If you are wondering what happened with Marina after The Bulgarian Princess, this is what happened:
The Bulgarian Princess Part Two
Date 6: Too Much Dutch
I got chatting to Cathy on tinder. She asked me how a girl was supposed to get my interest. My answer was to avoid endless small talk and beating around the bush. With that we quickly swapped numbers and arranged a date for Wednesday. I was off work on Thursday and Friday so all the more reason to have a few drinks. I knew Cathy worked in logistics for a construction company. She was 5’6 with brown hair, blue eyes and a slim body.
Cathy arrived at the bar early and sat down and got herself a corona. When I arrived we exchange pleasantries and I ordered myself a g&t. Cathy was wearing jeans boots and a flowery top. I have to admit my first impression was a little disappointed. Cathy looked nice but I was rather underwhelmed.
Conversation started off a little slow. Cathy seemed quite nervous. I looked around and quickly realised nearly everyone in the bar was on a date. We were in a reasonably popular bar not far from the city. It was very full for a Wednesday, much more so than I expected. Maybe Wednesday is date night after all?
Cathy caught me eyeing up a ridiculously cute blonde opposite us and asked did I know her. I made up that I knew her from somewhere to hide the fact I’d been gawking at her, oops. Cathy had done a fair bit of online dating so wasn’t sure why she was nervous. We talked about various travelling we had both done as well as work. It was all very boring to be perfectly honest. Cathy admitted to having a glass of wine at home before the date, again feeding the nervous impression I had. I wouldn’t have thought that was a normal thing to do before a mid-week date?
I went to the bathroom and returned to find Cathy staring at a door that I hadn’t left through to get to the bathroom. We had previously discussed what we thought was behind the door as there were no signs on it. She seemed to have expected me to return though that door. I suddenly realised that she was very drunk. I asked her why she was expecting me to come our that door and her response made absolutely no sense. The sudden turnaround was unbelievable considering Cathy seemed perfectly fine a few minutes prior to that. It was about 10.30 on a Wednesday and we had only been there about two hours. I found this hilarious. Either Cathy was a fierce lightweight or it was more than a glass of wine before she came out!
What Cathy was saying was so bizarre that I decided I needed some evidence for friends to actually believe how drunk she was. I asked her again why she was staring at the door and started recording her answer on my phone. She of course didn’t notice and waffled on for about a minute and a half making no sense whatsoever. I kept that audio recording for later. Perhaps I would send it to Cathy to tease her the next day.
We didn’t stay much longer and decided to leave at about 11 o’clock. Cathy was hungry and wanted to get food before heading home. She suggested a Chinese around the corner and we went even though I didn’t want anything. When we got there she ordered a 3 in 1 and a large can of 7up. I pointed out that I didn’t think they sold large cans of 7up and the staff laughed at me. They knew she was quite drunk.
I didn’t order anything and when she went to pay with card they said they only accepted cash. Cathy had no cash so I offered to pay for her food. When I got change back after paying I commented on how expensive large cans of 7up are these days. The staff laughed at me again. Cathy was oblivious. We walked to the train station down the road. When we sat down on a bench cathy got ready to eat her 3 in 1 only to realise she hadn’t gotten a fork. We proceeded to walk back to get her one. I made her go in and get it herself!
We walked back to the train station again and sat down. Cathy put the brown paper bag across our knees and opened up the 3 in 1. I gave her some assistance with the food. I figured it had to be eaten by the time the train came or I might of ended up waiting at the station for longer. It was really cold as well. Of course she dropped a few bits of food which fell on my leg and stained my jeans. It made be chuckle but seethe a little bit on the side too!
We finished the food in good time and her train soon came. I left Cathy to enjoy her regular sized 7up on the train as I was heading in the opposite direction.
What would you do with the audio clip?
