I was going to go on a date on Saturday ... →
[More:]... with a guy from OKC.
He seemed quite nice, physically not my type at all but we have some interests in common. We were going to go to a lunchtime gig on Saturday. Then he started adding in all these extra things we could do "... and if you don't like X, we can do Y. And if you don't like that, we can do A, B or C..."
But I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he seemed to be trying a bit too hard which might be down to nervousness. He also admitted he'd lied about his height - he'd said he was 5ft 4" in his profile but then said he was 'nearer' 5ft 2". It wasn't a dealbreaker to me, as I'm only 4ft 11 myself, but I didn't like the fact that he'd lied in his profile. But I do understand why he did because height is often a big dealbreaker for women.
I'd already explained to him that I had a busy week ahead but it didn't deter him from sending me several emails a day, with 'jokes' or just some general rambling about himself.
But today he emailed me three times. First to say he'd woken up thinking about me. Secondly (in response to my comment that I am 'reserved' in person) that I am indeed 'reserved for him' and then to say he'd had an accident - which turned out wasn't an accident at all but was an intro to another 'joke'.
So I just sent him this:
You know, it's a little creepy to hear that you woke up thinking about me. And that I am 'reserved' for you. I really don't like that. We don't know each other and although I'm sure you were just trying to be funny, it doesn't come over like that at all. It's made me feel uneasy, and so I think in all the circumstances I'd prefer not to meet you on Saturday.
I think instead I'll go to the local cat shelter and adopt the 57 cats I'll end up with as a crazy old cat lady, and just bypass the next 20 years ...
