When you first join a dating website, it can get a bit overwhelming. I’m not trying to brag but I received a lot of emails all at once in the beginning. I can imagine a man sitting at his computer saying, “Oh! Fresh meat,” as he clicks on my profile. Thankfully there are less emails today.
I decided to finally meet one of the men that sent me an email. He started the email with calling me beautiful. Ha, yeah okay. I’m cute but don’t consider myself beautiful or gorgeous. Not unless I’m dolled up or something…. Anyway, I decided to check out his profile. He is a good looking man and fit. A guy that looks as good as that does not like a woman like me. I’m not trying to be negative, just realistic. He kept pressuring to meet me that night and finally I caved.
This is not my first rodeo so I picked a safe place to meet him–at a park. We agreed to go for a walk with my dog because she was going a little stir crazy. He parked near me and actually looked like his picture. From the pictures, it made it difficult to see that he was a smaller frame. He was about my height (5’4″) or little shorter. Which is fine, I’ve dated a guy shorter than me before.
We chat for a moment then he mentioned that he had to pick up his brother at the airport in an hour (wait, weren’t we supposed to be on a date of some sorts??). I played along like we never made plans. We chatted for a couple more minutes then he drove off. He said he would get a hold of me after he took his brother home. I thought to myself, ‘Wow, he must have been so repulsed by me that he decided to make an excuse to ditch our plans.’ I apologized to Storm of the change of plans (i.e no walk) and we headed home.
I was surprised when he texted me later that night asking if I wanted to meet back up. I told him no and that I would another time, even though I had no intentions on doing so. Around this time is when I had decided to text one of my best friends, Nicolioli (my nickname for her haha). She wanted to know details about the guy and our meet, which I happily gave her.
Then he asked me to send a picture of my chest to him and I said no. Next he asked to come over and cuddle. I laughed and told him that I knew what cuddling led to. He was getting PUSHY and wouldn’t back down. He wanted to meet and it had to be THAT night. It’s not good to assume things, but I think it’s safe to say that he just wanted a piece of ass. I sent him a text stating, ‘I’m still saying no. And the more you don’t take my answer, the more I wonder.’ That finally shut him up. Sure enough, a few hours later he texted again but I didn’t bother opening it.
So, nothing too crazy happened but it makes me wonder what else will be sent my way.
If I could suggest one piece of advice to men about online dating it would be this: Think about what you use for your profile pictures. Seriously. They say a lot (or not a lot) about you. And I’m sure there are some guys yucking it up with putting a funny pic of them in their golden eight choices that they have. More than likely women will think it’s stupid if you think it’s funny.
