#7: Too Old for Meet Cute

This week on Why Oh Why, Andrea’s friend Joanna tells the story of a truly horrible first date. It’s one of those dates that makes the other people at the bar uncomfortable—or grateful they’re not in her shoes. Joanna learns an important lesson that some things just don't mix, and that maybe this dip into the dating pool wasn't worth her time. To make matters worse, one of the bar’s regulars (who happens to be frustratingly handsome) is watching it all unfold—and she’d much rather be on a date with him.
