Maybe things happen for a reason?

A couple of weeks ago I posted about how I went to a club with a friend of mine, I was kind of interested in this guy & I left before she did (I had to go to work the next day but she didn't) and he ended up asking her out. she texted me to ask if I would mind if she went out w/ him cause she didn't want me to be mad at her. Since I could tell that night that he wasn't interested in me anyway, I told her she might as well go.
So she called me to report on the date and she didn't have fun with him. Now first of all, I don't know why she even bothered to give him her number cause she told him she wasn't interested in dating--I think he was just persistent. Then she said she wasn't attracted to him--well I was, but everybody has their own preference for looks. so I do think she went into it not liking him and had a more negative view. I asked why she didn't have fun and first she said they got lost on the way to the restaurant (or he got lost on the way to her house--I couldn't hear her on the cell phone that well) because he didn't either Google the directions first and he didn't have a GPS. And I guess he went way out of the way. Then he called her "hon" and "babe" which she thought was too forward for the 1st date--I guess if you don't really like someone, that makes you cringe, if you liked someone a lot, you'd be thrilled, right? The thing that stood out for me was that she said that he gambled a lot on poker, like betting $10,000 on a game--I don't really have much tolerance for gambling. If he wins regularly, that's fine--some people can make a living out of playing poker, but if he loses, it's irresponsible. He has 5 kids--teens or older and I imagine some are in college so that would be bad if he was losing money and not paying their tuition or something. When I heard he had 5 kids, I thought right there that he probably wouldn't have much time for a relationship, since he mentioned that he was always doing activities w/ his kids--but I just would have liked a date with a good looking guy, since I haven't had one in so long.
