ton of these situations lately ABM, and all I can tell you is this: While I completely agree that honesty is the best policy, sometimes people deserve to have their feeling spared. So if he hasn't done anything that's assured him a place in the D!ickhead hall of fame, then I agree, a little white lie never hurts. I guess you just have to put yourself in his loafers and see if you think the truth would be of any benefit to him. Is he gonna learn from constructive criticism...if he doesn't strike you as the type...then LIE girl, LIE! :) As long as you can rest your pretty blonde locks on your pillow at night secure with what you've done throughout the day, then all is well!
