So the date was going well it was so much fun we went to a 21 and over arcade

Talked for a long while, then played a bunch of pinball. Here's the kicker though at the end of the date he asked me out again hugged me and said goodbye then didn't walk me to my car. I parked over a block away it was after midnight and we live in a rough city with a lot of crime. I debating asking him for my safety but didn't and basically ran to my car hoping I didn't run into any trouble down the unlit scary street I was parked on. It bothers me so much that he didn't walk me to my car I don't think I want to go out with him again. He did text me telling me he had a good time and let him know I made it home okay, but it just really irks me he didn't consider my safety getting to my car. I know I should have spoken up, I guess I felt awkward.

I always walk women back to their cars. One time, this woman seemed quite unease about that. I found it odd. The thing was, she was dressed like a princess but driving the most beat up and dirty car I’ve ever seen. She seemed very embarrassed about that.
@eMortal yes I can see how some people may be embarrassed by their car. I just didn't expect to not be walked to my car, but maybe I am old fashioned in thinking that would be the norm.

Some guys weren’t raised to be gentlemen so it’s up to you to decide whether to a) ditch him or b) next time tell him what you need; ask him to please walk you to your car. If he says no or hums and hods over it then you know he’s a dick and don’t go out with him again
@Jenny1234 yes I am new back into dating so I need to be more assertive about that I guess.

1st of all, why park there?
Secondly, just tell the guy! Most men are genuinely nice, but not very thoughtfull, help him out and u might found urself a wonderfull man
@Melanie2003 there was no parking near where we went. In hindsight I should have asked him to walk me I guess it was nerves

@SlippingAway sorry, you’re right. It’s much easier to think this stuff afterwards then at the actual moment

You should have asked him to walk you to your car,and you should have kissed him.

As, statisically, a man is in more danger in the streets than a woman is, maybe you should have walked him to his car.

Some men don't even think about safety. I just doesn't occur to them that you could feel afraid. Some men don't get that chilvary training.

Well I'm glad you are ok

It may have slipped his mind and regrets not doing so. It happens.

Next time don't park so far away
@Tobasco I had no choice there was no parking nearby
Tobasco · 31-35, F
@SlippingAway then you should have asked him to walk you to your car. He's not a mind reader.
@Tobasco I know I should have, I froze
