on looking for entertainment

I was talking to a friend the other day and she was trying to understand how/why/what would lead people to dating and getting married to people they meet online. She was totally lost as to how to even meet someone online. I then explained to her that earlier in my more idle days online I used to hang out at a few online communities and I went out once with one of the girls there.

It sounds sad but it was really just for kicks, I had no problems finding girls to go out with. Anyway I met her in Halfway Tree and she brought along a friend for security.. lol. I don't blame her, there are some strange people online. When they got in my car she exclaimed that I was nothing like what she was expecting. I had to bite my tongue not to say that she was everything I expected to get in an online girl.

Since as far as I was concerned I picked up the bad end of the stick in this date I decided that she would be buying me drinks at the bar despite my initial offer of me taking her out to the bar for drinks. She didn't really put up much of a fight when I informed her that she would be treating so we proceeded to the then happening place Escape in New Kingston.

It was cool at first, she bought me my favorite drinks, we hung out and played games. Eventually I noticed that my friends had started to come in and this was a situation that I didn't really see myself explaining anytime soon so I said bye to my date and neatly tucked out of there. I didn't mean to make such a hasty retreat but at that point in time no amount of gin and tonics was worth it.

That being said, I just watched you got mail.. lol she wishes life was like the movies.

since then it hasnt been so bad, i've met a bunch of ppl thru my favorite online forum. when ur not looking you'll meet cool ppl, the ones who are looking for someone to hook up with are total douche bags...lol

too bad it didn't work out

I've known ppl it's worked for but they live in large communities where online dating isn't as frowned upon and everybody doesn't know everyone's business.

Melody said...

Actually, ah shouldn't mek light of her situation, whoever she was -- merely can't get past her apparent willingness to be fined for not bein' what U expected.

Stunner said...

That's why I don't go out with people I have never seen before! You ditch her rough still!
