Face it -- I'm NEVER going to Prime Grill

Narcissus promised to take me there and never did; he never took me anywhere. G.I. Josh refused to go there. Hude said we'd go there on our second date -- one of many broken promises. And HVAC just canceled on me, again, at the last minute -- again.

We were supposed to go to Prime Grill two days ago. He called in the morning to reschedule for tonight because he had to work. I canceled a strategy meeting for an advocacy project I've been trying to get off the ground.

I didn't hear from him all day, so I finally wrote to him via the website where we met:

Subject: are we on for tonight?
Message: I need to know when you're picking me up.

He wrote back:

i got to work tonight again
i have shutdown in a nut house

It's already 4:00!

When were you planning on telling me? I canceled other plans to go out with you tonight, you know, and now it's too late for me to reschedule. That's very inconsiderate of you.

He hasn't responded. I hate sounding like a nag; starting out a relationship like this can't be a good sign. I think I should probably just give up on him already. It's probably not shayach -- how can I date a guy who never goes to a museum? -- and he clearly doesn't have very good manners.

  1. You should cut your losses. Sounds like you have been initiating all the contact with him, and that he's been pretty casual about it all. I agree he is rude and quite immature. Next!!!

    As to Prime Grill, girlfriend, you don't need a man to take you. Pick a friend and an occasion and go! (My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks but that is not a hint.) I would add that while the service is excellent P.G. is waaay overpriced. And it is filled with lots of boring (to you) Wall Street types.

  2. I know it's overpriced -- that's part of the allure of going on a date there ;) I certainly can find better and more reasonably priced food. It's what PG represents that I long for. However -- I think you're right that things with HVAC are going nowhere fast. Since he read but hasn't responded to my last note, I think you can stick a fork in this liaison -- it's done.

  3. Egh. His loss. If it's any consolation, my PG plans were junked unceremoniously as well. I realize it's not. Sorry.
