The girls at work were raving about Online Dating and when I showed some interest they just told me to go for it. So I did. 24th of January 2008â€¦ joined RSVPâ€¦ Little did I know how painful that would beâ€¦
First worked my way around it and sent out my first & only 3 â€œkissesâ€ as I soon found out that I did not need to send anything as my mailbox got flooded within a few daysâ€¦ Quite overwhelming and also quite addictivesâ€¦ Really enjoyed reading all the profilesâ€¦ and checking who was checking me outâ€¦
So this guy opened a chat session. He was the first kiss I sent out. The picture was of poor quality, the face was blurry but for some unknown reasons, I was compelled to send him a kiss, you knowâ€¦ a hunch, intuitionâ€¦ whatever you call itâ€¦besides his profile was interesting enough.
He started: â€œI know you from the schoolâ€¦ am the guy with the Mazda 6â€¦â€ Now I knewâ€¦ my instincts are always rightâ€¦ so I replied: â€œactually you know me from when you used to work at the shopping centre a few years back and flirted with meâ€¦.â€ Heheheâ€¦. I just had to laughJ Though I was still trying to figure out what was a Mazda 6â€¦ Maybe in Gran Turismoâ€¦ no canâ€™t remember driving any Mazdaâ€¦ but it must be a good car since he cared to mention it in the first sentence??!! And no my profile did not have any car requirementsâ€¦ so I have no idea where this came from!
We decided to meet the next day at the shopping centre for a coffee. After all I knew the guy, his son was in the same class as mine, the chemistry was thereâ€¦ but I still felt very nervous about it.
He came along with his son. A very over-protective fatherâ€¦ He talked about him, himself and heâ€¦ He did ask me a few questions of course but overall he did the talking. Then we got up and when he gave me a kiss on the cheekâ€¦ I felt little butterflies in my stomachJ. We walked down to the video game store and somehow bumped into each other and again the butterfliesâ€¦ and then he kissed me again on the cheekâ€¦ oh boy it was getting hot in hereâ€¦
We agreed on doing a dvd night during the weekâ€¦ kids includedâ€¦
Not even an hour after I left the guy, he sent me a text asking if tonight was too early for that dvd nightâ€¦ so being new at this and not sure what to do, decided to ask a girlfriend who replied: â€œsince when there is a rule book because, just do it!â€ And anyway, he had his son; I had my son and daughterâ€¦
Kids played video games while we watched a movie and talked a little bit then it was time to go home. The kids wanted to check something upstairsâ€¦ and as soon as they were out of sight he just took me in his arms and kissed meâ€¦ I have kissed many men in my life and I donâ€™t know if it was because it had been a long timeâ€¦ but gosh he knew how to kissâ€¦ could not remember ever feeling like that while being kissedâ€¦ Please donâ€™t stop was all I could thinkâ€¦ but it had to stop once the kids were on their way downstairsL.
The following Friday he text me saying that the kids had organise a sleep over at my house and asking if he could join too. He was fulltime working dad and was heavily involved with sportsâ€¦ and that night he looked very tired. He also promised his son he would sleep on the couch downstairsâ€¦ and those had no intention of falling asleep easilyâ€¦ so I just went to bed and he fell asleep on the couch. In the morning I found him reading a book on the couchâ€¦ I made pancakes for the kids and then they took offâ€¦
He did mention though that he still had to take me out for diner and since Valentineâ€™s Day was approaching, I thought he would do it on that day. But I did not hear a word from him until the following Saturday morningâ€¦ and not what I expected either, a text message: â€œHi Prisqua. Could you ask your son not to be so rough at school. My son has got skin off his knee and his elbow and is walking with a limp today. He said your son threw him to
the ground and kicked him. I know that boys will be boys and thereâ€™s always 2 sides to the storyâ€¦ but your son has done this to other kids before. Because other mothers have told me. Donâ€™t want to make a big deal. Just donâ€™t want to see my son getting hurt.â€ It took 3 texts to write this one lol and that was the end of it after a few other messages to clarify the situation but got nowhere. And about a week later he sent out a kiss to a girlfriend of mineâ€¦ to which she replied: â€œI appreciate your honestyâ€ haha
I like to nickname people in my phone book instead of deleting them or until I delete them and he gained the nickname of “coward” 🙂 I know, it is mean 🙁
