    Guacamole Always Beats Romance

    | Tampa, FL, USA | Engaged

    (I am out to dinner with my finance.)

    Me: “So, I read this story on Not Always Romantic—”

    Fiancé: *interrupting* “You have guacamole on your forehead.”

    With Great Bacon, Comes Great Responsibility, Part 14

    | Las Vegas, NV, USA | Dating

    (My boyfriend and I are at a restaurant, discussing shows we want to see. I bring up a show I’ve wanted to see for a while.)

    Boyfriend: “Oh! We totally need to see that one. It has a great soundtrack. Oh, but my ex gave me that CD.”

    Me: “Then let’s make a different happy memory associated with that show instead.”

    Boyfriend: “Yeah! You’re right!”

    Me: “Uh-huh.”

    Boyfriend: “You are the bacon of my life!”

    Me: “The what?”

    Boyfriend: “You make everything better!”

    Not The For Richer Or Poorer Type

    | UT, USA | Dating

    (I’m seated next to a couple who seem to be on their first date at a popular South American themed restaurant. The guy is talking rather loudly about some time he spent in Argentina.)

    Guy: “…and Argentina is so cheap because they have exchange rates down there. Do you know what an exchange rate is?”

    Girl: “Um… no…”

    Guy: “It’s like this. The exchange rate is seven pesos to one dollar! If you bring $10 you now have $70! You’re seven times richer!”

    Out For Blood

    | Temecula, CA, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (My husband and I are out eating at a popular chain buffet. I grab some of the roast beef, which still seems to be a little raw, if the red, blood-like fluid coming from it means anything. I’ve been on my cycle for a few days now.)

    Me: “This isn’t very good… It’s really plain and looks like it’s bleeding.”

    Husband: “So are you…”

    (I can’t help laughing but I’m really glad no one else heard him!)

    Not Being Straight With Each Other

    | UT, USA | Family/Kids, Flirting/How We Met, LGBTQ

    (I am a gay male but haven’t come out to my family yet. I am house sitting for my grandma while she is in a nursing home recovering from surgery. She has set up a blind date between me and a female nurse. I don’t want to upset her and am not ready to come out, so I go. We are having a great time, but toward the end of the night I start getting really uncomfortable because I don’t want to lead her on.)

    Me: “Hey, uh… I need to tell you something about me…”

    Date: “Yeah… I need to tell you something, too.”

    (She also seems really nervous about something, but I knew that if I didn’t go first I would never get it out.)

    Me: “I’m gay. I only came on this date for Nana.”

    (She starts laughing, and I am so embarrassed I get up to leave.)

    Date: “No, wait. I’m not laughing at you. I’m laughing because I am a lesbian. That’s what I needed to tell you.”

    (We both had a laugh at the way Nana roped us into the date and have been close friends ever since!)
