    unfortunate first date – how to make it better

    so i’m working in a small town and i’ve been messaging with this guy for some time now – he seems so great – smart and funny and we have tons of things in common. we finally meet in person and have a great time! then, at the end of the date, we find his car has been broken into – a bunch of important stuff was stolen. now, i feel terrible and don’t know how to make things better and also feel like he won’t want to see me again. am i being totally ridiculous? how do i make things better? i have been pretty forward up until now – do i just let him be?

    Definitely an unfortunate situation. I kinda don’t think the guy is mad at you. I tend to think he’s just pissed off due to his belongings being stolen. I don’t think there’s anything you can do to make him feel better about that. Give him a week or so to figure things out and then pop him a text, if he didn’t pop one back to you already.

    It wasn’t your fault. Don’t make things awkward and just play it cool. Stuff like that happens all the time whether he was with you or not. You be the one to invite him to a date this time.
