Semi-Catfished

So I had been doing the online dating thing for a while which made me kind of hip to some of the deceptive things that a lot of men do with their pictures and profile information.  As I was perusing this guy’s profile trying to determine if I should swipe left or right, I decided “what the heck?” and swiped right.  He was attractive and cleaned up nicely according to his picture.  However, he only had ONE picture [RED FLAG #1] and his mouth was closed [RED Flag #2] which made me concerned that he might have a yuckmouth. He...

Thank God For Facebook! (TGFF)

So I met this guy who was a part of the night shift crew at my job….when I’m clocking out, he’s clocking in. He’d regularly come into the office a few minutes early and we’d have small talk. I learned that he was ex-military and a gym rat with multiple jobs. Anyway, this dude was FINE, tall, and delicious, but I couldn’t really tell if he was digging me beyond a professional level and I damn sure wasn’t going to pursue him. [I’m shy! Sue me. Lol] Well on this one particular evening, I was...

SMH!

SMH!

So I pulled up to work one morning and I parked a little farther away than normal because my usual parking space was gone [I worked in a residential area]. As I finished up my breakfast and did a last minute touchup to my makeup, I noticed a man walk by and get into his car next to where I was parked. I didn’t really pay him any attention because I was still primping for work. A couple of minutes later, I was startled by a knock on my window and, when I looked up, it was the guy that I had just seen. I kept thinking to myself “I...

Not All Black Men Fit The Stereotype

I didn’t have the heart to tell him the truth because I didn’t want him to feel bad. So, I naturally became distant for the next few days…wasn’t reaching out to him and my level of interest obviously changed. I finally got the nerve to tell him that I needed some space. I blamed it on..

The Klutz

So I’d been seeing this guy for a while and he asked me out on a dinner date. I liked him a whole hell of a lot so, of course, I accepted. We had a fabulous time at the restaurant…the food was great, service spectacular, and the ambiance was just perfect. We couldn’t help but get caught up in the moment by holding hands, feeding each other, and sharing a kiss or two. It was just great! [My heart still flutters] We decided to go to the liquor store before heading back to his place [I was staying the night] to continue the...

A Con and A Fraud

A Con and A Fraud

So, I met this guy on a dating app. We went out and he seemed like everything I could possibly hope for. I liked that he seemed goal-oriented, focused, and motivated. From our first date, he seemed like someone who knew what he wanted and was as tired of the dating scene as me. We met in October and by Thanksgiving, I met his family. I was for sure that he was serious about me, but I started to notice and find strange things. I had trust issues from previous relationships, so I would periodically search his phone or around the house. I saw...

Asian Persuasion

So I had been dating this bi-racial guy (half black, half Chinese) off and on for a few months.  He was fine as hell; however, I was a little apprehensive about dating him initially for stereotypical reasons [I was afraid he would be too little in the middle], but I gave him a chance. We didn’t see each other consistently because we both had strenuous work schedules, travel, etc. He gave me a call when he returned from business travel and we went out for drinks at a restaurant on my side of town to catch up. We decided to take the party...

Kiss Kiss

So, I was driving home one day after work and traffic was heavier than usual due to construction. While stopped, I noticed that one of the construction workers was fine as all hell. A gorgeous piece of Mexican man candy! He made eyes at me, I made eyes at him, and then BAM, I [yes me, shy me!] asked the guy for his number AND he gave it to me. [Wow!!!!!!!] I just couldn’t believe it. [Did this fine ass dude really give me his number? Am I dreaming?] Well, we talked briefly a couple of times and decided to go on a movie date. We went to...

The Graduation

So I was very cool with my boyfriend’s family and had known them for close to two years. They lived out of state, about 300 miles, so I would only see them when I joined my boyfriend (when my schedule permitted) on a road trip, which was about 3-4 times a year. Anyway, my boyfriend wanted me to accompany him to visit his family for a special occasion: his little brother was graduating high school. [YAY!]  I thought that was all fine and dandy and was excited to attend the ceremony because his brother was such a great kid with a bright...

Too Honest

So I matched with a guy on a dating app and we had a few back and forth messages. He said he wanted to take me out and I give him my number. He texted me shortly thereafter with the standard “how’s the weather”, “how are you” off and on.  Although he never picked up the phone to talk to me, he attempted to see when I was free via text without officially asking me out.  He texted me a few days later to see if I wanted to meet later that night, but I told him that I had plans and suggested the following night.  He...
