Internet dating sad stories
This was around 18 months ago, and he still messages me from time to time with a "hey," or my favourite, "I miss you." Met a guy who seemed to be decent.
We went to see a movie, and he kept talking about my feet — how "beautiful and sexy" he thought they were. " Later, during the movie, he asked if he could suck on my toes. I excused myself to go to the restroom and just walked straight out the door and left him in the theater.
Dating apps: Can't live with them, can't live without them.
But seriously, sometimes things go so wrong—like endless date with a cringe-worthy guy wrong—that you can't help but wonder why you're on the app in the first place.
A year later, I get a call from Alex, asking if he can travel cross-country to visit me, stay in my house, and meet my parents. " -Amanda, 23"I was using the same opening line on Bumble for every guy—' You can only listen to one song for the rest of your life. '—when one of them (we'll call him Alan) replied, ' Does that line actually work for you?
' Then another replied, ' What Alan said.' Apparently, they were friends who happened to be together when I messaged them both the same thing!
I went for a drink with a guy I had been chatting with online.
He seemed pretty normal (good job, intelligent, funny).
He said 'I thought you ditched me,' and then he started getting choked up and actually started crying!
On my way out, I was yanked aside for questioning by police officers on suspicion of prostitution.
Flushed and wasted, with my panties stuffed in my coat pocket, I did my best to explain that I was just talkingwith my "friend" in the bathroom.
I said, "Definitely not." A few minutes later he dropped something on the floor, and while retrieving it tried to put the toes of my crossed legs in his mouth. I met a guy on Ok Cupid, and we hit it off pretty well.
After we hung out a few times, he came over to my place with a bottle of wine and a movie.
So the next time you go on a seriously awful date you'll know that you're not alone.
