Enter Mr Internet and Mr Too Good! They were so named so my friend and I could keep track of them and he knew exactly who was who.
I met Mr Internet first and I thought we really clicked and we set up Date 1. He told me he would confirm that saturday but thank goodness he didnt – I had a mini melt down and spent my saturday VERY drunk sobbing my heart out. So Date 1 didnt happen. We continued chatting and I actually started liking him. Date 2 was set, baby sitter was organised – I was ready. He didnt confirm! So no Date 2. By now I was starting to think maybe he didnt WANT to meet. The conversation then took a turn onto x-rated subjects and I VERY quickly realised what it was he wanted and when I announced I lived at home I could actually see him start searching the site for fresh blood! Anyway he insisted that he was not like “that”?? By now I was like WHATEVER! And we planned Date 3 – but no baby sitter was organised but I did tell Angie and followed it with – bet you though he is going to cancel. The message came on Sat evening – “I cant make tomorrow”! I replied “Its cool I knew already and I have plans anyway” – well wasnt he upset with me! I MEAN REALLY NOW!!!!!! He is sitting at home on a saturday night whinging about how I dont beleive that he is ALWAYS busy? Needless to say when he fired the “I wont bother you message” – I replied “thanks”
During this courtship I met Mr Too Good! He is possible the most open guy I have met online. In the first conversation he gave me the name of the company he worked at , his work mail addy and his cell phone number! Its rare you find people so open these days. So we chatted for a few days then he called me and was very sweet. But was a tad too sweet by conversation no 2 and seriously possesed more optimism that the worlds motivational speakers put together! Our conversations consisted mainly of him saying “gosh we have so much to be grateful for” and “we are all so lucky we have jobs” and “there are people worse of than us” – I am all of being grateful and positive but there is such a thing as TOO MUCH! So I began dreading our conversations but gave him the benefit of the doubt and agreed to meet. 40 min before the date he calls me ‘can we postpone till next week there is traffic blah blah blah’ – I switched off. I was a bit miffed cos I had even shaved my legs for this date!
Anyhoo long story short he smsed me on sunday (2 days before date 2) to tell me he was in hospital with a broken collar bone (my first thought was you could have just said you had to wash you grans hair) but he sounded genuine. When I was feeling sorry and saying how that sucked he fires an sms back ‘We have so much to be grateful for! There are people much worse off than us’. I nearly threw up.
I know I should have smsed to see how he is doing today but I did spare a thought for those less fortunate than us instead. (It was actually much easier and didnt make me want to throw up)
So thats that I am OFFICIALLY off ALL sites now! My knight will have to come galloping threw the traffic the conventional way!
