Modern dating is a too often a cesspit of confidence-knocking awkward mismatches.
And yet, despite us all knowing this, it seems some people are out to make the interactions as uncomfortable and mortifying as possible.
Case in point, this Time Out New York blind date write-up which is making the rounds online today thanks to Billy, who has the manners and grace of a man raised by wolves.

Alyssa, like a normal human by contrast writes: "I didn't want to be that girl who's late, and I was trying really hard, but I was about three minutes late. He stood up, and we hugged. He was really nice and charming."
Read on in horror for the rest of the date
Alyssa: "He's an actor, and that's totally uncharted territory for me. I like a really stable job in a significant other. But the conversation was very friendly. He did a lot of the talking."
Billy: "Whether I was attracted to her or not, I still had to sit there for two hours and be a gentleman. We had a nice conversation. She complimented me many times."
Alyssa: "A couple of times he told me not to be nervous. I wasn't nervous, but that made me second-guess myself and get in my head. And then the conversation stalled."
Billy: "She ordered her filet mignon well done. The waiter just looked at me, and I looked at the waiter. I was like, 'Live your life, but this is not Outback Steakhouse, girl.' "
Alyssa: "We got a little ice cream afterward, which was awesome. We both gabbed about the fact that we really respect a place that will give you a macaron with your ice cream."
Billy: "I was trying to be nice and end the date, but the waiter was like, 'Do you want some ice cream?' and she was like, 'Yay! Ice cream!' So that was another 20 minutes."
Alyssa: ♥♥♥ "We left the restaurant, walked to the subway and said goodbye. I'm really glad that I met him; he was really interesting and cool. But I got more of a friend vibe."
Billy: ♥ "There was nothing drawing me in. She was very sweet, always smiling, always bubbly. But I feel like I took two hours of my time and kind of just burned it."
A few people have (understandably) flayed this douchebag alive. Even Time Out couldn't resist...
And he wonders why he's undateable. Ew.— KOB (@KOB8) June 29, 2017
Have you seen his insta... oh damn he made it private- was all faux-candids with "James bond" hashtags. I cringed so hard I got a neck cramp pic.twitter.com/ZlY0kDAl23— Kat (@rasberet) June 29, 2017
In one way or another, don't we all know a "Billy, actor, living on the Upper East Side" who "does a lot of the talking"?
