I know I’ve written many times before about the weird and wild world of online dating. I’ve written about the “stranger danger” Spidey sense that hits when you decide to meet a stranger in person for the first time. I’ve written about the unflattering photos of men way past their prime flaunting their topless torsos […]
Can I just begin this by saying that I feel really bad that I don’t pay much attention to this category. I created the “Single in a small city”category and then about a month later I met my now partner of roughly over two years. I always feel funny about writing being single in any form, when I’m not. However, I still love hearing about other people’s dating stories and I absolutely adore the tv show “First Dates” It’s hilarious! I think that I’ve only be right about one couple so far and I so happy for them that they were still dating after the show.
The above post is from Musings from a Tangled Mind and it’s really hilarious post, it is really great and shows what kind of odd balls there are still out there. Online dating seems to be the thing to do these days.
I met my current partner through online dating and it worked for me. I think it worked for me, I think though that it worked for me because I was “sensible” about it. I met him for the first time in a public place, I made sure I actually had an excuse to leave (if it was turning out to be horrible) and never gave out any personal information!
However, my current partner was not the first person that I met on a date from online dating, and I actually didn’t want to meet the guy. It was more at my mother’s instance. Always listen to your gut instincts! On the one and only date I went on with the other guy, it was really uncomfortable. I already didn’t want to meet him before the date. He insisted on paying for my dinner, but he kept saying how he did it. Then he insisted on dropping me off home, I was not about to let him know where I lived! Then when I convinced him to not drop me home, he left me outside by myself, on a dark street, while I waited for a taxi.
