That would be negging, of course. But you should strive to be. This happened to me once, on a date I otherwise thought was picture-perfect. We were sharing drinks beneath the sunset, just like in the movies, when the whole thing was torpedoed with one soul-crushing comment.
He was 30, and I was just He was wise and sure of himself, while I had very little idea of who I was or what my future held. I did think he was interesting.
