Flopcorn

Story Sent in by Ellenore:

Ian had the first date idea to play hide and go seek in a cornfield. We drove there separate and parked and he said he'd hide first. When I finished counting I went to look for him.

After a long time I couldn't find him and told him I gave up. Then I said it louder. Then I shouted it.

He didn't answer. I tried to return to my car but I was lost in the cornfield. I called out for Ian and for anyone who could hear. No one answered but the wind.

After a really long time I found my way to a street and I was able to trace my way back to where we had parked.

Ian's car was gone. I drove off without him and never saw him again.

  3. He had to meet some friends at another corn field. Consider yourself lucky OP.

    Also, why would any girl think this was a "good" or "safe" idea for a first date? A remote field surrounded by corn where no one can see you. Not to mention all the Children of the Corn movies. I'm glad OP didn't get murdered, but I'm suprised OP didn't get murdered.

  5. This sounds like a high school prank where all this happens and then when she gets to school everyone knows she ran around a cornfield for hours. Meanwhile mr. cool is laughing his head off at his "genius".

    1. That was my thought. Either that, or he didn't like her and used the field as a way of ditching her.

  7. "I try to be creative with my date ideas, and when I suggested playing hide and go seek Ellenore seemed really into it! She lived in the next town over so we decided to meet at a corn field in the middle.

    I guess Ellenore was TOO into hide and seek; as she was counting I hid behind her car, but as soon as she got to one hundred she ran off into the corn field. I waited a couple minutes, expecting her to come bounding out, but she never returned. After ten more minutes I stood up on my car and shouted as loud as I could. There was no way she couldn't hear me.

    I waited more than half an hour for her. Eventually I got the clue that she wanted to end the date but didn't want a confrontation. She was probably just behind the first row of corn waiting for me to leave so she could get to her car. So I did the gentlemanly thing and left. She never contacted me again, and I had the sense enough to let her go."

  8. Maybe on date 2 he was going to take you to an abandoned factory or camping deep in the woods... OP is seriously lucky she wasn't hurt.

  10. In absolutely no way am I victim-blaming rape victims... but if some guy I didn't know suggested this as a first, second or third date I'd be weary of my vulnerability. Even if I "drove my own car."

    1. Did you mean wary? "Weary of your vulnerability" sounds like a reason someone started doing competitive bodybuilding.

    2. lol I did mean wary. Thanks for correcting me. Oops I'm embarrassed now >.<

      But forreal though! That date sounds so unsafe!

  11. Hey Mistah Jay, when are we going to stop seeing doubles of our comments? I love you and this site dearly, but that is mildly annoying.

    1. It happens when a commenter accidentally hits the publish button twice. That's why it doesn't happen to everyone. Only those who are so comment-exuberant that they just can't help it. I go through and delete duplicates as I see them, but with all of the debauchery at the ABcotD mansion, I'm sure you'll understand if it takes me a day or two. Now quit yer sass.

  12. I really don't know why she even went...A corn field as a first date? It could have ended really bad :S. Luckily he took off on her because she was not to his liking clearly but if she had been, he could have tried to rape her! Omg:S
