An Internet Dating Saga.....

I’ll preface this by saying that I am anti-social.

I cannot meet men in the real world, and when I do, they’re the obviously queer ones that I cannot stomach. So, I meet suitors on here(the internet in general). It’s been a mixed bag of weirdoes, psychos and just plain sweethearts that I couldn’t live without. There is such a stigma to having met a suitor over the cable lines, though. How does one get around that?

What the hell is wrong with everyone? I have endeavored to become more sociable and get out to date, but every time I do, I am reminded of why I favor a cloistered lifestyle.

I went on a Shlomo ride with a boy who seemed pleasant enough in phone conversation, a little lispy, but what can you do, right? He works at (and drives) Mercedes and I thought “great! A tall, thin, dark haired Mercedes boy! Surely if we aren’t compatible, he’ll make a good friend.�

He was no taller than I (5’9) and was quite rotund upon meeting him in the flesh. He had claimed to be 6’2 and 170 pounds. His home smelled of pet urine and was not clean. So I lit a cigarette knowing I was sure to be shooed outside, sure enough… I thought of running, I thought of texting Jilly to call and give me an out, but I refrained, thinking that it would be rude.

On the ride, he kept touching me and I gave him every nonverbal hint that it was making me uncomfortable, but he did not accept that. So I actually had to tell him. Not cool, ya’ll, so not cool…

I just don’t know how to meet normal people. I don’t know that it is polite to ask someone if their home is clean, safe or free of verminous creatures. There are so many degrees to gauge and it simply is not possible without experiencing someone’s space in reality. It is not possible to know by telephone conversation if someone has lied about every facet of themselves.

Have any of youall tried to wade through this tumultuous sea of rejects to find those rejects that best compliment your own personality? Have you been successful? I generally still hold the belief that normal people do use the internet and normal people do meet friends and suitors there, but I cannot but help to think that maybe I am very wrong in thinking this.

I’ve never yet had to pull out the judo chop, but I came dangerously close in this instance. I do not so much worry about having to defend myself because I can and will, but this exchange has made me think critically about this whole situation. I just don’t know where else to look. I cannot possibly see myself setting foot into a gay disco club, and who can tell which art students at school are gay and which are just effeminate heterosexuals?

I think for now, I am done turning over rocks. What have youall to say?[:)]

Try a Mercedes-Benz, but not a 201,202 or 203, your wife may have a hard time getting through your trailer door-- but never so hard a time as to attempt closing the door of a compact class car on her fat, fat ass.

Just enjoy whatever life brings your way. I have done the gay bars, one nighters, intenet and every other way of looking for a man. Maybe I am getting wiser with age (over 40), but now I find myself not looking for a relationship (after many in the past 20 years). For me being single is better than all the drama of dating.

Neon, it's a needle in a haystack for most everyone. You just keep looking.

However, in this instance, the misrepresentation was so egregious that you shoulda turned around the minute you saw him. People like that need a few lessons.

Normal people use the Internet as a means to attain information, merchandise, and income. Normal people do not use the Internet as a substitute for a social life. You can't just open someone's book of life on the Internet and jump in and see what you get. You'd be much better off meeting people by more conventional means. That includes turning your computer off and actually going outside to live your life. You're far too young to take such a convoluted path...

RE: An Internet Dating Saga.....

ya know, mars, i did think the same thing, but at that point i thought about the friendship route, because who couldnt use more of those, ya know?

it was when he blatantly disregarded my comfort and personal space that i realized he wasnt worthy of befriending.

the worst part that i forgot to mention was whenever i gave him a follow-up call the next day(its only polite-- even if you dont intend on seeing them again, guys.....) he had mentioned that he had gotten lucky with someone else! hahahaha *click*

next? [:p]

Stop being anti-social. You can learn alot from strangers. Everyone brings something to the table. Get out there and open your mind, smile real big, and take in all your senses can stand. You'll feel better in the long run too!

PS Young fags are vicious. Get away from them and the scene and you will be better off.

I seriously doubt he got lucky. This lying tub of lard was just angry that you didn't let him hit on you.

Now why call someone again when you have no intention of seeing him? I don't think that's polite, I think it's either confusing or leading him on. My 2¢
