My first dating. I wanted that day to be the best in my life. I put on high-heeled shoes. I made up my face and put on a white dress. I went their by car. As I was in a hurry I forgot to take my mobile phone with me. On the way to the restaurant my car had been broken. I decided to repair it and soiled my white dress. I was late and I even couldn’t call Him. When at last I got to the restaurant I had been late for an hour. I ran to Him but my shoes were so uncomfortable that I fell over just near His table. He looked at me surprisingly and told that the problem was not that I was late and not that I entered the restaurant in such a spectacular way and even not that my dress is dirty. He just didn’t like girls with heavy make-up.
