I almost died on a first Date

15 years ago, I found myself in a harrowing situation on a first date in Newport Beach, California. The woman I was with happened to be a striking Playboy model, and despite being stuck in the friend zone, I was determined to impress her.

The date took an unexpected turn when, just 30 minutes in, she challenged me to a drinking competition. Eager to make an impression, I accepted without much thought. Little did I know that she had a serious alcohol problem.

As the night unfolded, we moved from one bar to another, downing drink after drink. She showed no signs of slowing down, and I felt compelled to keep up. The result was a blackout, and my next recollection was waking up in a hospital room, battered, suffering from alcohol poisoning, and nursing an excruciating headache.

Predictably, the model I had been out with was far from impressed, and a second date never materialized.

This experience taught me some valuable lessons:

  1. Moderation is Key: It’s crucial not to exceed your alcohol limits, especially on a date. Becoming intoxicated is never a good look.
  2. Authenticity Wins: Trying too hard to impress someone can often backfire. Authenticity and being yourself are more attractive than pretense.
  3. Look Beyond Appearances: Physical attractiveness can be deceiving. What truly matters are a person’s character, values, goals, habits, and morals. Clarify your relationship priorities.

In the end, this disastrous date served as a powerful teacher, providing insights and a memorable story. Sharing it today is not only a source of amusement but also a cautionary tale to help you avoid the pitfalls I once encountered on a date.
