There are some people that just cannot seem to get their act together when dating. They asked the girl of their dreams out when she was in a group and another girl accepted the invitation. Stuck with someone they don't want to date, they go on the date anyway. Then, they finally end up with the date of their dreams. They will be disappointed to find out they put the wrong date in their calendar & showed up a day late. She'll never give him another chance.
These incidents are more common than people believe. Asking women out for dates is not always easy for men. They get nervous and make mistakes. Some of them never recover from this condition and continue to go through life this way. It is no wonder they end up as crusty old bachelors. Fortunately, most men grow out of this phase and end up with the partner of their dreams.
