Why I never get a second date

Sitting by the river, the girl moves a bit closer to me as she begins to speak:

“Oh Andreas, isn’t this the most beautiful sunset? I am so glad we came here to enjoy this moment together.”

DSCN2952We both continue to stare into the distance, most likely harboring similar thoughts.

But then I cannot resist:

“Honey, it’s actually not a sunset. The sun doesn’t set or rise. We are the ones moving, as our planet orbits around the sun and rotates around its own axis. This creates the impression of the sun moving, when in reality it is the fixed point in our solar system.”

Another pause, after which I add, maybe with too much hauteur in my voice:

“But I thought everybody knew that.”

A few seconds pass before she looks at me with sad eyes, gets up and walks away, never to be seen or heard of again.

These stupid sunsets ruin everything.

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a journalist, a spy or a hobo.

    You should mention the“ moonshine“ and explain that….you will probably get faceslapped on top.Just in case you need a memory of some sort of a burning sensation

    Too much intellect for your own good, same goes for me. Makes it hard to appreciate things for what it is.

    Most women are dumb.

    It’s not you, it’s the locations you pick for your dates… next time try museums, libraries or bookstores :))
