Sometimes, when you meet a dude, he turns out to be very different than what you thought he would be. My esteemed colleague Amanda has highlighted this phenomenon beautifully in her Dating Hijinks column — there are guys who stand you up, guys with odd fetishes, and of course, guys who turn out to be sex offenders.
And such is the case in this Funny or Die video, in which an unsuspecting girl gets a call from a guy she met at a BBQ who she thought was going to be “nice.” But rather than ask her out on a nice, normal date, he suggests that they meet at 7:30 a.m., visit a dog cemetery and then collect beatles to smash up.
“Everything that you just suggested sounds like the worst ever,” she accurately replies.
I can’t say that I’ve ever been asked on such a horrific date, but I can safely say that I’ve met gentlemen who were not who I initially believed they were. In my experience, it usually has more to do with flakiness and general L.A. annoyingness, like revealing halfway into the date that they’re not really a writer as indicated at the bar when you met but that they “want to be” and “have a screenplay” that they are “just about done with,” or even better, that they want you to ghostwrite a book about their life because “they have some stories to tell.”
Yeah. Anyway, without further ado:
