    He sounded so promising at coffee…

    Ugh. In the beginning I was picturing this sort of gritty, gruff, pot smoking, teddy bear type of biker guy, who, while looking like he could beat some ass, was really a softy.

    By the end, I was picturing an old “frat guy” type who couldn’t let go of his frat guy days, so he tries to be funny.

    Ohhh DAMNIT! I wanted him to work out okay, and he sounded so promising. But what a DICKWAD! Errrgh. At least you know NOW rather than a few dates in 🙁

    See, this kind of thing is why I just can’t with the online dating. I can’t get excited about it; I just dread having to waste my time talking to all these gross guys and being repeatedly disappointed. Yuck.

    Maybe someone needs to point out to him, “That’s not a joke, that’s just you being a jerk.”

    What a bizarre and unpleasant dinner date! He reminds me of a guy I briefly dated. I could never tell when he was joking or just lying. Even when I dumped him and he acted upset, I couldn’t tell for sure if he was really upset! Well, at least they make for good stories later.

    What a douche! BUT it does make an interesting story! Like some of your other “adventures” I feel a bit like I’m seeing this dating after 50 thing vicariously through you.

    Jana, one day Inion & I are going to sit down with you and record all your stories of your life. You are one awesome lady with an exciting life that reads better than any book!! And I mean that. As I was reading this post to Inion, she looked at me and said; “Shit, this could be a book!!” Only difference is…whereas all your other commenters were saying “Oh I had such high hopes.” “Oh he sounded like a Teddy Bear.” Inion and I were on the edge of our seats going, “Oh shit, this guys gonna turn out to be a furreak!!! Jana!! Please be careful!! Caution, detour, detour!!” lol
    But don’t give up Jana. Unfortunately Internet dating is like mining. (A ritual in these Smoky Mountains we live in and a big tourist attraction.) Most of the priceless gems were mined a long, long, time ago. So that the only ones left are buried among all the fugazi’s. (as my Italian father-in-law used to say.) What’s the point? When you finally find that special gem, you really have something worth it’s weight in gold; worth keeping!! It’s just a pain in the ass to keep mining up those fugazi’s that look authentic and pretty only to figure out you’ve got a cheap, rock that’s only purpose can be utilized as a paperweight. 😉 xoxox <3

    Good call Jana. I know a guy who is an incessant joker. It gets old ‘REALLY” fast. I am in agreement from what you said above about –> I think people who “joke” when they are really taking pleasure in making other people uncomfortable are on a huge power trip and/or incredibly insecure.
    The constant repartee can be exhausting.
    I’ve had to train and work with guys that had this sort of approach. Always one upping. I was done in by the end of the day!

    I think I dated this guy. Just kidding. 🙂 Seriously, I did date a serial liar. UGH. and an alcoholic. I finally got my head on straight and married my wonderful husband. There are a lot of “Jokers” out there.

    What a wonderful read! I was gritting my teeth during the account of your date. He sounds like my soon-to-be-ex-husband; a narcissist who forces you to dig for truth, then mocks you for believing what he says. I’m in awe that you lasted the entire date! Good luck on the next adventure – with somebody different 😉

    Talk about dodging a bullet. He sure puts his best foot forwaRd. …lose. I’m sorry you ended up paying for his meal. He probably has women losing bets to him all over the city.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
