My oh so interesting online dating experience... Update, Update 2
So. I went on OKCupid and met a couple interesting guys. One was really interesting, and I was going to drive an hour to see him yesterday. However, come to find out he didn't have a JOB and was driving his friend's vehicle. Further, his home had only a bed in it (he's 41 btw). And he proceeded to tell me about a vehicle for sale next door that he wanted, even told me how much it was. O..o He also tells me that he is very good in bed, and that all my relationships to this point have been a waste of time and that they never loved me or we'd still be together. Wait... what?
Saturday night I thought about everything he said and Sunday morning I tell him that in order to be with me that he needs to find a job and he needs to purchase his own vehicle. That I'm not saving him. And further, I won't be going to see him until he has those things.
This man had the NERVE to tell me that I had my priorities skewed and that I would never find a good man because good men would forever believe that I wouldn't hold them down in their darkest hour. I could only laugh. Hysterically.
SO I talked to a couple good men. Really good men. Good men that are even interested in me. Good men that I have been friends with for close to two decades. And even my father. They all said the same thing. A GOOD man would want these things for himself. A GOOD man would want to show a woman that he is interested in that if for some reason she wouldn't be able to work he could support her. A GOOD man would not think that the requirements of: job, own place, and a vehicle, are "jumping through firey hoops to be with you". (Yes, he actually said that).
I have since taken down all profiles for every dating site I have ever signed up for. Anyone else have some craziness like this happen?
UPDATE: So one of the guys, also met on OKCupid, that I gave my number to before I pulled all profiles, and I have been talking all day. He's one of the ones that said real men would want those things for themselves. Anyway, he seems like the total package, not holding my breath, but I'm kinda excited about this one. ***eek*** (Helps that he's hot, highly educated, gainfully employed, has his own place, AND car, and active in his kids' lives... and SINGLE... OMG.... am I asking too much? LOL)
UPDATE2: Ok, I give up. Officially. We were supposed to meet last night at 8:30, true "Southern Gentleman" style. *rolling eyes*. He texts me at 8 and says he has to help his parents move an entertainment center and it'd be closer to 9:30. Uhm. Ok. So I text him the address at 9. Nothing. 10 rolls around. Still. Nothing. Texts me at 11 (yes, ELEVEN) and says "I'm sorry, I just got done, are you up?"). Only people up that late at night are booty calls. Something tells me that he's not what he claims to be. *shrug* oh well. Ended up texting all night with an old friend about a business he's working on that he needs me to do some freelance work for. Sigh...
