Okay I did it. And I am so glad I did. I thought he was this amazing person and I don't know if he felt it coming or if he was just angry but it turned into a huge fight and he when he was driving me home he started driving very dangerously. I asked him to pull over and he wouldn't so in the middle of a major road at 2 am, I got out and started walking home. He took off and I haven't talked to him since. That's not the way I wanted things to happen but I guess it is better that he showed his true colors early. I would rather be alone that have someone that doesn't take my life into consideration. And the amazing thing is on Sunday I was asked out by two guys. Now they come out of the woodwork!

So thank you to everyone for your advice. If I wouldn't have followed it then I may have put myself in a potentially dangerous situation.

I wish it wasn't so hard to date. It seems like finding a good man is impossible. I have better luck finding a great pair of shoes!

Oh and I told my Mom about the situation and she gave me a great piece of advice. If a man is taking you out on a date. Have him make it a proper date. He should have the plans beforehand and he should be on time with flowers. If he doesn't then he isn't really serious. And for a first date that's really not too much to ask. I think since I may start following this. It will be an easy way to weed out the nice guys from the jerks without wasting too much time :)

I agree with your mother other than the flowers - not really necessary - I have always followed that rule and never regretted having those standards.

Congratulations for biting the bullet! Its always tough to break up with someone - but given the reaction, it should be easier to move on :) And looks like you've have plenty of opportunity to move on...woohoo! Nice guys make dates and show up on time, I'm in agreement too...keep us posted! Go.
