Thanks Patricia. It was a long time ago so I've recovered. ;o) To be honest I would have probably laughed if it happened to my date. We live and learn, right? Not sure how about the origin, but I've been told by several people that a bird pooping on you is good luck.

My friend (lets call her Donna) was selfishly thinking about herself. Donna was dating my blind date's roommate (lets call the roommate Bob) and Donna's mother hated Bob. My friends mother loved me and trusted me since I was a bit older and wiser than Donna. Donna figured that her mother would be more at ease and would stay off her back if she knew I would be with Donna on her date(s). So Donna arranged a double date for us four and would have continued it as long as it suited her purposes, which was to see her new boyfriend. I'm still friends with Donna. She was just young and stupid at the time. And her mother was right about the boyfriend.

P.S. When my date was shot at a few days later, he was with his girlfriend, who I knew nothing about. The people who were after him were sent by his girlfriend's father. Doesn't this get better and better. Of course, this was the story I got. Who knows the truth.

When I was in my 20s, I told a guy (someone I knew from work - not a great idea) after a few dates that I wanted to be friends. He said he accepted that but kept calling. He was fun to be with and didn't get out of line so I figured things were okay- for awhile. One red flag from the beginning was another female co-worker was his friend and confidante and couldn't stay out of things. They were overly involved in each other's personal lives and I didn't like that. He invited me to a wedding one week before the wedding. I knew the groom and he was a good guy. At the wedding, my friend sat next to his female co-worker friend and her boyfriend. Her boyfriend left his pregnant wife for her. This princess had a few drinks in her and started telling me that his ex-wife was a *itch - because she knew they were having problems but deliberately got pregnant. eyepopping Her prince of a boyfriend kept rubbing her back and calling her "babe." My "friend" or escort kept fawning over the two of them. They were a virtual threesome. He treated me like a jacket he threw over a chair....This was my punishment for choosing not to have a romance with him. I needed a vomit bucket watching the 3 of them interacting....

(Quote) Valerie-880801 said: I was on Match.com for a short time earlier this year & met someone. We seemed to have a lot in common, so we exchanged numbers and planned a date for a few days later. He sent me over 300 text messages in 3 days. I would barely have responded to one message & I would get 3 more. I should have called it off at that point, but against my better judgement I went on the date. We went out to dinner & while we were talking face to face, he was on his phone sending me text messages too! Then he proceeded to tell our waiter & 2 other servers that we met online & this was our first date. And he told me that he was sure we could be one the next Match.com commercial. I let him drive, which ended up being a huge mistake, because he tried holding my hand all the way home & when he finally dropped me off he wouldn't leave & practically mauled me. He sent pictures of me to his friends & invited me to be his guest at a wedding the following weekend & was calling me his girlfriend & wanted me to meet his friends the next day. Seriously freaked me out. I closed my Match.com account the following morning, called him & said I wasn't interested. He continued sending text messages for a while, but eventually stopped. Scary!!!

I can so relate...I am recovering from a long time, log distance relationship (he's in the military) and we get along PERFECTLY on the phone, email, texting....but whenever we are with oneanother and can actually spend time together it's not the same....somehting is wrong....missing I feel. I'm still not a 100% certain what was wrong...on either of our ends. Long distance to em just isn't natural. I need to know someone on a regular dialy basis...it's just how I'm made I think.

Thanks for sharing Jennefer and welcome to the forums.


I know right, LDR is not for everyone and sometimes it doesn't matter how far or near the person is located; the issue is not the distance, but the person. The relationship does not work out because this is not the person God wants us to be with. Sometimes we learn our lessons the hard way when a relationship fails, we blame ourselves and think we did something wrong. We cannot fix another person or wish them to become something or someone that he or she is not. We cannot force someone to love us in the way that we want or deserve. We can pray for our exes and wish these persons well, but we shouldn't let their problem become our problem. Two people connecting f2f that's what its all about. theheart

I know we should always be thankful for our life experiences including our dating experiences both good and bad, but is there anything from your dating experience that you wish you could press the "rewind" or "delete" button ?


Would love to hear about your dating experiences and hopefully get some words of wisdom from my fellow CMers


I'll start. ... A few years ago, use to date a guy who lived in another country, I did not meet this guy through CM. I decided to make a visit to his city so that I could spend time with him( BIG MISTAKE...DELETE!!). He was so unwelcoming and distant, I was left totally bewildered because I had made the trip because he had invited me. My biggest regret would probably be I was too nice Seriously though I have always on some level regretted making that trip because this guy had never visited me in my home country first. I've since learnt that in a serious relationship if a couple lives some distance apart, a man is suppose to visit a woman a few times before she visits him.

I guess for me the two dating regrets that I have are 1)Not asking a woman out who was really into me (and she was VERY pretty) and 2)Not ending a certain relationship with my first love in college way sooner than it should have ended.
