Yes and Nose

Story Sent in by Joseph:

All of Darlene's profile photos were of her dead-on - facing the camera directly. When I met her for dinner I saw why: she had a really long nose. She was really nice and all but her nose was too long for me to really think of her as anything other than just some long-nosed girl.

Once I discovered that about her I was less than enthused about continuing with the date and she picked up on it fast. She said, "Is this a nose thing? Most guys have a problem with it. You want me to get a nose job, too?"

I said, "No. If you like your nose then you should keep it as it is. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you feel bad."

She said, "Oh! No problem! I'll just do this." And then she held her hand up in front of her long nose. "Now you can't see it anymore so it can't offend you. We can go about our business."

She held up her hand in front of her long nose for the rest of our "business" (dinner). She didn't have to do that but it was her choice. She did everything with one hand because her other hand stayed in front of her nose the whole time. She didn't even switch hands! Anyway, that was my date with the long-nosed girl.

    Just reading this and it screams of douche bag. Darlene probably got that too. Well done Darlene!

  2. The date proceeded longer in length then Darlene's nose then it should have.Joseph was a bit shallow and Darlene was nosehurt.It's ok to excuse yourself and end the date if it is not going well.Which is what Darlene should of done.Op should of shown some tact if Darlene was able to pick up on his disdain.Roxanne and Cyrano De Bergerac they are not.Talk to the hand because the nose don't understand!

  3. There's an ass for every seat. Personally, I think a long prominent nose on a chick is hot. Paget Brewster is a good example... YUM!

  4. Wow, so I guess size really does matter. Good thing she didn't get into your pants before you dumped her. She might have been the one doing the dumping.

    PSA: People, please use accurate and current photos of yourself on dating sites.

  5. OP, you kind of sound like an ass. May you meet the woman you deserve. She's probably on this site somewhere, but she doesn't know it.

  6. Ouch OP, What kind of faces were you making at her to give away that you didn't like her nose. You really couldn't look past that to give her a chance? You don't think that some other women you date don't have faults of their own? Instead you give her some mental complex over her nose. You did her a favor in the end, she's too good for you.

  7. You're the kind of dude who would marry a good-looking psychopath with no cooking skills or willingness to work over a plain Jane who makes you laugh, did a stint at the Cordon Bleu, and has a thriving career as owner of a chain of liquor stores, aren't you. Idiot.

    1. I'd marry that Plain Jane. My husband would support this decision.

  8. I think I'll be the only one who is semi on OP's side. A person could have the perfect personality but if you aren't physically attracted to them, for some reason, why continue going out with them? I could meet a guy who was perfect for me but if he had a unibrow that could house it's own ecology and that was a turn-off for me, I wouldn't continue to date him.

    1. So if it comes down to a choice over less than stellar looks/awesome personality over looks like a model/personality of a rabid badger, your choice would be to try to make it work with the badger rather than spending enough time with awesome personality to eventually not see the (easily fixable) unibrow? Cool. More decent dudes that make me laugh for me.

    2. Not necessarily. My hubby isn't someone I would normally be physically attracted to but I knew him before we started dating and got to know him. Maybe he is a bit shallow but I wouldn't want to be with someone who had for force themselves to look past my physical imperfections.

    3. It is also possible to have the sense that there will be no second date because of a lack of spark and not be so disdainful that your date realizes that you think the date is repulsive. That's called being polite and being an adult.

  10. When I first met my fiance I wasn't really attracted to him,I guess he was having an off day.But the second time I saw him I thought he looked much better(he had shaven and got a hair cut).I don't know why he didn't do this for our first meet but I'm glad I gave him a chance and thought he was a nice guy.Now I think he's one of the most attractive men I have ever seen.(ok,I gave him a make over).Sometimes physical attraction isn't always instant.It could also be the other way around,the person could be hot but ugly on the inside.

    1. Lol. There's a huge difference between a wash and a shave and a long schnoz. You yourself only found your date attractive after you "made him over". It's okay to admit you think certain people are ugly.

  11. Team Darlene. Joseph was willing to dismiss what was probably a perfectly nice lady over something she was born with

    1. Well yeah, that's how men and women are with each other. If they don't feel attraction for each other, they don't pursue it.
