Making a first date into a last date

I had been out of the dating scene a few years (in prison) so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone. A woman I had been talking to online lived close to friends I hadn’t scene in years, so I suggested she meet me there. Now I knew my friends to be pretty economically impaired but the house had been solid and usually clean when I last visited. Unfortunately, my friends had recently acquired a new male cat … that had sprayed the entire house!! She eventually found the house and came in to meet me and my friends. She was very polite but you could tell she was appalled by conditions at their house. NOT a great first impression. We went to a local bar for drinks and it soon became apparent that she not only considered the bar a bit “earthy” for her, but she really had NOT been paying attention to our online conversations. She wasn’t even as attractive as I am ( and I’m no prize but still in decent shape for my age!) but you could tell by her dress and accessories she was used to people in higher tax brackets than me & my peers. Although I had told her 2 or 3 times online, she seemed a bit shocked when I mentioned how recently I had been incarcerated. I really believe things would have gone much more smoothly had we not started off the night in a place with such terrible odors. The good news is I DID learn something that night. Having money does NOT give you manners nor the inclination to look past the surface. And being poor isn’t so bad with friends!
