Guess these folks didn't pick the 'ideal' place to meet. And sometimes even hooking up with a person you've never met can be a challenge.
I consider myself pretty wise about the pitfalls of online dating, but this guy took the cake, or should I say the burrito... I had been talking to a guy for several weeks and no red flags had been raised during our lengthy chat sessions or phone calls.

She suddenly realized that she was at the wrong Starbucks, and raced up the street to the other Starbucks. She was about 30 minutes late so she just started going up to all the guys in the Starbucks saying “Are you Christian? Are you Christian?” Later, she realized why all the guys … [Read more...]
