Damn, is THAT why I can never get a second date?

'Cause I just let 'em die.

"doctors were unable to find the exact cause of the man's episode"  "at the Cheesecake Factory"

Wow -- All that education and those doctors can't see the obvious cause?

He was trying to ghost her and failed.

"He contacted me and we talked for two weeks," Hall tells PEOPLE of her date, a man in his 50s who wishes to remain unnamed while he's recovering.

Translation: He's married.
 
2017-04-19 05:29:37 PM  
Ahhh, the old "Choke and collapse to get out of paying" trick.
 
2017-04-19 05:46:23 PM  
uhhh, plenty of fish isn't for those kind of dates.
 
2017-04-19 05:46:29 PM  
meh. requiring your date to save your life on the first date comes off as a bit needy to me.
 
2017-04-19 05:49:11 PM  
She got a second date and didn't even have to put out to get it.
 
2017-04-19 05:49:57 PM  
Hall and Bartholomew have created a GoFundMe page to help their new friend defray medical costs that insurance will not cover.

Why is this a thing now?

Disgusting.

Yeah. I don't think there's much to do at the Cheesecake Factory except choke or have a heart attack.

And Salmon would know.

Because medical costs are skyrocketing.

Disgusting.

Absolutely. Thanks, Obama.

Came in here to say this.

Dude is thinking "oh shiat how am I going to get out of this?" Probably wishes she'd have let him die.

Who hasn't faked a medical emergency to get out of a bad date?
 
2017-04-19 06:04:42 PM  
My latest internet fetish is 'Ask Reddit'. Last night I was reading about weird dates. I guess she can post a thread there now.

If CPR is the only way you get women to lock lips with you, you might want to try something less desperate.
 
2017-04-19 06:09:10 PM  
After a series of tests, doctors were unable to find the exact cause of the man's episode.

Too many blood capsules?

farkingismybusiness: Who hasn't faked a medical emergency to get out of a bad date?


I was thinking maybe he wanted to guarantee at least a kiss sometime during the date.
 
2017-04-19 06:10:19 PM  
On his death bed hoping the girl who saved his life isn't fat.

Dancin_In_Anson: "He contacted me and we talked for two weeks," Hall tells PEOPLE of her date, a man in his 50s who wishes to remain unnamed while he's recovering.

Translation: He's married.

"He asked for a second date in the hospital," Hall says. "I was extremely honored. What means the most to me is that he works on his health and wellness right now."


Further translation, "Second date? No way in hell, he's defective. But I did save his life, so I have to at least act like I care about his life until I can let him down without seeming heartless."
 
2017-04-19 06:18:07 PM  
Typical.  Woman gets on handsy with a guy with no heart, while nice men can't get anything.
 
2017-04-19 06:22:43 PM  
If only David Carradine's date had also known CPR...

Meanwhile, Bill O'Reilly is treated like some kind of criminal.

So she did suck the pork chop bone out of his throat? Most likely wears it as a necklace now, sweet.

Salmon: uhhh, plenty of fish isn't for those kind of dates.


Yeah, that's what I thought. I've got a buddy that gets laid 2 or 3 times a week off of that site. They're not all exactly winners, either.
 
2017-04-19 06:35:56 PM  
Bullshiat. They cooked up this story to draw attention to their Go Fund Me page to scam people out of money.

/cynic
 
2017-04-19 06:36:18 PM  
Poor guy was trying to get out of the first date, it backfired, and to cover his tracks he had to ask her on a second date.

Nah it's just a touch of consumption!

When I was 23 I took a woman in her 40s out on a date. She kinda found it annoying that a college girl about the same age as her son was the best she could do.
 
2017-04-19 06:47:53 PM  
Hate to be a wet blanket but chest compressions don't "restart" a heart.  They just keep blood flowing a bit until a defibrillator can be applied.

She didn't save his life, but it is still good that she tried.

LordOfThePings: If only David Carradine's date had also known CPR...


Can ropes learn CPR?

Ugh I feel dirty after that one. I'll see myself out.

"After a series of tests, doctors were unable to find the exact cause of the man's episode. He has since been released from the hospital"

Also known as, your HMO won't pay for additional tests.  Come back if more blood spews from your mouth
 
2017-04-19 06:56:48 PM  
Staying 45 mins past tabbing out at a restaurant? Assholes.
 
2017-04-19 07:02:25 PM  
Well, how about that, usually when my home town makes Fark it's so embarrassing I just lurk and don't dare admit I'm from here... what a refreshingly positive Joplin Mo. story.

/Blind squirrel, nut, occasionally, etc.
 
2017-04-19 07:11:53 PM  
I don't mean to brag guys but by the end of the date she was on top of me bouncing up and down really working up a sweat. Just when I thought I couldn't take anymore another woman joined it. A short time later I had to go to the hospital from all the excitement.
 
2017-04-19 07:23:03 PM  
So last week, literally. Did all the farkmins go on vacay at the same time?

Why are we greening articles on stale stories?

Why no green on Sig Hanson having to retire?

/guess I should be thankful The Kardashians are silent

That is so much more sad for you than you think it is for her.
 
2017-04-19 07:56:26 PM  
If I were her, I'd dump him.
His heart just isn't in it.

/too soon?
 
2017-04-19 08:15:36 PM  
Yes.  It is disgusting that insurance won't cover common situations that can happen to anyone.

Ha ha. I get what you're implying, but I'm happily married. But yeah, alot of his "dates" are late night, and begin and end in a parking lot somewhere. High class.

Older women can be great teachers in bed.  Speaking from experience.

This is now an impossible relationship for the guy. He can no longer say "no" to anything she asks for or it'll be "I saved your life and you can't even do XXX for me?"
 
2017-04-20 02:36:13 PM  
I'd ask her on a second date even if she didn't save my life.
