Diva The Investigator

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.

I love Google...when I was in college I Googled my "first" (after we broke up) and he had a record...then his mom called me and told me he was on the local most wanted, on the 11 o' clock news, and if I knew where he was, that they were offering a $10,000 reward.

My roommate and I tried to get the reward without "revealing" ourselves, he was at a bar...but it didn't work...

No paying my Tuition with the 10K, because they wanted too much info...damn them...

Ahhh, the young & dumb days of dating...I'm more careful now. I actually have some standars :)

Yes, Google is Godsend.

Yes, I Google myself and yes I Google mofos I meet online. I tried the online dating site but never followed through it. Lost interest. Though, I'm sure it's great dating blog fodder!

Quick Update - so the Fetish guy has e-mailed me AGAIN! (Twice)

Now, I don't care that he has a fetish (that doesn't involve illegal stuff) what I care about is the fact that he comes off as being FAKE.

Maybe it's because I am anti-Religion & am more Pro-Spirtuality...like I don't think you have to say you go to church & pray, and blah, blah, blah, because clearly, that doesn't mean anything these days...U should let your actions speak louder than your words...

So I still haven't responded to him...reminds me of this other guy I met a couple of years ago...I'll blog about it

@ POW - Fun times huh!!!

@ Dani - yep...although he didn't run it per se, he allowed it to happen in his club...idiot. He may have took part in it...I'm not taking any chances...

Damn, you sure are meeting interesting men online. The one's I meet may turn out to be assholes, but more often than not they're boring assholes. LOL. Seriously though, I do google guys I meet nowadays. I've never found out anything all that interesting. But I figure there's no harm in looking.

You have to be a damn detective these days people are crazy! The child porno ring and the super freak deserve the snooping in their background could you imagine if you actually took those cats seriously.

Side note I google myself and everyone I know well because I am curious...

Journey to my soul said...

I have tried online dating also. Sucks in DC, but yeah I always google people too. screen names are a good way to find stuff lol

BlkBond said...

That fetish will get you. Maybe he wants a Christian woman (wife/girlfriend) and a side piece (BBW). He has a purpose for both. Wow @ BBW...I just...can't.

I just googled myself :/

mostly business related.

I found my old college webpapge from like 10 years ago. I forgot the password so I can't take it down...

Skoolboi Krush said...

You trying to say he a can't be a christian and a freak?

DC DIVA DATING ADVENTURES said...

@ Schoolboi - Pretty much...I guess it's the way he presented his "package"...see, me. I don't lie about it. I will tell you in a minute, I haven't been to church or a resembelance of church in well over a year (pushing 2)...but I believe there is a God, because there are some situations, I couldn't have made it out of if there wasn't one :)

In anycase, he should have said..."I go to church, because I'm trying to live "right" but I'm a big ole freak at heart"...

something like that...

I just have a problem with hypocrits, that's all...
