Maybe He Biked Away His Brain Calories

Story Submitted by Carol:

Gary was an avid biker, as evidenced by his online profile.  I owned a bike, but was more of a casual rider.  Still, he seemed like a good guy and I responded when he wrote me.  After less than a week, he asked me out.

"Want to go biking?" he asked in his e-mail.

I replied, "Probably not for a first date, but maybe some other time?"

He said that that would be fine, and we agreed to meet in a park.

On the day of our date, I dressed up and went out to meet him.

It was a few minutes after our meet time when I saw him biking towards me from across the park in full biking regalia.

He rode up to me on a racing bike, pointed at me and said, "You're... Annie?"

I pointed to myself and said, "Carol."

He said, "Shit," and biked away.

That was the last I heard of him, although his profile stayed up.  Best I could tell, he had mixed up his dates and was too humiliated to ever even apologize to me.


  1. Drive by dating, so much more convenient than flash dating. You can do it on the way to work.
