My Worst Date: R-e-b-o-u-n-d

Writing prompt: Tell about the worst date you ever went on.


Without a doubt, my worst date comes to mind without any pondering.
When: Sophomore year of high school.
Who: I won’t mention any names, but my current bf at the time and I had just broken up, and I found a “rebound” right away. [The rebound and I hung out for a few weeks and then my ex and I got back together.]
So one night, the rebound asked me to go the movies on a double date. I remember telling him I would let him know and I’d call him back. I hung up and cried. I was so confused and heartbroken. After about a week, I was going back and forth between my ex and my rebound. Not the best idea I’ve ever had. But reluctantly, I wiped off my tears and decided to go.

I felt so out of place the whole time. I didn’t even really know the other couple. I don’t remember what movie it was, but I do remember that I wore a hoodie and I kept my hands in the pocket the whole time. I didn’t want my hands available to be held. I think not long after that date our fling was pretty much over and I was back to my ex. Well, not until the ex and rebound got into a physical fight… After a couple of punches were thrown, THEN it was over. I told you it wasn’t a good idea.

I’m glad those drama filled years of my early high school career are in the past. I am also glad I am now wiser and have learned many lessons… the hard way of course.
