I should have been giddy, but instead I felt apprehensive.We'd been dating for a few months, but this was the first time I was going to one of his shows. " I asked, flashing back to Jerry Seinfeld and man hands and close talking.
Luke told his first joke, and the audience just stared at him. All I remember was that my face flushed and I felt...angry. While he was generally a good guy, he was also needy. Ditto for our second date, only this time he came back to my place.
(The Frisky) -- It was a drizzly night, and I was walking down the street with Luke, my boyfriend at the time, to a comedy club where he was performing that night.
He held an umbrella over my head and had his arm wrapped around my shoulder.
My friends laughed at the punch line, but when they walked away, John was visibly angry. Then a pair of hot blondes waltzed in and sat down at the table next to us. Seriously, he'd dropped our conversation to joke with these two women he didn't even know?
A few weeks later, I brought John to a party and he started telling two of my friends a story about a trip to Italy. " I said, excited because I'd just gone myself a few months before meeting him. " He shot me a disapproving glance, like I'd just slapped a puppy. Rather than bending over backwards to make people laugh, I wish he'd just relax. Five months later, though we were still dating, I felt pretty sure John wasn't the guy for me. I had gussied myself up for the occasion and he, of course, wore a T-shirt.He turned back to my friends and continued his story -- something about staying in an old monastery and thinking it was haunted. (Don't even get me started on the comedian dress code.) We were having a good time, and I thought maybe I was being hard on him.
