The Accidental Date

I normally don't do two posts in one day, but I am seriously freaking out!!!

I think I just accidentally agreed to go out on a date tonight.

I'm talking to my coworker, Charles, about going to see The Hunger Games last night.

He seemed a little upset that I had seen it last night and then went on to mention how he didn't have anyone to go and see it with him.

I don't even remember what I said or how I said it, but it was something along the lines of

Oh, I'd see it again.

Next thing I know he's looking up movie times and ordering us tickets for tonight.

I felt sorry he didn't have anyone to go with and I wasn't thinking what it really meant when I said I'd go.

I'm probably just over exaggerating and he doesn't think it's a date. Just two coworkers who have never done anything outside of work before (unless you count that one time we went to a patient's fundraiser with my dad) going to a movie together...that he paid for.

I don't date. I don't know these things!!!

Mona says I unknowingly flirt all the time. I am just being my normal nice polite friendly self, but Mona says it's flirting.

And the worst thing is having to tell Mona and Becky about this. Becky and another girl at work have been trying to get me to go out with Charles for the past year.

I have always firmly refused.

I don't know what happened.

I think I'm feeling sick.

It's NOT a date.

I can't go...right?


  1. you should go.
    how can you sleep at night knowing that you broke someone's heart?

    1. That's the problem I won't be able to sleep either way!!

  2. What's wrong with dating, accidental or otherwise? Just curious. :)

    1. I just hate it. I'm super awkward about dating. And every time I tell a guy no I ball my eyes's a natural reaction if we've been dating two months or he's just asking me out for the first time. I'm just overall weird when it comes to guys. Plus this guy is coworker. #singleforlife

  3. I am not a fan of the dating myself. It would be so much easier if we could just be like "Hey--you're cute. Let's co-habitate with the intention of eventually making it legal and procreating. Whaddya think?" Object of affection says "yes," and life is good--provided you don't have ugly kids, of course.

    1. I just told my sister that I wish I could just jump into the middle of a relationship.
