Online dating and the BS! This is the part of the series that I have been waiting to write.
As I talked about in Parts 1 and 2, of my 3 part series, “Online Dating: The Good, The Drama and The BS,” online dating can be a great way of getting out there again, meeting people you would not otherwise have the opportunity to meet or it can be a means of entertainment. Whatever the reason you are using online dating for, it can be all those things and more, but oh, baby, be prepared for the bs!
Yes, there comes a lot of bs with online dating and because of the bs, many people give up very quickly on online dating because like me, they have no patience and time for the bs. I know your probably wondering just what I’m talking about, so let me get to it.
One day, I’m online minding my cute business, browsing through profiles, when I receive a message from a guy simply saying, “Hello. I would like to get to know you.”
Now before I respond to any message, I always look at the profile to see their pics and read what they have to say.
This is the bs that I’m talking about…
I know you’re probably questioning if you just read what you just read? Hell, I had to do the same thing!
This dude is in prison and served 21 years! But wait…you are 44 years old and been locked down for 21, so you went to prison at 23 and you have a house? With a fireplace? Really? And here we go again, another man who wants to go to the damn beach!
What is it about dudes and beaches on these online dating sites?
I didn’t even post his profile pic was him kneeling next to a toilet. Come on, Son! Get the hell out of here with that bs!
But that’s not all folks…check this out…
A friend of mine, met a man online and he seemed cool. They talked on the phone for a month before she finally agreed to meet him. They met for coffee and both seemed to vibe with one another. Their next meeting was for dinner, 2 weeks later. The guy invited her to Nobu and still making sure that she was being safe, she drove herself and met him there.
They had a great dinner and the conversation was “really good,” she said. According to her, “everything was really cool” and she was feeling ole boy. When he excused himself to go to the restroom, she text me a “thumbs up” to let me know that everything was going good but called me 20 minutes later.
“This fool left and didn’t even pay the damn check! No wonder, his ass was ordering a bottle of wine and the most expensive shit on the menu!”
Honey, what kind of bs is that! Good thing my girl had a her credit card on her because that meal cost her ass close to $500 and do you know that mf had the nerve to text her an hour later, thanking her for dinner and saying that he had a wonderful time!!!!
Who does that shit??
I can go on and on with the craziness and stories that I have encountered online. The online dating game is real folks and if you aren’t ready to deal with the good, the drama and the bs, then online dating is NOT for you!!
