Fuckup -- When you forget your wallet
I had an online date first date set up tonight.
On the drive there, I realize I forgot the wallet. Met with her, and I asked her if she'd like to come closer to my place in my car, so I can get my wallet. Of course the answer is no -- only dumb girls will get in the car of a stranger. I then ask her if she wants to just talk and hang out for a bit -- answer is of course no because of the negative feelings I've created with my first statement. She was so pissed.
I had to come home and call up my FB.
This is the first time I forgot my wallet on a date, but I have had to drive back to my place in the past going out with friends because I left my wallet.
Off chance you need this advice, here are my ideas.
Open naturally, be friendly, make small talk. BUILD RAPPORT. Don't take more than 5-10 minutes, so you don't waste her time.
Apologize and bring up that you forgot your wallet.
If connection is good, see if you can offer paypal or venmo payment so you can have something to eat or drink.
If not, just exist, offer a rain check, offer to treat her next time.
The objective is to get a day 2
Under no circumstances offer desperate, creepy, or be too apologetic. I've done at least 2/3 of the above!
