I met a dude from this site several months back.
I had a couple of aussie friends visiting so we went into Soho for some beers. After about 7 I got the text asking if we could meet that night, I said where I was and that we could meet in about an hour.
One of the aussies had a friend with her, this guy that went outside for a quick joint. I thought "hmmm... not a good idea to partake, Im drunk, and I dont need it". So I go outside with him and smoke a bit anyway - not very smart.
So then I was left alone at my friends bar when the aussies left, I sat by myself on this stool by the counter and started feeling REALLY paranoid, I kept just looking left and right then straight ahead for a few seconds and so forth thinking "wtf, you bloody idiot, now you are drunk AND stoned and meeting a guy from the internet in who knows how many seconds/minutes"
So X turns up, I am too out of it to even get off the stool to greet him and stuff... I made it super awkward by being the WORST date ever... basicly I was making too much small talk, asking basic questions, then forgetting the answers and asking the questions again. That went on for about 40 minutes before he "got tired all of a sudden and had to go home" (I dont bame him at all!)
I never fessed up about being stoned, just drunk, and I knew he wouldnt wanna meet again, so I made it easy for him when he said "right well I will speak to ya tomorrow". I go "well its up to you man, you can call or you dont have to, its all good seriously", but he was too polite and said he would anyway - he never did though, haha!! So I just messaged him here to say somehting along the lines of "yeah dude sorry, I dont think either of us were in our prime that night - all good
The lesson is - be completely sobre when you have a little date kinda thing - do NOT smoke a joint... jesus fucking christ! hahaha!
