Honestly, I was a little freaked out by his intensity.My instincts proved correct when I received texts from him over Thanksgiving telling me that he had purchased tickets to a concert a few days after I got back to the city.Then, out of the corner of my eye I saw a friend from college and he came up to say hi.After my friend left, he asked me if I’d had “a thing” with him in college.He was on his fifth drink in the past two hours, so I politely waited for him to finish and walk me home. If a guy offends you, say something, and end the date early. In case things go south fast, you can slap a twenty on the bar and leave that much faster.Anyone knows how torturous messaging back and forth with a cute guy can be, so I was relieved when this guy finally asked me on a date. At the end of the evening, he paid the bill and we both stood up to say our goodbyes.He was already seated when I walked over, and he looked just like his pictures. At 5’1" and in heels, it came as a surprise to me to realize that he stood eye to eye with me.I would be lying if I said this didn’t bother me at all.

That’s when I realized I had a stage five clinger, and I couldn’t see him again. An overeager guy can be flattering, but it can also a major red flag. This was my second online date, and it didn’t take long for me to figure out he wasn’t the guy for me.I’m somewhat of an online dating connoisseur now—and a hopeful success story, too.
