In the middle of the perfect date and my phone keeps vibrating in my bag. I go to the little girls room (I call it that when I’m trying to be cute). I look at my phone and my landlady called me three times. What the hell does she have to tell me that is so important at eight o’clock at night.
Met this guy on OK Cupid and I finally worked up the courage to take him up on his offer to take me out on a date. Makes no sense to online date if you only stay online, at some point you have to go on a date, I don’t want to end up on Catfish the TV Show.
I had such a hard time selecting an outfit to wear, because men are visual and I wanted him to think I looked good. It’s one thing for me to feel like I look good, but if he doesn’t think so, what’s the point. I wore my hair up and settled on my favorite blue halter dress with pink pumps. That should do it.
It’s a first date and we met online, so I wanted to meet him at the restaurant, he doesn’t need to know where I live. We are going to my favorite restaurant too, Cafeteria. Best place ever, well one of them. I got in a cab and made my way into the city, fifteen minutes before we were to meet at seven o’clock. I arrived five minutes after seven and there he was waiting for me by the bar. He looked so handsome sitting there in a white polo shirt with pants the color of red wine. He turned around as I was walking up behind him and all I could do was smile.
The conversation flowed, we shared and laughed as though we’ve been dating for months. I couldn’t stop looking at him and loved the way he looked at me. I had my purse on my lap and I could feel every time my phone went off. Im in the middle of the perfect date and my phone keeps vibrating in my bag. I go to the little girls room (I call it that when I’m trying to be cute). I look at my phone and my landlady called me three times.

I call my landlady back while Im in the restroom. She is so upset, the next door neighbor saw a light on in the empty room downstairs from my apartment, he went inside to check it out and there are a bunch of people in the room setting up lights and cameras and told him they are having a photo shoot with Zoe, one of my roommates that my best friend Janee and I rented our spare room to save money. I know nothing about a photo shoot or why this girl would be in any room that she is not paying for. I told the landlady I will get to the bottom of it and I will call her right back.
After hanging up with the landlady I call Janee to see if she is home, apparently she got an ear full from the landlady as well and she is heading home. I call Zoe and ask her what is going on over there because Im hearing she is having a photo shoot in the landlady’s place, she tells me they were just waiting in the room and the photo shoot will be in her room. I told her to get those people out of there and reminded her that we live on the third floor not the second or the first so none of her guest should be down there for any reason. I called the landlady back to let her know it is taken care of, but before I could get a word out, she says “I don’t care about any lease you girls have, I want you out NOW.” What the f**k...
