Is this an acceptable behavior during a date?
PC gamer speaking. Yes you heard that right, I’m a friggin nerd with little experience with women.
I have been playing World of Warcraft for quite some time and I formed a strong friendship with one of the girls in my guild who lives around 200 km away from me.
I mainly took her as a friend, until one day when she asked me to visit her. A few weeks later, we scheduled a date and I took a day off work yesterday to visit her as there are less people in restaurants during weekdays (which matters a lot now during the global crisis).
Besides taking a day off work, I had to spend nearly 6 hours in my car (3h each direction) and fork out about 110 euros for food (which I wouldn’t mind if she weren’t glued to her phone all the time)
I was eager to meet her in person and have a good chat over lunch. It didn’t turn out as I expected though. We can summarize the date with the following:
* She was messing with her phone the entire time. She did talk to me casually, but she didn’t put the phone aside during the entire lunch. I got 20% of the attention while her phone had 80%.
* She made me drive her around for her errands. I had to drive her to a post office and to the bank, where I ended up waiting inside my car (as per her request), just like a driver.
* She then asked if I would like dinner somewhere and I agreed. During the entire dinner, she behaved exactly the same way as during lunch (giving her phone 80% of the attention).
Now the question here is... would you had been mad in my shoes after taking a day off work, spending 6 hours on the road, paying for her lunch + dinner, being treated as a taxi driver and barely getting to speak to her in return, or is this perfectly acceptable behavior in your eyes?
