Interesting... and mysterious!
5 June 2013 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

Interesting (and amusing) episode. I just wish Pete's explanation of his date had taken place in the locker room so that the rest of the guys could have heard it. :-p Anyway, the outcome was certainly left open to interpretation. One of my theories is that the girl was turned off when Pete became exactly what she asked for: a proper date. Dinner, a show (movie?), dancing... a routine, run-of-the-mill, everyday date. In other words, Pete was a perfect gentleman and, contrary to her expectations, nothing exciting happened. It would be a classic case of getting what you say you want, and not finding it as interesting as you thought it would be.

Another option is similar in theory, but different: Pete did indeed 'give her what she wanted'-- as in, EVERYTHING she wanted. And once she got it (ha!) she was satisfied (ha ha!) and therefore done with him. Again, once she got what she wanted, she no longer wanted it.

Either way, it was probably clear at the end of the evening (or sometime the next morning, whenever the date ended) that she had already lost interest.
