Six Women are Inexplicably Upset When a Guy Schedules Them All on the Same Date

six dates 5

NY MagazineLisette Pylant turned 26 over the weekend. When her friends [introduced] her to a random guy in the bar — a normal-seeming dude named Justin. Justin bought Pylant a drink and the pair made plans for a follow-up date on Monday. …

When Pylant met Justin at the bar … things weren’t going great, exactly. “I wouldn’t say he was much of a feminist,” she said. He was also carrying a sparkly blue cane. “He told us he jumped down a flight of stairs ‘sober’ in, like, Atlantic City,” Pylant said. “He said to me [about the cane] ‘you know $23 at CVS and you can call yourself a pimp.’”

And then, at 6:15, Justin’s second date showed up.

Those “friends” he was meeting, as it turned out, were actually a second date Justin had scheduled. …

Six date 3

“At this point we’ve formed like a coalition,” she said. “We’re making fun of him and he’s trying to play it off like he didn’t triple-book himself, or really sextuple, book himself.” The three women headed to the second bar. …

“I waited for number four to stand up and I said ‘hi, I’m number five’ and he goes ‘oh no, you have been cut’ and made the hand motion,” Woody, date five, told Select All. …

After date five, Pylant ran into Justin on the street while she was making a phone call. “Look, I don’t want you think I’m an asshole,” he told her. “You’re the only one I wanted to get to know. You seem really great. I don’t want you to hate me.” Pylant said she wasn’t having any of it and asked him when date number six would be arriving. Justin told her she’d be arriving at 8. “I was kidding,” Pylant said. “I didn’t seriously think he’d have a sixth date.” …

As for the group of six, friendship forged in the fire of one of the worst date(s) of all time? “We’re making a ‘Sister Wives’ group chat and taking selfies and planning a brunch.

I don’t know if Justin is a feminist. I don’t know if a group friendship forged in the crucible of being invited to compete for Justin’s affections will last or not. And I’m not entirely sure if he did the right, moral and ethical thing. I just know that, by God, you’ve got to admire the man.

That is a prime example of a man living his Best Life. The smooth way he allowed Lysette’s friends to set them up. That second first impression, dropping a sparkly blue pimp cane on her as only a man with audacity, 23 bucks and a CVS rewards card can. Then establishing his dominance over the pride with that hand motion “oh no you’ve been cut” move.

And then the brilliant way he staggered the dates so that he was in complete control of the situation. Creating a Bachelor situation that only he was aware of. With him as bachelor, producer, director and Chris Harrison all in one. Your average man is lucky to line up any date on a Monday. It takes a true visionary and a world class swordsman to line up six at once and then mastermind it in such a way that he can select the one that most pleases him.

At first I had a problem with him apologizing to this chick and trying to win her back, because it seemed beneath a man of the world like him. But the more I think about it, the more I admire the move. It is a pure psychological mindfuck to put together a group of a half a dozen women and then quietly tell the first one she’s your favorite. A move he no doubt repeated five times to all the others. That is tearing down her emotional walls and storming her sexual castle like you read about.

Come to think of it, there’s not a chance this little anti-Justin coalition will last. The first time he asks one of them back out, she’ll come rushing back and they’ll tear each other apart trying to be his Number One. And to share him if they must. Men like Justin are rare. And 1/6th of him is more than enough for any woman.
