Today, a guy I had been casually seeing asked me to dinner. Thinking he could be wanting to make things serious, I got all dressed up. Turns out he got a girlfriend and just wanted to tell me in person to avoid things being awkward. We then waited in silence for our meal. FML
moneybenny tells us more :
And to anyone saying I could have left... He picked me up in his car and drove me to the place. The car ride home was equally fun.

68 would it be:

'..."casually seeing" each other.'?

I'm terrible at English but as far as I tell only direct quotes go in the quotation marks? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Oh yay down votes for learning!

Upvotes/down votes don't matter but love the negativity towards someone trying to become better at something.

Besides you, 90, you're awesome!

This is terribly rude! He took her out to dinner to tell her this! I would assume that he's paying anyways but I could think of worse ways to tell them something they don't want to hear!

He's just an idiot. I don't think he meant any harm, he probably thought breaking up in person was the kindest way of doing it. perhaps he still really wanted to be your friend and hoped the feelings would be mutual enough for the dinner to continue smoothly.
he's a moron for assuming this though.

Well that's kinda harsh. I think he tried to mean well at least by telling her in person. Just over dinner isn't the best way to do it. I wouldn't walk out and order a bunch of expensive stuff just to leave him with the bill, that's just mean, they were only casually dating anyway.

Cheater and liar? If you classify it as "casually seeing each other", then you should not expect to be exclusive. And if you're not exclusive there is no cheating.

#50, I'm honestly curious because I don't think I understand this convo, but why is that repulsive? Do you dress up all the time? Or is it repulsive because #33 dresses up to improve his chances of sex? It seems like as good a reason as any, but I wish I understood your complaint better.

(Fully expecting to be downvoted to Hell for daring to ask.)

I don't see why a person wouldn't dress to impress. In my opinion isn't that why anyone dresses up nice for the opposite sex (atleast in a date situation). If you showed up looking like a slob I know I wouldn't want to do anything with you, regardless if you are a man or a woman. The more you impress the person the more chance of getting some booty. So why not?

  GraceyBlueEyes  |  13

Is it repulsive because you imply that not dressing up means not looking nice? Or because sometimes looking nice increases the chance of sex? Or maybe you are one of those people who cannot leave the house without spending minimum an hour on your appearance. On your profile you say you don't bite but you have already proven to be quite the bitch.

Not a single thing she said makes it okay for you to call her a bitch - she actually had valid points.
People dress up to reach certain goals. You dress up for a job interview to impress the interviewer and get the job. You dress nicely for work to have a professional air about you.
You dress up for a date to look nice for your date, because that's just what you do. It's nice to dress up. It boosts self esteem, it makes people look at you different... It is NOT a bad thing. And who knows, they may have gone to a fancy restaurant! You're supposed to wear dressier clothes to those.

Pretty sure her saying it was repulsive is a bitchy thing to say and I stand by it.

I was also saying theres nothing wrong with dressing up even if it's for sex? Not sure if you are confused with who I aimed it at (33).

I think going out for a beer or ice cream or anything not as long as a whole meal would have been smarter. You can pay upfront. Explain while drinking the beer and then everyone leaves. Much better IMO.

40, True, your idea is much better. But I bet the guy wasn't thinking clearly cause he felt bad and thought his only options were text, call, or in person, and he probably didn't want it to seem like he was making small of their relationship by just saying it and leaving, hence the dinner. But I think just saying it and leaving probably would've been less awkward and better for both. Bet he's wishing he did it short and sweet now.
