Misrepresenative

This man said he was 42 in his profile, athletic and self employed . We talked via email for about a week and then by phone. We arranged to meet at a local diner. As I sat waiting, I observed a poor older man struggling with his walker. I thought, “poor guy can barely move.” Well imagine my horror when the old guy turned out to be my date! He tripped into the diner looked my way, smiled and called out, “there’s my girl!” OMG the only saving grace is I figure onlookers assumed I was his daughter. It turns out his pictures had been taken back in the eighties and he recently had both hips replaced!!! I informed him I could not stay on the date as he totally misrepresented himself. I wished him luck, got up and left. Later, he texted me and told me he was better off not seeing a “superficial bitch” like me.

I was visiting a friend in New York City who suggested that I go out on a blind date with one of his coworkers. He didn’t tell me much about her, except that her name was Marissa and she was average height, blonde, and attractive. Being that she was interested in the same things as me, I didn’t really think to ask for defining features: I was just so excited to go out on a date after being single for so long. I arrived at the bar my friend told me about and was looking around. Every girl there was blonde and seemed to make eye contact with me, so I kept saying, “Are you Marissa?” They all kept rolling their eyes and walking away from me. Finally, this girl said, “Yes, I am. I’ve been waiting!” She was cute, so I offered to buy her a beer and we got to chatting. Not even five minutes later, this huge football player looking guy taps me on my shoulder. “That’s my girl,” he yells. I look at him, and then at Marissa, and then back at him. I said, “No, we’re on a date.” He looked at her and said, “Samantha, you’re seeing this guy behind my back?” I realized this strange girl was not my blind date at all, but someone milking me for a drink. Then the linebacker threw a punch and I was on the bar floor in moments. Just as the bartender kicked me and the other guy out, I clutched a bloody nose and saw a very attractive looking woman avoid my eye. I later found out that was, in fact, my blind date. Needless to say, she never got in touch with me for another try.

One Love

My first real job I was sent down to Florida for training with another new hire. I sort of knew him, but not well. I had never been in a relationship before and I was always apprehensive about opening up to a man.That week we became great friends, we had complimentary senses of humor, our conversations were so easy, and he was really cute. On one of our last nights in Florida we were drinking and ended up making out and he spent the night. The next morning wasn’t awkward at all and we spent the rest of our nights in Florida together. When we got back up to Massachusetts we continued to see each other until we started our new job and he stopped returning my calls. Also in the employee room he would talk very openly about his most recent conquests in front of me. I can take a hint so I stopped trying to contact him. About a week later he called to make plans with me for that Saturday night. I waited at home all night for him to call me. He stood me up. I found out the next day that he had been telling everyone that we had slept together and that I had a boyfriend at the time (both not true).

Last year, my sorority threw a Saddie Hawkings dance. I had been crushing on this guy for the past couple years and decided that this way my chance. I walked up to him and asked if he wanted to go to the dance with me. He said no because he had a big soccer game to play in on that night. I was a little upset but I knew it wasn’t his fault. The night of the dance, I saw him across the room and decided to go and ask him for a dance thinking he just go here after the soccer game. I go up and ask for the dance and get ready to calm my nerves so the dance would be smooth. He looked me dead in the eyes and said “I don’t think you get it. Leave me alone.”

Some guy I had a crush on all 4 years of high school finally asked me out on a date. I was so excited, I was telling friends and family about the good news, and losing sleep over it every night from the excitement! We talked for a week, until it was the night of our date. We planned out that he was going to pick me up at 8, and we would go for a dinner and a movie. I was looking very forward to this because I have liked this guy for so long. So we went out to a very fancy restaurant, the date was going great! I couldnt of asked for it to go any better! We were at the restaurant for about an hour before his phone rang off the hook! Every time he answered the call, and it sounded like he was fighting with his mom or something. I thought it was very rude he would even answer the phone during our date, let alone fight with someone for 25 minutes right in front of me! Anyway, so after we got done eating we left and we were on our way to the movie. His phone rang about 3 more times and he ignored it. I was extremely surprised when we did not pull into the movies, but we pulled into some random drive way that I didn’t even know. A girl our age came out and him and her started fighting, and she looked at me and got me involved by calling me very rude names, saying I was trying to take her boyfriend! I asked him what was going on and it turned out that was his girlfriend, and he asked me out on a date to get her jealous because they were fighting! I had to get my own ride home from her house.

Cheats

My Best friend in the world knew that we both had a thing for each other, But we hid it from everyone by covering it up with having a significant other of our own. We still talked and hung out, plus we are both DJ’s and we had many gigs together. Until one strange day last January, My Significant other at the time had left some information on my laptop that made me suspect he was cheating on me. I was with my best friend, getting ready for a gig and i called him. I asked him if it was true and he told me it was. Not even ten minutes later, My best friends Girlfriend told him that she was also cheating on him. Me and My Best friend/current boyfriend have been together a year now. Thank you cheating losers for bringing us together!

Prom?

When I was a junior in high school, I had a crush on one of my close girl friends. She was very smart, funny, and we had been friends for a while. After starting to talk to her more and flirting with her, I couldn’t hide my true feelings any longer. I asked her out to prom to go as “just friends” so that neither of us would go dateless and we could spend the night together and have fun. She told me that she did not think that it was a good idea because she did not want to give others the wrong impression of us and did not want to lead me on. I ended up telling her how I really felt about her and my feelings, but she told me she did not feel the same way. She wanted to remain friends, but she did not feel the same way about me. She also told me she did not want to date in high school because people move away, which I told her I understood. After a couple weeks, I was getting over her when I found out that she had started dating one of her other close guy friends. I was torn because although she was my friend and I cared for her, she told me she did not want to be dating anyone and then ended up dating someone. Although she is still my friend, I felt betrayed by her and decided not to get involved with her romantically anymore because she did not feel for me like I felt for her. She is a nice girl, but she didn’t think we were made to be together.

Walmart Dating

I started talking to this guy through a popular online dating site and everything was going great. He was cute and had a great personality. We talked on the phone and agreed to meet up at Walmart before going out somewhere else. I got to Walmart before him and was about to leave when he finally showed up. He looked nothing like his photograph, about 50 lbs more and a lot less hair. He suggested we walk around the store for a little and decide where to go. I agreed and we walked around Walmart for the next 20 minutes as he told me random facts about himself and made creepy passes at me. When we got outside the store, I was ready to go home, but he wanted to do something else. He told me he didn’t have any money though, and suggested that we go parking instead. I told him that I was too tired to go anywhere and left. Never to contact him again.

I once met a guy on a social networking website when I was somewhat desperate and lonely after a break up from my 3 year relationship with an ex boyfriend. This guy seemed amazing! We had so many things in common. He had the same awesome sense of humor as myself and really did make me laugh. Finally, after begging for awhile, he emailed me a picture of himself. He looked so cute, dressed up in some silly 1900’s gangster costume in a sepia posed picture. He said it was an old Halloween pic someone took of him. As we were getting closer to meeting, though, some things were beginning to make very little sense. He said he was my age, 27, but he sounded on the phone like a guy in his forties. Finally, he admitted the picture from Halloween wasn’t even himself. Once I told him how I felt about that, he started making some crazy talk about his ex wife and not being in control and other random things. Before we even established our first date, this faux 40 year old embittered man lied to me, sobbed into the phone, and generally put me off dating for a very long time. I still haven’t attempted it since then.

The Creepy Doctor

I guess my first mistake was meeting a guy on myspace. You live and learn. 5’10” turned out to be 5’4″ with lifts in his shoes and the thick curly hair from his 10 year old picture must have fallen out of his head and multiplied on the visible parts of his body. He literally had a sweater growing out of his t shirt. Looks aren’t everything but sadly the personality was not much better. He made a point of mentioning that he was a doctor repeatedly and that he drive a BMW. Bully for you but enough bragging. He made a big deal that he’d be buying the drinks, and I could “wink wink” (he actually said wink wink) pay him back later. He actually had the nerve to put his hand on my thigh after this. Now, I know, myspace, but my profile wasn’t racy in the least and stayed that I was a kindergarten teacher at a Catholic school so I don’t think I had this coming. I paid him back by excusing myself to the bathroom. I then excused myself all the way to my car and home. I blocked him from my account. Now I know never use myspace as a dating site.
