Dating disasters2012-13 was the first time that I ever tried Online Dating. That wasn't successful, and I tried again in 2018. Two of the sites that I had joined were "Badoo" and "Mingle", and one of them was the source of my greatest dating disaster.
A man that I chatted with online for a few weeks worked 'off-shore', was single and 50, but still living with his mother (who didn't seem to trust him much). We first met at a restaurant, and although something about him appeared a bit 'off' to me, I ignored it. We went to the beach, and, in his already inebriated state, he made sure to stop along the way to visit his 'friends/family members' before getting there. I helped him find an apartment, which, I found out he never inhabited (weeks later). I invited him to church and, again, he showed up inebriated. We were to attend an end-of-year concert in his area, but he sounded so 'out of it' on the phone, I didn't go.
When I finally admitted to myself that dating him was 'un-productive' (about 6 months later than I should have), I told him so, he complained vociferously and I left the scene immediately. Of course, he was inebriated again. The next day, he was even more so, as he swayed and drifted from the restaurant that he was at, on his way to my parked car, mumbling to himself and fishing in his pockets for the $ that he owed me.
What a disaster that was!!!! And that was a shortened version.
Any scary stories to share?...Anyone...
