Green teeth and Juggalos

All I could think about was, why did I do this to myself?  I met this guy earlier on a dating site and agreed to pick him up to go on a date. It has been a few years since this date took place and for the life of me now, I can’t remember why I accepted. He looked decent in his profile pics except for a couple, where he seemed to have a clown face painted on a long with some of his friends.  That made me wonder but at the same time I did not want to judge, even though I am not a fan of clowns at all. They remind me of IT and they are just creepy in general. I remember telling him “As long as you guys don’t promote hate in your little gathering, I have no issue with it”. That was before we met.

After I pulled up to his house, I had a dreaded feeling this was not going to go well and as the guy started walking to my car, I thought Wow, he is so thin (not that there is anything wrong with thin people I just prefer bulkier men and he looked bigger in his pictures)I was not attracted to him, but I couldn’t say that. I wanted to give him a chance. We went to this Mexican restaurant and start ordering. Seeing him in the light my stomach dropped in regret but when he opened his mouth, I think I cried a little inside. What is that green stuff in between his teeth? I tried not to think about it or stare at his mouth for too long while he tried to make conversation. “So where are you from?” he asked with enthusiasm.

“Uhhh…I was raised in Mexico but born in Spain”. I could barely keep my head in the dating game. All I could think about is how do you get that kind of green gunk in your teeth?

It wasn’t the dark green that some people get from bad dental hygiene. It was like a pear green from the different shades below and it was in between his teeth:

As the evening wore on and I struggled to keep up with the conversation he mentioned a second date. I mumbled something about going to Mexico soon to visit friends and family. “Aww…I’ll miss you” he exclaimed with a huge grin on his face, showing those pearly whites with green gunk.

“Uhuh” I stated. The feeling is not mutual. I thought.

Suffice it to say we did not have a second date. I told him later that I was not feeling it and we parted ways. I was too focused on how someone gets that kind of green build up in between their teeth. I was unable to think about anything else for the rest of the night and I still had to take him home. Unfortunately, it would take me a few times to realize that picking someone up on the first date is not the way to go.

Have you gone on a first date with someone who had poor hygiene? Did you give him or her a second chance and did it work out or did you run for the hills?

    After what feels like a million tinder horror dates, I’ve decided I’m never going to ignore the warning bells I hear…., I would have driven off before he got to the car and left him to wonder ‘WTF?’all by himself. We are too nice.

      Hey. Thanks so much for being the first to comment! I completely agree, we are too nice. I tried not to get the superficial side of me take over, then again, I was also scared to tell him it just wasn’t going to work out face to face. The world is getting more volatile and you never know how people will react.

        Yes and mental illness is on the rise, someone might shoot you. 😭 one day we’ll get enough courage to spill a drink on the head of a horribly rude date….. or at least walk out 🤣
