Yi guys! My friend was talking up this guy she knows—telling me that he was funny, smart and the hottest guy ever. She gave me his number and we talked on the phone a few times and really clicked. I tried looking him up on facebook, but his profile was private so I couldn’t see a picture of him. Everything else my friend said about him was right, so I agreed to go out with him. When I got to the restaurant, he was repulsive. Gross teeth, bad hair, dirty finger nails...the list goes on. I struggled through dinner and have avoided him since. Now my friend wants to know why I’m not talking to him and I can’t tell her it’s because the friend she set me up with is hideous. Help!
Slacker and Steve have both noticed that when someone wants to set you up on a date, they always boast about how hot the other person is. The problem is that there's no tactful way to tell your friend that you think the person's ugly! If you do tell them, they have to tell the guy why they're being stood up, and that won't go well.
I'd just tell her. I don't really understand why you would try and tell your friend something else here, and I don't think that she would tell the guy what you think. I probably wouldn't go on and on about how the guy is grotesque, but I would pin point something that really bothered me. In this case, let's say the bad teeth. Just say that you really focus on a guy's smile and his just wasn't cutting it for you.
What do you think Brittany should do?
