Me me! I had a guy reveal to me he was a big musical theatre buff (okay cool) but then to prove it he decided to belt out the opening song from Le Mis right in the ice cream parlor! At least we weren’t at dinner anymore and it wasn’t busy? I was still pretty shocked and like what..are..you..doing…!!?? (Without wanting to offend him…)

I was on a date with a cocky marine pilot once.  He told me the only reason I would get into law school was because I was a woman and they needed women to meet quotas.  Ugh.

I had a first date with this guy and we agreed to meet at the restaurant where we were going to have dinner. Met him online, had never seen him before in my life and when I got out of my car he walked right up to me, dipped me and kissed me HARD without even a hello. I got right back in my car and sped far far away!

My first and only date with one guy involved him beating me over the head with his political beliefs and him not dropping it when I wouldn’t agree with him on certain things. It was so romantic.

ETA: Did I mention this was on a Valentine’s day?

First date after the first time meeting a guy online.. Meet at a coffee house and he tells me he can see me being a SAHM for our future children, how he avoids his friends Gfs/wives so they won’t be tempted to cheat with him, and that he wants go become a virgin again and stay that way til marriage and asked if I was okay. I’m not one for confrontation so I just carried out the date like normal and let him down a couple days later when he asked me out again. Turns out he was confident and found my mom on Facebook to ask her what kind of flowers I like to surprise me. My mom ignored the message from him, per my request. This guy would not take no for an answer and kept insisting I give him more chances, then wanted to stay friends and see what happened… So much weirdness.

RedHeadKel:  LOL, nope, but I didn’t go out with him again.  Not to mention my college grades and LSAT score fell firmly without the admission criteria of my school….LOL….

Yes!!! (Might I add there are triggers in my story.)

I always forget that I had a terrible (and luckily only) blind date with a high school friend’s “friend” (which I later found out she had met him on Myspace and that’s how they became friends, wtf). I actually thought this guy was gay when I first met him by his mannerisms and way of speaking, but apparently he wasn’t because he had expressed interest in me which is why my friend begged me to give him a try. Anyway, I agreed to go on a date with him. I asked him to pick me up at a park because I didn’t want a stranger picking me up at my house.

When he got there I entered his car and he goes, “Remember how I said we were going to the movies and then to dinner? Yeah, no.” I FREAKED out. I go, ‘omg, this guy is a rapist, why did I agree to this?!’. He then says, “We should do it the right way, dinner and then a movie.” I felt somewhat relieved, but then I realized this guy was so damn cheesy when he gave me a single fake rose, because “a rose that won’t die is most beautiful” or some bullshit. We had dinner, it was so awkward. We then went to the movie theater (I forgot what we saw), and at the end I felt my face getting oily so I was wiping my cardigan against my nose, and he was just like “aw, you’re crying?!” and proceeded to hold my hand. Um, yeah, no. Finally, he drove me back to where he picked me up. On the way he proceeded to say I had the most beautiful laugh (I was uncomfortable the entire time, so my laugh wasn’t sincere, it was nervous), and that I was so beautiful. But then he told me he was undocumented and was working illegably at a bar, and had a dream of becoming a soccer scar. Yeah, that was a big deal breaker.

Loooooong after that date, we kept in contact through text and Facebook. I didn’t have the heart to say that I was no longer interested. But then suddenly he stopped messaging me for about two weeks, I was relieved, thinking he was done too. Well, he wasn’t. I got a Facebook message out of the blue saying that he was sorry for not talking to me for those past few weeks, that he tried committing suicide,  was in acoma, and wanted to see me over ice cream to “talk” more about this. Um, WHAT. I didn’t respond. I didn’t know what to think. A month or so later he messaged me again, saying he was shot, and, again, wanted to talk over ice cream. But this time he proceeded to say that he missed me, he felt a connection, that I was the most beautiful woman ever, and that this was true love. I freaked out. I never responded again, and he stopped until a year after that to say “Merry Christmas”, but that was years ago.

 

I told myself I would never go on a blind date again or date someone that I wasn’t friends first with. There are a lot of crazies in the world.

I asked a guy from my church to be my date for the prom, he agreed and I told him before the prom that I wanted to go to a restaurant. On the night of the prom he told me we weren’t going to a restaurant because he already ate before going out with me. My mom always said how upset she was with the way he treated me because I looked so nice and I had spent my own money on a dress and pictures. I ended up throwing the pictures away because of the memories of that night. I was so happy when I finally had closure just a few weeks ago when I saw his sister and told her I met a wonderful different man I was engaged to. I will not be sending her, her brother or any member of their family a wedding invitation.

OMG I gave online dating a try, and I have a few real winners (both different guys). Here are the two that first come to mind:

1. On a first date asked if I’d go to tanning beds with him, if I became his girlfriend. Then told me he may be moving across the country in a month or two, would I want to come? (Thanks, but no thanks)

2. Guy 2 worked for a swag company. Brought me a “loot bag” of branded pens on the first date. At the end of the night when I said I didn’t really want to bring a explain to my family why I was bringing a giant bag of pens home, he parked and tried to invite himself in so he could explain it to them.

RedHeadKel:  it took a while for him to stop contacting me. I dated a guy from the site for a ~6 months and when we broke up I went back…. well when someone views your page it tells you who… The creep looked at mine again!!! Glad that ordeal is over! Haha
