>Someone please stop me from looking for a date on the Internet.
I’ve already stated my one story about a guy I went out with twice and told I wanted to see again, but really didn’t want to. I found another guy who seemed promising, until I talked with him on the phone. I’m not sure if he was deaf or just had a low IQ. Actually, I think it might be both.
He left a short message, “Hi this is so-and-so, call me back at 555-1212.” I’m pretty sure that’s all he said. And when I heard those 9 or so words I recoiled at the voice. I literally went, “Ugh!’ Call me quirky, but if a guy wants to date me his voice has to be pleasant to hear.
I should have went with my initial reaction and NOT called him back. One of these days I’ll actually listen to my instincts. But, of course I had to give him the benefit of the doubt, “Maybe the cell conneciton was bad, or something.” At least that’s what I thought.
Turns out, not only does this guy have a bad voice, but also is not smart. I’m not looking for a genius, just someone who can keep up the witty banter long enough to keep me interested. This guy just didn’t get it. He talked about his job with the city, his truck, and some other crap I can’t remember.
I am too nice (more like afraid) and told this guy I would call him the next day to arrange a date. And of course, I didn’t call him. He has since called me twice, which indicates that not only does he have a poor speaking voice, and low intellect, but also a low self-esteem.
I already know I’m going to hell and going to be alone for the rest of my life. But, for some reason I can’t completely accept my fate. I continue to surf the personals. I continue to look for love in all the wrong places.
Enough with the depressing drama speech! I’ve been saying that crap in my head for the past decade and it’s done little good. I’ve just got to keep reminding myself that it’s like looking for a job. It might take a while to find a good fit. I might have to try out a few candidates that initially seemed to work, but turn out to be a bad choice. I’ve just got to grow up and tell people the damn truth or else come up with a more acceptable white lie.
