I can’t believe how this just crashed and burned in the past 3 hours. It’s absolutely ridiculous, but here it is.
Yesterday, I was given two tickets to Wednesday’s Red Sox game. They’re obstructed view, so I’m probably going alone, just cause I can, but I figured I’d look around and see if anyone wanted to go.
This morning, a guy messaged me on OKCupid. We’re calling him The Annoyance. He messaged me a cute message and I hadn’t gotten around to writing back until the afternoon when he had sent me another message. Turns out that I had originally written to him 2 years ago. He apologized for my message slipping the cracks, and was hoping that I was still willing to chat.
His profile had mentioned that he was looking for a girl that could enjoy the Red Sox and such, so I was like “hey, how about this?” and offered him my extra ticket. He said yes, gave me his number, and we started texting.
After about 20 minutes, I was already tired of him, but didn’t know how to cancel on him . I really hate text conversations. Sometimes I don’t mind, like in the case of The DJ. But when the conversation isn’t going anywhere, it’s annoying. And he was asking so many questions! It was ruining out conversation for Wednesday’s date!
He wasn’t even all that interesting! He kept asking why I was single because he thought I was amazing. I HATE when guys flirt like that. It’s not attractive at all. When I told him that guys find me intimidating, he told me that I need to be nice. I told him that I’m always nice, but that I don’t take shit and I call people out. He asked why guys find me intimidating, and I said that I’m a tomboy and feisty.
Seriously, this guy wasn’t going to be able to handle me.
And then I asked him for a picture. I mentioned that it was hard to see him in his pictures that he had posted. One picture, I slightly remember- FROM TWO YEARS AGO. The other pictures, he looked different. So, not that I’m shallow, but I wanted to know who I was going to be meeting.
Yea, here’s a lesson for all of you on online dating: USE CURRENT PICTURES. Turns out he’s gained quite a bit of weight and isn’t attractive at all.
I know that makes me sound shallow, but c’mon. He was already annoying me, so whatever.
And then this happened:
Maybe I jumped ahead too far on this one, but I was already so annoyed with him, that I couldn’t deal with it any more.
The conversation went from there, him trying to back track and apologize. I told him that maybe we could meet up another time, but not at the game.
Thank God that date never happened. Good Lord.
