So, I have told you how much I loathe online dating...but, well I'm going to give it another go around. In my first official day of perusing the sites, getting responses & such, I come across two "creepies". And guess who I have to thank for it????? GOOGLE!
Google is the shit! I'll be the first, second, and and third to admit, I Googled (you know you are guilty of Googling yourself, admit it) a few people. And guess what? Two of the guys that contacted me are fucking creeps. Yep. I said it.
One, e-mailed me, talking about what a great catch he was. I found out, courtesy of Google that he was arrested and charged in 2006 for allowing patrons to use his club as a prostitution ring for minors...WTF??? I never would have found that out on the first date! And, it's not a case of mistaken identity either!!! He was/is the only person with that last name in the area...and the first name, that matches the last name. Now, maybe he reformed, but, Diva had to conduct her own background check. I had two stalkers in college...I must cross the t's and dot the I's.
The Second Guy e-mailed me, and has a fetish. I googled his e-mail address, and he posts on fetish websites, but in his e-mail to me, he said he wanted a "Christian woman", who believes in God and goes to church and he goes to church, blah, blah, blah (which I don't claim to be holy at all, and never responded to him). But he's posting on BBW for random sex hook-ups. Makes you go hmmmmm.
I wonder what else Google will reveal.
I love Google. I'll admit, though, I only have Googled guys I met online.
Guys I meet in person, not so much. They usually reveal their true selves within the first conversation/date/interaction, i.e. jailbird guy from a few weeks ago.
