Today's game features three men vying for a statuesque redhead waitress, Emily. (That isn't her to the right, it's apparently a hot photographer, but still, same sort of ballpark.)
Brian: I refuse to fly.
Ray: I only spend $10 on a date.
Chris: My dog is my number one priority.
Of these, the $10 on a date thing would be the most worrisome to me. Seriously, $10 buys you almost nothing, and plenty of restaurants have good meal deals now for couples. (i.e. Two dinners, an appetizer and a bottle of wine for $25 to $40.) Refusing to fly is troublesome, but a reasonable fear, plus it would allow for some neat cross-country road trips. And having a love for pets? Ain't no thang!
Chris: I don't let my girlfriends meet my parents.
Brian: I left a six-figure job to start a band.
Ray: I talk to my mom at least five times a day.
The third one is definitely the deal breaker to me, and Emily agrees with me. Woohoo! Sorry, but I'd rather have someone absent from their family (option 1) as opposed to way too into them (option 3). The band thing is concerning, but it would matter a lot to me whether the band was any good. And the mom guy is ALSO the $10 date guy, so he's really screwing the pooch.
Brian: I dated a porn star.
Chris: My ex's eyes are tattooed on my back.
The eyes thing is definitely worse to me, since it's permanent. Chris (tat guy) even takes off his shirt, and it's worse than it seems, since the tat is HUGE, with a big dagger between the eyes! Holy smokes. She sends Chris home. This leaves us with Emily's reveal, which is one of the following three things:
- I was in a lesbian relationship for three years.
- I've served hard time.
- My heart still belongs to my ex.
She reveals that her baggage is... my heart still belongs to my ex. Brian said this would be the biggest sticking point, and it would be for me as well. But, he accepts her baggage. Personally, I wouldn't - That's a pretty big thing to be dealing with, and I prefer to start with a clean slate.
Note: I could also use a neat header for this feature. Anyone want to make me one in Photoshop or Paint? My skills with it kind of stink, so if you're game, feel free to e-mail me your design at firstname.lastname@example.org.
