Weird Date Wednesday

UnknownEvery woman is looking for the perfect package: Smart, funny, and sensitive (but not in that weak and sad way).  I found a guy who seemed to fit all three of those requirements.  We went on a few dates...lot's of movie dates, and numerous sleep overs. Everything was going well except for ONE thing.. he WOULD NOT have sex with me.

We would stay up all night talking about life, global warming, how dolphins communicate, but when it would come time for us to do the deed he'd say, "good night!" in a sprightly manner and roll over and go to bed. I'd stay up all night ITCHING and wanting to die.

Wait, now that i think of it... maybe I had bed bugs.  

Anywho,  I liked him and I didn't want to call it quits, but I HAD to have sex, so I decided it was time to go on one more date with him, get him drunk, and try to MAKE him have sex with me. 

I picked this sexy little wine bar in the west village called Corsino Cantina. When i met him there, in my Sunday best of course,  I realized he had brought a newspaper with him under his arm which I thought was a little weird but in NY you have to carry your life with you, and well, men don't wear purses.  And let's face it, I would rather him have a newspaper than carry a purse.  

We sit down, and order a bottle of wine, it's on.  As soon as we get the wine, 5 minutes after we get there I take a few sips, and I'm feeling a little feisty... so I just say it,

'You know, we've been dating a few weeks and I really am having so much fun with you, but I HAVE to have sex."

No response.

"Do you not find me attractive? Are you missing a testicle? What's happening??"

He's not offended, he's not bothered or phased by this.  He just picks up the newspaper which has been resting on the bar and says,

"You know what, I would rather read a stimulating article and stimulate my mind than have sex with you. I just think sex is a waste of time.  People spend all this time laying around sleeping with each other and they could be learning, reading, talking and getting to know each other"

It was the first time in my life where my mind was SCREAMING...

"Lindsey leave... get out, get up and leave RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!"

But we just ordered wine, and I was thirsty. I stuck it out, and shortly after, we changed the subject... I'm not sure what we talked about because i couldn't stop thinking about the fact that ANYONE would rather READ than have sex.  I have never met a book that made me orgasm.  Well, that's not ENTIRELY true.  

If you have a dating horror story who would like to see posted, please email me @ lindsey@bigcitysiren.com
