The Older Man, His Health Issues & Transitional Housing

Dating & Relationships / June 19, 2012

45 is not that old.  Hell, I’m 38 and in pretty good health, so I “thought” why not give this 45 year old man a chance.  He’s tall, handsome and all that good stuff, so when he contacted me on the dating website, I thought, “Why not?”  Let the bullshit begin…
Our initial conversation was cool, nothing to write home about.  Now, the second one, (rolls my eyes), now that one, reveled a couple of things.  First of all, most of the conversation was monopolized with him talking about his health issues.  How he used to have a slipped disc and ALL the treatments that he had to correct it, including the settlement that he received from it.  And oh, before I forget this, he needed that settlement to pay back child support!!!

Then, he proceeded to tell me about his high blood pressure, his knee that has been bothering him, etc. etc.  FOR REAL!!!  Are you seriously gonna run down your medical history and have this whole conversation by yourself?  Yes, BY HIMSELF, because what can I really interject here besides, “Oh Really and UM MM HM MM.”
Continuing the conversation, I asked where he lived and do you know what that fool told me?  “TRANSITIONAL HOUSING.”  WHAT THE FUCK??   “EXCUSE ME?  WHAT DID YOU SAY?”  He repeated what he said and my thoughts were immediately running to, “EX CON.”  Isn’t that where they send people when they get out of jail or something?
I could not get off the phone fast enough.  I had to quickly say, “You know what?  I don’t think this is going to work.”  Of course, he asked, “Why?”  “Let me run it down to you,” I said.  “First of all, you have too much going on, health wise and all hell…just too much going on.  You are 45 and breaking down.  Your knees, your back, your high blood pressure. What the hell am I going to do with all THAT!  Our whole conversation was about YOU and tell me where you live again?”  “Transitional housing,” he murmured. “My point exactly!  Deuces!”
I guess that invisible sign on my head, that can only be seen by idiots and losers can even be seen on a picture through the computer.  I have had countless facials, used different facial cleansers and exfoliates and I STILL have been unable to get that invisible sign off my head. Oh well, another one bites the dust and my journey continues….

At least he was honest. But someone needs to tell him that's the stuff you're supposed to lie about until someone falls in love with you and they are trapped.

Ain't much out there, but at least if you blog you can laugh about it.

Ok…he could have just said he has roommates. Not Transitional Housing. Eeek.

And you don’t talk about your ailments before the first It’s not like you can look at him and tell he has those things going on.

Umm…am I the only person who doesn’t know about Ciroc and Lemonade?


    on April 9, 2013

    LOL! You don’t know about Ciroc and Lemonade? Oh! You are missing out. You must try it. You are right about him giving up all that info but I guess he was trying to be honest. I can appreciate that…LOL

    Margaret, I don’t know. I guess when you are “older” you lay it all out in the table??

Girl this is TOO funny! I have a ton of dating disaster stories…I really need to submit one. I hollered when I got to the part about transitional housing! #stopit!

    on April 9, 2013

    You really should submit one! Girl…the HALF WAY HOUSE!!! Lawd have mercy!!!

on April 9, 2013

Girl, that is just too much. I have health issues but I’m going to lure your ass in first. Like someone said, trap’em. By all means don’t tell all your business during the first convo. Hell, I’ve learn a person’s life history during the first day. I know I’m tired of meeting men crazier than a batch of coked up bed bugs.

Let's Talk! I want to know what you think?
