Ew, smokers. I would have left the moment he claimed he was going to go smoke. But that sucks OP, I guess he just wanted to spare your feelings? Or he's a coward and runs from situations he gets nervous in.
Regardless of whether it is harmful or not, it is their lifestyle choice. And by saying "ew" you're implying that you're better than them. You're not. No one is. Get off your high horse and let people make their own lifestyle choices. By bitching about your own disease and asthma you make yourself seem entitled. They buy their own damn cigarettes and pay the damn taxes on them. Rather take responsibility for your own disease and leave. I know this isn't politically correct, but why can't people have the freedom of choice, and why is someone else's happiness (the asthma person) valued over another. Because someone smokes, does it define them? Oh and cancer-causing carcinogens? That's a little repetitive isn't it? And no, I don't smoke and never will.
@GlitterValentina: No. You are incorrect. Saying "ew" implies that one thinks something is disgusting, not that one believes oneself is better than others. YOU get off your high horse. You're right -- smoking IS a lifestyle choice. An illness such as asthma is NOT. Also note that the young woman you attacked has every intention of following the SAME advice you gave her -- leaving a date upon finding out that an individual is a smoker (because second-hand smoke is a precipitating factor for her asthma). Don't be a moron.
29 - she wasn't 'bitching' about her disease, the only one bitching here is you. If you knew anything about having asthma you would know that being around smoke of any kind can cause uncomfortable (and potentially deadly) attacks, where the person's lungs close up. That's a perfectly legitimate reason to not want to be around someone who is smoking. If you're a smoker and you knowing smoke around someone who has asthma, you're an asshole. If you don't care about your own health that's fine, but don't put someone else's life at risk.
10, I'm severely allergic to all smoke, including camp fire smoke. But I don't drop a date just because the guy smokes. What if everything else about that person is amazing and makes you happy? I'm speaking from personal experience. People shouldn't be too quick to judge. To OP, at least you know you won't be dating a guy with no balls. He should have been upfront and said, "It's nice that our friend wanted us to meet but I only get a friend vibe for you. How about we finish our date and if we want to be friends, then we can be (or something along those lines)." 19, my boyfriend smoked only a few ciggs a day when we were first together. He quit because of our baby is about to be born. I've been with him over a year and not once as he ever smoked around me. You've implied that all smokers smoke around non-smokers. That isn't true. There are people who smoke and are considerate of others. While you don't have to agree with their choices, you shouldn't put smokers all in one category.
29 Wait what ? So I should just keep my mouth shut if I don't like what someone is doing ? We are only allowed to speak our mind if we agree ? Come on she has the right to say 'ew' about a smoker if she wants to, that's a point of view and we can agree or not and talk about it. Following your way of thinking you shouldn't even have posted a comment, as you were being as much as a 'judgmental bitch' she was.
You need to chill the fuck out. Everything you're saying is just bullshit, madam. We know this is a free country in American so it makes it free to tell the smoker to smoke at least 20 feet away if the person has asthma or some breathing problems. You are acting like a cold hearted bitch. Just cause the poster said "ew" doesn't mean they are higher then the smoker, they just don't appeal to the things they know are wrong we all have our opinions and we all agree smoking is bad.
That's just so rude. Even if you weren't his type, he didn't even have the courtesy to at least continue on with the date.
What a douche bag. Good riddance! You can do better than that asshole. Keep trying op!
