The danger is when the people who tell them use them as an excuse to avoid all online dating.
They don’t admit that they just happened to meet a turkey or a jerk – as they could in any other form of dating.
It was January and I walked in to see a disheveled, middle aged man in a floppy fishing hat, socks without shoes, and, to my best guess, an adult diaper.
His stocking feet shuffled him over to me in a Peanuts character fashion, and he flung his arms around me. We went outside to the communal table around the fire, where I discovered that he’d left his shoes and four giant stacks of photos as place holders for us.
He spent a lot of time ranting about his ex-wife, borderline bashing his children, and to top it all off, he was rude to the waitress (my number one first date deal breaker). -Amy I met a beautiful, modelesque woman online and, after several messages back and forth, we set up a time to meet. When I walked in, I didn’t see her but another (much older, much larger) woman stood up and walked toward me.
