Back in the day, online dating was taboo. Now that it is mainstream, it is not uncommon to encounter profiles of people I know. On Monday night, a guy with whom I went to middle and high school messaged me. The picture he had up on the site was of a sunset, but his location was set as the town in which we grew up. His initial message to me also tipped me off as to his identity because he had previously sent me similar messages on facebook. After confirming his identity, I was taken aback because to my recollection, he had a girlfriend. I checked his facebook profile only to find that he had defriended me, but his profile picture was of him and the girlfriend. Accordingly, his presence on the dating site is shady, to say the least. I continued the dialogue he had started in an effort to compile evidence to send to his girlfriend. If I were in her shoes, I would want to know about my boyfriend’s online dating escapades. As you will read below, I asked the guy if his girlfriend knew about his participation in online dating. He said she did not. He immediately changed the information in his profile and pulled the sunset picture (because it’s probably a picture that the girlfriend knows). The most painful part of this whole exchange is that I had to endure his numerous grammatical errors. Survey: SHOULD I TELL THE GIRLFRIEND?!
Predator: god your so dam sexy woman ;) How have you been? Your pix are amazing!
Princess MoMo: Who is this?
Predator: air hocky champion hahah
Princess MoMo: You mean air hockey chump? As I recall, you’re not too good with your hands.
[Editor’s Note: I dated one of his friends in 2009. When I was dating said friend, we went to the house of another mutual friend who has an air hockey table. I whipped the Predator’s ass in air hockey. Don’t even fuck with my air hockey skills.]
