Guys do some weird stuff to try to impress girls in bars

The other night while I was working a young couple came in and sat at my bar.  I say couple, but they definitely weren't yet a couple; it was probably their second or third date.  My guess is they'd already had a few drinks that evening somewhere else.  The girl ordered a water, and the guy a Jack and ginger.  After a few minutes he whipped out a deck of cards (to which one of the waitresses responded by asking me if I remembered the time two people played a game of Scrabble on the bar) and started showing her some tricks.

The funny thing is, it's not as if he just happened to have the cards on him.  Before he went out for the night he had to have thought something like "I'm going to bring this deck of cards on the date and do magic tricks, because that'll really make her like me."  The tricks went on for about 45 minutes, and the girl was loving them.  But the whole time she was drinking water, and he was on his 3rd or 4th cocktail.  Finally he flips over the 3 of hearts instead of the 3 of diamonds, and she figures out what's been going on the whole time; he's using a deck of marked cards.

Seriously guy?  Trying to impress her with magic is cheesy enough on it's own, but with fake magic?  That's just lame.  It was hard to tell whether he had actually planned on telling her or not.  She didn't really seem to care though; so I guess the message here is a girl is most likely going to like you or not, regardless of what kind of "game" you throw at her.
