I met MVWD online. I checked out M’s profile and he seemed nice enough. Looks-wise he was an average looking, but fairly attractive guy, so we talked. We talked for a week and he seemed like an educated man who was knowledgeable on social issues and the like. I figured a cute, nice, not shallow man was good enough for me. A day before we meet he mentions that he’s not into “chicks with missing teeth.” I was confused because I had all of my pearly whites plus we weren’t talking about looks at that moment. I brushed if off and we met.
We had decided to meet in front of a landmark building in my city. I’m waiting there, and about 20 minutes after our time to meet, M shows up.
1. He said on his profile that he was 5’10. He was more like 5’5.
2. I’m 5’7.
3. As soon as he says hello, I notice….he has two missing teeth. I don’t know how I missed this from his pictures online.
Now I try to be down to earth and not shallow, but I was shocked. Obviously uncomfortable, M tried to bring up random topics as we found a place to eat. I continued to engage him and laugh at his jokes.
The whole time he babbled on about how he just got out of jail three months ago for a dispute with his ex girlfriend and how he didn’t want to be a father in the first place but she “got him good.” (Huh?) All throughout eating he kept criticizing that I wasn’t eating enough food. When I said I wasn’t too hungry, he said “Yeah, of course not. Look at you!” I’m really not that thin so I’m not sure why he said that. He kept shaking his legs under the table, causing a vibration, and people kept staring. It was so awkward that I pretended to have a headache and said I’d hop on a train home.
As he walked me to the subway, he kept putting his left hand on my behind (it was summer and I was wearing short shorts) and I kept removing it. Once there, he tried to kiss me but I gave him a hug and ran down the steps. These days I’m over online dating.
