I actually met my husband through online dating, and we have been together for nearly 4 years now. But before him, I would surf the net and frequent dating sites, just to see what the scene was like.
Well, I connected with this guy. We’ll call him “Tim”. He seemed great, we had a lot in common, and pretty much hit it off. I described myself to him, and my dating site profile actually had pictures, so he could see what I looked like. He told me he was about 6’0, in shape, and very attractive. He said he was single, and wasn’t looking for a girlfriend, just someone to kick it with. I was cool with that, that’s pretty much what I wanted as well.
He lived about 45 minutes from me, and we eventually decided to meet. He had to take the bus to my house since he didn’t drive. He called me, saying “I’m coming down the block”. I peeked out my door, and the only person I could see was this tiny…pint sized person walking toward me. I had to squint my eyes, because from far away, he looked like he could be someone’s 14 year old son.
He finally arrived at my door, and I was floored. Mister 6’0 was really about 5’2 and skinny as hell, no real “shape” and not very attractive. Still, I let him in because I figured we connected so I’d see what he was all about. He turned out to be an O.K. guy, so we just kicked it pretty much on a friendship level. After a few visits, we ended up being intimate one night, and boy…he had NO CLUE what he was doing.
I pretty much decided at that point that “friends” was all we should be, because I was through with teaching men what I wanted. We drifted apart after a while, for one reason or another.
One day, I got a call from a woman who asked if I knew “Tim”. For some reason, the name didn’t ring a bell, so I told her “no”. She called back about 15 minutes later, asking the same question. Then I remembered..I described him to her, and she said “yeah, that’s him”.
I immediately knew we were speaking of the same person, because at the same time, we both made the statement that he is horrible in bed. She went on to say that she was his WIFE, and he’d been cheating on her with numerous women forever, and she didn’t understand it because he isn’t that good looking and isn’t a great sex partner.
“Tim” actually called me the same day, and I told him to go F himself because I spoke to his wife, basically retelling the story. He swore that she’s lying, he had no wife and blah blah blah. I changed my number after that.
