The Kimono Massacre of 1985

Story Sent in by Stefanie:

David saw a picture of me on my profile wearing a kimono for a costume party and asked me if I'd wear it to our first date. I told him, "We'll see." I thought he was kidding, but when we met at last, he was seriously angry.

"Where the hell is your kimono?! You promised to wear it!"

I had never promised to do any such thing. Yes, I had said, "we'll see," but I figured he'd know I didn't actually mean to wear it, or at least take what I said with a sense of humor. But not David.

He said, "If you're not wearing it, then I don't see a reason to continue with the date. Are you sure you don't have it in your car or something? I'll wait here if you go change into it."

My turn to become angry. "No! I don't have the stupid kimono!"

He gave me the finger and said, "This is for the kimono! Never forget!" and he stormed away from me.

I blocked him from contacting me on the site as soon as I made it home. And I made the kimono picture my profile photo.

  1. That's a bit insensitive of you. Mayhaps a kimono killed his family.

  2. Yeah OP, that's showing him!

    @ JMG - Kimonos are the number one killer in Japanese homes you know. They beat out futons, rice paper screens and wavy cats by a wide margin.

  11. @Fizziks - At long last, my sad and lonely dateless Friday and Saturday nights spent perusing the archives memorizing every little detail of the old posts just in case that information might be valuable some day has paid off!

  12. Steve, who to say you are marrying a female you could be marrying a male for all you know.

  13. This legit happened to me on a date too. I was so pissed. It actually happened on every date I had with an ex boyfriend. He'd demand I wear stuff he saw in pictures or suggest clothes "Do you have red sandals? Do you own any brown jeans? Wear those!" Glad to be out of that relationshit
