36. Don’t neg.
“Negging doesn’t work. I went in a date with a guy I had a crush on in high school. It was a slam dunk for him but he insulted me for the fact I had a tattoo and when I went to the bathroom I came back to a random girl screaming at him. Apparently he insinuated that she was spoiled because she lived in a certain neighborhood that is known to be extremely wealthy. I was gone for two minutes.
So I told her not to worry about him, he insulted me too and I won’t be bringing him back to this bar. I said it right in front of him. His jaw dropped, I paid for our drinks and I had him take me home. During the drive I explained to him that he said a lot of wrong things and it wasn’t going to happen.
Also I don’t know why he insulted her. Earlier he brought up having a financial advisor and his dad taught him and hired him to program at his dad’s company.”
