Have You Ever Had a Blind Date Nightmare?

Today we’re going to try something a little bit different. In case you missed the memo HERE, NakedWithSocksOn.com isn’t just about me and my perspective. I’d like to believe I’ve built a little online community where we all get to talk/write about different things and share our experiences together. Well, since day one I’ve left the door open for any reader to take the reigns as a guest blogger for the day (at my discretion of course) and finally someone stepped up to the plate. A relatively new blogger by the name of Tiffany (read her blog HERE) submitted a hilarious story about a blind date nightmare called “My Date With Larry Lunchmeat” that she wanted to share with the NWSO fam. I’m sure some of y’all out there can relate. So Tiffany is a guest in my homepage for the day (I deserve a break for once, right?), treat her with the same respect you would me. I’ll speak my piece at the end…

 

“My Date with Larry Lunchmeat”

Once upon two Saturdays ago, I decided that I would visit one of the many social networking websites in which I am a member. What can I say? I was bored and was looking for a little cerebral stimulation.

Anywhooo, I was checkin’ my messages when what to my wondering eyes did appear? Why, it was the IM window telling me that some unsuspecting gentleman wanted a piece of my time right then and there. I noticed his picture and was neither impressed nor revolted. That could be a good thing, right? I mean, one doesn’t have to look like Reggie Bush in order to have decent, stimulating conversation, right? (Although that would be a MAJOR perk). I decided to go for it.

Our conversation started off basic: name, age, blah, blah, blah. You know, typical stuff. Nothing earth shattering. I decided to check out his profile page while we were in the heated throes of IMing. Larry (not his real name) had a few pictures available for a woman’s viewing pleasure. Since we lived in the same area, he asked me if I would like to accompany him out for that evening. Uh, don’t think so Mr. Eager McBeaver!

After a few more minutes I told him that I would have to bid him adieu. He revealed to me that he would like to continue the convo later on and he gave me his number. A couple of hours later, I decided to give Larry a buzz. We proceeded to dish on various subjects: kids, marriage, so on and so forth. I’m assuming by this time he was feeling a little more daring because he proceeded to ask me out for the night AGAIN. I mean, you got to give it to the guy. He was persistent, if nothing else. I thought “what the H-E-double hockey sticks? I’ll give it a shot.” What’s the worst that could happen? I could end up sliced and diced in a food processor since I’m about to go out with a man I barely know. But hey! There’s nothing like a potential crazed serial killer to add a little spice to the weekend! (Editor’s Note: NWSO shakes his head in disbelief).

After pouring over the cinema’s mundane selections we finally decided on one. Since I wasn’t crazy about the idea of this guy knowing where I lay my head at night, I decided to meet him outside of his home. As I am finally ready for this impromptu date, I curiously begin to wonder: “Is this guy going to be the same gentleman that I saw in those pics or will it end up being his cousin Jaheim from Philly?” Way to think positive girl! I arrive at Larry’s humble abode. My heart is pumping above the legal limit. I ring the doorbell…

(Jaws theme song playing in background)…

I fluff out my hair…

(Music louder now)…

Tapping my foot…

(He opens the door slowly)…

FINALLY!!! THE MOMENT WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!!

(Collective sigh).

I want to cry. I want to run back to my car. I’m even willing to tell this guy that I have a serious case of the Hershey squirts just to get out of this date. What’s the prob you ask? Let’s just say that he looks very similar to this fictitious name that I have given him. However, I decided to just go for it since: (a) I kinda wanted to see this movie anyway and wasn’t going to have to pay. (b) Was looking kinda cute with a side helping of scrumptious.

The ride to the theatre was pleasant enough while the sounds of Lil Wayne and Drake provided our background. In the middle of the flick, my date asked if he could hold my hand. C’mon dude, are you serious? I sucked in a serious gust of air and mumbled incoherently. Well, then he wants to lay his head all up on my shoulder! I’m like, “Sorry, Tito, but this isn’t that kind of party.” We headed back to the house so that I could get to my car, QUICKLY. By this time, I’ve had it. I did my charity work for the month. He had the conversational skills of a fichus plant. He was overly critical of my “dark” nail polish. Once the car stops, I almost twisted my ankle trying to get out. I think that his radar picked up on the fact that I was turned off by both his personality AND his looks. He gingerly asked if I was going to come in for a minute or just go home.

Okay, now my stomach is screaming “toilet, please.” I swallowed the huge lump in my throat and agreed that I would come in for a minute. Curse me and my gelatin heart!!! After about 15 minutes, I told him that I needed to leave. You’ll never guess what came next. Well, maybe you can. He tried to… (fanning my hand in front of my face) KISS ME!!! Needless to say, I declined as politely as possible. I mean, I know he’s a man and the whole fragile ego thing. Thankfully, I managed to escape with most of my sanity in tact.

Fin!

 

NWSO’s two cents.

First of all, Tiffany, I don’t know why in the hell you went out with some random dude off the Internet, you couldn’t have been that bored. Ladies (and gents), I advise you not to go out with strangers—especially ones you’ve known for less than a day. That’s how one of my good friends wound up getting raped. While this story turned out mad funny and I appreciate it, I’m just glad to hear you didn’t actually end up being Larry’s lunchmeat.

Have you ever gone on a blind date? How did you “meet” the person? How’d the first face-to-face encounter turn out? Would you go out with someone you met online after only knowing to them for a few hours? What would you do if you showed up at the person’s crib (or wherever y’all met) and they weren’t attractive to you? Would you still give them a shot or make an excuse to cancel? Would you ever go on a blind date if a friend set it up? Why or why not? Any blind date horror stories you want to share?

Speak your piece…

 

BONUS: NWSO interview & flicks
Last month, your boy NWSO participated in a panel series called BLCK that was put on my homegirls Jennifer and Anastasia, among others. In addition to the discussion on the experiences of Black men in the professional world and ways we can network there was a nifty photo shoot of yours truly and an accompanying article. You can CLICK HERE to peep both.

    Yeah, homegirl was bugging for meeting up with this guy that she only knew for a day…..bad move. Although, I will say this—-trying out different methods of meeting people can be productive ONLY if both parties are mature enough to realize the importance of getting to know each other and don’t take offense to any cautious efforts of the other party.

    People are crazy…..bottom line. If u meet someone thru the net then u are put in a position where all u have to go on is WHAT THEY TELL U. It it can all be a fabrication, or it can be truth—-or even a mixture both. But u have no real resource to verify info on the type of person they are at all. So taking the time to get to know them before u do something like going to their home is essential! I would understand going to grab a few drinks convo—-it allows u to see how this person behaves in a social setting as opposed to a movie where there is no convo and awkard forms of affectiion might be attemped (ex. homey tryin to hold hands…wtf?) That is definately a no-no.

    Lmao! I feel you Tiffany, sometimes you just think what the heck, whats the worst that could happen? I have landed up on many horror dates that have made me (temporarily) retire from the dating game all cause of boredom and a what the heck attitude. Great choice for a guest blog.

    I didn’t quite go blind date off the internet but I have had some really horrible dates either due to being set up or I’ve gone out with a guy that made a really nice friend but in no way would make a good boyfriend. It’s a horrifying situation and it always makes me think of that scene from The Breakup when Jennifer Aniston leaves her date on an emergency and the friend is boredly saving her on the other line.

  • shrtymack332000

    xcuse me ladies but i must admit that there are crazy situation on a blind-date but i like to view my friends and conversate and keep it as real as possible to them so when they see the pic then the know that i’m genuine ,and also if we make phone converstation i ask for them to set up a meet and greet session before we take it any further so tat way if the person or persons don’t like what they see they haveanoption to the rule.

    Well… I dont think it was safe practice to meet a guy off the internet and ride in a car with him , or go into his home… Other than that, what is the difference between meeting a guy in a bar, a book store or a supermarket and the internet really? They are all people you dont know, but take CAUTION measures to get to know.
    Before the internet became so readily available predetors where finding victims in other places besides a chat site. (So nothing is really “safe”)

    My words of advice.. Drive your own car. Meet at a well populated location. Text the license plate, interary and phone number to a friend. Never be alone with him/her until you are VERY sure/familiar.

    I have had a few blind dates… and most ended the same… disastrous/no follow up… Like meeting a guy at applebee’s then going bowling the same night… man did he turn out obnoxious!

    But the creative name deserves kudos…lol!

  • http://girlshesgottahaveit.blogspot.com/ Jennifer

    Tiffany is bold, because most sensible young women today wouldn’t even go as far to consider meeting a stranger off the Internet and going out with him on the same day. That’s dangerous by all means, and she should be thankful that nothing happened to her. I know that there are just as many crazies in person as there are online, but I’ve always felt like you should be extra cautious when a computer is involved.

    I’ve never been on a blind date, and I’m not opposed to it either. I’d like to think that my friends know me well enough to find a suitable guy for me to potentially date. But if he did turn out to be an ug-mug, I’d thug it out and finish the date. Hurting a man’s feelings is not my favorite thing to do, unless he was being a jerk and acting a fool, because then he’d deserve it. I’d wait until after the date to call (from a restricted #, probably) and tell him that it’s not going to work out.

  • Elle

    Lmaooooo … Yea, I have had my fair share of these same kind of encounters in the past.

    Once, I was a victim of the “fake pic posse” and was utterly shocked when dude looked nothing like his pic. We had been emailing and talking on the phone for a couple of weeks before we decided to meet. In all this time, he didn’t consider it necessary to come out with the truth. “Oh well” I thought “He is nice nonetheless. Let me not hold this against him just yet.” The nice part of me stayed and honestly planned to enjoy the date when Fake Frank didn’t hold the door open for me. That was it. This lack of manners killed the final, itty, bitty chance he had been given.
    Yes, Da Throne, I know you’ll be pulling the emancipation card on me – but I’m sorry. When I walk behind you, you shouldn’t let the door shut in my face. No matter if you are man, woman, friend, lover, stranger. It’s a matter of common courtesy.
    On top of his caveman behaviour, the convo was lame and I don’t think I have ever looked at my watch this often. When using the restroom, I actually considered climbing out of the window and driving away. If he hadn’t held the parking card, I think I would have really pulled that off.

    My second “blind date” experience started out quite similar to Tiffany’s. He had contacted me on a social networking site, was new in town and wanted to explore the city a little that same evening. I was bored and figured “What the heck, why not? If it is my destiny to die by the hands of serial killer, so be it.” I guess I have to add the info that ol’ boy was a pro balla and I wanted to see what the hype was all about. His pics were his pics. He was a true gentleman. And I actually caught myself laughing quite often. So the date itself wasn’t a bad one at all. The turn off came afterwards when he sent me text messages and his grammar/spelling were horrible. Call me an elitist or whatever you like but bad spelling is a major turn off for me. So a handful of text messages later I came to the conclusion that I’d have to ignore him from this point on because he fulfilled the cliche of the hot but dull athlete.

    No more blind dates for me. And I would definitely not let my friends set me up with anybody. They don’t know how to pick out good guys for themselves. How on earth would they suddenly be able to pick one for me. Not likely.

  • distinguishedgentlewoman

    It wasn’t really a blind date, we had met once before. My friend D invited her friend Michael to come along with us to the Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village. After the parade, I get a call from D telling me that her friend really dug me and that she gave him my number. To tell the truth, I hadn’t even noticed homeboy, but on the strength of him knowing D, I figured he was good people and gave her the okay. That same night, I get a call from Michael. He’s a little weird on the phone, but I chalk it up to him being shy. We talk off and on for a few days, then he stops calling.

    Fast-forward to Thanksgiving night, I get a call from Michael. We exchange a few pleasantries and agree to meet up the day after Thanksgiving to go ice skating in Central Park. A lightbulb must have flashed in the back of my head, because instead of giving him my address, I agree to meet him at the magazine stand near the subway station. The night of, I get to the magazine stand early—a rarity for me, being that I’m always late for everything. I wait for about half hour, no Michael. I finally give up and head back home.

    A few hours after I get home, the phone rings and it’s Michael.

    Michael: Hi, how are you?
    Me: How am I? Where the heck were you? I thought we were supposed to meet at the magazine stand?
    Michael: Yeah, I was there. I saw you waiting for me. You were wearing…
    Me:You saw me waiting for you? So why didn’t you come over to me?
    Michael: Because I wanted to watch you. I love watching you. I love the way you move. You’re a freak aren’t you?
    Me: Say what? You love watching me? Are you out of your mind? You know what, good-bye.

    I was so angry, not only because I was stood up, but also because I felt the dude was playing games with me. After hanging up the phone, I call D to explain what happened.

    D: Oh, he must be off his meds.
    Me: He must be what?
    D: Off his meds. Michael is schizophrenic. He had just come out of the hospital a few days before the parade. He does so well when he’s on his meds, so he must have stopped taking them.
    Me: Say what? You gave my number to a dude that just came out of a mental institution? Are you buggin’?
    D: Well, he seemed okay. And he said he really liked you. So I didn’t see anything wrong
    Me: Never again. You hear me. Don’t ever do that to me again. Bye.

    I never heard from Michael after that night. Thank God.

  • Dc Man with a Plan

    We have JOKE time in full effect 2day…lmao..Tiffany,tiffany, tiffany, maybe you shoulda called this one: Tiffany lunch-head…….But for real, I must echo the words of a few others: It’s okay to be bold and spontaneous but don’t ACT desperate by going out with a dude you only chatted with and spoke to for part of a day. That just isn’t smooth. And ALWAYS meet in a well lit, public place and let a friend know where you’re going and who you’re with. Elle is STILL my virtual boo cuz she demands a dude open doors and what not..I’m down with that, sis, it’s the minumum courteousy you should expect from a man……@ Distinguished…Dang, your friend could be called a lunch-head too. Dude just out of the pycho ward and she gives him YOUR number? Wow, that’s wayy outta line, but evidently your good peeps cuz I’d still be PISSED behind some friggin B/S like that….As a man, trust me when I say I expect to meet a woman just as I stated: In a well lit, public place bcuz CRAZY goes both ways…lol………I have not done a real blind date though I have met several women I met on the internet AFTER we chatted on the phone and via Im’ing and found enuff interest to wanna meet, but that typically takes several weeks before I wanna meet you. Over time, you can findout if a person can put a coherent sentence together, if they can talk at different times of day and night and whether they can hold a conversation. Fortunately, all of the women I have met look like their pictures, cuz I sho-hate when the pic and the REAL don’t match…..lol..I give you ladies prop for giving a guy a chance when he’s playing the fake photo game or the: this is what I looked like back in “82” drama.
    And the moral of the story is: just like you shouldn’t go food shopping when you’re hungry…don’t go chatting on-line when you’re bored!!

  • Dc Man with a Plan

    Thinkin of spontaneous hook-ups…..I recall hearing of a web site called something like: quickie fling…A caller spoke of it back in the day when Monique had her show. Seems they have rules and ery’thing about how you don’t kiss, don’t call and don’t plan to get together EVER again…..I was like: huh? I understand spontaneity…but that sounds like some bizarre, I have a death wish or am REALLY, really desperate…or tripping….or into fetishes that are wayyy off the scale type ish……….Far be it for me to judge, (but I do and will bcuz I’m socialized to do so as an American) but that’s not me…then again, when I went to Jamaica….uhmm, that was “different” cuz what happens in Vegas, Jamaica, the DR……U know the drill, stuff you do ” away ” from home are “acceptable” bcuz you’re AWAY…..Yeah, double standards make life SOOO much more difficult.

    This is Tiff ya’ll..Lol…Man, I appreciate everyone’s helpful and sound advice…I DID provide my fam and friends with Mr. Lunchmeat’s vitals:home address, cell & home ph no’s…well, u get the idea…I probably should have turned around at the door when I saw that he looked like a cross between a llama and a platypus, but hey, I’m an active member of PETA..what can I say? J/P…Anyway, if I lived in area that offered something a little more arousing than cow tipping and corn shucking I could have engaged in those activities…but the wild, wild web is about the best we sassy sistas can do round these parts..yee haw!!

  • Dc Man with a Plan

    Cerebally Orgasmic? Damn…I wanna take you out NOW too….lol. I feel ya, Tiff. Sometimes what we do to make the best of our living situations seem unwise or riskier to peeps in more populous places……When you say ” cow tippin ” I’m thinkn you probably gotta go a whole county over to find peeps nobody in your briar patch knows…lol….I have been in some desolate places so I can feel ya…..

    i can understand the boredom led to the date part but i think u were kinda crazy your dang self for still going into his house after! esp when you were so over it

  • BK

    So the blind date “disaster” was that his looks weren’t up to par? Id say that way less disaster than annoyance. I was expecting drunk confessions, nude streaking, maybe a hospital visit.

    Shame on you though. You saw his pic, decided to go for it. Dater beware…

  • nik1908

    Well mine wasn’t a blind date per say, but a new guy. I invited him out to this concert at chastain park that I had tickets to ($70 ickets mind you). Now the concert was in the middle of the summer so I was fly in my little sun dress and sandals, early. Dude shows up in a jean suit with boots on….I was like are you serious? I could have let the fashion faux pas slide but dude had me waiting on him for like 30 minutes. Then he pulls up sweating and rambling about taking care of some business. So then he proceeds to tell me that he doesn’t even like the artist that we came to see. I’m like “dude you could have told me this before I wasted this ticket on you”. So we are sitting there and he is rambling about having to make his money and how the man has kept him down all the while sweating like a roasting pig. Nows it was warm but not that hot! Then he runs out to make a call and it started drizzling. I had an umbrella and was not gonna miss one of my favorite artists (India.Arie) for a little rain. He comes back and keeps complaining and asking me if we could leave and go somewhere else. Finally he got up to take another call and I sent him a text telling him to go ahead and leave and I would be fine. He sent me a message back saying that was fine but could he get some suga first! I wanted to go slam off but I didn’t. I sat there and enjoyed the show (with a few friends that moved down and sat with me after they witnessed the date from hell),praying to God that he was gone and I would never hear from him again.

  • Latsyrc41

    Tiffany, I’m really glad everything turned out ok (meaning that you came to no harm).

    I agree with others I guess, I probably wouldn’t have met up with someone after one conversation, but I get where you’re coming from. Boredom has made me do some “interesting” things too.

    As far my blind date experience goes, I’ve had a couple of dates within the last year. Both with guys I met on the internet.

    The first one turned out well. We had talked for several months before we finally decided to meet. It went ok offline for a while, but we turned out to be…um…sexually incompatible.

    The second one was a little more risky (I went to his house for our first meeting, after talking for a month or so). I had almost the exact same “what’s the worse that could happen…” thoughts as Tiffany. I crossed my fingers that he wasn’t a serial killer.

    He was smaller than I pictured him and a lot paler. :-) I thought he was cute tho. Anyway, after about an hour of chit chatting, he was all over me. I was wholly unprepared for that. I wasn’t scared and didn’t feel threatened, but I was surprised.

    It got a extremely hot for a first meeting, after all he was still technically a stranger (what was I thinking?). The night ended with embarrassment on both sides and we never spoke to each other again.

    I don’t know if I’d do the internet thing again.

    @ BK
    Yes, I saw his pics pre-hell date, BUT the photos really didnt look all that bad. The prob was the pics had to have been at least 5-10 years old. You know when you gain weight, it can REALLY make you look almost like a totally diff person. His pics were SO not current.

  • sweetsexxybrown

    Now that’s a funny story Tiffany. Luckily, everything turned out ok (your safety). I’m assuming this was your 1st experience with the internet. You DEFINITELY must have some parameters, rules/regulations, and or procedures set up for internet dating. I have definitely had my share of the sites (Black People Meet, MATCH, BP, etc.) I’ve met some crazies and I also met my ex, and I met a J.O. and then some more crazies. There are two dates that stick out the most though

    1)Dude who asked me to go to dinner and then wanted me to pay for it. (luckily mama ain’t raised no fool, I had my own money) But the funny part was that he had the nerve to try and kiss me at the end of the date! I quickly pushed him away and waved goodbye as he got in the cab. Now to all of you who want to call me out for expecting dude to pay…stop it. Yeah, if he asked me to go, he should pay. Plus, I’m more traditional in some parts of dating. Paying for dinner is one of them. (doesn’t mean I wouldn’t pay if you wanted to go dutch…but I expect dutch at the level of we just met…there’s been a few phone calls…I don’t even know your favorite color yet…or maybe in Tiffany’s case, I only knew him for one day,lol. Kiddin’ Tiffany, I couldn’t let that one pass)

    2) Then there was Ballerina Dude. We went on a date to a coffee shop and he was cool. He ordered our coffee and then I went to find us a spot to chat. I turned to see where he was from our seats and he is standing in 5th position. WTH? He wasn’t a dancer. He was a Real Estate Agent. He wasn’t standing in the slooth footed one foot in front of the other pose. He was in FULL POSE 5th position. My old dance teacher would’ve been so proud of him,lol. I did continue the date. I obliged him for another date as I thought maybe I was making all of this up in my mind….but I couldn’t get the pose out of my mind still. I was too busy thinking if I should introduce him to some of my gay male friends.

    One of my coworkers said to me, “Girl, you need to leave those men on the sites alone. It seems like something is wrong with all of them on there.” I was a bit offended as I was on there and nothing was “wrong” with me. But, I can’t lie, I haven’t had any luck with the sites. Just funny stories. No regrets. Just stories to tell my grandkids one day.

    Hold up there are no way you can test a person craziness. No rapist and killer says “Hey Im a rapist and a killer” you can talk to them for months and never know. Some people know them for years and years and never know. So based on that logic no female should ever date.

    We are so paranoid as people she has a better chance of dying in the car ride over there!

  • http://nwso.net NWSO

    @Latsyrc41

    So… what was the embarrassment for both of you?

    @sweetsexxybrown

    What the hell is “5th position”? At first I thought u were talking about he was hard, but I didn’t take ballet so no idea what 5th position is.

    @Da ThRONe

    You always gotta take it to the extreme. lol

  • sweetsexxybrown

    @NWSO
    Lol. The best way I can describe it is if you stand up straight. Back erect, chest sticking out. Both legs are very tight together but the toes of your left foot are pointing towards the left while the heel of your right foot is parallel to your left foot. (your right heel would be directly in front of the toes on your left foot. Therefore the toes on the right foot are pointing to the right). Now, I think that’s 5th…if it’s not 5th, its one of the basic Ballet positions. Either way, no one should be standing like that waiting for coffee unless they are practicing/stretching or something. I especially don’t expect a man to stand like that unless he’s a dancer,lol!!!

  • Latsyrc41

    @Cerebrally_Orgasmic
    LOL…right there with you.

    @NWSO

    Well, he was new to my area and wanted someone to hang out with. When we were talking online, it was mostly platonic with a little flirting here and there (it did get a little explicit a couple of times, but harmless conversational stuff). But, meeting for the first time shouldn’t have turned into Freaknic 2009.

    I think HE was embarrassed because he was sooo out of control (he was in a kind of frenzy…LOL…and it was contagious). He apologized over and over. He felt like he had taken advantage of me.

    And I was embarrassed that I let a stranger do all sorts of freaky things to me (usually not my style).

    LMAO @sweetsexxybrown

  • Dc Man with a Plan

    2 Dathrone…while it is true you can’t necessarily “test” for craziness, you surely can sense and feel somethin isn’t right with a person right off the dribble AND people who don’t know you, unlike people who are used to you and easily dismiss your eccentric ways, may get the “vibe” you ain’t right even though your friends and family think you’re normal, or at least what they perceive to be YOUR normal…..Regardless, it is better to stick with a tried and true formula, imperfect as it may be, than to go off on some new shyt and wind up on the evening news. I’m all for doin you, but there is a degree of reasonableness that has to be accounted for….@ latsryc41…. I’m waiting to hear the embarrassing thing too. Let me guess: He couldn’t get it up…and you bit him givin head! lol…yeah, you gotta give an explanation or we ALL gonna fill in those blanks………

    I’m thinking the same thing. Meeting someone online is no different than meeting someone while running errands or at a night club. The only difference is that you know what they actually look like. Just because you meet someone while you’re out, doesn’t take away from the possibility of them being nuts.

    This is sooo hilarious. Distinguished…I would still be mad to this day if one of my friends did some ish like that to me. A mental institution? Are you serious? But wait, this part is crazy funny- Michael: Because I wanted to watch you. I love watching you. I love the way you move. You’re a freak aren’t you? Who says that….

    Anyhoo, I’ve had my share of blind dates. No horror stories here. When I think about the dumb ish my friends and I did in the past, I am lucky. Way back when, I met guys from chat lines, chat rooms, dating sites, and probably out of desperation met them after the very first time we spoke. Nothing came out of those encounters.

    @DC Man w/a plan

    So what do you suggest? What is the proper way to date online? I had a female that refused to meet me because we met online. We IMed back and forward for months. I even bump into her on Bourbon St. for Essense weekend and she still refuse to go anywhere with me. I thought that was ultra silly. We even did the webcam thing. But she had 1 bad experience and it ruined her ability to date online. She meant a dude months after we started chatting (in person) and she went on a date with him. I was thinking whats the difference you have known him less time then you known me ,but she had no answers we stop keeping in touch sometime later.

    @ Dathrone and Shay……I hear what you’re saying, but we’re talking about advice for women since THEY encounter more assaults in the dating game, than men do……..I find it cool to take a risk and go on a date with someone new, whether you met them on line or at CVS…no problem there, but now when you compound that issue by driving in their car and then going into THEIR house….That’s where you’re letting things get outta hand. Date rapes happen….people get shyt put in their drinks all the time…..I’m not saying be paranoid, but be reasonable. Also, I trulty believe, you can play with dangerous elements over and over and over again and encounter no problems, escape unharmed, no injury, it’s all good….but if you keep tempting fate, sooner than later, your azz is gonna get GOT! and that ain’t CUTE at all….then you got one of those SAD azz tales to tell….or memories that haunt you…then a regular fella like me approach her….and she don’t trust nobody…is fearful of every man and we have another lost soul……..bottom line: if it feels good and ” right to you ” do the damn thing……….I’m just sayin, for my comfort…draw the line some where…..have something you won’t do…or know what you think is going too far on a first date and then stick by your guns……

    So in college, I agree to hook my boy up with my girlfriend’s sister. I never met her, but my GF is really cute, so….. WRONG! This chick is like 6’2″, 250 with a big square head and a strong back and looks nothing like my GF. I still don’t believe they’re full blood sisters. Like my jaw hit the floor when I saw her
