Well done on getting back on the horse and everything, but…


Another internet date. He emailed me several times beforehand to say how nervous he was. And then the date rolled around:

Me: “Hi, nice to meet you finally. How are you?”

Him: “Still really nervous. This is the first date I’ve been on in twenty years”.
Me: “Well, no worries, we’ve all got to get back in the dating game at some point. When did you and your wife split up?”
Him: “Last month.”
Me: “Oh. Really? Er, OK, but isn’t that a bit soon to be dating, maybe?”
Him: “Well, why not? You never know when you might meet the love of your life! It could be you!”

  1. I had the exact same experience, just add in much too much information about the reason they split up (differing sex drives).

    1. Hi Sarah! Wow, he clearly didn’t have any filters… really not the sort of thing you need to know on a first date.
      If it’s any consolation, I once got a new boss at work. Within an hour of meeting him, he’d told me all about him and his wife’s sexual problems. I was quietly dying inside.
