His dating diary speeddating long island
Eventually in the desert of dross, some dates were actually OK. My friends refer to him as Usain Bolt, thanks to his speed out of the door.After three dates one guy accepted an invitation to dinner at mine, then five minutes after arrival said: "I can't do this. Another guy seemed really quite humanoid, and after several dates we spent an agreeable afternoon in the time-honoured manner.Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire Soon after that came the internet dating cliché -- the guy who described himself as 48, 5ft 10in and divorced, and turned out to be none of the above. Marital status: he was newly separated, but "didn't see the difference." The height: a girlfriend of mine describes 5ft 10in as "the lying height -- no man is actually 5ft 10in." In any case, I'm 5ft 7in.If they claim 5ft 10in, I wear flat shoes for the date, yet am accustomed to finding myself at best still eye-to-eye.Instead I pointed out that, even if I wanted to -- which I don't -- I couldn't join.He looked blank, and prattled some more about the masons' terrifically modern outlook.You start with a shiny optimism which you later recall with hollow mirth, as you become hardened to the God-awful chore of yet another "date" of jaw-dropping hideousness, later to provide grist to the entertainment mill for convulsed friends. And the man who wooed me with a description of his full-time caring duties for his elderly mother, adding "I go out occasionally for mid-price dining." What a tempter.Or the approach from the man whose chosen username was Travis Bickle, the Robert De Niro character in .
2 weeks seems to be a running theme with all of the guys I have seen, I need to learn to wait!
Later he emailed suggesting another fabulous encounter.
Unfortunately I had an appointment in a pit of tarantulas on the evening he suggested, so I was forced to decline.
In this instance, I was definitely peering down as I queried his age (according to , he must have gone to university at age nine).
"I didn't expect an investigative journalist," he huffed, and stomped off.
