Due to my increased level of anxiety about what the producers of Dates from Hell elected to leave out, I decided to keep a running list of things that I wish they had done differently. I am sure they appreciate this, but whatever. It’s my life.
1. The flower vendor incident did not look anything like that. The vendor was 5′ 5″ and 120 pounds soaking wet. It was totally innocuous.
2. When Marco asked if I wanted to see his place, I declined. He then offered me his ID for safekeeping so I would be at ease he meant me no harm. I then realized his place was three blocks from mine and felt totally fine. I knew exactly where I was.
3. I went up and saw his apartment TWICE that night. The first time was cool, calm and normal. Nothing happened. No big deal. It made me feel comfortable to return there again later even though I was pretty tired at that point.
4. Of course, the whole part about the ordeal at the hospital and with the local police, the reporting of the crime, etc… Someday, someone will find that as interesting as I did and as educational. For now, I give you this site and my best insights.
Bravo to Sharp Entertainment and Discovery. Lots of great attention to detail in an episode that moved at breakneck pace and clearly could have used another 30 minutes!
With confidence, I can tell you…I am done with TV. Enough emotional rollercoaster for one lifetime. But a heckuva ride. Hope it helped you to hear it in my own words.
