Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Ben called us up looking for help during the Second Date Update because he thinks his date will disappoint his family. Ben met Renee online and he was really excited to go out on date with her.

He offered to pick up at her house, which he did, but on the way to the date he had to make a pit stop. He had drop off some keys at his dad’s house, but she was cool with doing that. Luckily his dad’s house was on the way.

They ended going to a wine bar and he told us that the conversation was great. He also said that he was on his best first date behavior. He had a great time on the date and also thought that Renee had a great time.

Ben doesn’t sound too confident about the date, but he can’t think of anything that happened on the date. He really wants to see her again, but can’t understand why she isn’t responding to his calls and texts. When he dropped her off at her house he told her he wanted to she her again and she said sure. There was a hug, but no kiss.

When we got Renee on the phone she told us why she isn’t getting back to Ben. It all started before the got to the wine bar and it happened during the quick pit stop they made. It wasn’t as quick as he had mentioned and she tells us what happened.

Ben thinks his date will disappoint his family, but why was his family involved? Listen to what happened below.

We know dating is tough and sometimes it can be crazy and that is why Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe is there to help. Every weekday morning at 7:15 we help out to see if we can get them to have a second date. We also find out what happened on the date to cause the person not to call back.
