Dating Adventures Vol. 1

I was at the liquor store a few weeks ago and apparently a guy I went on a date with in November works there. He said he wold call me and never did. I was okay with that because there wasn't really a connection.  He makes a point to come over and apologize for not calling me. Really dude? It's been like 3 months, totally not even on my radar.

I recently joined a new online dating site. I've been getting messages left and right though not many are promising. This one guy decided to IM me and call me rude and then proceeded to block me because I didn't respond quickly enough to his message. It wasn't even 24 hours later.

It's weird to me when you know people in real life and then see their online dating profile. What's even weirder is to see someone's profile that you DON'T know and then run in to them in public. They don't know who you are but you know that they enjoy the farmer's market and long walks. This has happened to me twice in the last month and while it's amusing it also feels a little creepy.

It's IS creepy, isn't it! The online system is fatally flawed because you only get to see what they want you to see about themselves. They present this polished beautiful version of themselves that sometimes isn't anything like who they really are. Granted this happens when you meet someone in person, to some degree, but online ALL you see is the good. Unfortunately that "good" is masking all kinds of crazy.

Totally happened to me @ a derby car wash, no less.
