Who Knew Dating Could Be So Painful

I have yet to find the right guy when I go out on dates. When I date someone, I get very nervous. I understand being nervous on dates, but I get nervous to the point where I do embarrassing things. Sometimes, I try to talk to my date and my voice won't project. Other times, I'll be so shy that I can't even look my date in the eye. I decided that my upcoming date was going to be different. I met a guy that I liked in the library, and we decided that we would go out on Saturday night.

I didn't want him to know where I lived yet, so I decided to meet him at the movies. We both went into the movies, and we went to see an action flick. I was comfortable with the movie up until the part where a couple got naked. I decided to look over at him, and I saw him raising his eyebrows at me as if to say he was turned on. I was a bit turned off by his reaction, but at the same time I laughed. I shouldn't have laughed because I ended up spilling the popcorn all over myself.

When I reached down to grab the popcorn bucket, he reached down towards the bucket as well, and he ended up spilling his drink on me. I was covered in popcorn and soda, and I was so embarrassed. I got up to go to the bathroom, only to slip in the puddle of soda on the floor. Several people in the theater saw me fall, and they got up to see what happened. I ended up running out of the theater in tears with people laughing and pointing at me. Needless to say, this was a painful and embarrassing date.
