An Open Letter to the Man Who Criticized Me on a First Date
Carrie Allie

This reminds me of a coffee meet-up (won’t even call it a date) with a tech-app-developer-sold-start-up-company-at-18 dude who completely monopolized the conversation, showed zero interest in me personally and used the meeting as an exercise in self-aggrandizement.

I had agreed to meet up because I followed his blog and already thought he was pretty cool, but that ended up killing it for me.

I was younger and naiver then. Nowadays, if someone is straight-up condescending or rude, I excuse myself via the bathroom and don’t return :-D
