My latest marriage proposal and other dating horror stories from the recent past
Those of you who have done the online dating thing…surely you have
also experienced the regular "email marriage proposals", right? I would
once in a while get long emails of a guy's desire to marry someone from
America, or looking for the perfect mate and knowing immediately from
your profile – that you are the one for them. They then
ask if you are interested in marriage… uhmmm, yeah, before they even
meet you or have a phone conversation!!
So these things
shouldn't surprise me, since I have done online dating and have
experience with this. In addition, I wasn't surprised to get an instant
message the other day from someone who still had my Hotmail email
address from a contact we had made many months ago. Now, I knew we must
have spoken briefly many months ago on a dating site, but I didn't even
remember him; till he sent me his photo…and we had never went out. But
before thirty minutes were up, he was instant messaging me…. "Do you
believe in online marriage?" Yeah, I immediately 'blocked' him from
sending any further messages without reply.
Ok, let's get
real here. Surely, he was kidding… but I don't waste my time to find
out because seriously who has time and because of a few other pretty
unrealistic 'expectations' of sort that have taken place in my recent
dating experience. One such experience was just a few weeks ago and I
emailed a friend of mine about it…. So I saved the email following that
week and will share it here as part of my blog entry.
This guy I saw Saturday night got mad and wouldn't tell me why. We went out on one date that night (a first date, mind you) and he then called me Saturday night later after I got home (at which time we talked) and
again Sunday, etc. ... finally I started getting a little annoyed...
but called him back on Tuesday and it was during this conversation he
said, "So where is this going?" Read more of this blog.....
