The One That Couldn’t Take No for an Answer!
This is another guy I met online (groan..yes..). We talked a bit on MSN and he seemed to be OK. The first red flag I got was when he called me to confirm our date. I didn’t care for the way he spoke to me on the ‘phone. He was talking to me as if I was a child, explaining things (we were talking about training dogs, specifically Schutzen classes) which I knew a bit about. He then asks me after a few minutes of conversing if I would “click” with him and develop the relationship into something more meaningful. I was stunned..eeek! I told him straight then and there that I could not decide such a thing without getting to know him in person, not over the phone. He said OK and we fixed a dinner date. I was cringing on the other end of the line, but I decided to take a chance. I should have listened to my first instinct. Oh boy.
We met halfway (he was about 2 hours from me) at a sports restaurant-bar in a town about 40 minutes from my place. He looked much older in person (must have been the bad lightening on the web cam..lol) and started off by saying, “oh by the way, I’m 45; I put 38 on my profile because everyone gives me that age.” Oh oh I thought to myself, obviously, they misinformed you because I would have given him AT least his age..lol. I really dislike the fact when people lie about their age on these sites; my age is up for everyone to see with a recent photo, always.
So we ordered two mugs of beer and started talking about dogs, (we each had one) and it was a good icebreaker. He was very animated when he talked, talking very loud and attracting the attention of the tables about us. I, being very discreet and low key, was asking myself already how fast could I get away from this guy! Then, he would laugh loudly and start telling dirty jokes, all the while slapping my shoulder hard enough to knock me over! Every time I saw him come out with a punch line, I wiggled back a few inches so that the shoulder slap wouldn’t be so hard. I was freaking out in silence.
Suddenly, he asks me, “so, after we have dinner, how about going to a hotel and having some fun?”
I was stunned. I looked at him and said point-blank: “I’m sorry, but did I mention to you that I wanted to sleep with you or have a one night stand? Didn’t you read my profile on the site you saw me? I’m not interested in that, I am interested in meeting someone and having a long-term relationship. I am here to get to know you, period.”
It didn’t seem to sink in, he just smiled and said, “ so, I’m attracted to you, why not go and have fun afterwards!”
I looked at him, wondering what part of NO he didn’t understand. I couldn’t believe this jerk was pushing like this. I said no again, re-explaining everything.
He just shrugged his shoulders and pulled out his wallet, “here, look at my ex, she was a real model knockout. Women are running after me all the time. I am offering you the chance of a lifetime!”
I was choking with laughter (inside my head of course) this total idiot played the “all the hot women are after me” line. I just kept a serious face and told him, “I’m sorry, but that doesn’t change my mind.”
The more he persisted, the more I wanted to get the hell out of there. Finally he asks me, “so, what do you think of me, do I have a chance or not.”
“I’m sorry, but no, you are really not my type, I’m being honest with you, and that’s that.”
He shrugged his shoulders and said, “well, I guess we should forget about dinner, because If I take you out to dinner, I would like to go to a hotel afterwards.”
The waitress came over with the bills and I paid my beer and took off for home, Now that was a short date!! I was relieved to get back on the road and far away from Mr. Can’t Take NO For an Answer!
