Someone said :
Went on a date once, we had known each other for ages and got on well but never quite managed to be in town at the same time. Then our evening finally came and it was going well.
Then during our drinks... like, his landlord with +1 showed up (was it his ex-wife? or girlfriend? I can't remember the relationship but they both came to join us for drinks) but he (my date) started behaving really, really differently.
They were texting him before they arrived, and we were in Pantibar. He said something like "am I cool?" for them to join us. I wasn't sure what he meant but he seemed to be checking if I was "OK with acting normal/civil in a drinking group", thinking back that should have rang alarm bells, but like I said, we knew each other for a while and I just assumed he expressed himself clumsily, and just meant "do you mind I let some of my friends join us".
After introductions his behavior completely changed. I was named to them, exchanged small talk and they just started drinking together.
I was eventually... kinda bullied out of the group, like it slowly turn from us being on a date, to him and two of his friends having drinks in panti-bar with me clumsily observing them in silence.
Come closing time, we needed to decide on a late venue, I was still giving him the benefit of the doubt, but I specifically suggested The George.
The three of them agreed and I went ahead to find an ATM (or something, I forget why we split).
I went to The George, and they weren't there, they had, without telling me, gone to another venue, and essentially 'ditched' me.
The next morning he sold me a story about phone battery, or wi-fi, or not hearing me properly, or the friends wife needed to go somewhere else, or something, but I just phased him out and haven't seen him or talked to him since.
as a Bonus D.L.C. for this story, that same night I met three very old gay men in the front bar of the George, and they were the nicest, most polite, funniest, happiest gay people I've ever met and maybe the young, self entitled, internalized-homophobic-cunts my age need to learn a bit of how to be happy and confidant from them.
They were obviously not the right people for you to be around.. The Universe put you where you were meant to be..
