Sometimes my shocking lack of popular-culture knowledge gets me into really bad situations. I met a guy on Match. We chatted back and forth online for a week or so, set a date for a Friday night, and shared a couple of phone calls, during the last of which he told me he was “a gigolo. First date night arrived, and he showed up at my door dressed in weird, scary clown-covered clothes, open can of cheap beer in hand, and he was so jumpy I thought he had the cops after him. He mumbled what I thought was a greeting, slurped down his beer, crushed the can on his head and pushed past me to the kitchen, where he proceeded to fish through my fridge for another beer. Yeah — there are “bad boys,” and then there was this guy. He complained loudly about the bottle of local microbrew he found, using a pejorative term for homosexuals to describe it, but kept sucking it down and pacing around doing air guitar. In my usual dulcet manner I asked him if I could get him anything to make his visit more comfortable. He joked that his meth intake was a good diet plan, and asked if I was ready to go to the concert that I didn’t know we going to — Insane Clown Posse — explaining that it was hard to meet girls who were “down with the clown. I should have known what a juggalo was, but now I’m forever sorry that I found out.

I was meeting a date for the first time; we had previously exchanged emails through Match. He worked at a college downtown, and we agreed to meet there after work, and go for a drink. I drove down in plenty of time and then went to the building where I thought we had designated to meet.

I did once behave unforgivably on a first date. When the production ended and we all went out to celebrate, I cornered said boy in a club and gave him a good snog. Unfortunately, the next day, at our very first lunch date, I discovered that he was nothing like his on stage character. I appreciate that only an idiot would not have foreseen this.
I am both troll and idiot. At any rate, in a panic, half way through lunch I stood up and told him I had suddenly remembered I was still in love with my ex-boyfriend.
The next week, he messaged me and asked if I wanted to get together again this weekend.

Posted on April 7, by blogqueendiane A drink at a beach bar and a moonlit walk on the beach. Met a guy from my town online years ago — and we met for a first date at a well-known bar near the local beach. We sat and had one drink, then he suggested going for a walk on the beach. It was a warm night and things had gone fine up til then, so we walked a block over to the beach and took off along the shoreline. Hyde pretty quickly, once we were out of sight of anyone else. He was very, very… aggressive.
But fending him off was only part of the horror of the evening. At one point, a picturesque log that had washed up on the sand blocked our path along the waterline. He suggested we sit there a while. I was wearing a short denim skirt and nothing on my legs while we sat and talked.

I use a free site that is available world wide called Plenty Of Fish. I meet people who are friends online as well.

Did you really pee on my bathroom floor? So we met at a train station Met a great guy on a dating website; tall, witty, smart, fun and a hell of a kisser. The relationship status portion of his online profile indicated that he was single. Prior to our first date, he disclosed to me that he lived with a roommate.

Wisdom has spoken in the form of our Brinny. I hated online dating, but it had a sort of addictive quality to it, so for a period of my life I’d go for a few weeks here and there. That’s all I could take at one time, a week or two. I started in thinking I was an attractive, godly, fun, talented, caring person with a lot to offer.
But thanks to my online “brothers,” I spent quite a bit of time thinking I must be perhaps the most ghastly thing that ever walked. The good news is that the Lord picked me up and dusted me off. I now realize it wasn’t me. The concept of online dating makes sense on paper. It’s too easy when a person is not right in front of you to treat them like a commodity. I don’t know this for sure, but I walked away from that nasty little period of my life thinking that guys and perhaps women as well online, for the most part, are looking for a sort of perfection that does not exist, “If I’m paying money to find a women, she better be Hmmm, was it the guy who told me I was going to hell because I worship Jesus and should only worship God; Or the guy who when I mentioned I was going to a great Beth Moore Bible study, rather than thinking it was great that I choose to study and be inspired by the Bible, immediately went on attack, and asked “Does she teach men!?!
