The Dating Games, as Greta and I have played them, have come to an end. What we originally thought would be a fun idea turned out to be a bust...well, at least in my case. I emailed and heard back from 2 out of the 3 men who Greta picked for me.
SarcasticDude (who I wrote about here) turned out to be a douche before we even met. It so happens that he's selfish as well. After telling him never to contact me again, I got a text message from him the other day asking if I knew any tax attorneys. Seriously, dude?! You badger me for a full body picture, making it clear that you're entirely superficial (never mind that you're not even that cute) and then have the audacity to ask me for a professional reference?! Apparently, "I wouldn't have asked you if it wasn't an emergency" is a way of downplaying that he disrespected my wishes never to hear from him again. To top it off, his follow up email on Plenty of Fish a few days later that made me wonder if I have a potential stalker on my hands.
Try as I did, BeachDude was just not dateable. His one line emails and "lols" were enough to discount him. After my date with Chief, I learned that if I have to pull teeth over text or email, there's a good chance it's going to be like that in person. To top it off, he never so much as asked me to get together for a drink...not that his 8pm-4am work schedule would have allowed for us to meet anyway. The emails with BeachDude tapered off and I haven't heard from him in a couple weeks.
While we thought it sounded like a fun idea at the game, having someone pick potential dates for me worked out worse than picking a date for myself. Ironically, Greta did pick JD for me, but I had disqualified him because we had already gone out. Considering I just had my 3rd (post second chance) date with him and things are going well, maybe the Dating Games aren't over after all...
