Last week I decided to reactivate one of my online dating profiles. One of my good friends tells me I should give up. You see the thing is I get bored and I get broke. Online dating provides me with a way to meet new people without spending money. Even when it is at its worst I still have an amusing story to provide to my readers and friends right?
Speaking of amusing stories, I have one that just happened today actually. I received a message from a guy on Saturday night, yet since I was out that night I didn't have a chance to respond until Sunday. As I quickly skimmed his profile I thought it seemed ok until I got to the bottom where it said he was interested in only casual sex. I then politely told him that I didn't want to waste his time because that wasn't going to happen. He then wrote me back saying he made a fake profile that night to show that people are fake and that he was about to shut down his account and if I was interested to call him. I should have seen this as a red flag.
I proceeded to send him a text message. And then I ended up chatting with him while I was on the way to meet my friend for lunch. I shouldn't really say it was chatting, however. This man basically talked about how all these dating sites are fake and that women say they want one thing and then act the opposite. Then he told me that he told me (without me asking by the way) about his horrible experiences dating women with kids and that he would never do it again as a result. Then he got into talking about his most recent ex. I am surprised he even got in a breath as much as he was talking. Luckily, my call dropped when I got to the restaurant and I told him I would call him later. He texted me back saying that he would call me back when he was done painting, this was at 2pm.
I then get a call from him at around 9pm. Since my two favorite shows were on (Drop Dead Diva and Devious Maids both on Lifetime) I did not answer the phone. I decided I would call him back when I could focus. It is worth noting that during our phone conversation previously he talked about girls not being honest because he would call on a Monday and the woman would not call back until Thursday. I told him that people are sometimes busy. I also said that with me sometimes I don't like to talk on the phone until I actually have time to have a real conversation.
I wake up this morning and see a message from him on the dating site saying that "it isn't going to work out and that he will delete my number."
I then proceeded to send him a scathing message saying that he shouldn't talk about ex's the first time he is talking to someone and that he should probably let them speak too. And if he gets huffy because I don't return his call in two hours that he has the issues and that he needs to examine himself. I also said that his behavior will turn off the good women out there because I am one and I was turned off.
Yeah, I never got a response after that. It is ok though. I guess I dodged a bullet with that nut bag!
***UPDATE**** So I woke up to go to the bathroom this morning and couldn't fall back asleep so I checked me email. I had a message from this guy. I will summarize because I was so pissed off I didn't want to curse him out. In hindsight I should have save it so you could see it word for word. Basically he said something like he is 8 years older than me and as a result he thinks differently than me. He knew it wouldn't work out while we talked on the phone. He also finished by saying that "my" generation is selfish, rude, and overweight. And he said that he is a leader and knows these things.
My online dating is on hiatus once again. lol
